Beware of fake Scottish Pottery Wemyss Ware Pigs.

These pigs are imported from China and made to deceive.

They change hands for about £10.00 each in England.

Find them at Car boots, Auctions and on Ebay. They are

are in shades of pink. They are all perfect, all over glazed,

all have the R.H.&.S Wemyss Ware mark, which is very

crudely applied to the base of one foot. They are all

too long in length, usually about 7 1/2" to 8"

Also be careful about the very large pigs with roses and bees on them.

They are again made in China and are aged and crazed to make them look

old.  They have no mark on the base only raised circle.

They are being sold in Great Britain and America.  They make around £20.00

at Car Boots.
