Auctions

We offer different types of sales : public or mail bid auctions. Then, depending on the merchandise and after our agreement, you can entrust us with the items for our sales to come, regardless of the specialty. A detailed deposit slip of the lot(s) is written for you upon delivery and we will then set an overall estimate for your object(s).

For important pieces, we can, through agreement, set a reserve price below which no sale is possible, to best ensure your interests. Upon delivery of the lot(s), we will fully implement our insurance to cover the risk of breakage, theft, damage, loss, etc. We will include your object in our catalog and offer on your account, your object to our international clients through a sale.

In order to fully clarify our momentary partnership, our commission, which varies on the sale and discount offered, includes all expenses inherent in the publication in the catalogue : research, descriptions, insurance, reproductions, advertising, etc, no additional fees will be claimed subsequently, other than special state taxes, if applicable.

Once the auction or sale has terminated and payment of the items is received, we will settle by check or bank transfer within 45 days.

In case the object remains unsold, that said item would be returned to you as soon as possible, at no extra cost, other than by special mention pre-established upon delivery. There are many benefits of these sales, despite the inconvenience the delay from one sale to another can bring, depending on the specialties:

  • You remain the owner of the object until its final sale.
