I have just resently aquired a Roman glass vase 200-300 AD. It is golden yellow, Iridescent and is certified authentic. No cracks, chips or repairs. It is different colors under different lighting conditions. I will post a couple of pictures to show it off a little. ROBBYBOBBY64.

It’s pretty cool. Did you find it or buy it. If you bought it I bet it wasn’t cheap
I wish the Roman empire stretched to New Jersey. It was mostly Europe buddy. I won it in an online auction. It was not cheap but i did get a great deal for its size.

22 bids on the vase. It was a hot item because of the certificate of authenticity that came with the vase.

So who authenticates these and is there a guarantee?

is the authenticity what’s guaranteed or is the method of acquisition also guaranteed?

antiquities from the middle eastern region particularly and extending north and east into the old Roman Empire regions have lots of issues as I’m sure you’re more aware of than I am.

I love the pieces you posted - especially the green one but would love to hear more about the market, guarantees etc.

Most certificates of authenticities are only their professional judgement based on thier schooling, experience and in the end their professional opinion. They certify hundreds if not thousands of artifacts every year. That guarantees the articles are genuine. They obtain them from a reputable source. That guarantees that the method in finding the item was ethical and legal,which is most important.

Thanks. Keep sharing if you have more - the idea that people before me have held or used an item is what has always fed the flame, whether artifacts, coins, bottles etc.

Most importantly Deal with reputable Dealers! Mine will take back any item for any reason. Chose a well known Reputable company to authenticate. If a certificate of authenticity is incorrect and the item is not as descibed , even the best authenticaters can and will only refund the cost of the certificate. (means you can't get 1 million dollars for them being wrong)So make sure the dealer is reputableas well as the company that does the authentification. Look at reviews. I will only deal with people who are 5 star all the way, in everyway.
