We own duplicates of some prints and posters. For example, the French travel poster that I have posted for sale on our site is one of two that we own. Oftentimes Richard and I would forget whether or not we had a particular piece. If we came upon an antique or vintage print or poster and loved it, we bought it. Hence the duplicates, and sometimes triplicates. Another reason to sell an original from our collection would be to tighten up our own categories. The limited edition print by the renowned marine artist, John Stobart that I have up for sale too, is a good example. Having only one piece by this artist made it an easy decision to sell it. This will allow someone else to enjoy it and allow us use the proceeds to add to one of our already established categories. There can be other reasons too of course, but I'd say these are the two main reasons.
