Thursday, 30 November - Sunday, 10 December 2023

Our December sale is now online. It goes live at 5pm on Thursday November 30 and runs for 10 days, finishing at 6pm on Sunday December 10. It covers 450 years of art and historical material along with a selection of 19th and early 20th Century photographs. We have grouped all entries into one of seven categories as under: Watercolours Oil paintings Acrylic paintings Works on paper Photographs Print & Graphics (all types*) Other types of art * Prints include Screen prints, Engravings, Etchings, Woodcuts, Silkscreen, Canvas prints, Giclee prints, Lithoprints (19th & 20th Cent.) This sale includes a fine selection of 19th Century engravings, matted and ready for framing with modest estimates, lower than international prices. The sale is DIVIDED into two parts: Part 1: Lots 001-300 consist of all NEW entries which have not been seen at auction before and follow the grouping order above – Watercolours, Oil paintings, Acrylic paintings, etc. Part 2: Lots 301-967 consist of stock that has previously been offered and failed to sell. Again, these items follow the same order - Watercolours, Oil paintings, Acrylic paintings, etc. A recently added feature to our sales is that when you click on "View Catalogue" you will see a new heading called CATEGORIES, next to the WISH LIST heading. Click on this, and all entries will automatically be grouped into their categories. You can also click on the various categories which are listed under the scroll bar. BIDDING: If you bid on an item and you get the response RESERVE NOT MET you can continue to increase your bid by simply clicking on the bid button until you reach the reserve. Once you see the message RESERVE MET you can stop bidding knowing that you will have won the item unless you are outbid by someone else. When this happens you will be automatically sent an email. In the closing minutes of the sale you should monitor the sale online as an email notification may not reach you in time. DELIVERY: Finally, a word on delivery for those who are new to our site. If you are not able to collect your purchases we continue to offer an inhouse packing/courier service on most small to medium sized artworks. Large or valuable works will need professional packing. Call for details. We can also deliver to a number of North Island towns at attractive rates without the need for special packing. So long as you are able to collect from me in Central Auckland (Ponsonby Road, early afternoon) I can bring your purchases with me to Auckland on Wednesday December 13 and to Hutt Valley/Wellington on Monday/Tuesday December 18/19. Prices for this service are invariably cheaper than courier. I wish you successful bidding. Best regards, Henry Newrick Director
