is called out. If there is any doubt about the hammer price or
buyer, please draw this to the attention of the auctioneer

1. If you are unable to attend you may bid before the sale, using
the form provided. Enter the maximum you are prepared to
offer for each lot and the auctioneer will represent you as if you
are personally attending the sale. Lots are knocked down at one
step above the next highest bid, and not necessarily at your
highest bid. Example: your bid is €1,000 and next highest bid is
€800 – the hammer price is €850.
2. LIMIT BIDDING: Absentee bidders may limit their total purchases
to a set amount by entering their limit on the bidding form. This
is especially useful for bidders wishing to cover as many lots as
possible while setting a maximum amount to spend.
3. “OR” BIDDING: Absentee bidders who wish to bid on two or
more lots, but only wish to purchase one, may do so by entering
“OR” between the bids – the lots will be bid on in catalogue
4. EQUAL BIDS: In the event of equal bids being received for the
same lot the first received will be given preference. If the
instruction “break ties” is entered on the bid form the auctioneer
will increase the bid by one step in the event of equal bids being
received or in the event of a tie with a room bidder.
5. “BUY” BIDS: Unless otherwise instructed bids of “Buy” or “Buy at
Best” shall be taken to indicate bids of up to three times the
stated higher estimate in the catalogue.
6. LIVE INTERNET BIDDING AT NO EXTRA CHARGE: You may watch
and/or bid live with video and audio link to the saleroom on our
at no extra charge.

bid may be requested.
