I hope that you will enjoy reading these genuine comments – many from clients whom I have never met, including from all over the world. You may find these helpful when trying to decide who to trust in business today.

I receive many kind and lovely comments about the goods I sell, and I thought it would be interesting for you to hear/see some of their unedited comments. My clients satisfaction is paramount to me.

Thank you – your ongoing support for original Sporting Art is greatly appreciated.
Best wishes, Lindsey Knapp

Dear Lindsey,
As you can see, I have found the perfect spot – above the mantelpiece in my bedroom for my very special print.

The whole experience has been highly positive and you were very helpful and knowledgeable in your explanations. I feel  that I have connected with a little bit of history and that the picture is truly treasured.

The packaging was a work  of art in itself and the anticipation was heightened with all the unwrapping! Thank you and continued best wishes with the gallery.

Many thanks to Lindsey for being so helpful and ‘picky’ in getting us exactly what we were looking for.  Our bronze robin now takes pride of place in our collection – absolutely worth waiting for!!!

I have been buying various items from Lindsey for over ten years now, my most recent being a set Cecil Aldin place mats which are of the highest quality, and I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed with any of my purchases.

Whilst Lindsey is very professional, she also offers a personal touch including a wealth of knowledge about all of her collection which can often be lacking with others.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her Gallery to anyone.

Thank you so much for my place mats Activity, Strength, Brains, Quality and the Suffolk Punch. They are wonderful. The Story Mats – Tandem Driving, Card Players and The Check and Gone Away are also finding display places in my home.

Whether in colour or black and white, the mats are lovely. I also fell for three portraits of Dogs. The boxes too are smart and strong.

Thank you very much for the mats…they are terrific…I love them but haven’t really scrutinised fully as they are a present, so didn’t want to unpick them too much. Thank you also for the fridge magnet…it is up and running!

Dear Lindsey, RE: NEW Cecil Aldin Exclusive Table Mat Collection. 2019.
This is just to let you know that the mats have just arrived and we are really delighted with them, and thank you for packing them so meticulously, also for the fridge calendar and the contents of the envelope that was enclosed. We are thrilled with the quality of the mats and couldn’t be more pleased with them. The large mats are now in use and were much admired when we had people to lunch today.
Many thanks again, and best wishes,

Dear Lindsey, my day was enhanced by the successful delivery of the painting (by Daniel Crane) on Friday. I am absolutely delighted with it and the frame is perfect, as you assured me it would be.
So rarely are one’s expectations exceeded when making a purchase on-line, but in this case they well and truly have been. Thank you Lindsey! Very best wishes.

Hi Lindsey, I just wanted to thank you very much for the hunting horn. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to all my friends back home, and will without doubt purchase some more goods from you in the future. Thanks again. Best wishes,

Wow Lindsey!! It is as you said, really super. We are all impressed and it was well worth spending the money. Please thank Penny Mellis very much. The job is very well done. Had I not trusted you from the outset, I would not have gone any further with the project of having my very special print restored. I will also recommend you to anyone who needs this kind of work doing. Many thanks and kind wishes.

Hi Lindsey, Thank you! Your beautiful horn has arrived. I am using the horn everyday and am delighted with it. It is a beauty.

Dear Lindsey, Thank you SO much for sending the little wren. She is absolutely stunning! So incredibly lifelike in shape and stance, and the colouring and patination is really beautiful. I haven’t seen a free-standing bronze bird on such delicately fashioned legs before and am very impressed by this achievement and how securely she stands. As you can probably guess, I’m over the moon with her and feel very lucky to be able to own such a wonderful little piece of art. If you are ever in contact with Edgal Askelovic, please do convey my appreciation and I look forward to receiving more about him when it arrives. It has been an absolute pleasure doing business with you again and I shall always cherish both my dear little wrens. In the meantime, many thanks once again.

26/03/2014 KT. Berkshire

Lindsey, the photos didn’t do it justice! I am delighted with it, I love the way it feels so heavy, yet is supported by such delicate, life-like legs. The head on one side (so like a Robin!) is a master stroke. Many thanks.

03/12/2013 F Oakes. Birmingham

Lindsey has been absolutely brilliant in finding me the perfect hunting whip, with a real attention to detail and honesty in its description. She has provided me with all the information I required (and more!) and quickly dispatched the whip. I will certainly be back in touch with Lindsey to buy myself a whip, as this one is a gift! I couldn’t have asked for a more helpful service and a better product.Many, many thanks!

Lindsey was very helpful. I only knew the artist. I gave her a description and she knew at once the one I was after.I wanted to replace the picture my Mother had, and within two weeks this had been done. Thank you.

Dear Lindsey, The horn has arrived and is everything that I hoped it would be. From the first enquiry, to receipt of the horn, it has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with you, it is so nice in this day and age to be able to speak to someone so knowledgeable and charming. As I said, the horn is wonderful and now takes pride of place. I would have no hesitation in recommending your Gallery to any interested parties, and hopefully it will not be too long before we do business again. Many thanks again.

Items precisely as described, very well packed and promptly delivered. Delighted. Return business – a given.

Mrs. Knapp was responsive and answered my question knowledgeably with the back-up of membership in the Trade Guild. Her affection for Cecil Aldin and professionalism was easily read between the lines of her e-mails and put me at ease. I was pleased to receive the painting, packaged with intense care, and in perfect condition. I look forward to finding our next treasure with the help of Mrs. Knapp.

Dear Lindsey, My little wren has just arrived safely, thank you very much. What a truly delightfully life-like little creature and so reassuringly heavy. I really love it and greatly admire the skills of the maker. I am thrilled to bits with my Wren by Alan Glasby. It is wonderful that his son is continuing his work.

26/03/2013 KT. Berkshire

Dear Lindsey, thank you for forwarding the three little owls I ordered, they are lovely and, I think, unusual and different. I am more than pleased with them. Thank you for being so efficient and true to your word.

01/03/2013 GS. Staffordshire

I am delighted with the cufflinks and wearing them as I send this! I particularly like the fact that they are not too fiddly, and are easy to put on. They are very well crafted – I particularly like the detail and chasing to the fox heads. Thank you for your help, and the information that came with the cufflinks.

Dear Lindsey, the Cecil Aldin Titanium plate is fantastic, the wrapping/packaging exceptional and the courier outstanding! I still can’t believe the courier was so fast either. We are all in awe of your packaging … just fantastic! And of course the plate is in 100% excellent condition … I just love it, and my friends loved it too. It’s a real hit. Thank you again, most sincerely
