35th Annual Red Wing Collectors Society
Red Wing Collectors Society Releases List of Stoneware Fakes
by Larry Birks
Red Wing, MN – Red Wing Collectors Society member Larry Birks was the keynote presenter at the 2011 MidWinter GetTogether in Des Moines, IA last weekend. Birks has spent over a year researching and documenting stoneware fakes found by himself, other RWCS members, antique shops, and auction houses.
The RWCS and Birks felt it was important to publish his list of fakes along with photo examples and a PDF that anyone can download.
If anyone finds additional stoneware fakes, please email the photos and information to the RWCS executive director, Stacy Wegner, email@example.com.
