This is an auction which is different to all other specialist sales taking place in October in that all the instruments and bows belong to Amberviolins.
When instruments are sold by us they are no longer traceable to this website. After a few days, the web pages are deleted and can not be found by search engines. This means that if you are buying to stock a business, your customer will not see that the instrument was sold by us and for how much.
We take a view that the total value of what we have sold is what matters, not each individual lot, so there will be some which sell at low prices! This time there will be a buyers premium of 20% in line with other auction houses, this is to make price comparisons between auctions easier. There is no tax added to the buyers premium which is treated as part of the total selling price for tax purposes.
Public viewing at the Westbury Hotel, Mayfair on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th. The catalogue will be online from Saturday 11th October with bidding open from 20th October.
