About this title


For years, collectors have relied on marks as a way to authenticate and date genuine antiques and collectibles. But with the flood of fakes and reproductions, determining which piece is genuine and which is not can mean the difference between a rare find and a costly mistake. This new book, organized by category and then by manufacturer, shows more than 1,000 faked, forged, and confusing marks side-by-side with the original marks so readers can easily distinguish forgeries from original, valuable items. It covers pieces from some of the most frequently reproduced manufacturers -- including Fenton, Lalique, and Staffordshire. Categories include china, porcelain, art glass, cut glass, pattern glass, pottery, silver, toys, furniture, and jewelry. -- More than 1,000 crisp photos for clear and easy identification -- Invaluable information from America's top expert on antique fakes and reproductions -- Side-by-side comparisons of authentic and typical forged marks
