Front Cover
Krause Publications, 2003 - Antiques & Collectibles - 368 pages
It's gorgeous, and the price is right, but is it an original or a fabulous fake? With so many antique fakes and reproductions flooding the market, it really can be hard to tell. Mark Chervenka, America's top expert in the field, comes to the rescue with this updated edition of his best-selling guide. Featuring nearly 1,000 close-up photos of fakes and originals shown side-by-side, it's easy for collectors to determine what's new, fake, forged, or reproduced. New chapters include Bakelite fakes, new castiron lawn furniture and garden ornaments, and reproductions of holiday collectibles. This book is the standard reference on new Depression glass, art glass, pottery, toys, advertising, lighting, cut glass, bronzes and more.
