Hi Kevin

I have checked, and the fake item was catalogued as "Paul Ysart style paperweight" with an Estimate of £100 to £120.   A genuine Paul Ysart was catalogued as "Ysart Flower Bud paperweight" with an Estimate of £220 to £280.   Sounds fair enough to me.  And the fake went for a little more than I thought: some £450 plus commission.  The real one sold for £360 plus commission.  So feel free to be staggered!  Regards, Alan.

Obviously no point anyone making waits in their own name anymore! Much better to make a fake of something. Of course the rarest fake weights are the VY signed ones (Vincent Ysart) I suppose they will fetch over a thousand now. (http://www.debook.com/gifs/Mailflush.gif)

Don't forget that people often don't believe the auction catalogues.  They may have not realised that there are fakes out there, and just thought that the auction house didn't know what it had - this is more common than auction houses knowing after all.

If the vendor doesn;t know what they have got, then unless it is a specialist auction, the likelihood is that it will be mis-catalogued.

So perhaps they thought it right, and bid accordingly.

And didn't like the real one as much!

The fakes are unmistakeable and very well documented the auction house just prefers not to use the word fake in a listing.

Hi Frank.

By "rarest fake weights are the VY signed ones (Vincent Ysart)" do you mean a signature cane inclusion? Any pictures of one?

Fortunately in this case it was a joke Andrew. So no pictures are available, perhaps the joke should be removed before it gives someone the idea.
