Question posted in the General Law category relating to Eastern Cape
I need a Letter of Provenance, for a letter I found in a safe many years ago, and would like to sell through Christie's Auctioneers in London.
The representative from Christies asked me to get a letter of provenance explaining how I came in possession of the document, on a lawyer's letterhead. So far, the lawyers I have approached don't seem to understand my request.
Is it that hard to understand?
How do I get a letter like this?
