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 bids competitively.
