How it works

  • View available lots further down this page
  • To bid on any of the lots (there is no limit to the number of lots you can bid on) simply contact [email protected] stating the lot number and the amount you are wishing to bid on each lot.
  • You only have ONE chance to bid on each lot so please make it your “best and final offer”.
  • The highest bid wins.
  • If you are the highest bidder on more than one lot, we will not expect you to buy all the lots you won. Hopefully this takes the pressure off!
  • The 'reserve price' is the lowest price for which the artwork will be sold.
  • We will then confirm whether or not you have been successful and make arrangements for collection.
  • The auction will end after midnight, Thursday 12nd December
