Rare Erte Courvoisier 8 Bottle Set For Sale

I have a full set of Erte Courvoisier Cognac collection. There was only 1200 of the first seven bottles made and only 4000 of the eighth bottle made.  All eight have the box and plastic sleeve, and the bottle tags.  Boxes and tags are in excellent condition.  The plastic sleeves are in decent condition also.  Bottles 2 thru 8 have the certification card included.  Bottle 3 has a card about Erte's death.  Bottles 4 thru 8 have a registration card included.  I have many more pictures if needed, and will do my best to answer a questions you may have.  If you are interested in these please know that I absolutly can not take anything below $9,000 as the 7 bottle collection was valued at over $10,000 back in 2008.  If you are interested or want to know more, you can contact me via e-mail at dholden@porkchops.com.  Below is a short story about the collection.  Although the story does not mention the eighth bottle, it is very real and even more valuable.

Courvoisier is selling off the very last sets of its rare bottles designed by famed Art Deco artist and fashion illustrator Erté 20 years ago. The legendary cognac house commissioned the seven bottle set from the Russian-born artist for its extraordinary blend of precious Grande Champagne cognacs, some dating back to 1892. The last remaining sets which had been held in reserve will now be sold for $10,000 apiece; only eight of them are making their way to the U.S. market in November and can be pre-ordered here . Each of the seven bottles' designs represents a different facet of the cognac making process:

Vigne (Vine) shows the importance of the soil and environment to the grapes produced to make cognac.
Vendanges (Harvest) celebrates the passion of perfection for which Courvoisier is best known.
Distillation illustrates the process of distillation as a woman riding a volatile giant peacock.
Vieillissement (Aging) symbolizes the aging process as a robed female emerging from darkness.
Degustation (Tasting) shows the blending process of the cognacs. 
L'Esprit du Cognac (The Spirit of Cognac) interprets the cognac spirit as a woman standing majestically surrounded by grapes.
La Part Des Anges (Angel's Share) symbolizes part of the aging process where some of the spirits' volume is lost through evaporation.
