[Ancientartifacts] Re: dougie9350 - questionable syro hittite horse

Hi Tony,

Genuine Syro-Hittite votive figures which are intact can probably be
counted on one hand: these figures were made to be ritually broken
and distributed as offerings in fields for fertility or under
building foundations - the likelihood of one appearing on ebay and
not being fiercely bid upon by dealers such as myself is improbable
though of course not impossible. The reason I wouldn't personally bid
on this example is that I know there are many fakes of this type in
circulation and that the appearance of the surface is consistent with
the fakes which I've seen and handled in person.

Newsflash: genuine items on ebay! I noticed a sale via fleabay-live
which seems to be offering genuine antiquities - Estates Unlimited
Inc. - I only looked at the Classical pieces but they looked pretty
good and many appear (I think) to have come from Howie Nowes who's a
perfectly straight and proper dealer in my opinion.
