Customer Question

I have found some antiquities that belonged to my mother who has died 13 yrs ago. They are small rock red rock like with faces on them. I believe they came from Mexican pyramids. I would like information on these and can send you pics if you want. My aunt lived in Mexico, she also has passed about 16 or 17 yrs ago. She used to come and visit my mom. I dont know anything else about these and would appreciate any information you can give me. Thank you

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please send me a photo of the pieces and any marks on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks or labels.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" or "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
