as the Auctioneer may require. If the
buyer fails to do so, the lot may at the

any re-sale of the lot, together with the
charges and expenses in respect of both
sales, and together with interest at 2%
above Barclays Bank PLC Base Rate upon
the price of any lot which has not been
paid for within 48 hours of the sale, and
any money deposited in part payment
shall be held by the Auctioneers on
account of any liability of the defaulter to
them or to the seller. The Auctioneers are
unable to accept payment from
successful bidders other than in cash or
by the bidder’s own cheque. Cheques
drawn by third parties, whether in the
Auctioneer’s favour or requiring
endorsement, cannot be accepted.

11. Purchase Price. The purchaser shall pay
the hammer price together with a
premium of 19.5% of the hammer price
(adjusted for VAT as necessary). The
premium at the appropriate rate is
payable by all purchasers. The amount
invoiced will be premium plus VAT (where
VAT is chargeable) but this VAT will not
normally be recoverable by the buyer. All
payments made by credit card wil incur a
1.5% surcharge on the total invoice value.
This will be applied at the point of
payment and an updated invoice will be
issued to the buyer along with payment
receipt. The vendor authorises the
Auctioneer to deduct commission and
expenses at the stated rates from the
hammer price and acknowledges the
Auctioneer’s right to retain the premium
payable by the purchaser.



We will be pleased to execute bids on behalf
of intending buyers, and no charge is made
for this service. Lots will be purchased as
cheaply as permitted by other bids and
reserves. Bids must be submitted to the
Commissions Department at least half an

condition that they are at the sender’s risk,

Droit de Suite Royalty Charges
From 1st January 2012 all UK art market
professionals (which includes, but is not
limited to: auctioneers, dealers, galleries,
agents and other intermediaries) are required
to collect a royalty payment for all works of
art that have been produced by living artists
and works by artists who have died within the
last 70 years (following the existing term of
copyright). This is an extension of the
previous legislation.
Please note that payment of a royalty is not
required in every case and will only be
collected when the hammer price equals or
exceeds the UK sterling equivalent of 1,000
The threshold level is for estimation purposes
only, it is entirely the responsibility of the
buyer to acquaint himself with the actual
EURO to UK Sterling exchange rate on the
day of the sale in this regard, and the
auctioneer accepts no responsibility
whatsoever if the qualifying rate is different
to the rate indicated. The actual qualifying
threshold will be calculated by the Artist's
Resale Right Service Hub based on the
European Central Bank reference rate
published at 2.15pm on the day of the sale,
and can be found on
All items in this catalogue that are marked
with ‘?’ are potentially qualifying items, and
the royalty charge will be applied if the
hammer price achieved is more than the UK
sterling equivalent of EURO 1,000. The royalty
charge will be added to all relevant invoices,
and must be paid before items can be
cleared. All royalty charges are paid to the
Design and Artists Copyright Society (‘DACS’),
no handling costs or additional fees with
respect to these charges will be retained by
the auctioneer.
The royalty charge that will be applied to
qualifying items which achieve a hammer
price of more than the UK sterling equivalent
of EURO 1,000, but less than the UK sterling
equivalent of EURO 50,000 is 4%. For
qualifying items that sell for more than the UK
sterling equivalent of EURO 50,000 a sliding
scale of royalty charges will apply - for a
complete list of the royalty charges and
threshold levels, please see There is no VAT payable on
this royalty charge.
