THERE IS NO MENTION OF SIZE (CM's) AND I CAN'T READ GERMAN OR DUTCH.
LOOKS TO GOOD TO BE THE REAL DEAL. GOOD LUCK!

I have an older repo sign that is just like that. I would pass... It is about 16 inches from hook to hoof.

I have seen these at swap meets, some fitted with neon. One vendor indicated that it is a 'fantisy piece'

Thank you gentlemen!

Seller did reply my question regarding items age and he told it was at least 15 years old... So its repro.
Btw hes negative feed back was from seller who didnt combine shipping cost for 4 different items from same seller.

Thank you!

The one one on eBay is easy to recognize as a repro. Have a look at the white line going almost horizontal on the rear leg - this line should follow the leg curve and go up and then turn left a little bit into the belly of the Pegasus.
Have a look at this one and you can see the difference. But beware, because they are also reproduced in the correct way.

Claes
