Re: [Ancientartifacts] Question about an Ebay Shabti

I am familiar with this TL testing lab.It's the only one in Germany. I have been there (S of Stuttgart) I know mr Kotalla . He is TOTALLY integer ! If he reports in writing, it's old ,within the range of measuring accuracy.

Hi Albert
I am not familiar with this TL testing lab, but the shabti looks entirely authentic to me, and the seller is reputable - he has listed many shabtis over the years and I don't recall seeing any that looked suspect! 
I don't read German so can't see how condition is described in the listing, but it does look as if the foot may bave been broken and rejoined.  Not a vital point, but perhaps a consideration when deciding how much to bid.
In fact I think the seller is a member here and perhaps can tell us more about the TL lab?

Subject: [Ancientartifacts] Question about an Ebay Shabti

A dealer on the recommended list has posted an item which has caught my
interest and before I bid on it, I'm just wondering what other more
knowledgable collectors think of it.
http://cgi.ebay. com/ws/eBayISAPI .dll?
ViewItem&rd= 1&item=150254896 142&ssPageName= STRK:MEBI: IT&ih=005 or
http://tinyurl. com/4cnygc . It says it comes with a copy of a TL-
analysis performed on a shabti of the same group, but I remember
reading that there was some debate as to if a TL-analysis could really
date faience. All your opinions like always are always appreciated.

Once again, Thank you,
