How to identify counterfeit classic furniture-Alice factory

2021/09/06

As the essence of my country's classical furniture, Ming and Qing furniture has naturally become a treasure collected by collectors because of its fine workmanship, full cultural heritage, and huge appreciation space. However, the ancient furniture, like other cultural relics, also has the phenomenon of fraud, and the counterfeiting methods are becoming more and more sophisticated. The counterfeiting of ancient furniture has become a thorny problem that every furniture collection, hobby and researcher cannot avoid. In fact, the authenticity of classical furniture seems difficult to distinguish, but in fact, as long as it is faked, it will be revealed in many places.

Firewood old furniture

There are two main methods for counterfeiting old wood furniture: creating traces of use and piecing together parts of antique furniture.

Manufacturing traces: pour rice water and tea water on the newly-made furniture, and then put it on the outdoor muddy soil, let it be exposed to the sun and rain. After repeated several times in two to three months, the wood grain will naturally crack , The paint is cracked and peeling, the color of the logs is dark, showing an old atmosphere that has gone through wind and rain, as if it has been concentrated in it for decades and hundreds of years, and it can deceive the layman. The water stains of genuine products are generally no more than one inch, and the fake ones often exceed a lot.

For some furniture that is frequently used, such as tables and cabinets, counterfeiters usually use steel wire balls to wipe out marks on the surface, and then burn the marks with a teacup after painting, and make a few marks with a knife. It looks like it is used. The same for decades.

In order to make a patina, some counterfeiters often use lacquer and wax color to make a fake, and even use shoe polish. The naturally formed patina does not feel cold at all, but has a soft and slippery sensation, while the newly made patina has a sticky feeling and has a strange smell. If you observe carefully, it is not difficult to distinguish the authenticity. This method is also one of the most commonly used and effective methods.

In order to achieve a more realistic effect, some bosses have also made notches on the drawer panels of the furniture that have been bitten by rats, or used old materials that have been eaten by insects to make them on key parts. Special effects.

Patchwork furniture

Often use the characteristics of wood types that are not easy to distinguish, and furniture made of poor wood is mixed with furniture made of better wood. It is not difficult for consumers who understand wood to carefully compare the various components of the furniture. This kind of nondescript ancient furniture, which has little practical value and lack of collection value, is very easy for ordinary people to be deceived. There are also complete pieces of ancient furniture mixed with common wood materials to dismantle and transform them into multiple pieces in order to make high profits. The specific method is to disassemble a piece of ancient furniture, imitate one or more pieces according to the original components, then mix the new and old components, and assemble them into two or more pieces of furniture each containing some old components according to the original style. The most common example is to change a chair into a pair of chairs, which is called the restoration of old objects. This kind of forgery is the worst. It is not only extremely deceptive, but also severely destroys precious ancient cultural relics.
