Telephone Bid Form

If you can’t be present, it’s still possible to bid by phone. Whether you are interested in fine arts, furniture and decorative arts, Asian arts, jewelry, silver, gold, automobiles, antiquities, ephemera or more, just register using the form below and press the SUBMIT button.

If you do not have a purchase history with Clars, you will be required to leave a refundable deposit to secure a phone line.  If you are not the high bidder your deposit will be returned within 24 hours of the sale date.

NOTE THAT ALL PHONE BIDS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 5PM PACIFIC TIME THE DAY BEFORE THE AUCTION IN ORDER TO BE ACCEPTED

When you hit SUBMIT, you agree to the following terms:

I agree that all phone bids will open at a minimum of $500 and understand that my phone bidding
privileges will be revoked if I do not bid at that amount.

I have read, understand and agree to Clars Auction Gallery’s Conditions of Sale. All bids will be treated as offers subject to the Conditions of Sale.

I understand that there is an 19% additional charge (Buyer’s Premium) added to the Hammer Price on all items. Should the Hammer Price be above one hundred fifty thousand dollars ($150,000), the Buyer’s Premium on the incremental amount above one hundred fifty thousand is reduced to 10%. Sales tax will also be charged unless you have a valid resale license on file with us, or arrange to have the item shipped out of California.
