    i have found this piece it is a replica but so well made you cant tell without careful examination its signed like a work of art should be.. do you think someone in your field may have done this and would it be easy to find out who?

      While some of us conservators have a background in art, and many of us create art on the side, we’re not in the business of creating replicas, other than the things we make for exhibit purposes or for treatment testing. You say that this piece is signed? I guess I would start with that and try to look the person up. I wish I could be more helpful, but I’m sorry to say that this is something I probably can’t say much more about.
