Title: Chinese/Russian Crap Infiltration
Post by: Haarmann on December 10, 2021, 01:56:05 PM
I guess it was inevitable that these poorly copied Goetz pieces would begin to show up in ill-informed or 'make a euro at any price' auction houses.  This auction house was informed well before auction time that this was obviously not an authentic goetz yet they went ahead and took 85 euro from some novice collector anyway.  This crap sells on Ebay for cheap.

So it begins.

I saw that and also emailed saying it was a bad reproduction. Makes me wonder the ethics of the auction house.
