  1. Transportation
    We employ only proven transportation agents: DHL or Estonian Air Mail.
    Special custom-built boxes are used to ensure the safety of any icon during the delivery.
  2. Insurance
    All items are insured for damage or loss during the delivery.
  3. Payment
    Currently, we accept payments by bank transfer only.
  4. Guarantee
    Crucial attributes of any icon of our collection are expressed in a certificate, which is made after an expert analysis.
  5. Expertise
    Definition of authenticity is the first and easiest task of our experts. Second step is a technical research, when attribution is being made.
    And the third stage is the collection of historical data about provenance of an icon.
    Direct communication with actual owners is invaluable for receiving exact and full provenance information.

    Besides our professional expert staff, we cooperate with the expertise division of State Museum of Art of Estonia "Kadriorg", and sometimes, we invite their experts to assist us.

    Our knowledge base was formed for decades and contains several thousands of signatures, ornaments, dowels, paints and other attributes of ancient icons.
