Sotheby's Australia

Request an Estimate

Satisfy Your Curiosity

Wondering how much your fine art, decorative object or heirloom jewellery might yield at a Sotheby’s Australia auction? Your first step is securing a preliminary auction estimate at no charge.  Complimentary estimates will be provided for each item that meets our minimum consignment value. Our specialists will provide the most accurate estimate based upon your submitted information, but estimates are subject to change based on the specialist’s first-hand inspection.

Getting Started Is Easy
Simply follow the link to our Auction Appraisal Form

  • Share background information. Include dimensions, history of ownership and any documentation (previous valuations, certificates or receipts.)
  • Share your images. Please provide at least two clear colour photographs of your item.  Include front and back views, any signatures, maker’s marks or areas of damage.
  • Submit your request online.  We will reply in the coming weeks.

Alternatively email one of our offices with details of the item, along with a photograph of your property. 

If you decide to offer your property at auction, we will draw up a seller’s contract for you, which includes the reserve price as well as details about Sotheby’s Australia’s commissions.  If your property is not appropriate for sale at auction, we will recommend the auction and selling location where your property is likely to achieve the highest price.
