The purpose of this section is to show the pieces where it is agreed they are fakes. Agreed perhaps by not everyone – owners after all have hopes – but agreed by enough to be thought of as worth entering here.
Quite a number of others, which to this researcher were made to deceive are not shown here as there is insufficient support for that opinion and are not shown.
The Society of Pewter Collectors was hugely worried in the 1920s and 30s as to the deceptive practices taking place to extract money from rich collectors. So that was the age of discovery – where pieces never known of before, never exhibited, never before mentioned, suddenly appeared as if by magic.
