RESSLER KUNST AUKTIONEN GMBH is specialised in contemporary art. Our expertise is particularly strong in the fields of Austrian contemporary art and classical modernism.
Selling at the auction house is very easy:
Send us photographs of your pieces of art (including the measurements) via email to email@example.com
Or you are bringing your piece of art to us – we are at your service from Monday to Friday from 11 to 6 p.m.
After the auction you will receive an accounting. It is based on the highest bid, i.e. the sum for which the sale was awarded at the auction. The seller’s provision, photography reproduction costs and potential other costs agreed upon, e.g. for transportation, will be deducted from this sum.
The seller’s provision for objects of art is calculated at 10% for starting bids from € 10,000 on; between € 5,000 and € 10,000 15%, and for starting bids below that 20%. In cases of very high-value objects of art, the seller’s provision is negotiable.
The photography reproduction costs are € 500 for a double page, € 300 for a full page and € 200 for a half page. We will not have smaller illustrations in our catalogues, since we are convinced that your object of art must be given the appropriate chance to attract the attention of potential bidders.
We will bear the costs of insurance from delivery to sale. If your object of art remains unsold, you are responsible for picking it up – after the end of the subsequent online auction. In any case, your object of art will be uninsured from the 8th day after the auction onwards.
An alternative to an auction is selling objects of art by way of a private sale, i.e. a direct sale among private parties. Your object of art will not be offered as part of an auction, but only to a circle of especially selected customers. This ensures a maximum level of discretion. Nobody will know that you are selling anything.
In this case, we will offer a reputable appraisal of the price of your object of art, agree upon a fixed price and offer your object of art to only a few, select collectors.
