When Nicholas heard Scott’s words, he suddenly felt annoyed. He had already given Scott an out. He didn’t expect that Scott not only didn’t appreciate it, but also became firmer.
He stared at Scott and then said coldly, “Buddy, you’re under thirty, right? How dare you question my father?”
“It’s just a matter of fact. Your father does have a high reputation in the appraisal world, but this does not mean that he will never make mistakes in his life. Furthermore, age is not an absolutely important factor. If your father is here, he will definitely not talk to me like this, “Scott said.
Nicholas laughed at once, and said, “Guy, are you kidding me? You think that in appraisal’s industry, age is important. If you don’t spend time, how can you get so much experience? Seeing that you are here to make trouble, I would advise you to stop this idea, it is not good for you.”
“This person must have come to make trouble. How dare he say that there is a third fake here. He hasn’t found the two just now.
He is stirring up trouble.” At that time, someone shouted loudly.
When everyone heard it, they immediately nodded, thinking that what the person said was reasonable. Scott didn’t even find the two fakes, and now suddenly he stood out and said that there was a third fake, and it really sounded like he was making trouble.
“Boy, I think you still don’t make trouble here. You stand up and say that there is a third one. But why didn’t you find the two fakes?” another person asked Scott.
Scott glanced at the man and said, “I found them out, but I didn’t say it.” Everyone laughed, and did not hide their ridicule at Scott.
“Boy, shame on you. He has already told those two fakes. Now you come and say that you found out but didn’t say. Who do you think will believe you?”
“I just pissed myself with laughter. I didn’t expect that there would be such a shameless person, he couldn’t be more barefaced.”
“He is definitely the most shameless person I have ever seen. Now that you have found them out, why didn’t you say it then? Now that you have come to say there is a third fake, which is really impudent.”
Maddox, Brodie and Annie were the only three people present who knew that Scott did not lie. When Nicholas told them the two fakes, Scott had already pointed out what the two fakes were.
And he did find out but didn’t say it. It was just that it was indeed a bit difficult for others to believe as he said it now.
Maddox walked to Scott and whispered to Scott, “Mr. Scott, we can’t explain it clearly, or we should leave it alone. Even if there is a third fake, it has nothing to do with us.”
Scott turned to look at Maddox and said, “If it were someone else, I might not say it today, but this matter has something to do with Felix. Since I am here today, I naturally have to say it. Even if Felix knows it, he won’t say anything.” When Maddox heard Scott’s words, he didn’t know what to say, so he sighed helplessly.
Both Brodie and Annie looked at Scott with some incomprehension. Although they knew that Scott’s level of appraisal was high, he shouldn’t question Felix in front of so many people.
When Nicholas heard the cynicism of the people around Scott, a sneer appeared on his face. Then he suddenly wondered what the third fake Scott was talking about.
If Scott really came to make trouble, then he would definitely not be able to tell what the third fake was. Even if he did choose one casually, it would later prove that Scott was lying under everyone’s attention. And then, he would definitely be even more embarrassed.
What’s more, his father was in Rare Treasure Store today, and he was now resting on the second floor. He could go and call Felix down if necessary. By that time, how could this kid explain to explain?
“Everyone, since this man insists on saying that there is a third fake in these collections of my father, let him talk about which one it is and how did he see that it is a fake, OK?” Nicholas said.
“Even if you ask him to say it, he definitely can’t tell it,” someone said with disdain.
Everyone turned their gazes on Scott, wanting to see which one Scott would say was the third fake.
Scott didn’t talk nonsense. He pointed to a blue and white porcelain vase on the cabinet over there and said, “The blue and white porcelain vase on the second display cabinet.”
Everyone turned their heads to look at the blue and white porcelain vase. Someone quickly retorted, “The blue and white porcelain vase is a cultural relic unearthed from the Porcelain Capital in Yuan Dynasty. I have a very deep research on porcelain.
I just studied the blue and white porcelain vase carefully. That vase can never be a fake.”
Nicholas also turned his head and glanced at the blue and white porcelain vase, and then said, “Buddy, since you think this vase is a fake, why don’t you tell me how you know it.”
“Blue and white porcelain originated in the Yuan Dynasty, and the calcination technology at that time was very mature. The blue and white porcelain made at that time was indeed very beautiful, but even so, there were some flaws in the craftsmanship of that period, one of which was the brightness of the porcelain. The blue and white porcelain on the display cabinet is much brighter than the blue and white porcelain of the Yuan Dynasty. Although the difference is very subtle, it is not difficult to see that the blue and white porcelain on the display cabinet should be made during the Qing Dynasty.”
“Although the producer deliberately worked hard on details in order to make it more like being from the Yuan Dynasty, and used many special methods to make it more chronological, the manufacturing technology of blue and white porcelain in Qing Dynasty has been far ahead of that in Yuan Dynasty. Even if the makers have a way to make it look more ancient, it is still impossible to reproduce the brightness of the Yuan Dynasty.”
“So, this blue and white porcelain should be an imitation of the Yuan Dynasty in the Qing Dynasty. The two dynasties are more than two hundred years apart. If it is really sold, it will have a lot of bad impact on Felix’s reputation.”
Scott looked at everyone.
Everyone looked at Scott with a little surprise, but they didn’t expect him to be able to distinguish the age of something from the brightness, which was really incredible.
Obviously, based on this alone, everyone didn’t believe Scott’s words, they still felt that Felix’s level was more convincing.
Nicholas also obviously did not believe Scott’s judgment. He rolled his eyes and said, “Everyone, what this little brother said
may be true, but it is not convincing. It just so happens that my father is here today. So, I will invite him down, so that he can judge whether this little brother is right.”
Everyone’s eyes brightened up when they heard Nicholas’s words. They didn’t expect Felix to be here. If Felix could get down, he would surely be able to reveal the true colors of this troublemaker.
Many people looked at Scott and became gloat. In their opinion, when Felix and Scott were facing each other, Scott definitely couldn’t continue to pretend.
Brodie and Annie didn’t know whether they should be happy or sad at this time. They both wanted to see Felix, but they didn’t want to see Felix under this situation.
They came with Scott. If Scott angered Felix, they would definitely be involved. No matter how he explained it, Felix would probably not have a good impression of them.
Brodie was a little bit regretful now that he came to this place with Scott.
Annie was not as excited as before. She was still a student, very young, and she had the rebelliousness of young people. Now Scott could not care about the views of so many people, and firmly speak his own thoughts, which made she have a hint of appreciation to Scott.
Of course, it was only a little bit. If Felix, whom she admired, had a negative impression of her because of Scott, she would definitely not forgive Scott.
Nicholas went upstairs amidst everyone’s surprise and came to the door of the room where Felix was resting.
Felix was sitting in front of the table in the room at this time. He was almost 70 years old and already had white hair, but this further highlighted his rich experience.
He wore large glasses and was holding a smartphone in his hand, staring at the content on the phone screen carefully.
There was a test report on it, the content of the report was exactly the chronological analysis of the isotope dating of the blue and white porcelain vase in the Yuan Dynasty.
When he first got this vase, Felix knew at a glance that it was a blue and white porcelain vase unearthed in the Yuan Dynasty, but he looked at the vase some time ago and always felt that something was wrong, but he couldn’t tell.
So, he found a friend and asked someone to help measure the age of the vase by isotope dating to see if it was made in the Yuan Dynasty.
His friend just sent him the test report, so he got up to check the results.
The test report clearly stated that the vase was 325 years old, which meant it was made in the Qing Dynasty.
After seeing this result, Felix immediately widened his eyes. He didn’t expect that he really made a mistake. He immediately stood up and called Nicholas over and asked him to take back the vase on the display cabinet.
At this moment, there was a knock at the door.
Felix hurried over to open the door, and saw that Nicholas was outside the door, so he said hurriedly, “Go and get the blue and white porcelain vase. Don’t exhibit it.”
Nicholas was about to say that someone was making trouble and insisted that the Yuan Dynasty vase was an imitation made in Qing Dynasty. He didn’t expect that Felix asked him to bring the blue and white porcelain vase, which made him be stunned.
There was only one blue and white porcelain vase on the display cabinet.
“Father, what happened to that vase? Why did you want to take it back suddenly?” Nicholas asked, staring at Felix.
Felix glanced at Nicholas with a little embarrassment, and said, “I made a mistake. That vase is not from the Yuan Dynasty.
Please go and get it quickly. Don’t let anyone buy it. It will ruin my reputation.”
Nicholas was startled, his face was covered with incredibleness, and he asked, “No… not from the Yuan Dynasty? Could it be from the Qing Dynasty?”
Felix glanced at Nicholas suspiciously, and asked, “How do you know?”
Nicholas swallowed. He didn’t expect that Scott was actually right. The blue and white porcelain vase was indeed not from the Yuan Dynasty, and Felix admitted that it was from the Qing Dynasty. It must be true.
It turned out that Scott really didn’t come to make trouble, and it was a big mistake for him to let so many people mock Scott.
“Father…Father, I may have done something wrong,” Nicholas said to Felix with regret.
“What’s the matter?” Felix frowned.
“There was someone who insisted on saying that the blue and white porcelain vase was a fake, it was imitated in the Qing Dynasty. I think he was here to make trouble, I led everyone to laugh at him. I said I would invite you to go down to confront him and let him understand that he was wrong,” Nicholas said honestly.
Expression on Felix’s face changed. One was unexpectedly that someone could see that the blue and white porcelain vase was an imitation, and the other was because Nicholas even made everyone laugh at that person. That person could rely on his eyes to see that the blue and white porcelain vase was an imitation. How extraordinary he was!
“You really wound me up, hurry up and apologize to him, otherwise my reputation will be ruined by you!”
