HISTORY REVISITED
We first came in contact with Ebay seller NARUKO years ago and exactly like a bad penny, he keeps showing up although he has been out of the Tiffany spotlight for a few years. His latest offering is a "Tiffany" window that our advisors from the East coast to the West coast state in no uncertain verbiage that the window was not made by Tiffany. No big deal and after reading the listing you can get the feeling that NARUKO - aka Gary Braverman - is not all that convinced that it is a genuine Tiffany window himself. However, he does state that the window carries his "authenticity guarantee' for whatever that is worth. From his listing: MY CLAIM AND GUARANTEE ARE THAT THESE 3 PANELS WERE MADE BY TIFFANY STUDIOS AND MY GUARANTEE IS THE SET COMES WITH A MONEY BACK GUARANTEE AS LONG AS THE SET IS RETURNED WITHIN A 3 MONTHS LIMIT" and "BUYER MUST PRESENT A SIGNED LETTER ON A TIFFANY EXPERTS LETTERHEAD STATING THAT THE 3 PANELS WERE NOT MADE BY TIFFANY STUDIOS". It would seem that NARUKO would at least offer to pay for the postage both ways and the buyer's cost to get another evaluation. Best to ask first.

His next demand is probably a good idea as he states that the "Venue for resolution of any legal dispute is New York City NY" - how many sellers put that in their listings? - which is where his partner - R.A.G. Antiques has his shop. The owner at that time and a partner to Braverman was JACK SHAOUL who was involved in filing an insurance claim for a painting that was supposed to have been damaged by a water leak. He was caught when his employee testified that the painting was hidden in a closet after the water damage and supplied a photo of the window - undamaged - with a photo of a New York newspaper showing a date after the water damage. Years later there was a fake Tiffany window sold and the NYC court found that the owner of R.A.G. - aka Universe Antiques - was guilty of selling a fake window to a gentleman who was promised that the window was genuine. The buyer wanted to donate a window to a church and all he got for his 1.3 million dollars was some courtroom drama but the verdict came in as expected and the donor and his agent got their money back. Surely if there was a court fight over this window, NARUKO's partner would not want to be seen in that courtroom again. JACK SHAOUL seems to have other legal problems as can be read in the articles mentioned below. We suggest you familiarize yourself with other articles we have written on this seller and his partner and we now furnish you with their titles and location:
1. PSSTS, WANNA BUY A TIFFANY WINDOW Page 17
2. FINALLY A REST - Page 18
3. FINALLY A REST - CHAPTER 2 - Page 21
4. FINALLY A REST - CHAPTER 3 - Page 21
The Maine Antique Digest reported on the trial regarding the window. The MAD article states that the particular window mentioned was in the custody of the FBI from 1992 to 1996 as evidence in another fraud case in which Shaoul served 40 months in a federal prison for a conviction of "mis-attribution of art works" along with 11 counts of mail fraud, perjury and attempting to suborn perjury. The judge sanctioned him as "FRAUD". Sometimes what is old is not always genuine and sometimes they just never learn.

CHANGES IN THE ABOVE LISTING
NARUKO has decided 2 days after the listing appeared that a return window of 3 months is way too long and has changed the listing to show the period of return will now be 15 days. Keep you eye on the listing as other changes will probably be made and we can only hope one of them will be the total removal of this fake Tiffany window.

MORE FROM NARUKO
NARUKO has listed another window that HE attributes to Tiffany. What has that attribution got to be worth?

MORE FROM AND ABOUT THE NEW YORK GUYS


NARUKO
Yet another window that is not a Tiffany window has been posted by the team of Jack Shaoul and Gary Braverman and this time the window is not guaranteed by either of them - who would trust their judgment anyway - but for provenance the listing states that Bonhams says it is a Tiffany window. There are several very knowledgeable experts in Tiffany windows in New York and the Northeast and we suggest if you have any interest, you contact one of them. Knowledge about Tiffany windows has changed bunches since this window was determined to be a Tiffany by Bonhams ten years ago. Our advice to you if you are interested in this window, make absolutely sure that Bonhams goes on paper in 2016 and states that it is a genuine Tiffany window. You have read above about the exploits of these two and they can be trusted no further than you can toss them. The window has been around for years and many dealers have seen it. At the asking price, it is a bargain but only if it is genuine. The window advisors to TiffanyFakes say it is not Tiffany and we will put our faith in their opinion as they have nothing to gain or lose. The next thing to consider is the reputation, or lack thereof, of Braverman and Shaoul. Other than the legal problems of Shaoul which are well known - see above - less is know about Braverman. His listings mention his feedback and asked the question "want to be protected on your Ebay purchases - Then read my feedback - it is my Ebay history of selling for 16 years". We did read his feedback and we now offer a few of his feedbacks taken directly from Ebay. They are:
worst ebay experience ever, not old or original as advertised. reproductions!
DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS EBAYER. PHONY DESCRIPTION, DID NOT HONOR AGREEMENT
Received jars. Chip on one not defined by seller. S&H was outrageous
SELLS FAKES, WON'T HONOR GUARANTEE, LIES & MORE LIES, GETS VERY VERY NASTY,CROOK
sells false goods beware gets nasty contact me for full nightmare beware conman
VERY MISLEADING glass window was not antique LISTED IN the category antiques
FRAUD! "Estate Antique" NEW REPRO GETS NASTY NO REFUND CROOK! CALL POLICE
Painting very poor quality, sold for high price. Refused return. Slow delivery
took 28 days to receive - misrepresented- clock mvnt not original/broken mspring
told shade was stolen never received

I PAID 1850.00 50.00 FOR INSURANCE ON ITEM ARRIVED DAMAGED. RETURNED
SELLER LIED, PORTHOLES DON'T MATCH, GLASS WAS BROKEN, OTHER NEGS. TELL IT ALL!!!
seller lied didn't say figurine is broken and glued allover don't refund $500
The act of lying seems to be a common thread in Braverman' dealings. It does not appear that his claim of "NARUKO SAFE AND SECURE EBAY DEALER SINCE 1998" is an accurate statement. Also as with his last window, he makes the statement that "VENUE FOR RESOLUTION OF ANY LEGAL DISPUTE IS KINGSTON. NY" while the venue for the other above window is New York City. Important to have that in your listings? Of course it is.
All exactly as taken from Ebay. This is what you will be dealing when you deal with Naurko - Gary Braverman - and the question to you is do you want to get involved knowing of his past dealings. Do not let this attractive price fool you because shipping and returning a glass window no matter who made it is an expensive proposition and it will be your responsibility to insure that it is returned and at your cost.

DO NOT BE ALARMED
Several people have advised that we are incorrect regarding the information about shipping charges and a check with Ebay confirms our mistake. If you were to purchase a window from NAURKO - Gary Braverman - who stated that the window was a Tiffany Studios window and that statement was false, you can return the window to him and in addition to getting your purchase price back, Ebay will see that you get the shipping charges, both "from" and "to" refunded also. We suggest you check with Ebay yourself before you commit to making a purchase from NAURKO. More of his listing statements that are incorrect and downright lies. What did you expect?

(REMOVED BY SELLER)
PRIVATE LISTING
We have warned you before and we will repeat the warning again. If you are bidding on an item where the seller has made the "BIDDERS' IDENTITIES PROTECTED" or if you see where a bidder has made their bids private, you need to question why this is necessary.
There is much information to be learned when you check the list of bidders and see this
attempt by either the seller or the bidder to hide their identity. "Why?" is the first
question that should come to mind.

These Indian fakes come in
about 6 or 7 different types and the common thread is that all
have a fake and fraudulent signature. This seller is NOT new to TiffanyFakes and has offered other fakes before. The two shown can be yours for $999 but we are sure that the seller meant $9.99 for both
.

THE TAIWAN INDIANS ABOVE LEFT
MEDIA1ANTIQUES, a seller who has graced our pages several times before, has continued to offer the Indians above. Although clearly and very poorly signed as TIFFANY STUDIOS, the seller now wants you to believe they were made by Tiffany & Company and as such has reduced the price from $999 to $742. Such a deal. Dealing with sellers like this can be very harmful for your financial well being. These pieces have been around for many years and on our site for many years.

ON THE RIGHT

Normally we do not become
involved with damaged or repaired Tiffany Studios items, of which this is not, but this particular example is an exception. First off, it has 8 very
obvious staples holding it together.
Then an very obvious Dremel
signature and finally, the seller only wants $2500 for it.
Hurry.
