Hi Joy,

Not that I mind that they once flooded the market!
I did not mean to imply they once flooded the market. I think Bennett was suggesting they may have been more numerous than some other of the 'officially elite' Anatolian PRs. These days, collectors are more discriminating than merely to respond to a label in knee jerk fashion. But everybody respects a nice old Melas. For my own part, I always liked its distinctive palette, which is well exemplified by your piece.
