We are pleased to provide auction estimates for items that are of a type and value typically sold by Strauss & Co.
Please note that any estimates provided are based upon the photo(s) supplied and are subject to re-evaluation upon seeing the work "in the flesh".
We would place a reserve on the pieces to protect you, this is usually between 10% and 20% below the low estimate (or, at best, the low estimate). It is not our practice to place a reserve higher than the low estimate.
If selected for a live auction, we will charge a 12% selling commission for anything selling at the hammer price over R10 000 and 15% at R10 000 and below. Please note that VAT is charged on the commission only.
The commission charged covers cataloguing and illustration costs and for the duration of your artwork being in our care, the piece will be insured. Any other costs such as restoration or framing will be for your direct account regardless of whether the item sells or not.
