How do I sell?
After viewing and researching your collection or high priced single objects, our experts are glad to provide you with a personal, multifaceted, and entirely nonbinding offer with market analysis, in which they will suggest an estimated price and a limit price for your artwork. In general, all of the estimates we offer in the context of potential consignment in one of our auctions are free.
After our experts have named an estimate and a limit price and suggested the best auction for your object, you decide whether or not consignment is an option. In the case that you do decide to consign with us, you will then receive a contract for your signature.
