Auction Guidance and Bidding Help Available

I will be previewing the London auctions next week (May.17-19), and attending the auctions themselves that week. And then the Paris auctions June 4-5, and previewing them earlier. If you wish me to preview any work for you, please call my associate at 1-215-822-5662 or email us at info@vintageworks.net , or just call my mobile while I am in Paris at 011-33-661-033-387 (do not use my mobile for other calls, because I only use it while traveling in Paris).

My normal terms are 5% of the hammer price, which excludes the Buyer's premium. There is a minimum charge of $250 whether or not you are successful.

My services include a condition report, consultation on pricing and evaluation of the item and, when necessary, bidding on it for you.

You need to notify the auction house by fax that I, through my company Vintage Works, Ltd., will be bidding for you.
