[Ancientartifacts] Re: 'Good' Seller with poor COA

In defense of Ernie, who I don't know, you guys seem to think this
acetone test done by a collector (not a recognized expert in
restoration) settles the whole matter. First, that is NOT proof of
restoration. You would need more proof than that. Have you tried
blacklight? And, you have indeed now altered the piece. Suppose you
removed original pigment and the piece is 100% accurately described?
Once again, your test isn't enough to determine if Ernie's description
was not accurate. I suggest you take good images of the piece and post
them. Let people see the piece, and see if they can see restoration.
Unless it is done by quite a talented person, experienced collectors
should be able to see something.
