Vintage Antique

Before what year is 'Made in China' marked items acceptable as being nice?

My parents and I have a vintage/antique shop and I am curious whether items marked Made in China have always been thought of as poor quality or if at one time it was not thought of. I know the country of origin requirement began with the Tariff Act of 1930. Do you think that an item made in the 1950s labeled with China or Hong Cong or Taiwan, etc would still be desirable to the general public?
Excuse my mistake, I meant Hong Kong. Don't know what made me put Cong!

Unfortunately, the Chinese are obsessed with making "replicas" of well known branded items to sell cheaply. Therefore, it is generally believed that anything coming out of China is basically fake and therefore of low value.
