L.H. Selman, Ltd.’s Summer 2023, 84th Glass Paperweight Auction, featuring 360 lots, antique and modern, as well as choice paperweight-related objects will begin June 5th at 9am, with competitive bidding beginning June 20th.
The auction is fully online, hosted on our AUCTION WEBSITE. A web friendly digital e-catalog can be viewed above, while a printed copy of the catalog is for sale at PRINT-CATALOG. For those of you who have enjoyed watching spin videos of featured pieces, they can also be accessed via our YouTube Channel.
By placing an initial bid on a lot, you ensure that you have a position in the competitive bidding that follows in the second stage of the auction. Each lot closes individually, when one bidder is left, and they’ve bid above the reserve price. Competitive bidding concludes after each lot has closed, whereby the Buy-At-Reserve stage commences offering all unsold lots at their reserve prices.
Here is a video explaining the auction process. We encourage you to watch for a full explanation of our unique slow close auctions, including the different stages, rules and processes. And please call us at (312) 583-1177 if you have any questions.
We recommend that you give the catalog’s Conditions of Sale a careful examination for a full understanding of the protocols. A key for condition statements can be found in the Conditions of Sale page in the catalog. Please call the gallery with any questions about these changes or the auction format, and don’t forget, we’re always happy to send additional images, videos or condition reports upon request.
We are currently open to visit by appointment only, so please get in touch to schedule a time to see every lot in person at our gallery in Chicago, 410 S. Michigan Ave., suite 207. If you prefer to place any or all bids by phone, or have any questions, just give us a call at 1-800-538-0766.
