Errr I just rang my home insurance company and without being able to tell them if it was signed or unsigned they wouldnt even give me a rough estimate of price for insurance on my banksy print...
Anyone got any rough ideas for either? I do believe it's a signed and numbered piece I bought at an Art Republic underground exhibition in brighton quite a few years ago but I'm not sure (about the signature hehe and obv not at home at the moment).
What's really annoying is I only renewed my house insurance about 1month ago and I have a horrible feeling this is going to push it up. I never realised my banksy could be worth much to anyone but me.

Well, if Bonhams has anything to go by then about £12k... To value it at £12k rather than £5/6/7k it'd go for on ebay at the moment won't cost you too much more, it'll save you revaluing it in 6 months / a year and will mean if the worst comes to the worst you'll have a bit left over from an insurance payout after you've replaced it

thanks for that... no ebay at work and the misses is moving in shortly with her nipper who has a habbit of climbing and knocking things down. I don't mind, I just want to make sure anything I have is easily replaced if necessary. After all, that's what's insurance is for isn't it.
I just had another look at my print and it has no stamp on it. Now, I bought it from an 'Art Republic' underground exhibit quite a few years ago. To be honest, I cannot even remember when, probably 5/6yrs ago. Would there have been a stamp on the art work from that long ago?
I've had a chat with the misses and she thinks it might be best to sell what I have and then I can put that money towards a signed one which would definately be a preference for me as well, I mean, who wouldnt want a signed print.
And how would be the best way of going about selling a piece or two? ebay i presume? Damn late night whiskey sessions, kids are gonna put a stop to this a bit hehe
