Money talks …
I remember reading a report many years ago, after the initial batch of 140? Simplicity were made, sold and done…some wealthy Chinese collectors was able to “convince” the Master to make another 20 unique pieces.
In recent years, a big collector and friend was also helping to build a new “subscription” 20-yr anniversary batch of like what, 20? You have to write him an email, selling your soul and describing how low you are (beg) to deserve that allocation 😂
