We are a small independent fine art dealership based in Hove, East Sussex. We specialise in works on paper and small oils and sell on-line through this web gallery (exclusively prints and drawings) and also through our Ebay Store. Our main area of interest is with works from the etching revival from Goya in the nineteenth century through to the likes of Leonard Squirrel in the second half of the twentieth century. The Proprietor, Adrian Money, has been a collector of etchings and drawings for many years but only started to deal in art having retired from his job as the headmaster of a large secondary school in Sussex in 2009.
We source our works from private collections, auctions and fairs and we usually sell prints un-framed. The reasons for this are manifold, the most important being that it is impossible to be certain about the condition of the print and more importantly the medium employed (it is almost impossible to tell the difference between good photogravures and etchings when under glass). Secondly unframed prints are much easier to pack, cheaper to send and more likely to arrive safely.
We offer a guaranteed 100% refund of the purchase price (less shipping costs) should you be disappointed in any way with a purchase from us or simply change your mind, providing the item is returned in good condition within 14 days of you having received it. Our Ebay Feedback will I hope be testament to our excellent customer service.
If the item is damaged in the post (this is extremely rare as we pack so well) or if the item has been inadvertently mis-described then we will refund the purchase price and double the shipping cost (to cover your return shipping costs to us).
The name Barham Money is derived from one of my middle names and my surname, both shared with my father and my son. The middle name "Barham" relates to Lord Barham, 1st Lord of the Admiralty at the time of Trafalgar who is my five times great grandfather.
The coat of arms we use as our logo was last registered with the Royal College of Arms by my great great grandfather's older brother in 1848, although by that time it had been used by my family for at least 100 years - the circles within it are bezants (roman coins) - a play on our name "Money". Our motto "Factis non Verbis" (By deeds not words) seems a suitable motto for someone in trade hoping to offer a truly first-class buying experience.
The coat of arms is described by Burke's General Armory thus: "Or, on a pile azure, ten bezants, four, three, two, and one; on a chief ermine, a lion passant of the second, langued gules. Crest – A bezant between two wings azure, each wing a semée-de lis or. Motto – 'Factis non verbis', and in slightly more detail by Fox-Davies thus "Or, on a pile azure, ten bezants, four, three, two and one, on a chief ermine, a lion passant of the second. Mantling – azure and or. Crest – On a wreath of the colours, a bezant between two wings azure, each wing semée-de-lys or. Motto – 'Factis non verbis.' Livery – Dark blue, yellow facings.
