Seller: worleyenterprisesinternationalllc (4,908) 100%, Location: Auburn, Alabama, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 273535842466 For sale is this beautiful white stone intaglio. This piece resembles ancient Bactrian pieces that I have seen, but also looks like Roman or Greek! I’m not sure of the exact place of origin. It is carved of a white stone. It is opaque. The back is flat. It was probably once in a ring or pendant, but has lost its metal back. Some small chips and scratches may be visible on the surface. There is no major damage that I see. The image carved in it is that of a person, presumably a king or emperor. This piece was probably once worn as a pendant or ring that would have been used to seal documents. It would have likely been used to seal wax, lead, or clay. This particular piece seems to be a little “too good to be true” though. It looks to have been carved with modern tools, which would not have been around in the days of ancient peoples. The stone is inconsistent with some other pieces that I have seen. Typical intaglios like this were made out of carnelian, agate, jade, lapis lazuli, or some other nice stone. I find it unlikely that an ancient people group would make an intaglio out of a stone like this. The condition is better than what might be expected. I also didn’t pay the typical price that authentic pieces tend to fetch at auction! These things, and maybe even others, lead me to see that this is a replica piece. It may still be old (or have some age to it), but it is easy to see that it was made in modern times to look older than it is. Because I believe this is a replica piece I will officially sell it as that. It was likely made for the tourist trade or as a museum quality replica! Still a very nice item! Don’t pass it up! Be sure to check over the details and look at all of the photos so you will know exactly what you’ll get! Sometimes the photos include a picture of the item next to a ruler so that you can better tell the size of the item. This way we can avoid any accidental sizing issues. My goal is to make you happy!
