Fine Art/fire damage


I have two paintings from a Durham castle but there fire damaged what can i do as there from the 1600 so i am led to belive from family  

Dear Denis,

They sound like they are important paintings. I would contact the E.C.C.O.

E.C.C.O. is the European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers' Organisations.

E.C.C.O. seeks to develop and promote, on a practical, scientific and cultural level, the profession of Conservator-Restorer of Cultural Property.

E.C.C.O. represents, through their professional associations, more than 5.000 members throughout Europe from 16 countries within the European Union #EU# and the European Free Trade Association #EFTA#.


I hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,

Fine Art

I can assist with identification, acquisition, representation, and care of fine art prints and original paintings. I can provide information that will assist you in determining the value of your art; but I do not give valuations on allexperts.
