YOU ARE HERE:>>REAL or Fake>>Fakes ancient glass: varieties.


Someone expressed surprise that fakers make total  fantasy pieces as much as they make false pieces closely based on known forms. They do, and it's odd that they do. They do however manage to sell these atrocities as most new collectors simply don't know what genuine ancient glass looks like.

Which is surprising as there are so many fine books on ancient glass and all museums have collections.

Here are some I have seen online over the last couple of years which bear very little resemblance to any genuine pieces. Some are really amazing fantasies!

There are lots of examples of rather inmprobable fakes in core formed glass and mosaic glass in the other sections here so I will not show too many of these here.
