Set of 1920s Costume Designs
I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the de Gray drawings, thank you. And many thanks also for bearing with the V&A’s acquisitions system!
1874 Long Island Map
The map arrived promptly and in perfect condition. It was a Christmas gift for our daughter who was born in Rockville Centre and it was her favorite gift. I wish you could have seen her joy when she opened the box and saw that beautiful map so beautifully packaged with care. We preserved the packaging because she had a long journey home to Europe and we wanted it to arrive in good condition! She hand carried it on the flight and let us know that they both arrived safely and intact! She is having it framed and it will be lovingly displayed in her home.
George, thank you so much for your advice when I called about which map to choose. You are knowledgeable and a pleasure to do business with. Such kindness is “old fashioned” and rare these days and we appreciate it.
I got the painting today. I love it! Thank you so much for all you did.
Linocut View of New York's Upper West Side
The print arrived safely yesterday and it’s even more charming in person. Thanks so much!
Magnetic Variations World Map
The maps just arrived. They're beautiful! Thanks very much! 🙂
Art Deco Building Model
George, the Hall of Science arrived in great shape. Please tell Jeffrey that his packaging was perfect. I collect metal bank and souvenir buildings. Thank you so much for all your effort on this. If you run across an unusual souvenir building, please let me know.
Just a quick note to let you know that the three photographs and letter arrived safely today. As always, these things are much more impressive in person. Additionally, this was very well packaged, and something I will not only greatly enjoy but well care for. Thank you again so very much, and kind regards to you.
Volckamer Citrus Print
George, it is perfect. Thank you so much.
Ferrari Citrus Prints
At last, here are the engravings situ. I am thrilled with them. I hope you agree that the colours work so well in the room with the terracotta walls and the carpet and upholstery. The frames are beautifully constructed by the same company as the Weinmann engravings.
The Ferraris hang in my Dressing Room on the first floor of the 17th century part of the house, next to a a mid-18th century gilt-wood mirror with Prince of Wales feathers. Below them is a mid-18th century mahogany basin and wig stand. In front is a Sheraton octagonal tripod table in mahogany cross-banded in satinwood and a Queen Anne cabriole-legged side chair. They stand on a 19th century Persian Bakhtiari carpet.
My mind constantly returns to the fact that Galileo was a friend of Ferrari and may have looked through the very folio from which these pages came!
With best regards and thanks for the safe and secure shipping.

Package received today. Thank you for the care in the wrapping. I’m very excited. I look forward to doing business with you again soon.
18th-Century Print for Museum Collection
I opened the print this morning, and all looks good. I really like the print and think that it can add much to our collection here. [After showing it to my colleagues,] it's unanimous. We'll be purchasing the print, George. I'm so pleased, and that it happened so quickly.

Antique Microscope Photograph
Outstanding 5-star service at George Glazer Gallery! They have amazing items and deliver first-class professional service in all aspects of the business. I was particularly impressed with the highest level of care given in the packing of fragile items — over-the-top multiple layers of protection — the way you want it to be done. Fear not! Every step of the process was smooth sailing. Friendly, knowledgeable, fair, honest — simply terrific people to work with. Highly recommend.
Weinmann Tulip Prints
The pages have arrived in the excellent packaging you provided. Thank you so much. They are great.
Today my wife picked up the Weinmann engravings from the framer. They have taken seven weeks to make the frames and hand finish them but it has been worth the wait. We went for an early 18th century Flemish style. We are delighted. I hope you agree. They are hanging in the front hall of our house in London. This part of the house dates from 1635. [See photos of them in the collector's home.]

Historic Antique 30-Inch Floor Globe on Mahogany Stand
Exciting news! The globe was safely delivered today!
Thank you for all your attention to the detail of safe packaging and the instructions for unpacking. I had several extra pairs of hands available to meet the removal courier and all has gone very well with the install as you will see from the attached photos.
Thanks again for facilitating fulfillment of a decades long ambition. I’m hoping we might get to New York in 2020, when it would be great to meet you, but in the meantime I will enjoy reading of the new arrivals at your gallery as described in your newsletter.
[See client's photos of the globe delivery, unpacking, and placement in his home.]

Whimsical Costume Designs c. 1920
The watercolors arrived this morning and they are better than I would have imagined, so many thanks!
I just received the four prints and I could not be happier. As photos of works of art can seldom do any justice, they are far more beautiful than I had expected...absolutely stunning and so very meaningful to me. Thank you.
Museum Exhibition Loan
We cannot thank you enough for your involvement in our presentation of New York on Ice: Skating in the City at the Museum of the City of New York. The exhibition had a wonderful run and was a tremendous success with members of the public and the press.
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude for your contributions to this important exhibition. Without the loan of the broadside for Conover & Walker, it would not have been possible to bring this essential New York story to our audience. It was a pleasure to work with you in bringing together this exhibition, and we look forward to future collaborations.
— Whitney W. Donhauser, Ronay Menschel Director

Thanks a lot for that great piece of artwork! It came in yesterday and it is really in great condition! Thanks a lot for that business! Will keep you in my eyes for some more nice “papers”!
Gilded Wood Satyr Mask
Found my wonderful satyr mask just googling around! I have been a carver for 30 years and have to say the quality and character in the piece is just fab! Staff were utterly charming and delivery no problem to Cornwall, UK.
Original Illustration Art, 1920s
We did receive the “Say, Pumpernickel” illustration and are very much loving it. The packaging was very impressive - I bet it would survive a dump truck running over it. In my website, I used your description for the “Say, Pumpernickel” illustration, and credited your gallery.
Thanks again for making this illustration from Edwin available to us.
Long Island Needlework Map
I am so pleased with the needlepoint map I purchased. It is one of the best in my collection. The communication with the gallery was excellent and the framed map was very well packed and arrived quickly. I would most definitely work with this gallery again.
First time to purchase from George Glazer Gallery. I'm quite impressed with the efficient service considering that I'm overseas. The three original hornbill paintings by Sandstrom are even more beautiful in person. Transaction was smooth, replies to queries were quick and cordial, packaging was secure and bullet-proof. I'm looking forward to more bird paintings of Philippine species as they are available. Thank you, George Glazer and Jeffrey Denke. Great job, gentlemen!
Custom-mounted Tiffany Cable Specimen
Finally received the transatlantic cable section today. Couldn't be more happy. Thanks again for the great service and communication throughout this ordeal ;-).
Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect gift for my 'hard to impress' attorney, he smiled and showed it off to the other attorneys. I will be back often looking for something obscure and I hope you and Jeff will be there to help me find the perfect item, you are an amazing team.

Weber Costello 8-Inch Table Globe, Image Licensing
I am sending you these copies of BusinessUSVI which I designed over the last year. It is the first issue of this magazine and I am indebted to you for the use of your beautiful globe and Jeff's incredible instant photography. I had intended to use this shot for layout purposes but the editor loved it and wanted to use it for the cover.
