Buyer's Premium: 

22% (2% discount on cash or debit) and HST added to all purchases

Featuring original oil paintings, watercolours and quality prints from the palatial residence of the late Lorna-Lee Snowie of Guelph, Ontario who was a judge for the Superior Court of Justice in Brampton, Ontario. 

Where the term "attributed" appears, Gardner's believe the work may be by the listed artist; where "after", "speculative", "style of", "school of" or "bears signature" appear, Gardner's believe the work is not by the listed artist.  Unless mentioned otherwise, measurements of the image are height by width, frame size not included.  A sincere effort has been made to mention any flaws but auctioneers still suggest taking advantage of viewing days.  Condition of frames not guaranteed.  

*Please note shipping of larger paintings (typically any work the frame size of which exceeds 81cm square or 32 x 32in) is not available through Canada Post.  Please contact our office prior to bidding for more information.
