I started a thread about my 'fake italian' Polaris and I came to the conclusion was that they are licensed rather than fake.

About stoppers: my stopper is glass not plastic. I don't know if this adds anything new to the debate?

When I said plastic ferrules I meant the part that goes in the neck.
All Riihimaen stoppers I've seen are cork.

OK. I''ve just asked Ivo in another thread if he is talking about the bit that goes on the stopper rather than the actual stopper.

But those are add on bits can be replaced.

Also it can become a headache as in the 2nd hand market false stoppers could be added.

To be licensed they would have to be identical and they're not. That is the point of a license. To be a fake there has to be intent to deceive, and we don't know about that. If your "whatever" is in neodymium or uranium glass, an Italian origin is unlikely. The use of neodymium and uranium in Italy seems to be restricted to handworked rather than mould-blown items.
