and LIVE TELEPHONE BIDDING. We recognize that many
bidders will be unable to travel to Pennsylvania or New
England to attend the actual Auction. Therefore we encourage
Absentee and Telephone Bidding. After previewing Steps #1-#2-#3
above, we invite you to call us for a Formal Condition Report
on any lots that may interest you. Should you decide to
submit an Absentee Bid, we will bid for you in front
of the entire Auction Room just as if you were there.
Sometimes you don't win the item sometimes you do and
frequently at amounts far below your maximum bid. Either
way we promise that your bids will be executed in an honest
and forthright manner. We accept Absentee Bids on nearly
any lot in the sale; Live Telephone Bidding is usually reserved
for the top lots in the Auction.
We Are Always Buying Pictures, Prints,
Pastels & Wallace Nutting Furniture
we typically recommend the Auction Method of Selling,
we recognize that some people prefer to avoid the delays,
commissions, and uncertainties associated with selling
at Auction. In situations such as this we can offer you
1) PRE-AUCTION ESTIMATE: Upon reviewing your actual items
(sorry, no photographs, we must see the actual items),
we can provide you with a Pre-Auction estimated range
that your item(s) might achieve if sold at one of our
Catalog Auctions. If you select the Auction Option we
will complete an Auction Contract and place your consignment
in our next Auction.
2) FIRM OUTRIGHT SALE OFFER: If you request this option
we can tell you what your item(s) are worth to us privately.
We tell you up front that we are dealers that we
are buying for re-sale and that we must buy at a
price that allows us to make a fair profit but we
promise to make you a fair market offer. If you select
this option we will pay you then and there. And you can
avoid the delays, commissions, and uncertainties associated
with selling at Auction.
3) ITEMS RETURNED TO YOU: If you don't like either number
you can take your items home with you, or we will be happy
to mail them back to you at your expense.
