🌸LAST WEEK'S WINNER🌸
Well done, @sharoonyasir. You are the winner!
NO YOU GUYS!! I cannot believe it, sooo many people thought the second, gold couch was the real antique. I thought it was so clear that the first image with the red velvet was the real deal.
A lot of entrants mentioned the joints, and the fact that they are visible. This is a sign of bad workmanship, guys. You would NEVER see this on an antique. Another point was the brass tacks used, and the lack thereof on the first pic. This is just a specific style design point, mainly on French pieces. The first pic didn't have the tacks, but that doesn't mean that it's not old.
🌸 SPOT THE FAKE #06 - ANTIQUE FRENCH GOLD MIRROR 🌸 🌸
So, for this week's comparison, I am asking you to have a look at these two gold painted wooden mirrors. The fake is a very good, and I will be surprised to see many people get this right. The typical characteristics of a carved French mirror are very fine and delicate carving, painstakingly careful paint techniques and (most times) a beautifully bevelled mirror.
Using these guidelines, please tell me which image you think is the fake!
To enter, you must UPVOTE, RESTEEM and guess the correct image! Answer will be revealed this time next week!
