  1. Hello everybody, Ending up with a restoration period, I did restore today a very rare Tutu Egyptian amulet (see attachment). I bought it for nuts (€50 including S&H by direct offer to the seller Arqueo Mundis, i.e. Galeria Felix Cervera, Carrer Consell de Cent, 286, 08007 Barcelona, Spain). ll the very best, Didier Tutu_amulet.docx
  2. You can add mine to this collection! All the best, Didier
  3. I did refine the restoration of my glass inlay. Below is the very final result. For this kind of intervention you must be very patient and meticulous. All the best, Didier
  4. Thank you for your detailed reply, I did appreciate, and fully trust you! Best regards, Didier
  5. Hello everybody, This one was also bought in Turkey in the 70s by my life partner, Josiane. She thought she'd thrown it away, believing it to be a fake, but she found it again. I gently cleaned the bronze. It seems to me to be a Hadrianus coin. The diameter is 4 cm, the weight 20 g. Any reply would be appreciated. Yours sincerely Didier
  6. Again, Many thanks, I really appreciated All the best, Didier
  7. Many thanks for your detailed reply, I really appreciated. All the best, Didier
  8. Hello, I also have two Byzantine coins with no idea of what they are. I am attaching two docx documents so that after opening them you can stretch the images. Any comment will be wellcome. All the best, Didier Byzantine_coin1.docx Byzantine_coin2.docx
  9. Yes it could be, but unfortunately I did not find any close parallel, and this is not a pendant...
  10. Hello everybody, I have 2 Roman coins. Any comment will be appreciated. I am attaching the 2 docx documents so that you can stretch the images provided. All the best, Didier Roman_Aurelianus_coin.docx Roman_coin.docx
  11. I did repair correctly the inlay, see attachment. This was not a piece of cake, especially reattaching the rolling nose. All the best, Didier
  12. I suspect the inlay has amuletic purpose, but this is only a speculation. Best, Didier
  13. I agree with your opinion. I told Hussam that it was a Seth amulet, but he did not change his erroneous description in his COA (attached below). However, I strongly believe Hussam to be a much more trustable seller than both Christie's and Bonhams. They are unfortunately selling (very few, I admit) fakes but at rocket prices to unexperienced buyers 😠 🥵 Have a nice day, Didier
  14. Yes, thanks for your comment! Although I collect mainly Egyptian artefacts, I have in my collection a superb Phoenician or Carthaginian glass pendant, see below. This a quadrichrome one, the mouth is red. H 2.9 cm All the best, Didier
  15. Hello everybody, I bought last week on Catawiki (which I hate because of their numerous fakes sold weekly) a stunning inlay. It was hopefully for sale by Chris Martin in London, who I fully trust. This is a tiny artefact L 1.6, H 0.7, T 0.4 cm Although badly repaired (I will try to fix that) this inlay is interesting for at least 3 reasons: 1. It is not flat, as usually. The red nose is indeed in relief, 2. The upper face is convex as you can see on the upper image, 3. The lower face is made of another layer of totally transluscent glass, see lower image. I am not sure at all it is Romano-Egyptian. Thus, I did send my pictures to the Corning glass Museum. I hope they may identify the origin of the inlay and on the technique used to make it. All the best, Didier
