I agree that I am bound by the “Conditions of Sale” which are published in this sales catalogue and govern all purchases that I make at this auction.
You may make arrangements with Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc. to Absentee Bid, if you are unable to attend the sale. You may complete this form to leave bids, and we will bid on your behalf. The amount is the top dollar amount for each individual lot not including a 25% buyer’s premium. By placing this Absentee Bid, prospective purchasers consent and agree to the Conditions of Sale. Absentee bidding is a convenience offered to Charlton Hall Gallery’s customers and while we make every effort to execute your instructions regarding your Absentee Bid, Charlton Hall Galleries is not liable or responsible for any errors or failure to execute such instructions.
We do not accept bids for less than half of the low estimate. Leaving an absentee or phone bid on a lot indicates your willingness to open the bidding up to one half the printed low estimate, and gives the auctioneer the authority to open the bidding at that level.
We require all Absentee Bid customers to provide Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc. with a bank reference letter along with your bid form. You must provide a copy of your government-issued ID and credit card to secure your submitted bids. Charlton Hall Galleries will make every effort to bid on your behalf. If in the instance there are two bids at the same top dollar amount, the bid received first will take precedence. Bidding during a Charlton Hall Galleries auction may occur very rapidly; therefore, a bid that is received during the auction will be executed at the discretion of the auctioneer, and if we are able to process the bid, we will place it for you. We will only contact you after the sale if you are the successful bidder.
