Such a shame that someone just bought this fake Edouart from ebay. These 20th century fakes that are all supposedly American-cut come up all of the time. As you can see, the ink is black. This group of fakes all have the names of the sitter inscribed either above, below or on the opposite lower corner from Edouart’s specious signature. Look at the girl–she doesn’t look like Edouart’s work. Reader’s please send comments on what characteristics are missing for Edouart’s work, or show that this is definitely not Edouart’s work. The girl was sold with the pair in one frame, which I give no opinion about. The seller did not represent the pair as by Edouart. You can see the listing for about a month at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Two-Silhouettes-from-1840-039-s-One-by-Edouart-One-French-Unsigned-/291362701320?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=7G3STg7DcxcMfdj0O2rvURLXsBc%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc The buyer paid $565 for these two silhouettes.
