I have been on contact with Mr Davies by email. He protests  very much that he sells only genuine artefacts.
Jerry.


one makes oneself unpopular with the crooks, if you show them their fakes :-)

He sells a lot of replicas as genuine artefacts

Most of the "genuine items" listed can be found in our replica section http://ancientartifakes.net/smf/index.php/topic.773.0.html

Update on contact with Mr Davies.
See from emails below.

He says: "I will make an extra effort to avoid any items that i am dubious about, and if i am in doubt about anything, i will not sell it, and in return, you can put your attention on someone who is a real problem, how does that sound?"

You could answer that you know the dealers he bought from (and then list the replica seller)

As I say above look who Mr Davies buys from

https://www.ebay.com/sch/art*collection/m.html?_trksid=p3692

If link not work, try this one: https://tinyurl.com/yd4cydpj


…………who sells ONLY reproductions!
Then they appear on Mr Davies listings as genuine!


And from  ancientground

https://www.ebay.de/sch/ancientground/m.html?item=261685544121&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

………..who sells many fakes/reproductions  as well as some genuine

Unfortunately not getting anywhere with Mr Davies.

Have been trying to give him the benefit of the doubt – that he is not deliberately selling fakes, just doesn’t know anything about antiquities.

I wrote to him: (and then later explained briefly why these are not genuine)




But as you do not seem willing to look on the forum at what is there about you, (and I can understand your reluctance as it might be unsettling for you to read it all) we would like you to remove from sale at least the following items , which are all definitely not as you describe them: they are not ancient.

We would like to give you the benefit of the doubt and if you can behave sensibly we will make sure that that is reflected on the artifakes forum. It is even possible that your details there would be entirely removed. All depends on you. If you cannot respond as we feel is appropriate we will not contact you anymore but take other action we feel appropriate. This is not meant to be a threat but just simply a statement of how things are.

Hi Jerry
 
As i've said my items are genuine and it is impossible for you to tell me they are not, especially from a picture, i have looked on your forum and i don't see any evidence of anything..There is about five of you throwing accusations at me - Why do you want to push me away from ebay? Sending threatening messages is certainly not a way to get me to do anything if you continue to carry on like that i will block your email and we will have no further contact.


I don’t think I have been “threatening” (look at my emails in previous posting)

Is it possible that he just doesn’t know anything about antiquities?
The screenshots below show that he just has no idea!!
He is now a member here (he says so) so he should be able to see our evidence, but he is still in denial.

What to do?

Jerry

Hi,

I am new to here. It’s an eye opener!!!!

I did myself buy something from this man which was told to me as Mycenaean pottery. It turns out  genuine but  not Mycenaean , but  Cypriote Bronze Age. Well known antiquities dealer told me that Mycenaean pottery found in Cyprus and also sent me this link http://www.persee.fr/doc/mom_1955-4982_2004_act_41_1_2346

When I spent a few minutes “researching” this seller now  I find this and place the photos below.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANCIENT-ROMAN-ERA-BRONZE-STATUETTE-DIANA-VERY-RARE-/152902569630

but see   https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Roman-Bronze-Figurine-of-Goddess-Diana/282870839239?hash=item41dc6a77c7:g:13UAAOSw4GVYIeSz

This is bad bad bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The colour can be changed easily. Can he explain that please!!!???

Cheerio,
Kelly,

The evidence mounts up.
It is not too late for him to remove all the fakes. He can do a nice business with the coins and other genuine things he sells.

Mr Davies can't go on claiming that he sincerely believes such as these are genuine!

Probably bought from a seller such as:
