'Renoir painting' snapped up at US flea market

#1
From the BBC:
"It was bought by a woman as part of a box lot that included a doll and a plastic cow, and cost about $50.
She took it to a Virginia auction house where experts said they believed it was Renoir's Paysage Bords de Seine - a river scene - from about 1879.
The auctioneers expect it to sell for up to $100,000 later this month.
It is believed the painting was bought from a Paris gallery in 1926.
A Renoir plaque on the frame prompted the woman to have it analysed by a local auction house."

a. Lucky bitch.
b. Illiterate seller - sadly didn't sport the Renoir plaque.

'Sport' or 'spot'?
