"FETCHING ETCHINGS"
Fetching Etchings

 

Welcome to Fetching Etchings Collection.

WARNING- Please read the following;

I am essentially a fanatical collector of etchings and other prints from 1800 to the Present Day and as such am not in a position to give valuations. I would recommend visiting your nearest established auction house as they are well equipped to do this. I am not always available as this is very much a part time indulgence. For much of the year, I am throwing away money on rebuilding a cottage in Normandy. In France we only have unreliable solar panels to give power to our laptops, therefore replying to emails may be somewhat erratic.  I very often put one off bargains onto   eBay   if I am in the U.K., so it is worth keeping an eye out for these.
