Auction: If bidding on your item fails to reach the reserve price at auction, it will remain unsold. We will be in touch with you with our recommendations for your unsold property, including listing it on our Buy Now channel.

Buy Now: Consignors who are in possession of their items don’t need to take actions. For items in Sotheby’s possession, the return can vary by department and a specialist will contact the consignor with next steps.
