How to sell?
Your item is valued
Once the estimate has been agreed, a consignment order is signed: a minimum price, known as the “reserve price”, may be set.
We sell your item in your name and on your behalf during a public auction. To secure the highest bid, the item is presented at an appropriate auction. We do our utmost to ensure your item gleans national and international visibility: catalogues distributed to a target group, website promoted via global platforms, local, national and international specialised press...
If your item is sold, a commission charge is taken, as set out in the terms of the consignment order. If the item remains unsold, it may be presented at a future sale at an agreed reduced reserve or simply be collected by the seller.
Why sell at a public auction?
In the best interests of the seller, public auctions generate competitive bidding between potential buyers, in an objective and transparent manner, to secure the highest price.
