<p>A close inspection of thecanvas revealed a canvase made from precious calf skin, it is believed to be the skin of an animal cured by Tanneurs dating as far back as 1898. This is indeed impressive, but hardly constitutes an old master by Michelangelo who is said to be born circa 1475 .</p>

<p>A close examination of the frame also revealed some telling matters. The frame is made from modern pine, the type commonly found in Ikea Furniture, and unlikely therfore to be of any real historical significance. So what conclusion can be drawn from the evidence if any?</p>

<p>The findings proved to be even more shocking than was originally suspected, the team discovered that the canvas and artwork were in fact not from the same work as originally thought, but the team had uncovered two separate masterpieces.</p>
<p>The Tanneur, founded in 1898 by a leather worker and a tanner, is a French company specialised in leather goods, manufacturing a wide choice of handbags, wallets and leather luggage.</p>
<p>A leather worker and a beautiful tanner decided to create seamless leather wallets. They were awarded for their inventions at the 1900 World Fair. In 1914, Le Tanneur was chosen to supply the French army, which also allowed him to gain notoriety</p>
<p>In 1974, the founder retired. The company employs more than 1,000 people and is the number one French tannerie. It is now held by the Industrial and Commercial Credit (CIC) at 52% and by a British group, Barrow-Hepburn, at 48% 2.
<p>In 1978, Le Tanneur launched the Tann's briefcase, a two-tone bag made of leather crust that met with some success1. However, in June 1985, the company filed for bankruptcy. The Belley Commercial Court accepts the takeover bid by the Anglo-American group Panson and Whittemore, in association with the French leather goods maker, Andr, Lux (who owns Upla, activity allowing a synergy of distribution in shops). 262 jobs were retained out of the 664 remaining at the time of filing for bankruptcy, with two production workshops in Belley and Bourg-en-Bresse2.
<p>On August 2, 2011, 85.73% of the capital of the company becomes the property of Qatar Luxury Company, property of Sheikha Mozah, one of the three wives of the Emir of Qatar, </p>
