Consignment Process

Initial Contact and Evaluation:

  • Potential Consignors may fill in the request form for an auction estimate. After an evaluation is complete, items will be deemed either fit or unfit within their specialty and if they meet their criteria for consignment.

Agreement and Contract:

  • If items are deemed acceptable for consignment, we will provide a consignment agreement outlining terms and conditions.
  • This agreement covers aspects such as commission rates (the percentage of the sale price retained by the auction house), reserve prices (if any), insurance, duration of the consignment, and any further significant details.

Documentation and Authentication:

  • Consignors may need to provide documentation proving ownership and authenticity of the items (especially for high-value items or artifacts).
  • The auction house may also conduct its own authentication and verification processes to ensure the items are genuine and accurately described.

Cataloguing and Marketing:

  • Once authenticated, the items are catalogued with detailed descriptions, photographs, and estimated sale prices.
  • The auction house then promotes the upcoming auction through various marketing channels to attract potential buyers.

Auction and Bidding:

  • Items will be put up through our live online auctions, timed-online auctions or both.
  • Bidding typically opens at a specified starting price and continues until the auction closes.
