RUBY LANE LAUNCHES A NEW SITE: REAL OR REPRO

To help educate buyers and sellers on how to spot fakes and reproductions, Ruby Lane its pleased to announce that today it launched a new site called RealorRepro.com.

Serving as the new online information source for those who want to research or identify fakes and reproductions relating to the antiques & vintage collectibles market, RealorRepro is powered by Ruby Lane.

RealorRepro offers an extensive, free library of articles, information, and photographs on thousands of items spanning all categories and periods. Also, buyers can research items while antiquing, via RealorRepro's mobile format that is smart phone and tablet-friendly.

“When buying or selling antiques and vintage collectibles, it is important to be able to identify whether an item is authentic or whether it is a reproduction,” said Palmer Pekarek, Director of New Business Development and Communications at Ruby Lane. “The new site provides thousands of articles and photos that detail specific attributes to look for when determining the authenticity of an item.”

Real Or Repro is endorsed by Mark Chervenka, a renowned expert on antique and vintage reproductions who also contributed much of the site's content. It will remain current with new monthly contributions from industry wide experts including Chervenka.

“Ruby Lane is a vetted site, which provides buyers with the peace of mind to shop with confidence,” says Pekarek. “Few antique and vintage sites require that the items they list be authentic. We saw a great need to help educate both buyers and sellers, and created RealorRepro for their use.”
