HOW TO SELL

CONTRACT

If you are interested in consigning property to Antiquorum, we invite you to contact one of our experts to examine and valuate the goods . If you are unable to visit one of our offices, you can mail, fax or e-mail a photograph of the property with any pertinent information to one of our experts for examination. If you decide to sell your property through Antiquorum, a contract will be drawn up which describes the lot(s) and establishes reserve(s), as well as sets forth terms and fees for services we provide. The reserve is a minimum price for the seller, which is determined in mutual agreement between the seller and Antiquorum. A lot cannot be sold at auction under that price.

For traditional auctions:
• seller’s commissions are charged on sold lots only: 15% for lots sold up to a value of SFr 10’000 (and for lots sold in thematic auctions); 10% for lots sold for SFr 10’001 and above.
• Antiquorum also charges an insurance premium of 1% on the final hammer price for each lot sold or on the basis of the reserve for unsold lots. If the seller wishes to use his/her own insurance coverage, a disclaimer letter must be provided to Antiquorum.
• A fee for catalogue photography will also be applied, and laboratory certification, repair and restoration fees may be incurred where applicable.

SPECIAL FINANCING

Under certain circumstances, Antiquorum may advance funds to a seller against the goods consigned for sale. For information, contact an Antiquorum expert or agent.
