FAKES + False &/or Misleading Descriptions on eBay - BEWARE!

MORE and more FAKES, Rejects, Damaged, False + SLICK Descriptions on eBay- Unbelievable? BEWARE eBay Item #110429387325 & 250408483875 are FAKES + #320360265660 the 12 are NOT Knife Rests by either Gallia or Christofle! + #290302594384, NOT B. Rabier, & Beware of Mixed 'SETS' of Gallia Knife Rests. Look at this SET with Misleading Heading & Description, #160261422099. Seller knows that these are NOT what is cleverly suggested in the Description. Not Rabier, not Gallia nor Christofle. Item #160261422099 is SO MISLEADING. My advice, ask lots of Questions + Beware of Sellers that Sell 1 Animal and Mix in other Animals NOT by Gallia"

SINCE 1830, Christofle has always collaborated with the greatest designers: from the Dane, Christian Fjerdingstad to the Italian Gio Ponti in the 1930s and 1940s, from the Frenchman Faniel to the Finn Tapio Wirkkala in the 1950s and 1960s. More recently, Sylvain Dubuisson, Roger Tallon, Gae Aulenti, Martin Szekely, Andrée Putman and Adam D. Tihany have marked the Christofle collections with their talent.
