|Basic Information and Consigning|
The Daguerreian Society holds a 19th-century Photography Auction in conjunction with its Annual Conference. This year's auction will be on the evening of Saturday, October 28th, 2017, immediately following the banquet dinner. This year marks the second time that bidders will be able to use the Internet to bid live against the floor bidders. There is also always an exciting silent auction during the conference program. Look for more details on the auction itself under the auction tab in September about a month prior to the auction.
CONSIGNMENTS. Quality consignments are welcomed. We are especially looking for consignments that will realize a hammer price of $2,500 or more.
DONATIONS. All donations are welcome. Donations with a value of $500 or more will be placed in the live auction. All other donations will be acknowledged and will be placed in the silent auction.
We encourage photographic-related material in all formats, and from all time periods, particularly items relating to 19th-century photography and its processes. Often contemporary art photographs that use antiquarian processes are included in the auction.
TERMS FOR CONSIGNMENTS: We are very selective regarding consignments, to ensure a quality auction and reasonable estimates. Our purpose is to raise needed money for the Society and provide entertainment and quality images for its membership. Please send scans and/or descriptions of proposed consignments to Greg French at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-617-522-3610.
SELLER'S COMMISSION OF 10%. Likewise, this benefits The Daguerreian Society and is in line with the norm.
