Red Dots ~ Sold Tag

A red dot on a piece of art indicates that the piece has been sold. This is an American gallery tradition. By using the red dot, the gallery indicates a piece is no longer available for purchase while still leaving it on view for the remainder of an exhibit.

It's purpose is the same on a FASO website. Small red dots appear on images that have been marked with an Availability of Sold.

Red dots are specifically used to indicate that something that was for sale has been sold.
A red dot will not show on a piece marked as Private Collection.

Red Dots will only display on thumbnail images unless you have attached PayPal to your account. 

When PayPal is attached, a red dot will also show on the Zoom view of the artwork.
