For pictures, the measurements you find at the top of each listing include the frame of the work of art. You will find the net dimensions of the canvas or drawing at the bottom of the description.
Our paintings may be viewed in Norwich and in Paris, as well as occasionally in London and Cambridge by appointment. Please contact us if you would like further details, images, videos or a full condition report of an artwork. As you know, most of our pictures are over fifty and sometimes over three hundred years old. Frames notably may have some wear and tear; pictures may have minor blemishes or have undergone restauration. Just as for us humans, the lifes they have lived adds to their uniqueness and value.
Be assured: the antique works of art we offer are clean and cared for and fit to be displayed in a beloved home. Everything we sell, we would be happy to see on our own walls.
In terms of payment, most customers pay by bank transfer. Simply let us know which item(s) you would like to purchase, and we will send you an invoice with our bank details. Alternatively, card payments can also be taken.
We mostly ship with Parcelforce and are happy to offer complementary standard delivery for standard size items within the UK. Please contact us for a quote on oversized artworks and for overseas shipping. Unless agreed otherwise, works of paper will be shipped with the glass taken out of the frame.
While many works of art can be dispatched within days of purchase, some items may take up to two weeks to ship, due to strikes, Brexit and import delays. Please contact us if you wish to know the delivery timeframe on any particular work. Occasionally, we may ship from France, in which case, any import VAT will be at our charge.
Do be in touch! Buying art is a very personal matter, and so it's good to have a personal realtionship with your art dealer.
