      WARNING: If you are interested in a real antique for sale, contact a
      museum! They often have real stuff that they have extras of to sell.
      Make sure you're not buying a fake.

      OR go reproduction route if you don't want to break the bank (the
      other links give you a good idea of what to look for)
