Carbon Dating; It cannot be used on materials less than 50 years old but  is reliable up to 40,000 years. The slight drawback is, that to do the test, you need to destroy part of the object -about the size of a postage stamp to be precise.

Cezanne, Paul (1839-1906);He was a post impressionist French painter who made a bridge between impressionist painting and cubism.(I like his “Card Players “which now resided in Qatar). It was once stolen and commemorated on a French Postage stamp.
