How to Sell selling auctions fine furniture

Selling

The Pedestal offers a unique and flexible approach to selling Fine Antique Furniture and Objects. With both specialist auctions and fixed price online selling our experts will guide you through the process of choosing the best option for the sale of your items. Our auctions are led by a team of approachable and experienced specialists. With a background in curating Furniture and Objects auctions for several of London’s international auction houses, the team brings with them enthusiasm, knowledge, professionalism and a network of contacts.

Auctions

Our auctions of Fine Interiors, including Silver (featuring fine furniture, works of art, early oak, carpets and silver) are held in the sumptuous surroundings of Giacomo Leoni’s Grade I listed Moor Park Mansion in Hertfordshire close to central London and with excellent facilities.

We hold auctions of Luxury Design: Handbags, Design Silver & Objects in central London.

The accompanying auction catalogues are produced to a high standard with lavish illustrations and detailed descriptions. They are available three weeks before the auction date and are distributed internationally.

Fixed Price Selling

The Pedestal’s fixed price sales provides you with access to the specialist retail market promoted through our Shop Now page, together with the market leading platform Online Galleries.

The consignment process is very similar to that for auctions where items are stored by us for the duration of the offering period. We deal with all aspects of the transaction on your behalf.

Consignment

Items consigned to The Pedestal for sale will be added to your account and you will be issued with a contract to sign and return to us. Once instructed we will enter the items into the next suitable auction or prepare the details to be uploaded to our Selling Platforms.

Collection and Delivery

We will be happy to assist in arranging transport for your items to our warehouse. We use several firms on a regular basis and we are also familiar with many of the international removal and shipping companies. We will issue a receipt for the items on collection and they will be stored in our secure warehousing facility on the Wiltshire/Oxfordshire borders.

Auction

Items to be included in our auction are moved to Moor Park Mansion for the duration of the pre-sale viewing and auction.

We will send you copies of the printed catalogue for the auction in which your property will be offered. You are most welcome to attend the viewing and the auction itself.

Payment for your items sold in our auctions will be transferred to you less our charges for commission 21 days after the sale date or 28 days later in the case of a fixed price online sale.
