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.

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 fulfilment 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.

Botanical Etchings

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.

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.

Hornbill Watercolors

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!

Early 19th Century Pocket Globe

Thank you for your assistance in selecting a globe. I know my husband will love it. Perhaps it will start a new focus for his cartography passion.

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.
