"Hi Melanie.  Sorry for this late post.  This is a beautiful Victorian advertising image.  You can get a pretty good idea as to whether it is real or a repro by inspecting the print with a 10X magnifying glass or…"

"Surely it is! If you are selling it online, just describe your conclusions and put it out there. For a $5 investment, you are certainly going to turn a profit. :)"

"I guess with the rick-rack around the bottom, I immediately think 50's-60's. Here's one on Etsy. Listed for $75!"

Identifying 40's Era Waterless Snow Music Box

Good morning! I found this waterless paper snow globe style music box at a thrift store. It's stamped Japan on the bottom. I'm guessing it's 40's era. I've looked for other examples of this and I'm striking out. Also, does anyone have info on the little German looking cardboard Christmas buildings I see popping up at estate sales? I'm well versed in midcentury housewares, but the 40's are not part of my knowledge base. Is there a name for that style of decoration? Thanks!See More

"Thank you so much for your reply! I did scour the net looking for examples of repros, but I didn't find anything which leads me to be somewhat hopeful that it's real!"

Hamilton Browne Shoe Company Art, Original or Repro?

Good morning! This is my first time posting in this forum, so if I do something wrong, have grace with me lol. I bought this at an auction not knowing exactly what it was, but I couldn't let it go with no bids, so I got it for $5. The frame alone is worth that. It's a piece of art from Hamilton Brown Shoe Company and that's about all I know. It doesn't look like a print as there's some texture beneath the glass, but it's definitely not a painting. Curious if it's a repro or an original. Also…See More
