CONTEST COVER FILE.jpg

This is the fifth instalment of my #SpotTheFake contest and it seems to get more and more entries every week. This week there were 35 entries!! WOW!!! I feel so grateful for this. Thank YOU for taking part 🌸

🌸WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?🌸

I will be running #spotthefake every Tuesday, and I will post a few pics of a few antiques. It may be antique lighting, antique furniture, or even top designer furniture. One or more will be fake or reproduction.

It's up to you to #spotthefake. Post your choice in the comments, and maybe let me know why you think that.


🌸RULES🌸

  • To enter, you must upvote and resteem my post
  • Leave your choice in the comments, only one image is fake! 😍😍
  • The prize will be 5SBD, payable once the 7 days is up.
  • I will take all the correct answers, of the qualifying entries and do a random draw with this site

🌸LAST WEEK'S WINNER🌸

Well done, @rayelite1. You are the winner!

Almost all the entries had the correct answer, but unfortunately, some entrants did not resteem, so they did not qualify for the Random Thing Picker draw. Don't forget to RESTEEM

The first pic was the fake. We buy both the reproductions and proper vintage lights in India, from the same supplier. So this supplier is able to make exact copies of the vintage lights at his factory, and his copies are PHENOMENAL. A lot of people commented on the shininess of the light in Image One, but don't forget that aluminium (or any metal for that matter) can be polished up to a high shine!

Quite a few peeps noted that the second image looked "fake" because it was so perfect. This is a good observation. A lot of the time, repro pieces are sooo good that you cannot tell the difference. Sometimes I can't tell, after doing this for almost five years. It takes a very sharp, trained eye to Spot The Fake!! (I couldn't help that lol!!)

🌸 SPOT THE FAKE #05 - ANTIQUE FRENCH SOFA 🌸 🌸

This week, I am testing your newly trained eye! Both of these sofas have new fabric on, but only one is a proper antique sofa. Often, we will buy a piece of furniture with completely ripped and/or soiled fabric, and the piece will have to be reupholstered. In these cases it's important to note details like what wood the frame is made from, whether that wood is carved, polished or painted, and in person, you can often feel the stuffing of the cushions to try to determine age.

To enter, you must UPVOTE, RESTEEM and guess the correct image! Answer will be revealed this time next week!

This is a tough one, if I could see it in person. I actually feel like the second is the fake as it looks like the popular reproductions made from the 30s-50s but maybe that is the metal studding. Hmmm. This is fun though! What a fun challenge.

·

Good observations! I will reply to this comment with the answer next week.

Hi Jay! Thank you for your entry

You guessed it! Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

My guess is that the first one is fake because it seems they used staples rather than the tacks used in the 2nd image.

·

Hello! I’m so glad to see ANOTHER new face! Welcome x

That’s a very interesting observation🤔 don’t for get both were newly upholstered.

·
·
  ·  3년 전

Thank-you. I know they were both re-upholstered, however, I would think they would attempt to keep it as original as possible and use tacks where tacks were used before. I guess I'll just need to wait and see what the final answer is.

·
·
·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

I think, picture 2 is the fake one. Because the wood looks newly curved, old furniture has the better quality and smoothness, i don't know maybe. Haha! But I still go for image 2 😅

·

Great observations!!

Very good answers, my friend, Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

·

BBBzzzzzt! Wrong! Sorry! Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

I think the #1 is fake.

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

I am so glad to have answered correctly the last time; makes me feel like I won it hahaha. This time, I think the second one is fake. As much as I like the second and don't like the first one because of its shimmery fabric, I think the finishing off the wooden structure of the second couch isn't too fine and doesn't match the French style of the couch.

·

Well, me dear, guess what?! You DID win this week! Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

My guess is that the First one is the fake. :)
The wood seems to be polished better then the second one.
Somehow to me, second Sofa seems older as the Joints of the is not hidden by polishing the wood.

But there is also the fact that there is a price tag on the second one. I marked it with blue color. So, it could be second one which is the fake.
But I will stay with the first one.

·

Hehehe! Quite the analytical answer there! I will tell you a secret about the joints next week !

·
·

Ok.. I will stay tuned :)

·
·
·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

This is a tough one for me lol. But my guess is image 1 is fake. There is something about the multiple legs and frame looking old that makes number 2 look original

·

It's nice to see the same people every week. I am so thankful for your entry! Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

I think the first one is fake so my answer is first one.
Becuase the second one looks more expensive and detailed work so the first one looks like lot more of its copy.

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Image 1 is fake.
The 2nd sofa has a very detailed works,both the frame and the cushion works.The 1st one looks like a hurry burry replica in my opinion.
This one was pretty tough.

·

It was tough, no? Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

This contest is. SO fun! Thanks for hosting it @princessmewmew! I believe the second, lighter colored sofa is the antique. The wood looks as if it were carved by hand.

·

Both were carved by hand. Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Image One is fake because the wooden proper polished in the 1st image,,,,,,,upvoted ,followed and resteemed your post @princessmewmew

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Number 2 is definitely the fake.

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

I'd say number 2 is fake, the wood looks a bit too piney and light; maybe that's the lighting though. Number one looks older and the colour of the wood is more what I imagine on a sofa of that kind.

·

Great answer! Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

The first one is fake! The couch does not cast any shadows :)

·

Lol! I feel like this couch is in Harry Potter or something with this answer Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

One is the fake. That or it's been poorly reupholstered. Two looks spot on. I don't do silly contests normally, but I found my way here by chance and thought it was time to say hello again. we've not spoken in months, and I thought about you the other day. So, hello again.

Trust me, I'm a doctor.

I think number 1 is fake. It looks too symmetrical, and machine-made. 2 has a few imperfections, and those old-style pins holding the upholstery in place. No I'll look really stoooopid if 2 is the fake lol!!

·

Actually, the perfection of the first one is the sign of true artisanal workmanship. Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Aaand that's why I'm not in the antique business... I'll give the next one a go and see how bad I do ;)

·
·
·

Hahaha! Give it a bash! You never know

  ·  3년 전

hmm, i think the second is the fake. hehe. just a wild guess. i'm not an expert on antique things so this is hard.

this is a fun contest @pricessmewmew. i'll watch for it on the coming weeks.

Image 2 is fake

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Hi!
Image 1 is fake ... The 2 is authentic because although it is restored it can be observed that it retains its original style.

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Number 2 is fake 😅

I have no expertise when it comes to furnitures and stuff like this. So this is just a guess based on how image #1 looks more vintage, so Image #2 is fake. 😅

·

good guess! Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

  ·  3년 전

Number 1 is the fake, Wood is not worn like the second one.

·

Yay! So glad you entered again! Will post the answer next week Tuesday!

·

Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

Image one is fake... Lol, am a bit confused
Just guessing though
Thanks for this, it really fun

·

it is confusing, no? Thanks for entering. Here is this week's post, and the winner! 😍 😍 😍

The second image is fake. The two supporting stand in front(middle) does not look like it was there in the initial carving of the frame
