Signs of Danger

Fake Porcelain Signs in the Market

We fell for this one, learning that a white foundation and volcano-like mounting holes (not drilled), along with a similar example held by the Minnesota Historical Society (our bad for not noticing the size difference) are not enough. Fakes can still slip by without due diligence.

This lesson cost us $5500.00. The buyer was promptly refunded.
