Mid-Century issues Certificates of Authenticity or Certificates of Origin signed by art critics, experts in the field.
Issuing Certificates is subject to certain conditions, detailed as follows, and brings a series of benefits:
- the possibility to return a product, with no time limit: if an independent commission, made up of a minimum of 3 experts, contests in writing the accuracy of a Certificate issued by us, we take upon us to buy back the respective objects, regardless of the time that has passed since it was acquired;
- guarantee of the piece’s quality: if, at any time, you will wish, for whatever reason, to sell any one of the objects purchased, the accompanying Certificate will represent a real proof of its value;
- a compelling description of details (many times, invisible): if you make an acquisition with the purpose of offering the respective object as a gift. The Certificate will act as a ‘calling card’ for the product, containing essential and clear information regarding its qualities as art/ design piece.
Certificate of Authenticity.
We issue Certificates of Authenticity for all the objects we offer for sale and for which we know all the essential details necessary for unequivocal identification. This data must include the name of the designer and/ or the workshop or factory.
Certificate of Origin.
We issue Certificates of Origin for all the objects we have for sale and for which we know all essential data required for unequivocal identification. This data doesn’t, however, include the name of the designer and/ or the workshop or the factory.
On each product’s page it is mentioned whether the respective object is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity or by a Certificate of Origin. In case none of these two notes exist, it means that we were unable to find enough data regarding the respective piece and, consequently, we cannot issue any one of the two types of Certificates.
The Certificates issued by us are embossed with the Mid-Century seal. In the absence of said seal, the Certificate is not valid.
