The true age of the Yuan dynasty flask

by Sten Sjostrand on 11/05/10

Refer to below blog for background:

After few more emails reminding the museum curator to share the dating result, I finally got an email saying that the museum messages had been quarantined, the reason for the delay in responding. In the meantime, the TL dating of the flask had come back and: quote it was indeed a fake and had been returned to the owner unquote.

After confirming the true age of the flask, the museum curator asks me to keep this information confidential. Whilst I will keep the museum and the curator’s name and location confidential I will not be part of keeping the facts of a museum piece away from those interested to know. We all do mistakes but when corrected, we should admit to it. This is part of our public responsibilities if we work with providing knowledge about our historical past.

Having been published as a 700 year old Yuan dynasty flask, the museum should now publish the TL dating result and the true date of the flask. My email question if a corrective article would be published remains unanswered until this date.
