At Fontaine’s we aspire to make buying at auction as entertaining and straightforward as possible. We offer several ways to participate, whether you are attending the auction in person or bidding from the other side of the world.
You can register in person when you arrive at the sale.
On the day of the sale, a representative from Fontaine’s will call you three to five lots before your indicated lot and will bid with you over the phone live in the auction room.
Fontaine’s utilizes the services of four live online platforms. The platforms are Fontaine’s Live, LiveAuctioneers, Invaluable, and eBay; within these sites, you can bid live, watch, and leave absentee bids.
Fontaine’s will provide you with easy to complete bid forms, which must be submitted by 5 P.M. the day before the scheduled auction. They can be sent by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to 413.442.1550, or in person at Fontaine’s Auction Gallery.
