Preview, condition report and online catalogue

In the week prior to the date of each auction, you may closely inspect and examine all objects to be offered for sale at our premises. Please note our pre-auction viewing times. If you have any questions, we will be happy to advise you.

If you wish, we will also be happy to report on the condition of individual items by telephone, fax or email. Any condition report represents the opinion of our experts and cannot be claimed as a warranted item (see auction conditions).
As a new customer, we ask you to send us a copy of your photo ID (identity card / passport) and the first-time bidder form for your initial registration.
Choose how you would like to participate in our auctions. We offer the following options:

In-room bidder

You can follow the action directly in the auction room. After registering on site, you will receive a number with which you can bid in the auction room.

Please note that due to Covid-19, we cannot allow room bidding at the moment, for the protection of our customers and staff.

Bidding by telephone

For reserve prices from €250.00, you can bid by telephone. We will be happy to call you during the auction to enable you to bid ‘live’ on a lot number. To register for telephone bidding, please use our bidding form.

Written bids

When bidding in writing, you may submit maximum bids for the items of your choice by fax, mail, email or in person. Please use our bidding form for this purpose. The auctioneer will bid for you during the auction according to your bids.

LIVE bidder

As a LIVE bidder, you participate directly in the auction from your computer and bid conveniently at the touch of a button. To participate in LIVE bidding, you must register in advance with a platform. This is possible at Lot-tissimo, the saleroom, Invaluable, or Drouot. You will then receive a bidder number and be admitted to the auction.


Use of the online service will increase the buyer’s premium by 3–5%, depending on the platform used. For details, please refer to the terms and conditions of the respective platform.
