Please note our estimates are based largely on the opinion of the cataloguer and take into account any reserves at that time. As they are often prepared well in advance of the sale on few occasions they may be subject to change.

Regarding bids lodged via internet auction sites,

Regarding bidding via bids received via this system attract a charge of 4.95% in addition to the Wallis and Wallis buyer’s premium of 20%. Both these charges attract VAT at the current rate. Including VAT, all bids received through them will therefore attract a total charge of 29.94% on the hammer price.
Bids received via attract a charge of 3% in addition to the Wallis and Wallis buyers premium of 20%, again both subject to VAT. Including VAT, all bids through EasyLive will be subject to 27.6% on the hammer price. However EasyLive offer the alternative of paying an advance registration fee to them of £3 including VAT per auction instead of their additional 3% commission.
We have adopted the EasyLive system to operate our sales, and, if lots are purchased through, it should be noted that we do not receive the purchaser’s details until after the sale period has concluded, consequently we are unable to clear purchases as promptly as those made through EasyLive.
We still accept bids via Royal Mail, e-mail, or telephone and, in these cases,  the 20% buyers premium (with VAT on the premium only) will be added to the hammer price.
