The information below will hopefully answer any questions you may have.
Many pieces of art we sell are used, and often very old. As with many vintage or antique pieces of art, damage and/or restoration / repair may have occurred. If there is any noticeable damage to the painting we will outline this in the ‘Notes’ section on the individual item page. We will also include relevant images within the item page. The images of the paintings and other artwork displayed on the website are captured digitally. While great care is taken to reproduce the exact colours of the original piece of art, please note there may be variations in the shades and colours. Should you require any further information on any of our pieces for sale please contact us via our ‘Contact Us’ page.
The full details of how each piece is presented and the condition information can be found in the ‘Description and Notes’ sections on the individual item page. Check carefully to see how your work is sold. Some art buyers prefer to frame the artwork themselves. Should you wish to purchase any item that is framed, unframed please do get in touch prior to purchasing and we will be happy to assist. Again as many pieces of work are vintage / antique there maybe some damage to the frames and we will outline this in the ‘Notes’ section on the individual item page.
The dimensions shown are the artwork size shown ‘height’ followed by ‘width’. Where applicable we will also state the total size including frame.
On any framed items which contain glass we will remove the glass prior to dispatch upon request. We do however remove glass from any items which are to be sent overseas. (Further details regarding items containing glass and our insurance policy can be found in the 'Delivery / Despatch' section below.)

Full insurance is included in the postage and packing charge. No carrier will insure against damage to artwork so we provide this insurance ourselves. Unfortunately we are unable to insure against damage to glass in transit.
Glass will be removed from all overseas shipments. If your shipment is within the UK and you also wish for the glass to be removed from your purchase we will do this upon request. Please contact us by email quoting your order reference.
All items will be packed as well as possible and where necessary glass will be covered in a glass protection film which can easily be peeled off the glass upon receipt. Despite our best efforts occasionally glass can be damaged in transit and this film enables the glass to be removed in one piece without damaging the artwork. Please note, getting a custom sized piece of glass from a local supplier is often surprisingly inexpensive.
Smaller paintings are usually sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery or another courier service where tracking is provided and will require a signature on receipt. For larger and high value items we use a speciality courier service and this will be discussed with the buyer prior to dispatch to ensure someone will be available to receive the painting at its destination.
All works will be sent within 7 working days and you should receive works within 10 days however delivery is usually much sooner. As soon as the item is dispatched you will receive an email confirming dispatch. Should there be any delay in dispatch of your order we will contact you by email.
Unfortunately we cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes.
If your order is being shipped outside of the UK it may be liable to local taxes or duties. Any such charges are your responsibility.
