It’s a privilege to reach that point in time where we at the gallery get to gratefully acknowledge your beyond critical participation in generating another successful auction.
The last of the weights are being given their orders to ship out and we’re running low on our environmentally-friendly “peanuts!”
As you read this, members of our small staff have, for the last few weeks been knee-deep in laying the groundwork for October’s Auction 79. But mum’s the word on that just now! In the meantime, we’ll have the farewell-to-summer brochure delivered to many of your mailboxes just to hold you over until the leaves begin to turn…
The auction has ended, but here are the details that were posted before and during the sale.
The auction was 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 be accessed via the Auction 78 playlist on our YouTube Channel. If you see something to your liking, please do not fail to place an initial bid in order to ensure that you have a position in the competitive bidding that follows in the second half of the auction. Competitive bidding concludes after each lot closes, whereby the Buy-At-Reserve stage commences offering all unsold lots at their reserve prices.
If you’re new to our auctions, or if you would just like a refresher, we recently put together a video explaining the auction process. So 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.
