SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
To help educate buyers and sellers on how to spot fakes and reproductions, online antiques and vintage collectibles giant Ruby Lane launched RealorRepro.com on Monday, March 18, 2013.
Now, the premier online information source, for those who want to research or identify fakes and reproductions relating to the antique & vintage collectibles market, RealorRepro is powered by online antiques and vintage collectible site Ruby Lane.
“When buying or selling antiques and vintage collectibles, it is important to be able to identify whether an item is a reproduction or fake,” said Palmer Pekarek, Director of New Business Development and Communications at Ruby Lane. “The new site provides thousands of articles and photo's that detail specific attributes to look for when determining the authenticity of an item.”
RealorRepro offers an extensive, free library of articles, information, and photographs on thousands of items spanning all marketplaces and periods. Also, buyers can research items while antiquing, via RealorRepro's mobile application for smart phones and tablets.
Endorsed by Mark Chervenka, a renowned expert on antique and vintage reproductions, the site will remain current with monthly contributions from industry wide experts including Chervenka.
“Ruby Lane is a vetted site, which provides our shoppers with the peace of mind of shopping with confidence,” says Pekarek. “Unfortunately, very few antique and vintage collectible sites require that the items they list are authentic. We saw a great need to help educate shoppers and created RealorRepro for their use.”
