Knossos - Cups

 

I would have been happy to buy one of these :-) - and was amazed that no one appeared to be selling reproductions of them - at least, no one in the museum, or in Chania. Again, dating from about 1700 BC, they look amazingly 'modern'.

Tom Wilson: Wonderful designs.
Your remarks make my comment, Tom. How nice they are.
Tom Wilson: Highly collectible I would have thought.

You are right - someone would do a great trade selling reproductions of these swish artefacts
Tom Wilson: Indeed they would.

This is a definite opportunity lost Tom. You'd thing there would be a ready marked for repros
Tom Wilson: I expected there to be repros galore - but couldn't find any.
I can definitely see people collecting reproductions of them, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Me too!

Unbelievable that they are so old Tom. I struggle to understand.
Tom Wilson: They suggest a degree of sophistication way beyond what we might think.

That is a great idea you have. Knossos mugs, sold all over the world. The mugs have the looks.
Tom Wilson: They certainly do!
They do look modern, they really caught Maureens eye.
Tom Wilson: They certainly caught mine, Brian!
Some great designs!
Somebody needs to get their act together. These would sell by the barrowload
I like them too .
