From our clients...


I purchased some lovely medical engravings from this vendor, and the experience was excellent. Alexandra communicated promptly, held several items for me while I made a final decision on which to purchase, and provided a shipping option that was secure and well priced. I would happily purchase from here again.

Alexandra is a wonderful dealer, responding to emails, checking in on the process, ensuring that everything is going as planned. I'll be keeping a close eye on Houselore's new treasures and hope to be buying from Alexandra again.

Ordered two lithographs and they are in great condition, absolutely perfect for who I bought them for. Fast shipping, super friendly, and very knowledgeable about their products. Can't wait to order more cool stuff!
