Fakes, etc.

I'll begin populating this page with photos of reproductions, fakes and fantasy items as I see them listed on eBay, Etsy and other such sites. Hopefully, collectors will refer to this page to minimize the occasions reproductions, fakes and fantasy items are unknowingly purchased. If you see something on this page that was sold to you purporting to be a vintage item, immediately send it back for a full refund. 

This is one of the first of the fantasy items to infiltrate widely into many collections. These first began surfacing at the Atlantic City antiques show in ~1995. This has no collectible value. Around 1995, I was fooled into buying one by an unscrupulous dealer who refused to refund my money when confronted with the fact that this was a fantasy item. Needless to say, I have never bought another item from her.
