  Welcome to  auctionyourart   -  Art & Antiques Auctions          

 

Millions of works of art, antiques & collectibles are for sale at any given time at online sites every single day. What differentiates

 auctionyourart from other online sites is: Experience, Reputation, & International Reach. This is what makes  auctionyourart  a powerful internet platform for buying and selling art and antiques. We welcome your participation.

 

How to sell

 Please e-mail us, or call us, so that we can determine the best marketplace for your items, whether they be consigned to auction or brokered privately. Before the auction, we draw up a contract that includes an auction estimate and start bid for each item.

 

Online Auctions

Our goal is to help you achieve the highest possible price for your objects by reaching as broad an audience as possible for you. We believe that selling your property with our firm brings a far greater price than if your property were placed in a traditional auction.

Unlike many other online auctions, potential buyers view the property listed on our website for the longest exposure time possible, generating more interest and higher bids for items listed in our auctions.

 

Commission

Our commission and posting fees are competitive. Contact us for more information.

  

Settlement
Settlement is made by check 45 business days after the sale, subject to receipt of payment from the purchaser.

  

Consign with us
We are currently only accepting listings from artists with well established secondary market sales. We will consider listing works of art and antiques with a fair market value of $5,000 or more
.

 

If you would like to sell your property at auction, which meets the criteria above, please complete the Information Form and submit digital images of your items by following the instructions below. 

 

Auction Your Art Information Form

Note: Every week we receive hundreds of emails and phone calls from clients asking us to sell their property. Almost always, our first response is: send us a photograph of your item(s). The higher the quality of the photographs you provide, and the more detailed the descriptions of your property, the more accurate our auction estimates will be. Estimates and opinions of value provided are preliminary only and may change based upon first hand inspection and additional research. After we review the information that you have submitted in the Information Form, we will be in contact with you, if we feel we can be of assistance. The completed Information Form is necessary to submit before any consignment of property to auction can commence. Thank you for this opportunity to be of assistance to you.

Do's and Don'ts for Sending Images to Caroline Ashleigh Appraisers & Auctioneers

The old adage "A picture is worth a thousand words" is very true... but only when the "picture" provides useful information. Here's a list of basic do's and don'ts when sending photographs of your property to our specialists for review.

DO send photographs of the entire front and the entire back.
Close-up photographs are great, but don't forget to send us a photograph of the overall front and back of the piece. We don't want to miss anything important because it was cropped out of the photograph.

DO send a detail of the signature and any other markings.
Signatures, dates, titles, inscriptions, labels — they are all important and the detail images that you send assist us in determining the best value for your piece.

DO send photographs that are in focus and have enough light to see the item being photographed.
If you can't see what it is, then we can't either.

DON'T send photographs with large glares.
Camera flashes and direct sunlight often produce glares in photographs, especially on pieces that are framed with glass or have very shiny surfaces. In order to avoid glares, you may have to take the piece off the wall or remove the glass in order to photograph it.

DON'T email photographs larger than 5 MB each.
Larger-sized digital photographs are easier to zoom in and see the details, but too many extremely large photographs in one email completely crashes our computer system. Use a zip file if you need to send more than a dozen images. On the other hand...

DON'T email photographs too small.
Digital photographs less than 100KB are so small that we can't see the item well enough to give an opinion on its age, quality, and value.

DO be sure to include any other information that you know about the piece.
Receipts, provenance, exhibition history, and personal stories are always helpful and add distinction.
