April 2017 Auction
April 15, 2017
BERTOIA BASICS ONLINE
Sale totals $101,000
The Bertoia Basics auctions offer collectors at all levels additional ways to buy fine toys, trains, banks and doorstops using real-time Internet and absentee-bidding methods.
Each Bertoia Basics auction is a one-day event in which registered bidders can participate either by absentee or live-online in an otherwise traditionally structured auction. Absentee bids are accepted anytime before the auction, either by calling Bertoia’s gallery or placing the bid online with one of our two online catalogs. On auction day, lots are introduced for real-time online bidding in consecutive numerical order, exactly as though they were being presented to a live gallery audience. Auctioneer Michael Bertoia oversees each Bertoia Basics auction from start to finish and places all absentee bids competitively.
In lieu of a published catalog, a free digital version is available to view on the computer and, if desired, downloaded and printed out.
These auctions will provide customers another opportunity to add to their collections year round and be assured they will still receive the same level of quality service Bertoia Auctions is known for.
