Vera Bassett "Refugees" Watercolour_________________cj2

Probably the best Vera Bassett watercolour I have seen. Signed lower left. Inscribed "Refugees" on the back. 28 x 38 cm sight size, add 16 cm for the mount and frame. In excellent condition. The overseas shipping cost is for just the painting without the mount or frame.

Please pay promptly. We prefer PayPal. If you pay by personal cheque, there will be a delay of about two weeks before your goods can be despatched so do not use this option if you are in any hurry at all. Similarly, eCheques take forever to clear, so be prepared for a long wait. If you are collecting in person, then cash on collection would be preferred. International payments must be PayPal only. No other form of payment can be accepted.

Ignore what it says anywhere else on this listing. Full insurance is included in the shipping charge. There is a glitch in the program which might cause it to say insurance not offered. 


Shipping to the Northern Ireland, Offshore Islands, Channel Islands and some remote areas costs more in many cases. Please do not pay until you receive an invoice from me. If in doubt, please enquire before bidding. I will always combine shipping where possible. There are usually substantial discounts for combined shipping and I will pass on any savings to you. Sometimes for international shipping if combining the shipping will bring the weight over 2 kilograms then there is no savings. Wait for an invoice from me in cases of combined shipping.

Glass will be removed from international shipments unless you specifically request otherwise and there will be additional charges for packing and postage.

I have decided to include full insurance in my postage and packing charge. No carrier will insure against damage to artwork or antiques. Therefore, I have decided to provide this insurance myself. This means you are fully insured against loss or damage in transit. In order to provide this insurance, I will obviously take great care in packing your item. There is a small charge (about 5%) included in the shipping charge for this.

Glass will be removed from all overseas shipments and all pieces of glass with either dimension greater than 45cm will be removed for UK shipments. Despite my best packing efforts, the carriers manage to break larger pieces of glass with frustrating regularity. When I do ship small pictures with glass, I will often tape the glass with masking tape. If the glass seems particularly vulnerable, I will re-arrange the picture so the the backing board is between the glass and the painting, so that even if the glass breaks it will be unlikely to damage the painting. In this case it will be necessary to put the painting back in the proper position when it arrives. Unframed pictures will be sent rolled in a postal tube if appropriate.

Because of repeated problems with shipments to Spain and Italy, I have instituted a policy of requiring a tracked signed for service on all shipments. This will entail additional postage costs. Buyers from Spain and Italy please wait for an invoice before paying.

I offer a money back no quibble guarantee. Please contact me within 7 days for return authorization. When the item is received within a further 7 days in the same condition as when it left here, your payment price will be refunded in the same manner as which it was paid. Carriage charges are not normally refundable unless fairness dictates otherwise. We try to be as reasonable as possible.


Everything I sell is used, and often is very old. In almost every case there will be damage of some kind, and usually some form of restoration and repair. This is considered normal with antique objects. I will attempt to mention significant problems, and always include excellent photographs. You should rely upon your inspection of the photographs. No representations are implied about mounts and frames, unless specifically stated, and then they are just my opinion. Authorship is similarly a matter of opinion. In the absence of a provenance, even a signed picture may be a forgery. Unless I have reason to suspect a forgery, which I will then mention, please assume that authorship is a matter of opinion. The exception would be if I say "guaranteed genuine"

Feedback: We use an automated feedback system. As soon as you leave positive feedback, you will receive positive feedback from us.

Photographs: Whenever possible, I use scans as I find they are the most accurate representation of the actual appearance of the item. For larger items, I supplement the scans with photos taken with my camera. I usually find these are not true representations of the item. I use Photoshop with camera photos, trying to get the photo to look as much like the actual object as possible. I often remove the glass, if present, from the painting before I take the photograph or scan. Please assume that all small watercolours and other paintings that normally have glass will be shipped with glass (UK only) even if it isn't in the photo. Obviously, if I say in the listing that there is no glass, then there isn't any. Oil and acrlyic paintings will normally be shipped without glass unless specifically mentioned. I remove larger pieces of glass before shipping, as they usually break in transit, often causing further damage.

A word about size: For pictures, I always give the height before the width, and always measure the actual picture size, not the size of the mount, or the backing board or the frame. All measurements are approximate to the nearest half inch or so.


And a word about descriptions: I make mistakes; everyone does. If you catch an error, please let me know. I will change my listing. I do not want erroneous listings. It just causes everyone grief. So  please send me a message if you catch, or even suspect an error. I am trying to be as honest as possible, but with your help I can do better. An auctioneer can be vague in his descriptions, because people will see the item. With eBay, you have to be as specific as possible, because if you don't describe the item, no one will find it. If I am in doubt, I will take my best guess and say so in the listing.
