In the recent theme of replica threads, I came across my first Johannes Andersen Smile Coffee Table knockoff recently on eBay. I don't believe I had ever seen one before, at least not recognized by me, and it took me a while to notice two identifiable features which differ from the original (anyone want to play Where's Waldo and see if they can find them?).
Has anyone come across a Smile knockoff in your various endeavors? If so, who is making them? I always thought it was too difficult a piece to fabricate economically for the limited market that is out there. Note that the curved "hip" joint for the legs is consistent with the original. I have not seen any close up photos to compare joint quality but it looks good from the overall shots. Starting price is $695 with no bids so far.
To be fair to the seller, the eBay listing is carefully worded to avoid claiming it is an original Smile table. However, I believe it is done so in order to dupe bidders into thinking the seller doesn't realize he has a valuable piece.
