new seller has entered the Tiffany scene and TIFFANYFAKES.COM would
like to make you aware of what is going on. This new seller registered
with Ebay on December 29, 2005 as FINEARTIQUER and immediately started
to list Tiffany lamps that had been listed before from another seller
who is also on the SELLERS TO WATCH list. The seller has a positive
feedback which is entirely based on items purchased and not one
mention of an item sold. The items purchased average less than $25.00
each but it is an excellent way to establish a positive rating immediately.
These lamps did not sell the first time so either the owner relisted
them with a new seller or this is another name for the past seller.
30 days go by and FINEARTIQUER has changed his name, this time to
NICKSANTIQUES$$$$ and has continued to list more Tiffany items and
Tiffany era items. This seller uses the PRIVATE SELLER feature (are
not most fakes sold this way?) and had about 6 Tiffany or Tiffany
era pieces listed. He has had 2 sales (?) - one for $9100 and the
other for $5000 and both were unsigned. This is less than half what
these lamps would sell for if they were real and signed. How can
you be so lucky to find so many Tiffany lamps unsigned? Could they
have been made at night while Tiffany was asleep? Read the listing
very carefully as there is a lot of verbiage that means absolutely
nothing and to an inquiring mind, raises more questions than it
answers. Use caution and most importantly, use your brain. Notice
that none of the listings by this seller guarantee that any item
is genuine Tiffany. The latest on this seller is that he is "No
longer A Registered User" on Ebay and hopefully you were not
one of his victims. As you go through the pages of this site you
can follow these sellers as they have changed their names at least
10 times, moved their location but continue to offer the exact same
lamps and they continue to use the exact same photos for pictures.
many items listed on the site that might cause someone to question

be happy to answer any question you might have and we would remove
any items which we have mistakendly placed on the site.
are items that are listed on Ebay that contain a genuine lamp base
with a fake shade and these are placed on the site unless it clearly
states in the listing that pieces are not genuine. Any piece that
has been modified with a fake signature or is a marriage of some
type will be placed on the site. This does not apply to replacement
of non Tiffany items with other non Tiffany items such as electrical
cords and light sockets.
