Your written, email or faxed bids should be with us, please, by no later than 12.00pm, on the day of the sale. Please note that purchase prices are subject to a 10% buyers premium (plus VAT on the commission) and 5.00 for postage & packing per consignment.

Members are welcome to come to view the lots on offer at 26 Burlington Arcade, London.

The Lot is offered to the top bidder on approval, at a figure that is 50% the difference between that bid and the under bid or, where only one bid is received, at 50% the difference between that figure and the reserve. Should two or more members submit an identical top bid the Lot is offered to the member whose bid was received first, and at that price. The Lot will be sent to you for approval where you can decide to either purchase or return the Lot.

When submitting your bid(s) please make sure you clearly state the Lot number, a brief description, your bid (excluding premium), name & address and a telephone or fax number.

If you are successful we will telephone you on the day of the sale from 6pm to confirm your purchase(s) and at what price. Also to confirm that someone will be at home the following Thursday morning, to receive the lot(s), sent by guaranteed delivery.

We request payment within 48 hours of your receiving the lot(s), or their immediate return (together with a refund of the postal and packaging charges (5.00) incurred in the failed transaction) should you decide not to take up your option to purchase.
