Authenticating a Lincoln Townley Artwork
The Certificate of Authenticity system provided by Klein Editions for Lincoln Townley artworks is designed to give you the utmost security and reassurance that you are purchasing a genuine limited edition work of art – reducing the risk of forgery and ensuring that you are buying from an authorised Lincoln Townley art dealer.
Each certificate is manufactured by Hahnemühle in Germany, and made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialised numbered hologram is added. A second, identically numbered, paired hologram is then applied to the reverse side of the artwork. Both certificate and print are signed by the artist, and stamped with Townley’s and Klein Edition’s embossing stamp. Each hologram serial number is recorded with the date of production, sale date and original buyer, ensuring that a work can always be traced back to the authorised source.
Our combination of certificate and hologram assures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art.
We are able to authenticate older Townley works and issue retrospective Certificates of Authenticity. If you have a query relating to the authenticity of an artwork, please submit an enquiry here.
