We do not provide, as a matter of ordinary business practice, Certificates of Authenticity for our sales. At Coup de Foudre LLC we believe our detailed invoice offers superior legal protection to you, the buyer. Nevertheless, we recognize some buyers desire such paperwork either as an additional assurance or to pass along to a subsequent purchaser. Toward this end we have developed a certificate that utilizes items from the list below, along with other information deemed relevant.  For works on paper the information is somewhat different.

People or Culture
Place of Origin
Date of Creation
Material & Technique
