for condition reports or more information & images
Theodore Bruce endeavours to mention any imperfections to an item and will provide condition reports on request, any absence of this information in the catalogue does not automatically imply that the lot is free from defect. Measurements are approximate & should be treated as a guide only.
Prospective buyers are encouraged to seek further information or request additional images. Please note condition reports can be amended during the pre-sale period, so we strongly suggest any interested bidders check the published condition report available on the website before the auction commences.
HOW TO BID
Our Timed Bid Auctions are usually published on line for 7 to 21 days.
Each lot closes sequentially in lot order 60 SECONDS after the previous lot. If a bid is placed within the last five minutes prior to closing then the bidding time will be extended for that lot by 5 minutes, bidding extensions will go for a maximum of two hours.
You can place individual bids at anytime up until the close of a lot.
You can also place a maximum bid in the system for any lot. The system will only bid on your behalf if another bid is placed on that lot, e.g. say lot 2 has a bid of $20 already, you leave a maximum bid of $100, this system will execute your bid and you will be the high bidder at $25, if another bid is place for $50 then your next bid would be executed at $55 and so on. If another bid of $100 is place it will take you bid as it was placed first, if your bid is exceeded you will get a notification that you have been outbid. Please note bids can only be removed 2 hours before the start of the auction, you will need to log into your account using the person icon in the top right corner of your screen, click on My Bids and you will be able to cancel or adjust the amount of your bid. Theodore Bruce is unable to cancel or adjust a bid on your behalf.
Invoices for each auction are emailed to successful bidders shortly after the close of the last lot in the auction.
