Original Message:   Contemporary reproductions, pros and cons:
I find that the Javanese bead makers and Balinese salesmen (for the most part) are honestly representing these beads as contemporary reproductions. And they are selling them at an honest price.

The word "fake" should be applied only when they are being misrepresented and offered at a prices which suggest that they are ancient.

From another perspective, the Javanese are providing the bead world with an opportunity to collect contemporary pieces for comparison. -And to cultivate connoisseurship among collectors.
