How To Tell If Art Is Fake

Compare The Difference

real or fake
Click to Enlarge

Real works of art & their forged counterparts have some slight differences... If you're worried about fakes, check which art is real from the table above before purchasing!

Real Art Has Authenticity Tag

Real Art has Authenticity Tag

Upon purchasing a piece of art, you can view a Painting's back or the underside of a statue to check for a mark of authenticity. This will prove it's authentic since fake art will not have it.

Compare With The Actual, Real World Piece Of Art!

When you purchase a work of art from Redd, you'll need to determine whether the art you are buying is real or fake. By comparing the fake art with the original art that exists in real life, you can find the slight differences and tell if it's real or not.

Works Of Art With No Fake!

Just like in previous entries in the Animal Crossing franchise, there seem to be some works of art which don't have an in-game fake version! Check the table below and if you find a fake version of these, please let us know!

Some Fake Art Is Haunted!

FAMILIAR STATUE FOR SALE!
PRICES GO FROM 5 MILLION BUT I MAY DO MIL! PLEASE REPLY WITH @GRACE IF YOU WANT IT!!

Anonymous 80

I've had Apollo living on my island for nearly three weeks now, been to his birthday party and then he sends me a gift in the mail and it's a fake mystic statue. Is that new?

Anonymous 79

The fake beautiful statue can be looking down with a necklace too!

Anonymous 78

Looks like the beautiful statue has two games. She can also be standing and facing right without the necklace

Death the Kid 77

Just for the people who might wonder why the hell they don't have at least one real one to choose from: there is apparently a 10% chance that Redd only has fakes! I had this *twice* already, so 10% my ***.
