If you can’t stay for the auction, you can still participate by submitting an absentee or a telephone bid using the form below.
Absentee Bids: You tell us the item(s) you’d like to bid on and how much you’ll pay maximum. We’ll bid for you up to the amount you submit. If it sells for less than your bid, you’ll get it for that price. The minimum absentee bid is $50/item, for Fine Estate Auctions/Special Collections Auctions. Please note: Absentee bids must follow our Bid Increments.
Telephone Bidding: We will call you during the auction you when your item comes up and bid with you live. The minimum opening telephone bid is $300/item for Fine Estate Auctions/Special Collection Auctions.
