Authenticity Testing services

Our authenticity testing services cover the testing of fired ceramic antiquities, including earthenware, stoneware, porcelain and the casting cores of bronzes. In order to test your piece or collection, we need to take a small sample. The sampling method depends on the material we are testing.

Our authenticity testing sampling is always carried out by a fully qualified Oxford Authentication® member of staff or an accredited agent, authorised by us. The sampler will document and photograph each object at the time of sampling. The samples, documentation and photographs are then sent to our Oxfordshire laboratory for testing.
