Korean Candlestick?
« on: March 12, 2018, 06:36:32 PM »
IIRC this is one of the infamous Korean repro's. Dated Nov 1910. It's been a while since I saw one but I think that is the date.

EDIT:
Here is another one. This may be the Korean one.

Yes, those appear to be Korean, or at least reproduction. Another clear sign is that the rest of the candlestick is brassed out, the base has a more rounded, AE-like shape, and has an AE-type dial with a brassed out fingerwheel.

Korean or mixed with Tiawan. Phoneco and others must have sold thousands of these nov 1910 marked fakes with AE dials.The parts almost fit together if you pound hard enough.
