Unsold lots from international auctions houses now accessible
Did you know that statistically, 30% of lots offered for sale at auctions find no purchasers?
This is where the Auction After Sale site comes in. Founded in 2015 by Jean-Baptiste Fabre, an art broker who worked at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Drouot, this platform offers a second chance to unsold lots, and generates many opportunities for art lovers and collectors.
” I am determined to set up a strong community that develops an interest in unsold lots, including individuals as well as art professionals. “
☛ Interview with Jean-Baptiste Fabre (in French)
The day after the auction, unsold lots are listed, referenced on the website, and available for sale during 10 days. Then all you have to do is make a bid for the work of your choice, by setting a price which is submitted to the auction house. If the auctioneer agrees on the price, the work is yours. If not, you can make a counter-proposal, or quit the sale. Auction After Sale keeps a record of your bid and will send you an alert when a similar item will be available for immediate purchase on the site.
Auction After Sale is a smart service, targeting art lovers, collectors, art dealers or institutions. Really worth a try!
