Agreed. The guy who was a “Native American Expert” is a jack ass. I knew what I had, I have an Ma in Anthropology and had worked in the area doing contract archaeology, I brought a friend’s piece to have appraised. I knew it was a fake and he did nothing but belittle me - he also didn’t remember the time I was in his SHOWROOM and upon finding out I was active in archaeology telling me he could help me make “good money” for the right items… Forget about archaeological ethics much? The gentleman who appraised my pottery was lovely, and my baby bowl, though not expensive was a rare design made by the company and he had only seen one in a book before. In short, instead of a potential let down he left me with kind words about my item. The art of working with the public seems to be a loss to some of the others.
