Though all comments are seen by me, they are not visible to the public unless the sender specifically requests the comment to be made public, or gives permission upon being asked. So by default, any message sent to me is kept private unless otherwise requested.
Often people write to me asking for information about an icon they may have or about some other icon-related matter, and I am happy to tell them what I can. But keep in mind that I cannot provide monetary appraisals because my interest in icons is scholarly rather than financial, and so I do not keep up on current fluctuations in market value, as a good financial appraiser must. And please keep in mind, when commenting, that my approach to icons is art historical rather than “religious.”
I always enjoy hearing from readers of this site, whether those asking for identification of an icon or those simply commenting on a particular posting or on the site in general. To comment or contact me, just click on the “Leave a Reply” link at the bottom of any posted article.
