eh, I did say tends.. As far as I am concerned there are no hard and fast rules about anything.
as far as Baldwins book though , I am unsure of how far to trust it. I am also unsure of how far to trust the Moser factory. I know of at least one Loetz piece he attributes to Moser in that book.
Moser and Harrach are easy to confuse and there are fake Moser marks out there.
the company claims all moser is marked. end of story.
I had a piece that I would have SWORN was Moser because of Baldwins book. The decoration is very very similar. When I sent pics of this piece to the Moser factory they said no way, 1. it's not marked 2. it doesn't look like anything we ever did.
on the other hand. I have at least one unmarked moser piece that is unquestionably Moser... so that statement was false.
I am not really going anywhere with this other than to state a new found distrust of everything Moser at this point in my education
I don't know how much of either to believe.
Comments, are of course, welcome.
