2.     Pre-auction bids

As from the date of publication of the online catalogue until 10:00 am DST (11:00 am Italian time) on Friday 16 September it will be possible to:

-       start placing bids on our website www.bertolamifineart.com, or on the partner portals as listed in point a of paragraph 1

-       submit written absentee bids as described in point c of paragraph 1.


In the event of:

a.     One single pre-auction bid on a lot


In the absence of bids during the auction, the lot will be awarded at the starting bid even if the sole bid received is higher (the amount of the pre-auction bid indicates the maximum bid the bidder is willing to place.


Example: Starting bid £ 1,000 – Single pre-sale bid £ 1,500 – Award at £ 1,000

b.     Multiple pre-auction bids of the same amount on the same lot


If no bids are raised during the auction, the lot will be awarded to the earlier bidder.

c.      Multiple pre-auction bids of different amounts on the same lot


If there are no bids during the auction, the lot will be awarded to the highest bidder. The hammer price is calculated by adding to the amount of the next lowest bid an increment set out in the table below.


Example: customer A bid £ 1,270 - customer B bid £ 1,800. Customer B does not win at the award price of £ 1,800 but at £ 1,370. In other words, the automatic increase of £ 100 provided for in the table is applied to the amount of the next lowest bid when the bids are within the £ 1,000-1,999 bracket.
