We are incredibly fortunate to have our own in house Forensic expert, which is very rare. Jane has a Doctorate in the Forensic Science's with a Specialty in Document Examination & Pigment testing. She has freelanced globally, for major Galleries, Auction Houses , Police Forces, International Criminal Agencies & Authentication Companies. She has also extensively collected Modern Post-War Prints and original paintings for over 25 years. Due to her talents, she has also given Expert Witness, to several major Court Cases both at home & abroad. Jane has also a medium sized but highly specialised collection of original paintings, having had one of her most recent Basiquat's sell for just under half a million Dollars at Auction.
As well as having the talents of Jane we also have enormous input from Chris, who has worked at both Bonhams, Phillips Auctions Houses & is our Senior Business Partner. He specialises in Antiques & Fine Art's. Chris has accumulated a vast portfolio of his own & also Trades during his spare time (work allowing of course). After leaving Sydney University, he exclusively worked for some of the major Auction Houses in Australia, including Bonhams & Phillips. All told Chris has clocked up over 30 years experience with Antiques and Fine Art.
As well as our two highly trained professionals, this is further enhanced by my overarching 18 years experience in the Industry. The Cherry on the Cake is our immensely skilled network of International Specialists, which serve to support any unique or highly complex areas. All items are poured over, with Love, Care & Attention. No matter what the monetary value to us is, we know your buying something, that you we hold precious. This is how we can unequivocally GUARANTEE, every single item we sell.
To quantify that: this means should you ever become dissatisfied with the origins or originality of your item, you can send it back to us for a credit or exchange. To augment that, we also allow a additional 3 weeks, for you to assess the item upon arrival.
