It's a bit difficult when you live in the world of Damien Hirst, as he doesn't make these things himself so even the ones his organisation say are legit could be seen as fakes.

Strange thing is Dan, someone (a crook) must have taken time and trouble to make
that stamp, but was just too thick to get it right.

yeah they have been popping up for the last 15 years, the faker was not a pottery expert as he used easily recognisable makes such as Bertoncello

'Poole plant pot' currently on ebay which looked a bit unusual and a closer look showed a fake backstamp, an item I haven't seen before. I've told the seller its fake, if its isn't removed then will indicate that they know its fake and/or the don't care.

I suppose its because only the cheap stuff has a plain bottom, but it is a rather pointless thing to do.

Stamford auctions had a 'Poole studio' vase on their latest catalogue - lot 167 - with a fake backstamp. I pointed this out to them and the listing now states 'Poole style' vase. Why didn't they just remove it from the auction instead of allowing fakes to continue to circulate. Maybe if more people complain about it they will remove it completely.

Disgraceful Nuh-huh

This carved wooden figurine was sold at a local auction house as a Willi Soukop for 1000, even though I told them it was Balinese like mine below it.
