To establish market demand, a Sotheby’s specialist will evaluate your property and market demand according to such important aspects as: Artist or maker, country of origin, provenance, date of execution, materials, dimensions, rarity, subject matter or type, and condition.

An agreed-upon reserve price for each item of property will be set at or below the low estimate, namely at a level which does not exceed the low estimate. This price is strictly confidential between you and Sotheby’s, and will ensure that your property does not sell below this chosen price.
