COLOUR & ANOMALIES
Although we are confident in our fine art reproduction team, their processes and ability to produce limited edition art that is as closely matched to the original product as possible, goods may not appear the same colour as shown on our website this is simply due to limitations of browser monitors and software.
Within acceptable limits, there may occur blemishes in our frames, such as small knots, which is a natural occurrence in many frame mouldings and not considered defective in any way, this all adds to the character and individuality of the product.
