This is an item that has always intrigued me, and I'm considering picking this one up. It's a shame that the RZM tag is partially missing, but based on other original examples I've seen, this looks like an authentic piece to me. I've tried to count the number of "lines" in the oak leaves, but this seems to vary from piece to piece. I thought I'd post it here for opinions before I make a decision. Thanks, guys!
