Commentary

"Fakes, Frauds and Fundamental Differences……. “An infamous name in reproductions and copyists of covered boxes, porcelain and enamels is Samson. In the 19th century the French firm of Edme Samson et Cie, of Paris, imitated various makers of fine china, enamel work and enameled boxes with incredible precision. The firm, The House of Samson, began in 1845. Edme Samson was a china decorator. As the story goes, his son, Emile, began the “reproduction business.” It started with an incident, which involved the Grand Duke of Russia. He wanted copies of Limoges Porcelain and Samson complied.”"
