I'm not thinking of buying it. Is it fair to say that these are 'items of questionable authenticity'?

Interesting horseman, what's wrong with it?

The patina on the horseman is interesting. It does not yell out ot me fake as in recently artifically induced. It is crudely glued to the base, perhaps recently. I am also frightful of anything from Bulgaria, but I can't say horseman screams modern fake. Did they give the period for the pieces areich?

No.
They were on the auctions (new and unknown seller) and I wanted to get some opinions before reporting them.
They have been removed in the meantime though.
