Complaint Review: Ellis Antiques - Collingswood New Jersey
Ellis Antiques ELLIS ANTIQUES Et BIJOUX, FRANCESCA ELLIS ESTATE SALES Dishonest and Unethical Antique Dealer! Collingswood , New Jersey
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Our good deed turns into Sour Grapes
This dealer paid us $150 for over 30 antiques. She said they were practically worthless in today's market. We desperately needed money that weekend for our legal bills and we trusted her to give us an honest opinion. She said that 150.00 was very generous and we would not get any better price. We checked with other dealers afterwards and found that almost all of the items were worth between 75.00 and 300.00 a piece at a conservative estimate. We did not except to receive full value for the items, of course, but $150 is disgraceful.
Look in her Ebay store. She is selling the two Jasperware dishes for $159 and $59.00. And that is only two of them! She got four of them and four discontinued Lladro, four Shawnee pottery pieces that belonged to my grandmother, a complete Paul Cardew tea set and an Egyptian marble statue that belonged to my grandfather to name just a few things. This woman is a thief. It is bad enough we had to sell things that had been in our family for three generations to try to keep our house out of foreclosure. Being cheated like this is the ultimate indigniture. Shame on you Ellis Antiques!
Customers, do you want to do business with a disreputable dealer who lies so baldly about the value of antiques? We are filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and exploring other chanels.
