Re: [Ancientartifacts] New seller of fakes



Thanks so much for the info.  I have always wondered about these on ebay.  I figured mine was a fake.  I see that seller also has ancient roman rings.....I guess they are fake as well.  Its so hard buying things over the internet.


Take care,

Hi Sandy
The short answer is from plenty of experience and seeing these on sale in tourist bazaars in Egypt many times! 
In more depth, real shabtis don't have holes through the side of the head like this, and also beware of shabtis with high detail and incised glyphs on the front and no detail on the back: cheap fakes are easily made simply by pushing a shabti into a piece of clay and removing it to make a mould for many more.

How do you know they are fakes??  I bought into one of these not that long ago and I am sure its fake too.  But how can you tell?
