At MastheadArt, we love our ebay customers to come back to buy more work after their first purchase!

We now have a new REWARDS scheme.

Any previous customer coming back to us to buy another item will have a super free piece of art enclosed with their next parcel.

We pick up huge numbers of smaller items in auction lots and private sales, loose pieces of art which simply come with larger lots. 
We have amassed quite a lot over the years, so we thought it would be great to use them as loyalty rewards for our customers.

It may be an original painting, a drawing, or a nice print. It might be large..or small. 
Whatever you get it is “pot luck” what we have on the day but it will be something nice which you might like to frame, give as a gift, or even sell on.

When you buy your first item with us you’ll be sent a loyalty card which enables you to get a free item of art enclosed with any subsequent purchase from us within 12mths. 
It will have a code on it unique to you which you can then quote to us when you next buy.

Item Description

”Interior with Trumpet”
Watercolour (& gouache) by
Sheila Sanford (1922 - 2009)
R.I   R.M.S.  M.A.A.

Signed lower-left and inscribed verso

Part of a large batch of good quality art by good 20th century artists, which came from a private collection in Dorset. The artist’s studio was in Shaftesbury, Dorset.
The stiff watercolour paper is clean and as fresh as the day Sheila painted it.

Exhibited at the Royal Institute for Painters in Watercolour, the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, and Miniature Artists of America. Sheila worked in America extensively (including being a judge at an international exhibition in Florida). 

In addition to her own work as an artist, Sheila worked as an illustrator for various book publishers and magazines.

The frameable area of the sheet (that which is painted) 16 x 22 cm (6.3 x 8.7 inches)

Beautiful work with vibrant colours and immense detail.
We estimate this is a 1980’s piece of work and highly collectable..Sheila had a lot of followers in the USA.

Once in a mount and a glazed frame this will be fabulous.

We want to sell's no good just "watching" won't come up for auction soon and there'll be no reminder!
So get clicking! It's make your mind up time!

Our ref S12447

MastheadArt – payment, despatch & handover information – please read 
Our stock is kept in spankingly clean off-site secure, dry, insured, commercial storage premises which open Mon-Fri 9am-5pm, and restricted Saturday hours.
When you buy an item we will retrieve it from storage within 24hrs, and to get it packed and despatched that day or the following day depending on how fast the courier collection can be booked. 

Purchases made at weekends are retrieved by us from storage on Monday, packed and then weighed & measured to be booked for collection by UPS or Parcelforce on the Tuesday or Wednesday. 
Smaller items going by recorded mainland post can often be despatched on the Monday if we aren’t too stacked out with weekend sales of large items needing complex packing. 

Our standard UK postage and packing deal 
- is usually by Royal Mail or UPS (Mon-Fri despatch and deliveries, usually 2-3 days from packing to delivery) - signature required.

If you want to use the extra-cost same-day UK despatch 
- please use the "contact seller" facility via ebay before buying to see if we are physically in the office..we cannot always pack and despatch that day if we’re out buying, delivering, or at an art fair. Large items need careful packing and booking with a courier for collection here (next day at the earliest), so do keep your expectations realistic.
We don’t want to disappoint you...but we need to be out working..that’s how we get the great stock, and these aren’t just widgets we’re despatching! We want to do the job right!
If you don’t get a fast response when using the "contact seller" mail facility in ebay, it means we’re not near our storage unit or an email connection are unlikely to get the item out until at least the next day once we’ve picked up your message and retrieved the item for packing.

Overpayment of postage if buying multiple items for postage OVERSEAS
We realise that in different countries buying multiple items from one seller sometimes mean the postage charges don’t easily combine in the charging system before ebay asks you to pay, and you seem to be paying a full despatch cost on each item. We can’t tailor additional item costs to each country but once your package of more than one item is parcelled, weighed and costed, if you’ve overpaid we will refund you by paypal whatever the overpayment is.

Remote Area Surcharges
UK locations: 
Please ask in advance of bidding/buying if it needs postage to one of the British islands: Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish remote locations etc, for additional carriage charges (we primarily use UPS for price and efficiency, but they do charge more for some postcodes, or don't serve some postcodes at all). 

Overseas locations: 
In addition to overseas shipping charges displayed for the countries we can ship to, if you know your address attracts remote-area surcharges from couriers please let us know before paying, or we reserve the right to charge you any excess by paypal invoice once the item is packed and booked for courier collection here - if UPS tell us the address attracts a remote-location charge. 
If you are unsure if your address attracts extra charges, please hold off paying and ask us to check with UPS first.

Sometimes a painting is vulnerable due to size, frame, or age, and it is better for the buyer and seller to work together to hand it over personally...or you may just be on one of our regular UK driving routes and want to ensure it doesn’t go through the mail system!
We try to be as helpful as possible to meet YOUR needs, and we’re out & about all week, so 
for the possibility of potential personal handover in the UK, see the section below-left, "Handover"

Please only buy if you are ready & in a position to pay safely online via PayPal. 
There’s nothing worse than a buyer going to ground with no communication, leaving us with a sold item but no communication of payment.
If you haven’t paid we will ask to recover payment with ebay’s help. It is only fair!
We don’t take cash, for our own safety, if you’re thinking of arranging personal handover..
We will only retrieve from storage, and start to pack an item, once we have received payment. 
Many thanks for your kind understanding
