How old are they? Look pretty authentic, don't they? Faking antiquities to sell to tourists - and archaeologists! - was a very lively business in Victorian Egypt. Some forgers became quite famous for the quality of their work, and more than one piece in famous museums has since been proven to be a fake. These pieces are left over from the Victorian era, and are works of art compared to most of what is offered for sale today. Since they are not real antiquities, they are legal to purchase. Hassan gave me the Eye of Horus pendant as a birthday present in 2014; I made a necklace out of it to wear on the latest trip, and some of his family thought I was wearing an actual antiquity.
