Wolf Burchard will share entertaining anecdotes and review the challenges of examining furniture, confirming authenticity and making firm attributions.

Through a richly visual presentation, with key examples both from the National Trust and other collections, Burchard will illustrate how to spot a fake and what are the risks or stakes if one cannot tell the difference.
