[Ancientartifacts] Re: Faience concubine figurine. Real or fake?

Hi Gary,

No, I also believe it fake. Y
our points are good ones too.

checked the core of every broken shabti in my collection and none
have a glaze layer that looks like the one in the picture, also all
of the cores are more uniform in composition. I don't know much about
the iconography of "concubines" but I've never seen hair or a wig
with a part in the middle, it looks like a modern hairdo. The face is
ugly and doesn't reflect much respect for the female. The glaze just
appears unusual and the discoloration not natural, but that could be
the picture. Are you now going to tell me it is authentic? Ha! Ha!
