'Following our successful inaugural auction in April we are now consigning for our next online sale from October 11 – 27th’, notes James Forster, Picture Specialist.
‘This new format which allows buyers to internet bid over a two week period has proved very effective for modern works’ notes James Forster, Picture Specialist. ‘The aim is to increasingly build our online market while also continuing to provide viewing in the saleroom so buyers can examine the works first hand if they wish. Showcasing auctions in the saleroom alongside online bidding will always be vital’
‘We are going to build up these online sales so they complement our traditional auctions and they will increase our ability to sell to a wider online audience, both nationally and internationally. We are also going to provide a post-sale packing and postage service’
