The tragedy of an antique shop and the story of my tragicist who is collecting antiques.
At his own booth at the fair, however, he suddenly had a premonition and asked a friend who was knowledgeable about Seto ware to have a look at ut. Alas, the friend suspected it was a recent work―that is, a fake! So he rushed to take it down from his booth.
I had seen this Setoguro bowl on Instagram and was curious about the price, so I casually asked him on the final day of the antique fair whether it had been sold, and he confided the story above to me. There is an unwritten rule in the field of antiques that the deceived is the looser. To me, the earnest dealer’s sadness and the pitch black mentality of everyone involved in purposefully tricking him all seemed intriguing, and so I inquired about purchasing the fake. The dealer responded by offering me the said bowl free of charge, seeing it as a lesson for himself. I hesitated to receive what was essentially a lump of wasted money, $7,000 at that, but then I decided to cordially accept the offer, hoping that I could someday return the favor. In fact, I suspect that about 30% of my ceramics collection, at the very least, must be fakes. One day I intend to have a specialist thoroughly review and research my collection to have a clear conclusion, but in any case this time, it was an occasion where I intentionally tried to get involved in the “fake” side of the value system that mix facts and fiction. The concoction of values and the deals surrounding it intrigues me to no end.
