Contrary to popular belief its not just Guinness items that are being faked. There are numerous items, such as SS RNLI,or SS PACIFIC, Or ROSEMARY ship (actually a model of the QE2) Hitler figure, WWI Tanks (in a drab green or brown glaze), Cannons, which were never made by the factory. The list is endless. The most recent items (May '08) are a peg-leg egg-cup and licorice allsorts mugs and containers. Don't be fooled.
