What does 888 Auctions sell privately?
888 Auctions offers private sales in all the categories in which we also conduct our Asian Works of Art auctions. These include traditional Chinese watercolour paintings, jadeite, jade, Tianhuang and shoushan stone carvings, jewellery, ceramics, bronzes, horn carvings, furniture, wood, textiles, coins, snuff bottles and other rare collectibles.

How do you determine whether a private sale or an auction is the most suitable method for selling my property?
After 888 Auctions specialists examine and appraise your property, they will assess the best method for offering your work and achieving your goals. All private sale enquiries are treated with the utmost privacy and confidentiality. Switching your property from private sales to auction sales is a seamless transition. The flexibility in offering your items through private sales or auction sales is as easy as your providing us with a written consent.

How will you find a buyer for my property?
When you consign a work to 888 Auctions for private sale, we will present you with an agreement outlining our exclusive right to offer the work for a specified period of time. 888 Auctions will then begin to offer your property in our online gallery.
