Title Sepia photo of French garrison artillery
Nationality British
Period c 1880-90
Price £40.00

This sepia photograph, pasted on card cut from a page from a British military album, shows a howitzer of the French garrison artillery, together with a group of officers and senior NCOs. The caption in English underneath simply says 'French Artillery'.

The photograph measures 23.5 x 16.5cm. There is some buckling and shrinkage of the card backing, but the image remains nice and sharp, with little or no abrasion to the surface. The overall colour is a somewhat yellowed sepia.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
