When you state a
Lot is in Pristine Condition, what does that actually mean?
eBay Lot is referenced as being in Pristine condition, that means the Fine Art offered for sale is
without apparent condition flaws, and is sold unframed., and has
never been framed, hinged or matted.
For reference, a Work of Art will
only be described as Pristine if Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd. is able to confirm the respective
Work of Art offered for sale has been archival stored since it was originally
published, and never framed, matted and/or hinged.
On the other
hand, if a Work of Art is framed, it will never be described as
"Pristine". We do not use the term perfect to describe
any Work of Art ever; perfect is not an appropriate description for a Work of Art and we question any Art Seller and/or Dealer who refers to Art being sold as "perfect".
How careful are
you assessing "Condition"?
K Levene Fine Art Ltd, is vigilant when
assessing the Condition of Fine Art offered for sale on eBay or elsewhere.
We believe that Condition is best when it is provided and reported in
an objective manner by a Fine Art Professional with the appropriate credentials. Too often, Fine
Art Buyers are told a Work of Art is "mint" and/or "not faded" when the
contrary is true, resulting in the purchase of inferior Art. The truth
is there is no savings as the purchased Fine Art is not worth buying.
We invite you to read Condition
Matters for more about this subject.
Description mentions that the Work of Art is "Unframed", will you frame

Framing costs are additional and require approximately three additional
weeks before the Work of Art will be ready for dispatch. Payment must
be made in advance for Works of Art that we frame on your behalf.
