Immediately before each auction our catalogue is issued and our exhibition opens to the public. During these four days of exhibition, our clients can come in to see the lots at auction whilst consulting the catalogue for information and price of the lots. We also place the catalogue online for our clients’ convenience.
Visiting our exhibition is free. Dates and times are previously announced online or sent by email to our clients. During the exhibition, those interested in seeing and examining the lots for auction may do so, and our staff is available to help you with any doubts or queries you may have.
There are three ways to buy at auction:
Both the Order Bid and the Telephone Bid Order are available on this page. All you have to do is complete the forms and hand them in at the Front Desk or you may email them 4 hours before the auction begins. The auctioneer will bid and try to buy the lots for the lowest price possible, never exceeding the specified maximum value.
If you have successfully bought your lot, you must then proceed to payment and collection of your piece at the end of the auction or within 5 days. The price you pay is the amount at which the auctioneer's hammer falls (the hammer price), plus a buyer's premium (a percentage of the final hammer price) 16% plus tax. You will be given an invoice made out to the name and address on your Registration Form, which may not be subsequently altered. The invoice gives a breakdown of the various costs.
Methods of Payment:
(We do not accept credit cards).
All transfers must state the relevant auction number, lot number and your bid / paddle number. If transferring from a foreign currency, the amount we receive must be the total due after currency conversion and the deduction of any bank charges.
