Archive for Silver
Have you a collection of small Georgian silver? Has it been aquired recently and if so how do you know it is real? The Antiques Trade Gazette is telling the tale of the largest forger in recent times and also details some of the makers marks he was forging. I would be particularly concerned if you purchased your items on eBay (unles you bought them from me of course!) as it appears he used the on-line auction site as an outlet for these items.
Any pieces which you are concerned about should be reported to the Antique Plate Comittee - Phone 020 7606 8971
