CAVEAT EMPTOR: The prospective buyer is advised to acquire New World antiquities ONLY from recognized Pre-Columbian Art specialists and pay a legitimate price for authentic antiquities with legal provenance and bonafide guarantees of authenticity. Keep in mind that a “Certificate of Authenticity” is only as valid as the issuer’s credentials and expertise. Unrealistically low prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately not bargains at all.
