with rising prices and the relative ease in which these things can be copied i think a certain amount of provenance is essential, just because an item looks ok or similar to others it does not mean it's right.

ok thanks , like you i have seen a number of fakes in the past from 18th century pottery through to troika and whitefriars glass ,these fakes or reproductions only undermine the confidence of potential new buyers and the point i was trying to make was that items like maltbys constructions are fairly easy to fake and should be approached carefully .

sold for £555. An experienced collector on FB bought it and it had 25 bids so I think it's legit.

The gentleman in question must have a house like the Tardis, given how big his collection must be!
