  • I bought this old aged dogon couple as said with provenance antiquarian in Mali 50-70 s.The style is 18th or older. Now I went to a Brussels Dogon expert who found it a copy or a fraud piece.

    Response by seller
    J'ai indiqué dans l'annonce l'âge de l'objet (1950–1970). La mention "old" dans le titre n'était pas très adaptée car 50 ans ce n'est pas vraiment vieux... Il est erroné de parler de faux ou de copie. Cet objet ne copie pas un style plus ancien (Je n'ai trouvé aucun objet ressemblant dans les monographies d'objets Dogon anciens). C'est donc bien un style plus récent.

    Les pièces Dogon anciennes se vendent très cher. Il est évident qu'à 175€ il ne s'agit pas d'une pièce ancienne de musée. Il y avait suffisamment de photos dans l'annonce et un prix assez bas pour être certain que l'objet n'est pas daté du 18è siècle. Il est donc inexact de parler de copie/fraude.

    Vous avez enchéri sur cet objet car il vous a plu. Vous parlez d'un doute lorsque vous avez reçu l'objet, alors que vous n'avez pas eu de doute en enchérissant sur cet objet à 175€. Cette vente est tout à fait honnête.
