The Silver Certificate is our classical expertise and contains the following information:
- The photo of the Ibeji
- The height
- The place of origin
- The degree of rarity
- The carver or workshop, if known
- The “Catalogue of the Ibeji” or “ Encyclopedia of the Ibeji” file number
COST OF THE SILVER EXPERTISE
The cost of the Silver Expertise is 160 USD for each single Ibeji and 200 USD for a pair. This cost included the shipping and insurance cost to send back the Ibeji and the certificate. In case of more than one expertise the cost will be reduced.
We will not ask for any payment for the statuette submitted if the expert will not sign the expertise for any reason, such as the authenticity of the patina or the actual tribal use.
In these cases the owner will have to pay only the cost to ship back the statuette.
Method of payment accepted are Paypal, credit card, wire transfer or personal check.
