Superb, slightly polished specimen with fine ribs, beautiful suture lines and pinkish color. This is an uncommon species that is rare in this size (very heavy !). Both sides are equally beautiful. Minor cracks were filled prior to polishing.

    The item was well illustrated in the description. Why do you say that the lot is below your expectations ? You did not try to communicate with me.

    The buyer complained about a small crack. I did not notice such a crack prior to shipping. The expert did not notice it either. The buyer preferred to keep the item so I offered a 15€ discount to repair the crack. The buyer refused the 15€ offer and asked for a 50€ refund.

  • 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.
