The dog on the right has been profiled on this site from early on. It is not a copy of anything Tiffany made but just a fake with a fake signature and Bob has it for sale for $350 while others have sold for around $15.00. Cannot wait to see what other fine antiques Bob has to offer.

THE STUDIOS OF RIVIERE, APOLLO, TIFFANY AND ZENTRUM

Riviere, Apollo and Tiffany operated in the approximate same time frame and Riviere and Apollo copied the works of Tiffany especially in the Etched Metal and Glass desk set pieces. Tiffany seemed to have the upper hand when it came to signing his creations but Riviere and Apollo made pieces very similar to pieces of Grapevine and Pine Needle. Caution is advised as many of their works are being passed off as Tiffany Studios as seen with the letter opener offered below right. Zentrum Studios is a new entry into this copying but they offer some unique pieces not made by any of the others. Their offers to sell are clear that they are not Tiffany but the secondary market might be different, so be careful. You will be amazed when you see their grapevine clock with a quartz movement and the price will take your breath away. They sell on Ebay under the name of zentrumstudios.

BANKRUPTCY IN NEW YORK
T W Conroy & Associates, one of the names shown on our site as a multiple seller of fake Tiffany has filed for bankruptcy in New York and he was arrested which should tell you that more than a shortage of funds is involved. Hopefully you did not buy or consign anything to his auction.

NOT A CLUE
This seller is offering the Indian on the left with a starting bid of $200 and an estimate of $400- $700. It has a fake and fraudulent signature which replaced the Made in Taiwan label. These sell from wholesalers for less than $12.00 each with 4 to choose from.

BEWARE OF YOUR EXPERTS
The whatyoumaycallit shown on the left was placed for sale on the internet by Daryle Lambert of Northfield, Illinois who claims 45 years in the antique business and also claims to be the author of a book titled How To Make Money Buying and Selling Antiques - 31 Steps to Your Millions in Antiques and Collectibles, $16.95. He has identified the piece on the left as Tiffany Studios since it is signed as such although it has the number that Tiffany assigned to a Heraldic photo frame. Hard to argue with that reasoning and he has been approved for membership in the "If It Is Signed Tiffany, It Must Be Tiffany Club" and since he is an author of a book on antiques and involved in antiques for 45 years, he is elected president. When told LCT did not do nudes, he said "it is not LCT, it is Tiffany Studios". It has been removed from the internet but if you have a spare $5,000, one of the 31 steps can be behind you
. We are not joking.

For all you members of the "If It Is Signed Tiffany, It Must Be Tiffany Club", here is a perfect example of one of the most used fake and fraudulent signatures. This fake signature is most commonly used by importers and is easily recognized. Question all signatures and demand a guarantee in the listing that it is a genune piece of Tiffany.

LETTER OPENERS
On the left and on the right are two fake and fraudulently signed Tiffany letter openers. The one on the left has a very common example of a fake Tiffany Studios signature while the one on the right has a fake Tiffany & Company signature but it is listed as Tiffany Studios regardless of the signature.

THE COBRA STRIKES YET AGAIN
This fake and fraudulently signed Tiffany candlestick was offered for sale on Ebay approximately a year ago by a ISOLDIT store in the Philadelphia area but the buyer had it verified and it was judged to be a reproduction. It was returned and the buyer was made whole again. Now it is back again and also from Philadelphia most likely from the person who originally consigned it to the ISOLDIT store. If at first you do not succeed, sell the fake again. See anything strange with the signature?
Remember to be very careful when buying from these Ebay stores as the majority are just sellers of merchandise and are happy to believe the consignor. You will be lucky to get your money back if you buy a fake from one of these stores since the consignor is usually gone when it is returned. Tough luck says the seller.

On the left and right
are two pieces by a
seller who is totally
ignorant of what is and
what is not Tiffany. When it gets this far askew, you need to questions the motives
of this seller.

FINALLY
On the left is finally a reasonable offer for 25 fake and fraudulently signed belt buckles offered with no reserve. The asking price is $49.99 for all of them. Seems fair to us.

 

THE BEST OF THE WORST - CHAPTER III
Seller R1CK1E has been profiled many times before and is now back again with more fake and fraudulently signed Tiffany perfume bottles. At least they are being offered with a lower starting price. This is a seller who has 22 negatives and 33 neutrals in the past 12 months and from reading some of them, this seller does not just offer fake Tiffany. A true professional in the field of selling fakes. The three shown below were just listed. These can be purchased anywhere but it takes a real thief to put a fake and fraudulent signature on them.

The boat from Taiwan must have come in as we are seeing a bunch of fake and fraudulently signed perfume bottles. Nice but not Tiffany. Wonder where they find the slimeball to sign these?

READ THE LISTING CAREFULLY
You are constantly reminded to read the listing carefully and to make sure the offered item is guaranteed to be genuine Tiffany Studios. Remember that if it is signed, that does not mean that it is genuine Tiffany Studios or that the statement is a guarantee. Seller DOWJ15K has a lamp offered on Ebay now and their guarantee is as follows:
UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC WITH FULL MONEY BACK, INCLUDING SHIPPING X'2, RETURN PRIVILEGES IF NOT AUTHENTIC!

That is a real guarantee
