UKRAINE FINE ART - Live Online Auction



Our technology will place your bids at the next available increment to keep you in the lead, but only up to your max price and never any further.
If another bidder has a max bid higher than yours, this would also cause the bidding to jump up to your max bid.
If the bidding passes your maximum amount, then you may miss out on winning the item.
However, if part of a competitive bidding or timed auction, we'll email you to let you know so you can increase your max bid if you wish.
We strongly suggest you leave proxy bids before the live session in the event either side experiences internet problems during the live auction.
