I thought I had snagged a set of six coasters, called Pipe Dreams by Fornasetti. Two bucks...SCORE! But...where is the signature? Some sort of stamp on the back? Are they...fakes!!!
I don't know. I know that this imagery is not something I really like (pipes, really?) and wonder why anyone would want to fake these.

Looking for thoughts and votes here.

    Thank you Doctor, hope you are doing well.

    I am good... Busy... Buying a condo. In the midst of all the fun things related to it.. Not. But once it's done, it will be great. It's in my absolute favorite neighborhood in town. We are thinking about downsizing, so probably move in it next year.

    Wow, condo! What will you do with all your treasures?
  5. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago

    Fool you with a fake? Not sure what you mean.

    I've been staying deliberately out of this Amber because I just don't know.
    No marks?
    Looked on the net and found lots available like them all at Fornasetti prices.
    Have not found out anything in Italian either.
    Lots of attributions.
    Bucciarelli.
    Fornasetti for Bucciarelli etc..
    Caveat Emptor!

    V...Just because you don't know all the answers doesn't mean you shouldn't participate in class. :)) I have been wondering why you haven't commented.
    Rapidly thinking...fake

    dam spell check !! not real
  24. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    Yes I know, just wanted to see what the team had to say.
  25. SEAN68 SEAN68, 1 year ago
    meaning they don't know that they are fakes. these are not real , I have been reading and collecting fornasetti now for almost 3 years . I know what is and what isn't!!
  26. SEAN68 SEAN68, 1 year ago
    and I will be letting those people know on ebay !! and that will be the second time now on ebay someone has done that and the last person on ebay I told them it wasn't fornasetti and they ended there listing!!
  27. SEAN68 SEAN68, 1 year ago
    I have to say they are NOT VERY CLEAR in there description because most titles in ebay for seller always says in the title" style like"
  28. SEAN68 SEAN68, 1 year ago
    Hello Amberrose I still say they are beautiful regardless of what they are!!!
  29. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    Ammber Your cigar plates are wonderful for people who collect smoking memorabilia . So unusual to want to eat off a tray of pipes . I love them whatever they are :-) xoxo
    Nice find
  30. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    LOL My M sticks I really don't stutter . Sorry about that you barely touch it and it shoots out seveal M's . If they were real M&M's I would be ok with that . So Amber sorry on 2 M's in your name :-( xoxo
  31. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    Mani, I thought you were purring my name. Oh, and I think they are coasters.
    Interesting debate about the semantics of eBay listings. It is a buyer beware world out there.
    Regardless, they are now going in the Randolph pile. I picked them up because I knew several folks really like the Fornasetti and for a couple of bucks, why not.
