If instructed, Berman's will execute bids and advise prospective purchasers. This service is free. Lots will always be bought as cheaply as is allowed by such other bids and reserves are on our books or bids executed in competition from the audience. Please note: Berman's offers this service as a convenience to its clients who are unable to attend the sale and will not be held responsible for error or failure to execute bids.
Commission bids, when placed by telephone, are accepted only at the sender's risk, and must be confirmed by letter or telegram.
Be sure to carefully note lot numbers and descriptions.
Please bid as early as possible. In the event of identical bids, the earliest will take precedence.
"Buy" bids are not accepted. The limit you leave should be the amount to which you would bid if you were to attend the sale.
In order to avoid delay in clearing purchases, buyers unknown to us are advised to make arrangements before the sale for payment or for references to be supplied. Successful bidders will be notified and invoiced immediately.
Unsuccessful bidders will not be specifically notified.
Your bid is for the hammer price; a premium of 21% will be added to the hammer price of each lot sold and is payable by you in addition thereto.
