We accept items of a quality and value suitable for Strauss Online auctions. Please feel free to use our online auction estimate service or contact one of our specialists directly for a complimentary valuation.
Pre-sale estimates are based upon the current market prices achieved at auction for comparable property, taking into consideration the sale history for the artist, the subject matter, quality of execution, current market conditions, condition, rarity, provenance, as well as our considered opinion.
Lots may be subject to a reserve which is a confidential figure between Strauss & Co. and the seller, below which a lot will not be sold. The reserve for Online Auctions is calculated at the low estimate and may not exceed the low estimate.
Strauss & Co. charges a commission to the seller calculated at 15% on the final hammer price.
VAT is payable on the commission only, at the applicable rate.
Payment will be made to the seller 30 days after the date of the sale. Alternatively, should Strauss & Co. not have received payment from the buyer within this time, payment to sellers will be made within 7 days of Strauss & Co.’s receipt of full payment, as per our conditions of business.
Please make sure that your correct banking details are submitted.
All unsold lots are to be collected from Strauss & Co. within 14 days after the date of the sale, at the seller’s expense, unless alternative arrangements are made with Strauss & Co. regarding re-offering said lot(s) or collection/delivery thereof.
Goods consigned to Strauss Online sales via courier or transporter must be pre-paid by the consignor.
