Question
I bought a 12.5x12.5 piece of art by Salvador Dali
the back is sealed with brown paper but has labels on it that read:

(Spanish 1904- )
BASKET OF BREAD
La Corbeille 'a pain- Der Brotkorb
Il cesto per il pane- La cesta del pan
(Oil on panel 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" , 32 cm x 32 cm, 1926)
Original state before restoration , 1966
Collection of Mr. and Mrs. A Reynolds Morse

Then below is a sticker brown and gold
Creative Custom Framing
Fraber Gallery (I dont have the font to make it look like the actual printing)
Division of Craft Corner
Ashdale Plaza (703) 670-5927
2918 Dale Road Dale City, VA 22193

Signature on the front left bottom as you look at it with 1928 under signature.  Not Numbered.  

How can I tell if it is real or not?

Answer
Are you saying you have an Oil painting or a print.

I doubt you have the famous painting "Basket of Bread" by Dali.

Reynolds Morse was the founder of the Dali museum and was a Dali supporter for many years. You might have a museum replica or print?

There are no signed prints in the Dali archives material with that title.

Not sure what you have.

Expertise

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
