of Tiffany for sale, do not offer any comments as you should have
all of the issues prior to listing a fake. The owner told me it was
real is not of
interest as an excuse.

The comment below
was sent it by a seller who uses the Ebay name ENTOURAGE1 from
York and although it was removed when someone notified them that it
was not Tiffany and being the good Ebay seller that they are, he relisted
it as Quezel.
This seller has photos of his works on Page 9 and Page 15 but all
someone needs to do
is read his feedback to get a good idea who you would be dealing with.
are ridiculous. I know a hundred sellers who don't know the myriad
of patterns tiffany had. We get a piece are told it's Tiffany and
sell it as such. I should not
have to be a Tiffany pro and have every book to know."
the great site. It has been a nice 2 hours of reading.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you very
much for this invaluable service. I never would have been
able to spot the patterns of the sellers as you have. You are holding
responsible for what they put on Ebay. I applaud you for looking out
for the buyers
..many of whom need your expertise. I would have never thought
there were that many Tiffany fakes. Again, Thank you.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You and your
site are a blessing.
Its so wonderful that you take the time to do it.
WHAT A GREAT
WEBSITE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. BUYING A FAKE AND
GETTING STUCK WITH IT IS A SICK FEELING. WHAT YOU ARE DOING WILL
HOPEFULLY STOP SOME OF THAT. THANKS
Just wanted to let you know that
I have canceled my listing on the fake
Tiffany Studios floor lamp. Your website is a great service. Just
wish I knew
this lamp was fake before I listed it. Keep up the good work.
I wanted to thank you for all
the info you have passed on about fake Tiffany
and the people selling it. I have been in the antique business for
have bought & sold many Tiffany objects. Recently in Brimfield
a pair of Tiffany Studios Cobra Candlesticks,for $1500, I was extremely
about it. The patina was dark brown with red highlights!! signature,
just perfect. I showed them to a Tiffany dealer friend,who promptly
they were fake, I was in shock, not about the money, I knew I'd get
but the fact they were so good. I felt like an idiot. The message
here is there
are a lot of "bad Tiffany " floating around, one must be
very careful and
purchase from a reputable dealer.
Thank you very much for the information.
I looked them up
and retracted my bid.
Thanks for the e-mail.
I solved this problem, will return merchandise and receive
my money back. Thanks for the info. I wish more ebayers were like
Please keep on helping to solve this fraud cases at eBay.
So glad to find this site. I
have spent many hours trying to train myself to decipher
the authentic from the fake with regard to Tiffany lamps and am so
find your site. This will save me a lot of time. What a great service,
I thoroughly appreciate it!
I almost bid on this vase but
was hesitant after I read the seller's description.
Red flags were going up!! I went to your website & you confirmed
my suspicions!! Thanks.
Thanks for the information.
Your one of the reasons why eBay is such a successful marketplace.
I thought you might like to
know that BEFORE I even think about bidding
on any "Tiffany" item listed on e-bay, I check your web
site. Thanks to you,
I have also gotten pretty good at spotting 'suspicious' listings.
the great work. Thanks
I was recently informed that
my name was added to your list of dealers
of fake Tiffany. I had two items that I listed without realizing they
were not authentic,
and upon learning that they were, I cancelled the deal with the
high bidders. I did not, and have never, intentionally mislead anyone
with my auctions. Please remove my name.
Thank you so much for your
email. You just saved me $2500.00.
I know nothing about lamps and relied on the fact it was represented
as very old, 1900-1920. I really appreciate the ebay members like
While I do laud your web site,
you do, it seems, perform a service to people who
don't know left from right - I do think you should contact sellers
lifting pictures and using their name on their site from EBAY.
Reply: We are not a member of the Ebay community
and have no way to contact sellers
I think this is outrageous.
NEVER did I try to sell these 2 items under
false pretenses. I was not even sure, and mentioned it. How else
should I sell
these items on EBAY? I HAVE to mention the fact that Tiffany is
on them. I do not SAY that it is specifically TIFFANY? Give me a
Whoever you are, you are doing
a great service for the unwary. Thank you.
Luckily I am not one of those. Knowledge is still king. Regards
Thank you so much for the heads
up notice on this fake Tiffany light fixture!
It's people like you that are making a difference in this world of
scams and corruption.
We have cancelled our offer to purchase this item. Thanks again
for all your help, and taking the time to notify us. Greatly appreciate
And you know this because?
Why not tell the seller? Why tell me?
Maybe the seller isn't aware the fixture could be a fake.
I was alerted
to your site by a fellow eBayer after posting the winning bid
of over $165 for a fake Tiffany bronze. Luckily I was able to recover
Paypal payment with a minimal number of threats, thanks to my being
able to use evidence from your website as proof. Of course, the
"didn't know it was a fake..."
Thanks for your
timely response...impressive. I appreciate your help and must
apologize as the mark is "Tiffany & Co." and not involved
with Tiffany Studios.
I should have been more specific in my initial email. Again, thanks
the help and for educating me.
Thank you for
the info on the fake Tiffany. Interestingly, CNN did a
story about the fakes on Ebay this morning. I appreciate your letting
Thank you for
advising me before paying for that item, what should I do now??
Should I contact the seller?? or contact Ebay?? Let me know

Ebay does not do something to stop this. Thanks again."

Thanks! I have
sent a complaint to ebay regarding mystic-rhino-inc for
selling fake items represented as vintage/unique. I have refused
to pay for
any of the auctions from them, and am waiting to retaliate bad feedback.
Guess that is the breaks! People like that give Ebay a bad name!
Hi; Thank you
for letting me know about the inkwell. I think the seller
should have to state that it is a reproduction. Also they should
be kicked off
Ebay for selling new as old. Thank you again for your information...
Thank you for
the website. Fortunately, I was out bid, twice. I must do
something right. It is too bad that Ebay does not have a
means for posting information such as your's.
was notified of your web site after bidding on the above item.
Thankfully I was out bid; however, the seller has begun listing
as private bidders, except for my bid. Seems like something is afoul
and I wanted to bring it to your attention. I haven't purchased
"fakes" and with the information on your web site I won't.
Thanks for the
