The Certificate of Authenticity
Each print is stamped and signed with Curio & Co.’s own verification stamp. That stamp – which is kept under lock and key at the Curio & Co. headquarters – lets you know that your piece has gone through Curio & Co.’s rigorous verification process. Only one person in the world has access to that stamp, so when you see it, you know you’ve got the real deal right there.
Keeping A Catalog
We carefully catalog each piece in our archives, and once released, it will come with its own Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate provides all of the information a collector needs to do their own registration, and includes details about the rarity of the piece and information we’ve unearthed that the uninitiated won’t know. (Feel free to show off your extensive knowledge in front of your friends.) Finally, the certificate is embossed with the company’s seal, featuring our motto, “Ludus, Sinceritas, Novitas”.
Louis Smeedley, our Head of Archives, recommends you keep your certificate in a secure place such as a document safe, safety deposit box or combination-secured card catalog cabinet. (He’s fussy about protecting investments.)

A new exhibition looks at the playful side of our collections.
Come see Curio & Co. up close and on the walls in a new exhibition at the Atelier Olschinsky Art Store in Vienna.
Titled ‘Let’s Play,’ the exhibition will look back at the last six years in Curio & Co. history. All your favorites will be represented – from Frank and His Friend to Spaceman Jax, from vintage ads to vintage time machines, and plenty of surprises and never-before-seen pieces.
Plus, the exhibition will include an in-depth look at our latest project: The Tarot of Musterberg. The complete deck will be on display, as well as larger-than-life versions of our favorite cards that are sure to deal up fun and fantasy.
Prints of many of the items on display will be for sale at the gallery as well as on their art store website.
Previous shows at the gallery have featured really terrific artists, and we’re honored to be included in that group. From digital landscapes to imaginative topography, each artist brings a wide rage of variety to the gallery. And what you can always expect from Atelier Olschinsky is impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail.
We’ll be there for the opening, enjoying the trip down memory lane – looking at past projects and how far we’ve come, celebrating the completion of the present project and looking ahead to see where we might go next. If you’re in Vienna, please stop by and join us: Let’s Play!
