Yep, probably the same one. I'm 100% confident they make their own fancies. I think they might average about a buck apiece on them in the auctions. Not making a fortune, but if they have the kilns handy, maybe they find those few bucks good supplemental income.

Reason I wondered about these was the lack of more obvious globs, plus the fact that back in 2007 when they first came to my attention they used to mix up new ones and old ones in their lots. So, since these browns look a little better than usual, I wondered if the seller might have been using real brown ones to help the fake chinas seem more legit.

Very interesting! $28 per lot.

$4000 + the joy of frustrating the marble community. (They've made it pretty clear from board posts and some of their item descriptions that that's part of their motivation.)

Now let's factor in the cost of materials and the price of ethics.
