This is a long video but I found it interesting. We all know there are fakes out there but the levels people go to are worrying.

It doesn't refer to snuff bottles only to jade and ceramics.

Sad, very sad  but true.

That's  the main reason Chinese tourists come to  Hong Kong  . They nearly all  come just to  buy designer-label  clothes, expensive jewelry and wrist watches, and brand-name cosmetics  (and baby milk powder)

There are even fake eggs : yes  it is cheaper to make a fake hen egg than to  raise  hens to  lay them

Hong Kong  gets over 60 Million tourist  visitors  per  year (most of  whom  come from China  to buy things  here) . That is almost  10 x the  population of HK. Imagine how the USA (not to  mention  President  Trump !) would handle 10x its population as tourists -  that's  3  Billion tourists per  year,  twice the entire  population  of  China

Cheers
Peter

It is long but so worthwhile to watch.  I am amazed and convinced even more to do my best researching before investing.  Thanks so much for sharing this video.
