I talked to Gulfiend and he thought I should post this. Says it's as fake as the day is long.
I'm glad I asked him. Although it did seem to good to be true. When I first saw it it had a buy it know of $104. I wrote and asked if it was paint or porcelain and then the buy it now disappeared. When I asked about it, he said he as selling it for a someone and he had looked at his notes wrong. It was not suppose to have a buy it now.

Yes, obvious reproduction....no where near comparable to the original of "similar" design.

I wrote the guy and told him that I showed this to some people who would know if it was fake or not, and that it was in fact a fake. He said he would let his friend know. I did not point them to Oldgas and this thread. Should I have?
