How to buy
All of our auctions are accompanied by a fully illustrated online catalogue which is available around 10 days prior to the sale on the-saleroom.com. For the majority of sales, customers are invited to preview the lots on the day prior to the sale.
If customers are unable to attend the sale, we offer live online bidding through the-saleroom.com whereby bids can be placed in real time. Alternatively, a commission bid can be left with the appropriate saleroom. To download the form, please click here.
