Things happen fast in a hammer auction – bids come in quickly from the sale room, over the phone and online.

To be sure we didn't miss a bid, we wait for the hammer auction to be over, review all bids, and only then do we issue invoices and email the winning bidders.

This usually happens within a few days of the hammer auction.

If you're bidding in the sale room and want to take a won item with you immediately, the auction house can expedite it.

The bids shown on before we've reviewed the bidding are preliminary and may, on rare occasions, be revised.
