You have been around for a while, 295 posts, are you asking us, who most of us have been putting down reproductios, to believe this is an original. Just come out and say, it is an original or it is a fantasy piece.
Actully I don't have a problem with it being a fantasy item, just as long as I know what it is.
I wouldn't purchase it, but it does look like something I might see in a restaurent devoted to old petro items. Maybe that is your market.
