Terms and conditions

   Preview

There are several ways to preview the lots being offered for sale. We invite you to visit our Gallery during our published exhibition hours to examine lots in person and to discuss any questions with staff members. Printed catalogues containing descriptions and pre-sale estimates of each lot are available for purchase in advance of the sale.

Chelseauction.com provides full catalogue descriptions, thumbnail illustrations of most lots, pre-sale estimates and interactive tools for communicating questions or leaving online absentee bids. Since all lots are sold "as is", it is important to request a condition report prior to placing a bid.
