I found a BLUE COUNTRY PITCHER AND BOWL SET the other day at a thrift shop. One I got it home, I noticed a hand print that must have "mistakenly" been made by touching the item before the paint dried. Do you think this piece is a "second" or a complete treasures?


Occasionally something is found with fingerprints and in my opinion it is a treasure! I doubt that this would have caused an item to go to the seconds store. Also, don't think it would affect the value either way but it is a permanent reminder of the human that helped make it
