Common sense reality check people. There is NO WAY someone has a never-ending supply of the same exact porcelain, used, preowned and vintage signs unless they are making them.These are fantasy fake reproductions listed as porcelain, used, preowned and vintage and are NOT even porcelain. The vast majority of buyers do not know the difference at all and this is what these deceptive sellers are counting on. Most of our signs are NEW and our listings are transparent. These signs are intentionally made to look old or vintage & described as preowned. The vast majority of these newbie sellers are mass producing their "preowned" signs of just about everything vintage they can find on the internet.
Of course, these sellers are purposely not transparent with their descriptions. They are intentionally vague as most buyers do not take the time to do the research. In addition, they describe them as porcelain & 99.9% are. The vast majority are a digitally enhanced graphics on steel or tin & then beat up using a multitude of various methods to accelerate an aged appearance. Everything from soaking in acid solutions & various concoctions of special chemicals all mixed, used & designed to produce & sell preowned signs with a vintage appearance.
All of this performed in the art of deception. Inspecting the back of the signs they are all virtually identical. Either black or white with bubbles & scratches here and there in various different spots.
Ultimately, it is very easy to spot these types/kinds of signs. There are dozens of sellers practicing the same identical questionable business practices mass producing fake porcelain fantasy signs.For the most part many of these signs are of decent quality & reasonably priced. However, several of these sellers have literally pirated Electolite® original images & artwork designed by Electolite® years & literally decades ago. If you GOOGLE Reddy Kilowatt almost every third image on the Worldwide web is associated with Electolite®.
