I would like to have your opinion on this ebay item.
It looks like a fake Pauline signature to me ( I have a signed Pauline Baynes book). Your thoughts?

Hi
I would certain question this item too. The flow of the signature (what you can see) looks all wrong and is it in pencil?
If just doesnt look right vs a genuine signature.
Seller hasnt offered any provenance so far.
Steer clear is my view.

Thanks laurel for your opinion.

I will send Pauline's signature that is in my book.
I also have a letter of provenance from the seller who knew Pauline personally and who received book from Pauline. I also have an additional letter confirming the authenticity from Danuta who was very close friend of Pauline and is a friend of the seller that the signature is original.

So when I compare two of these I think this isn't a genuine one.

I am disturbed because :

1.Pauline was a great person and a fantastic artist and it isn't fair to fake her signature.

2. this isn't fair to the buyer who thinks he is buying original.


If more people agree maybe we should report the item?
