How to buy?
The calendar and lists of forthcoming auctions are available on our website. You can also sign up to our newsletters. Prior to each auction, a pre-sale viewing session is organised to allow potential buyers to inspect the condition of the items up for bid. If you are unable to attend viewing in person, we are at your disposal to provide photographs and additional information.
Attending the auction
On the day of the auction, there is no need to pre-register, except in the case of auctions requiring a deposit.
If you are unable to attend the auction in person, you can submit an absentee bid, also known as a commission bid, i.e. your highest offer, via this website. We will then bid in your name and your best interest, as if you were there in person, up to the limit you set.
You can bid in real time, by phone or online via our live bidding platform. The item is sold to the highest bidder, who takes ownership of it and responsibility for it.
The successful bidder pays the hammer price plus a buyer's premium (see our terms and conditions of sale).
Payment can be made by credit or debit card, cash (up to €1000 including premium), cheque or bank transfer.
If you require your purchased goods to be shipped, either in France or abroad, we will advise you on the best option according to the type of items, how fragile they are and how feasible shipping is. Please bear in mind that buyers assume full responsibility for the shipping of lots won at auction.
Sold lots can be stored free of charge for up to two weeks after the auction. Beyond this period, handling and storage fees will be charged.
