All photos are via Wikipedia. At A Glance: Signs of a Fake: 1. Hallmarks with sharp or rough edges. 2. Faberge stamps that are “too perfect.. 3. Clumsy or bulky pieces. 4. Gold-plated or silver-plated parts. 5. Uneven or bumpy enameling. Reference books, websites, and collecting groups are the best ways to keep from being fooled by fakes. Here are a few: “Faberge Revealed: At The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts� by Geza von Habsburg; “Faberge� (www.faberge.com); “Faberge: Imperial Jeweler� by Geza von Habsburg and Marina Lopato.

Peter Carl Faberge’s firm). There are countless stories about dealers telling wondrous Faberge stories to buyers who are paying Faberge prices and who never look at their receipts until it’s too late. As many details of the

quarter-million pieces. They also made countless items ranging from picture frames to clocks and used a broad spectrum of materials, from wood to pewter to papiermâchÊ. But all of their pieces have two things in common: the craftsmanship is meticulous and their items are all one-of-a-kind. While genuine Faberge pieces may have more than one type of gemstone, metal, or color, they are all done with exquisite taste, balance and harmony. The designs, no matter how large or small the item, are all delicate and work well with the overall piece. This is one of the main differences between authentic Faberge and counterfeits: the counterfeits tend to be gaudier, may have too much going on, and tend to have a clumsy look about them, lacking the balance and proportionality of true Faberge. While hallmarks alone are not a determining factor, they should be taken into consideration. Any hallmark stamp with sharp or rough edges is a definite sign of a non-Faberge piece that has had its mark added after the fact. Most experts agree that buyers can’t judge the authenticity of the mark by how closely it resembles an authentic Faberge hallmark because more careful forgers are using lasers to trace authentic Faberge marks onto

their fake items. Another giveaway would be a piece containing a state hallmark from a particular date range next to the mark of a designer who predeceased the hallmark date. By the same token, you may find a designer’s initials along with the stamp of a workshop branch in which that designer never worked. Knowing these details or having a good reference source with that information can go a long way in identifying the work of a forger who hasn’t done his research. Getting to know the tones and hues of Faberge’s colors is also important in recognizing a fake. Because Faberge layered colors to give them unique tones, it is rare for a forger to duplicate those colors exactly. The enameling itself should be smooth and even, without any tiny bumps or uneven thickness. So many purportedly Faberge items are fake that in a 2011 New York Times article about the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ “Faberge Revealed� exhibit, curator Geza von Habsburg said that of every ten photos of supposed Faberge items sent to him, more than nine are forgeries. This includes examples from important collections that had passed as genuine examples for decades and were thought to be worth millions. When buying any item being represented as Faberge, be wary if the seller refuses to include the word “Faberge� in the description on your receipt, but make sure it doesn’t say “in the style of� or contain any other such qualifier (there are similar pieces made by Russian goldsmiths who were competitors of
