Re: Is it Fake or Not? 3

Thanks again guys for this good job! Just a question: is the small round stamp we can find at the bottom of the cup a guarantee of authenticity?

Thank you for your answers child and zolotnik!
Just to learn a little bit too, what makes you think this cup is authentic? Is that only wisdom and experience or...? Is there a concrete approach that everybody could use?

Thanks again!
