IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT 'FAKE' ANTIQUITIES AND ANTIQUES
Unfortunately, many items represented as authentic Antiquities are not genuinely ancient objects at all. Instead they are later reproductions, mostly of very recent manufacture, though a few reproductions of ancient objects are much older. Regardless of age if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely ancient then it becomes a 'fake' antiquity.
Likewise, if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely antique then it becomes a 'fake' antique.
It is always wise to deal with experienced and knowledgeable dealers who are members of the governing international and national antique and art dealers associations.
