Information about fake cut glass: (reproductions sold by Herb Wiener and others) /store/fakeglass1.aspx
Article by Max Redden listing some of the patterns of fake glass sold by Herb: /store/fakeglass2.aspx
Herb had a keep sense of patterns and how they fit on blanks, and plates often showed the patterns the best. He sold a lot of reproduction 7", 10" and 15" plates. If you asked about a pattern or had done business with him he would often have a piece he wanted to show you and would pull it out from a box under the table (these would almost always be the reproductions.) The modern day equivalent is buying real American Brilliant Cut Glass on eBay and then have the seller offer you a very good deal on other glass that he has (the reproductions in Herb's case and he does sell cut glass on eBay) - this glass won't be seen and vetted by others. Be knowledgable about what you are buying!
