Is This Basket a Fake?
As I track auctions and sales for opportunities to collect interesting baskets I have come across examples of high and low quality reproductions as well as known fakes, frauds, forgeries, rip offs, misrepresentations, deceptive marketing and common cases of mistaken identity in the field of basketry. Study the pages in this section if you want to be armed against being taken advantage of by individuals who are knowingly misrepresenting baskets as something they are not as well as those who are ignorant of the origins of the item they are offering for sale. As a basket collector you are advised to live by the rule....Caveat emptor - "Let The Buyer Beware"
