the finest jewelry fields. The beauty of the design and of the metals make them equally attractive.” Kensington sales brochure, 1935. Kensington’s combo of brushed-aluminum-and-brass would make it easy to identify, even if the company’s logo weren’t emblazoned on the base. Although period Alcoa promotions sometimes refer to the style as “Empire,” the most commonly used descriptor for Kensington is “classic modern”. Guild was heavily influenced by the “classic” Greek decorative usage of laurel leaves and symbolic imagery. He successfully married these images to the “modern” Art Deco fondness for uncluttered line. Freed from any embellishments that would tie them to a specific timeframe, Kensington pieces, as the ads promised, “go well with the primitive early American, as well as complimenting the sophisticated modern.” In a word, they’re

There were also occasional one-offs, such as a Kensington clothes brush, a Kensington “lipstick tissue holder,” and even the “Kenfold Money Minder,” essentially a metal billfold. While not readily categorized, each of these possesses the same stylistic traits as the mainstays of the Kensington line.

In some rural areas, especially where there was a traditional farm population, local cabinetmakers did continue to produce furniture, but they too felt the influences of outside styles. Hence the abundance of â€œcountry Empireâ€? furniture that we see, even today.

Last week, I spent some time outlining my thoughts on why miniature furniture made before the Civil War was produced, not as an apprentice piece or salesmanâ€™s sample, but as what its name implies, a miniature. This week, I want to look at furniture made after the Civil War and into the twentieth century. The question with these miniatures is not whether they are apprentice pieces, because most furniture was produced in factories by this period. Rather, letâ€™s look at the assumption that all miniatures were made as salesmanâ€™s samples. First, letâ€™s look at the nature of the furniture business in the post-Civil War era. In the East, the widespread reach of the canals, and later the railroads, meant that people had access not only to a wide range of goods but also to publications like Godeyâ€™s Ladyâ€™s Book, where they could see and read about the latest fashions. As a result,
many local cabinetmakers factoriesâ€? of Philadelphia, were forced to fall back upon and ultimately, the southern their â€œmeat and potatoesâ€? production item coffins. (Thus was born the modern funeral industry.) Still others became retailers of furnishings produced in other parts of the country.

“Don’t Worry, It Happens To Every Collector...” The single most oftenused phrase I hear from every expert in every field of collecting is: “It happens to every collector.” We all have at least one fake in our collections and we may not even know it. No matter how experienced we are in our chosen field of collecting, every collector gets seduced by a fake now and then. It’s part of the learning process when we’re novice collectors, and it’s just a fact of the collecting life once we’re seasoned collectors. Sometimes knowledgeable collectors purchase a fake on purpose, either to publicize it and use it as an example to warn other collectors, or because they want to study it more closely. But there are times in every collector’s life when they get fooled by a particularly well done fake. The likelihood of this happening is becoming higher now that fakers and forgers have gone high-tech and are perfecting their evil craft. But
don’t feel bad if it’s happened to you - even the most highly respected authenticators have mistaken fakes for the real things. So let’s ease into 2012 with a few of the most interesting accounts of fakes that made their way through expert inspections and into some of the most famous col-
lections in the world. One of the more current cases was exposed in April of 2011, when the Daily Mail reported that Bolton Council museum spent 440,000 British pounds (roughly $703,657 as of this writing) on a twenty-inch carved stat-
ue of Egyptian Princess Amarna, the granddaughter of King Tut. The statue was authenticated as 3,300 years old by not one, but two highlevel experts: the British Museum and Christie’s Egyptology Department. Turns out that the faked statue was actually made in only three weeks by “master forger” Shaun Greenhalgh, who has been churning out well-crafted fakes in his garden shed for 17 years. Greenhalgh’s faked works of art range from paintings to sculptures; his elderly parents had been helping him sell the fakes, yielding them a tidy income of over 850,000 British pounds (approximately $1,359,212 US). Once discovered, the statue became part of a “Fakes and Forgeries” exhibit in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. Does the name “Mark Hofmann” sound familiar? If you were a Sotheby’s customer in the 1980s, it probably would. A name now prac-
tically synonymous with forgery, Hofmann’s crimes may make him one of the most notorious forgers in the history of fakery. His escapades read like a novel: besides creating numerous well-forged documents that he sold to everyone from the Mormon Church to manuscript dealers, he tried to cover up his crimes with murder - twice successfully, and a third time unsuccessfully, when a pipe bomb he’d planted went off prematurely. One of his most famous forgeries was a supposedly rare letter allegedly written by Daniel Boone that was sold in 1985 by Sotheby’s for $31,900; the letter had been consigned to Sotheby’s not by Hofmann himself, but by his cousin. Although his forgery passed inspection by a manuscript expert, it took a “forensic document examiner” to discover that the letter was a Hofmann fake. Of course, Sotheby’s refunded the buyer’s money, but the incident caused the future sale of a poem purportedly handwritten by Emily Dickinson to be returned to Sotheby’s
once the buyer discovered it had passed through Hofmann’s hands. Just the fact that his name was associated with the document was enough to cast serious suspicion on it. More recently, in November 2011, the presti-
gious Courtauld Institute of Art in London discovered that one of the paintings in its highly-respected collection was actually a fake. As reported by The Telegraph, it was believed that the painting titled The Procuress “was a 17th-century anonymous copy of a 1620s brothel scene by Dutch master Dirck van
Baburen”. For decades the painting had been examined by experts, some expressing doubts while others accepted the painting as authentic. It wasn’t until recently, when the BBC One program “Fake or Fortune?” had the piece tested again that Bakelite was discovered mixed into the paint, a signature, if you will, of fake paintings created by Dutch forger Hans Van Meergeren. Although Van Meergeren was known for forging the works of Old Masters, he also acquired authentic pieces (as did Hofmann), which kept experts from automatically discounting works in his possession as fakes. Finally, there’s the case of the famous crystal skull. When a package from an anonymous source showed up at the Smithsonian Institute in 1992 claiming the crystal skull inside was a preColumbian treasure, experts viewed it with skepticism and had high-tech tests performed on the skull to determine its actual age. Just as suspected, the evidence showed that the (Continued on page 12)

COLLECTOR CHATS (Continued from page 3)
Generally, patrons had several choices in purchasing furniture. If they patronized a local furniture store (often doubling as a funeral parlor) there was a limited selection of items available in stock. More often than not, people ordered furniture and had it delivered. The commission arrived via train, wagon or canal boat. It should also be noted that in some rural locations, where a single furniture shop could not make it financially, the local general merchant would handle furniture orders. What does not seen to play into all of this is the role of a traveling salesman. Perhaps in very rural areas there were such folks, but I have found little evidence of them elsewhere. People came to a store to purchase their goods and either took them home or waited for them to be delivered. Traveling salesmen or itinerant cabinetmakers producing miniatures to show their wares - I think it’s the stuff of legend, but not based in fact. So, the question is then

posed as to what was the purpose of all those scale miniatures of furniture made in the Victorian era. I would argue that they had three purposes. First was perhaps as store window advertising. One certainly sees this in pottery, where giant and miniature examples of regular wares
were produced simply to dress up store windows. Second, I think many of them were made as giveaways true novelties meant to be given away to folks to promote the sales of furniture. Finally, like in the pre-Civil War era, I think the majority of miniatures were made and
sold as jewelry and trinket chests. Just like today, people wanted a place to store their valuables, and miniature furniture was a neat thing to use. Regardless of their purpose, miniature furniture is a wonderful thing to collect, and a great part of decorative arts history.

FOOLED BY FAKES (Continued from page 6)
skull was not made with hand tools, as would be the case with a pre-Columbian piece, but rather with a rotary cutting wheel and hard abrasives. Moreover, the quartz itself contained a tiny deposit of a synthetic abrasive that identified the type of wheel used to make the piece - that wheel, made of a bonded material, wasn’t in use until the mid-twentieth century. It was determined that the skull was made in the 1960s. When the skull was originally received by the Smithsonian, it prompted a study of archival documents related to other crystal skull acquisitions. Interestingly, a crystal skull acquired by the British Museum in the late 19th century along with the sale of several other crystal skulls had all come from antiquities dealer Eugene Boban. Clearly, an analysis of the crystal skull in the British Museum was in order, although records showed that it that had been “acquired in 1897 from Tiffany and Co., New York, through Mr.
George Frederick Kunz” (www.britishmuseum.org). However, Boban was mentioned in documentation of the skull’s line of ownership: According to the British Museum’s website, one of Kunz’s publications documented the chain of ownership as having been bought by an English collector from a Spanish officer who brought the skull with him from Mexico before the French occupation; it was then acquired by French antiquities dealer Eugene Boban; at some later time, it was purchased by Tiffany and Co. Top experts from the British Museum, the Smithsonian, and the Department of Earth Sciences and Geography at Kingston University in Surrey, England, collaborated in the examination of the skull. The skull was compared to that of an authentic, documented pre-Columbian rock crystal goblet. Once again, evidence showed that this skull had also been worked with a rotary cutting wheel and hard abrasives, but there was one

thing more: Raman spectroscopy discovered particular chlorite inclusions that are not found in Mexican quartz, but rather in quartz from Brazil, which was first exported to Germany in the 1930s, and also in quartz from Madagascar, which was imported by France in the late 18th century. However, quartz crystals of the size required to craft the skull weren’t obtainable until the end of the 19th century, a perfect fit with the skull’s acquisition in 1897. The moral of these and so many other similar stories? Don’t think it can’t happen to you, and don’t fret if it does you’re in good company. Make sure you purchase expensive collectibles from reputable sources that will refund your money if the piece proves to be fake, and use any such erroneous purchases as a new lesson in collecting. Then make sure to share your new-found knowledge with other collectors so they don’t make the same mistake too. All images via Wikipedia.

Many collectors, both as buyers and sellers, expect to see a very strong 2012. We’ve already had a tremendous level of interest in our auction for May, 2012.
