18 Percent Of Antiques In China Are Fake

Hartford York Hats - Summer Straw Hats - Men's Borsalino Straw Fedora Hat - The Baku FedoraThat’s a pretty bold headline, but the source (GullibleInfo.com) is impeccable. (I think.)

Anyway, it’s a good thing to keep in mind, next time you’re winging it to China and planning on loading up on Oriental curio for investment purposes.

Like any piece of art (hats excluded of course), if you buy something because you like it, and you don’t care if it appreciates over time, then you’re safe. But if you see an antique such as a Tibetan Rice Bucket (a well-known scam) or some so-called 19th century Chinese measuring boxes that you’re planning to retire on, well…better get some expert advice first.

You did know, did you not, that hats are considered works of art?

And you, in your hat, you’re a real piece of work.
