Chinese copies of 19thC Staffordshire figures

Post by NaomiM on April 6th 2017, 12:37 am

Something to beware of, although I've come across a lot in Antiques barns and they're very similar to each other so easy to spot once you've see a few. And the stained crackle glaze is a dead giveaway

Fake Ruskin pottery has started to pop up on ebay also. It is so easy to spot with smudged stamps over the glaze and unusual shapes. These things often don't even look like Ruskin items but somehow they are still getting bids. Most to be fair never reach the end and are taken down but I am seeing them regularly so we may be about to be hit by a boat load.

There is someone currently selling a 'distressed' 17thC Delft charger who has been informed that it's a fake but has simply added question marks to the listing and dropped the starting price to a nominal amount. last time I looked it had 12 bids and was climbing rapidly. Always a good idea to join various Facebook groups of fellow collectors where such sellers are named and shamed.

I have tried telling people about the fakes they are selling but that nearly always has no impact whatsoever. As you said they add a question mark to the title, add the word style to the description or simply ignore you. It makes me think that many are knowingly selling fakes regularly. I try and avoid those sellers.
