Re: Fakes? Link to pics at the bottom of the query.
Thanks for your message. I hadn't considered that cost to forge angle. I know I have seen some newish pieces, made in China, I think, marked with a mark I thought was meant to deceive - like "Victoria" or "Westminster" or something. I suppose that would be a big factory operation and maybe the stuff was sold through stores where it was not represented as antique... As a follow up, I gave the cup and saucer to the teacher. My son dropped the package as he was handing it over and broke the saucer! 120 years it stayed in one piece and one day with a nine year old and it was toast. The teacher sent a nice note... Thanks again.
