I have been shocked to learn recently that as a result of the collapse of a “high profile” Australian auction house many of it’s vendors have not been paid for items sold and that the total outstanding to vendors is $5.8 million.

I wish to assure all clients of Theodore Bruce,  Australia’s oldest auction house (est. 1878) that we separate our client’s funds from our own trading accounts from the moment an item is sold and paid for until vendor proceeds are remitted.

Theodore Bruce,  like all other members of the Auctioneers & Valuers Association of Australia  (AAVA) maintain a Client Fund Trust Account which is audited each year prior to the renewal of our membership of AAVA.

Be confident in dealing with Theodore Bruce a trusted name in the auction industry for 140 years
