Hello,

What do you think? Is this ****ade a reproduction? Seems to be wood inside.

Regards,
William Unland

Thanks,

It looks "similar" to others I have seen but the price was too low, and seems too "new" to be good. If a repro it is relatively well made.

Bill,

It is hard to tell from photos without having something like this in hand. As you well know. The Germans certainly have made reproduction ****ades like this for years. You can see them on German Ebay made in Prussian, Baden, etc colors that are made in the same manner as the originals with wooden or cardboard bodies and cloth covers.

If it looks brand new... it probably is.
