Phone bids

Can’t be there in person, but still want to experience some of the auction magic? You can also bid by telephone.

On the day of the auction, a member of our team will phone you shortly before your chosen lot appears for sale, they will then act on your behalf in the saleroom, bidding on your instruction.

We have limited availability for telephone bids so they are arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
