It seems to be in too good condition to truly be 17th C.  Heck, I have early 20th C stuff that doesn't look that good.

It would be interesting to see what it finally sells for...unless the reserve isn't met.  Very nice stuff.

It appears to be in perfect shape, which would certainly make *me* suspicious even if it didn't have an absurdly low starting price. (I do rather wish people didn't do the "ha ha you have to guess how much I really am asking for this" reserve price thing, though I can understand why they might.)
