The Jones family of Ohio is entertaining their cousin Henry, who is visiting from Belgium.

After staying for several days, Henry is getting ready to leave, when he presents the Jones with a gift.
It is a lamp that Henry claims is a very valuable antique that has been in his family for 70 years. It has small Bohemian figures that dance around the base when the lamp is turned on. Henry plugs it in to show the family how it works.

After Henry leaves, the father looks at his family, and says, "While it may be a pretty lamp, and it was nice of Henry to give it to us, it is not a Belgian antique."

Why is the father so sure?
