Anthea's Attic has clarified that the Antique large Georgian oil painting portrait of a gentleman Stanley Jones of Broadgate, Ludlow (LA315826) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1800-40
Condition commensurate with age - various superficial marks & scratches and crackling to paintwork. The main thing to note is that the gentleman's attire has been coated with gilt (not paint) for reasons unknown but all part of its character. Priced accordingly. A beautiful old portrait - best described as Faded Grandeur due to its condition.
If you can collect from our home in London, that would obviously be ideal. We do travel about from time to time so do ask if we are able to deliver for a small fee in the near (or not too distant!) future - perhaps a long shot but worth a try. I have quoted £100 postage to cover the cost of a courier but this can obviously be refunded if it comes to less or if you can collect. We are prepared to obtain a quote from Pack & Send to pack and post abroad but it will be very expensive, probably around £500 (an estimate, not an exact quote), to give you some idea of cost. This item is obviously delicate and the gesso frame fragile. Therefore, whilst every care will be taken to pack this item extremely well, I cannot guarantee that some pieces of plaster will not become fragmented and dislodged. Please understand this before committing to buy and it will need to be understood that the item cannot be returned for this reason.
