YOU ARE HERE:>>REAL or FAKE>>Fake Babylonian plaques page 2.

 

Here is the one we saw on the last page.

 



.

Now look at these.

 




Another with the same mould flaw.




.

The one on the left is undoubtedly  same as the several fakes of this type sold on eBay for less than a $200 !

The example on the right with the slightly different leg positions might be genuine.




.

Another on offer on what appears to be a perfectly respectable website and no doubt the seller is convinced that it is genuine.

I've long ago given up telling sellers unless I know them well: one's opinion  is seldom received with any degree of pleasantness!

 

 

 

 





.

On this one, clearly from the same mould one cannot see the flaw/crack as it's covered by added  dirt.

 

.

This is a particularly unconvincing type.

 




.

The one on the right  below is very similar to this type of very unconvincng fake. But quite honesty I dont know if it is genuine or fake. Offered by a totally reputable and knowlegeable dealer so likely to be perfectly ok.

Perhaps the fake has been based on a genuine example of this type

 



.

Keep an eye open for more copies of this type of fake.

 

 



.

Do please send me imagesf of both  genuine examples and different type of fakes.

More varieties.

 
















We started this section in 2011 showing this  fake sold on eBay in 2010 as above.

 

Then someone drew my attention to this, below, on a well known auction house website. .
