On eBay in May 2016 and spotted by many of our Dutch collector friends who have contacted us. The model used for this fake is not PZH but a Regina model 322/1.

The backstamp marks are clearly copied from a Breetvelt one.

See Gouda Copies 14 for two other fakes with almost identical decors and colours of paint.




On eBay in July 2016 and seen by a Dutch collector friend who contacted us.

This is a terrible fake of a vase purporting to be from Mijnlieffs Faience-en Tegelfabriek Holland factory. It does not have the correct marks regarding the year and the mould is not even from the factory. The oak leaf mark and the decoration, as you can see from the picture on the right, is terrible and so crude!





On the auction website Catawiki.com in September 2016. You can see many other fakes with the same backstamp marks as this on our Gouda Copies pages. Another load of rubbish.





On an internet site in July 2017. The seller, who is from Los Angeles in the USA, is asking GBP 4,106! You can see many other fakes with the same style of backstamp mark as this on our Gouda Copies pages.




On eBay in May 2018 was this fake Bert Nienhuis bowl. There were no bids so did not sell. Quote from a leading expert in the Netherlands - "This Bert Nienhuis bowl, supposed to be from 1922, has modern and unskilled handwriting on the base. Many examples of the right signature and style are known to know this is a fake."





On eBay in June 2018 was this fake spider decor Rozenburg vase. If you look here on Page 9 of Gouda Copies and also search through Gouda Copies, you can see other Rozenburg spider fakes, same backstamp style, etc.




Spotted by one of our expert Dutch collector friends, these Jaap Gidding fakes were on a Dutch auction house website. Thanks to this diligence, the auction house was contacted and they have since removed them from sale.

A different vase with the same 'style of marks' was spotted on eBay in 2007. If you look on Gouda Copies Page 2, our entry for 2008 shows that vase with the same 'forgers' marks. So some 11 years later another lot has appeared. These PZH Jaap Gidding fake marks have actually been known by our Dutch expert friends since 2006. No doubt there will be others on the market - so watch out - the fraudsters are about!




Seen on an Irish auction house in January 2019. Being sold as "A Large Delft Polychrome Urn and Cover." The auction house did not respond to an email informing them it was a fake. See many examples throughout the Gouda Copies pages. Take a look at one on Gouda Copies Page 18. Always beware!
