Consignments

We offer you an international forum for selling your antiques, art and design objects. For every auction we design high-quality catalogues with art historically proved catalogue texts and detailed descriptions of every object. The whole auction catalogue is available on our homepage as well as on other international websites.

During the preview every object to be called will be presented at the best in our facilities. Our auction dates in spring and autumn are oriented towards the main art fairs in Cologne and its surrounding area to address a large number of national and international customers. Consignments have to be done 8 weeks due to the auction date. Current information on this topic is always available on our website.

Estimations

We would very much like to estimate the objects you consider to consign at no charge and without commitment. For the different thematic focuses of our house we have our experts Jürgen Schops and Thomas Turowski with substantial knowledge and wide experience available.

If requested you can arrange an appointment for appraisal at Kunst & Design Auktionshaus Schops Turowski. Or feel free to send us a photo with a short description (material, measurements, brands/signatures (if available) and state of the object). We will contact you afterwards as soon as possible.

Furthermore, we can also arrange a visit at your premises if requested. The estimation of an object is always depending on the current market value.

If you are not able to deliver your objects to us or the objects can’t be delivered we can organize the transport for you if requested. After settling a limit price with you will receive an auction assignment which contains along with our general business conditions detailed descriptions about picture and commission costs. Delivered objects are insured beginning at the date of delivery. Costs thereby incurred amount to 1 % of the limit price (only occur after selling).

Unsold objects remain in the post auction sale three weeks after each auction.

Afterwards the deliverer is asked to recollect the unsold objects within 14 days. If the unsold objects are not recollected within 14 days we reserve the right to bill an additional stock fee.

Conditions for Consignments

The auctioneer is instructed to sell the items submitted - which are in the unrestricted ownership of the Client - by public and voluntary auction.

The auction shall be conducted on behalf of and for the account of a third party.

Clearing occurs within four weeks after the auction preconditioned to the buyer'spayment.

In case the object remains unsold the customer is not charged any fees.

Until the auction is put up the orderer is bound to the contract. If the order is withdrawn partly or wholly a fee of 25 % plus valid VAT will be charged. The orderer is entitled to prove that no or a significantly less loss or harm has arisen.

The deliverer is liable to assured object descriptions. A fault which is not recognized during the receipt of the object results in reduction of the limit price or denial of the object.

The auction is based on the previous mentioned auction conditions. The auctioneer cannot be made liable for not gathered purchase money. The proportionate insurance commission amounts to 1,5 % and is only charged in case the object is sold. An orderer who runs a business is obliged to pay the VAT caused by made transactions by himself.
