Trompe l’œil, look alikes, imitations, La Boutique de l’Imposture hides its game well. This highly unusual cabinet of curiosities, installed on Rue Thérèse, is filled with surprising objects. So, will you be able to tell the real from the fake ?
This crystal service seemingly so precious and fragile? Plastic glasses. This old edition of Romeo & Juliet straight out of a period library? A note pad. This mosaic floor? A very realistic coating. Bluffing!
