Bid increments

The bid increments correspond to the usual rhythm of a sale and are constituted according to a scale of bid amounts.


If the auction house has no custom bid increments, the applicable bid increments are as follows:


up to €19: €5,
from €20 to €199: €10,
from €200 to €499: €50,
from €500 to €999: €100,
from €1,000 to €4,999: €200,
from €5,000 to €9,999: €500,
from €10,000 to €19,999: €1,000,
from €20,000 to €49,999: €2,000,
from €50,000 to €99,999: €5,000, €100,000
and above: €10,000.

On the day of the sale, in order to adapt to the rhythm of bids that are often unpredictable, the auction house will not be able to systematically respect the thresholds set at the start and will have to adapt to bids coming from the room, the telephone or the internet.
