The difference between fakes and forgeries has recently been defined as follows: “A fake is a genuine article, if of somewhat mediocre character, that has been made more interesting and desirable by deceitful reworking. A forgery, as in the matter of banknotes, is an article made newly and wholly for the purpose of deception.” Oliver Watson, “Fakes & Forgeries of Islamic Pottery,” in the Victoria and Albert Museum Album, 1985.
