  1. Ranchi Art & Antiquarian Books has decided to offer the option of Free Worldwide delivery on all Unframed Paintings if preferred. Unless specified all paintings will be shipped framed and the appropriate shipping charge will be applied.

    The cost of shipping framed, glazed paintings can be very high and obviously a somewhat risky operation considering the fragility of glazed frames and the limitations of Courier insurance cover. 

    Shipping unframed will save the purchaser the added expense and will give the opportunity of framing the painting to your own requirements and preferences but, of course, this will incur additional expense in reframing.

    If you wish to avail of this option please state this when making your purchase and set the Shipping charge to zero. Otherwise, the stated Shipping charge to your country of residence will apply as detailed in your item's listing and the painting will be shipped fully framed.

    In certain cases it may not be possible to ship a painting unframed and I will advise you in such cases and offer the various options available. 

    Shipping charges for Books to Worldwide will be as stated in the item listing. 

    Please contact if you have any queries.

    Thank you.
