I doubt that I will ever be able to purchase antiques from auction houses like Christie’s or Sotheby’s (unless my husband’s devoted efforts with the weekly lottery tickets pays off some day), but I empathize with those who have purchased items from John Hobbs, and the uncertainties they are now experiencing about their antique treasures.

The optimist in me hopes that this issue is resolved quickly and equitably. Time will tell.
