Dennis no reputable dealer would require anyone to substantiate the obvious. If they want to sell a toy ring from a box of Cracker Jack as Caesar's signet the burden of proof is not on the buyer.

Dear Gaius,
Thank you for the coments about the rings.
I would like to send some technical justifications to Mr. Davies for asking the refund, as he continues to afirm that the rings are authentic ancient items. Can you provide it?

Dennis I had a look at these nine pieces and can tell you categorically none of them are dateable to the Medieval Period:

1. AN ANCIENT BRONZE RING WITH A GEMSTONE INSERT FROM THE MEDIEVAL ERA: Probably vintage costume jewelry. ďGemstoneĒ is likely glass
2.  Same as above. Used to find this stuff at flea markets & garage sales when I was a kid
3. Costume jewelry Ė same as above
4. Ditto the above
5.  Same as above
6. Appears somewhat older than the other items. Possibly 19th century costume jewelry
7. A really mangled piece of antique junk
8. Late 19th or early 20th century costume jewelry
9. More antique or vintage junk

That antiques-and-artefacts-uk reacted so sharply when you requested a refund is likely attributable to angst over losing the profit. Can't believe for a second any knowledgeable or reputable dealer would mistake this stuff for medieval.

Just my two cents

I and here is his answer when I told him tha I discovered he was one of the biggest seller of fakes on eBay and that I wanted to send the rings back and receive the total refund:

"Unfortunately i cannot issue a refund for the rings until i have received them back as per eBay policy. I am quite disappointed with this, you should send the pictures over to a professional expert before making baseless allegations. I find it quite insulting. If these rings were not as described i would not be telling you to seek an expert opinion would i !"

By the way, is there any antiquities expert between the membros of this blog?

Dennis I am unaware of any dynamic (updated) listings that match your description. But the information on this site should help in distinguishing reputable from disreputable merchants - the number of the latter being legion. Suggest you check these databases for known crooks prior to purchasing. You could also post links to and/or photos of the artifact so others may evaluate before you buy.

Gaius

P.S. Your English is much better than my Spanish

Hello to all.
This is my first publication, and I want to start asking you to forgive my poor english. I Live in Brazil and studied english for many years, but I have not practiced writing for a while...
I created this topic because I began to buy allegedly ancient coins and rings on ebay for about one month, and I think that at least 50% of them are fakes...
I have seen many "Fake ancient artifacts sellers lists", but not even one "Real ancient artifacts sellers list". Is there a recent list of this kind?
Thanks for your attention,
Dennis

Hi,

There have been very few scientific analyses of such head pendants. There is a lot of information about the composition of the glass used to form core formed Phoenician vessels, bur whether such information is validly relevant to the composition of the glass used to make the head pendants is unsure.

Authentication therefore would be on stylistic grounds rather than scientific analyseis. The eminent authorities are to be found at the Corning Museum of Glass. If you could visit them? Or maybe contact by email?
