YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN

A federal court in New York has finally determined that "Ebay does not have a legal responsibility to actively filter counterfeit items from their auction site". Tiffany & Company filed suit years ago based on their investigation that revealed that 72 percent of those items identified on Ebay as Tiffany & Company were fakes. This ruling is somewhat contradictory to legal findings in other countries but seems to be the case for the US. None of this has any bearing on Tiffany Studios items. Be careful out there.

THE NOT $500,000 DRAGONFLY LAMP

The lamp on the left was listed on Ebay with a great story about it being in a safe as the only provenance. The listing is accompanied with an appraisal and according to the seller, it is the same lamp as shown in the article. The appraisal reads like a Antique Roadshow appraisal and the appraiser uses comparables that are for 22 inch shades - the listed shade is 17 inches - and even then are cherry picked to accentuate the exception to reality, just like the Antique Roadshow. It appears that the millions of buyers on Ebay realistically priced the lamp and shade at less than $6000 which is $494,000 less that the appraisal. Size and color are very important when buying Tiffany lamps and this one gets poor marks in both categories. It pays to purchase Tiffany from knowledgeable and experienced people.

A frequent contributor to this site has just listed the fake and fraudulently signed lamp on the left.The base signature will not fool anyone and do not be seduced by this no reserve low starting price. Nobody seems to have been fooled by this fake as it sold for just $1009. Not bad for a lamp and a shade and the fake Tiffany marks come with it. This seller has graced our pages before.

The red non-Tiffany shades above left just sold for $95.00 for the pair at an auction house with only one bid and sold to someone at the auction. Is this the very same PhillipWeiss who can be seen on Antique Roadshow as an advisor? Maybe that could explain where all of those "to Mars" prices come from.

This seller has had frequent fakes on this site before but the latest is the best. The four fakes listed above have been offered before but only on an individual basis. Now this seller is cleaning house and all four of the items shown above are shown in one listing and all of them are fakes with fraudulent signatures. There was a buyer for $3750.00 and we are left to wonder why someone would pay that amount of money for four fakes and what does the new buyer intend to do with them. We will see them again.

The "vase" on the left has been cut down and the seller was not forthcoming about this modification. This is to advise you that Tiffany items that have been altered, modified or damaged will not be shown on the site. Their value is next to nothing in those conditions
