Buying at Minerva Auctions is really simple and fair. Lots in auctions will be sold at the best bidders.
It will be added a commission of 25% on the hammer price until € 100.000 and a commission of 18% on higher prices. VAT is included, as current regulations.
For artists living or dead from less than 70 years, the buyer must add 4% for lots sold above 3000 € .
Each auction is preceded by a viewing at prestigious Palazzo Odescalchi (all the infos are indicated in each catalogue’s first pages).
The participation to the Auction is regulated by the conditions of sale and can be made in different ways:
Participating directly in the Saleroom, with a registration at the front desk before auction’s begin.
WRITTEN BID FORM
Sending commission bids by e-mail or fax filling the Bid Form, at least 12 hours before the beginning of the sale.
PHONE BID FORM
At the phone – always after filling the Bid Form – you’ll be called by Minerva’s staff to follow live the sale for the lots you’re interested in.
Minerva’s staff is available to suggest you the best way to participate at the Auctions and for helping you in every passage.
