Hi Will

To tell the truth I don't know that authentic jug-shaped beads in islamic era exist or not.

The difference bitween "suspicious" and "okay" is comming from just impression from pictures.

"okay" is not okay in fact. When I saw 3 (or 2) jug-shaped beads in 2nd picture(close-up one) I thought that inlayed "Murrine" or decolated lines on thier body look original and could not judge thier handles and heads and foots are "new works" from the picture.

As far I can only say Thier body looks "OKAY" and cann't deny they(in 2nd picture) are authentic from the picure. I'm not saying they(jug-shaped beads in 2nd picture) are authentic, I just cann't deny.

And speaking to 2 jug-shaped beads on the other side, thier styls look unnatural for me from the picture.

All of jug-shaped beads may be fake (using authentic islamic beads) or some of them are authentic, it's difficul to judge for me from thoses pictures.

So If I have a chance to see them in front of me, I may say all of jug-shaped beads are fakes or I may say all of them are authentic.

In the first place if authentic jug-shaped beads in islamic era doesn't exist we don't need to discuss,haha.

And speaking to the other round shaped beads I'm more positive than jug-shaped beads.

Anyway It's difficult for me to express what I'm thinking in Engsish exactly. I'm afraid that It may cause confusion here... Please correct my English if you find something wrong.
