How to register and bid for any Lots

The Auction is divided into two sections: Online catalogue and the Super Lots. To bid in both auctions, you will need to register on the Bonhams’ website by clicking here. Please do note that the Super Lots are going to be taken off line 48 hours before the sale and further bidding will be reserved live only for those bidders who are attending the Gala Auction and Dinner at Bonhams on 16 November 2017. After that, anyone wishing to bid who is not attending the sale will need to appoint a proxy, who is at the dinner, to bid on their behalf.
