of it is made with terra cotta clay; a dead giveaway that it's a fake!). Remember, a picture may look exactly like the BW in the book, and it may even have the same mark as the book, but, if you don't know your pottery, you may be purchasing a fake piece, so be careful who you purchase from. It it is 'too cheap' in price, then it probably is not the real deal. Foreign countries often reproduce the more expensive pottery with the intent to fool the unsuspecting consumer.
