Postage and Packing Update

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers do not provide an in-house postage & packing service

We can however recommend  the following professional shippers.

Mailboxes – 37 St. Andrews Street, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 4TP. Tel: 01603 926420 or email info@mbenorwich.co.uk

Mailboxes operate independently of Keys Auctioneers so postage and packing will need to be organised and paid direct to their team.

Upon being paid, Mailboxes will send their team to Keys to collect the item and organised shipping.

A Picture Department Update

The new 2017 Sales Diary means that more pictures than ever before can go in to auction at Keys Auctioneers.

Our fortnightly Antiques and Interior Sales, held on Mondays from 11am in Sale Room 8, have a dedicated picture section where oils, watercolours and prints are available. Throughout the year, in addition to Antique and Interior Sales, are Specialist Sales – all including pictures. A Sporting and Taxidermy Sale, Marine and Travel Sale, Ornithology Sale and East Anglian Art Sale all feature.

Such a thriving department needs pictures! So whether you have a picture to sell, or would like to buy a picture, please contact either Kate Banks or Kevin Lines on 01263 733795 for advice and information.

Condition Report Service

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers offer a Condition Report Service in advance of our Fine Art Sales and respectfully ask that requests are made at least 48 hours prior to the commencement of the Sale. Although we do our best to reply we regret that late requests are not guaranteed to be met due to the constraints of the sale.

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers take great care to ensure that any statements as to attribution, age, date, origin, provenance and condition are reliable and accurate but it should be noted that all such statements are skilled opinions prepared with due care, if provenance (written or historical fact) cannot be produced. However, Keys Fine Art Auctioneers do not guarantee that condition reports, whether included in the catalogue, or given at a later time, cover all aspects of an item(s) condition.
All clocks, watches and mechanical items are sold on behalf of vendors by Keys Fine Art Auctioneers strictly on an “As Found” basis.

No guarantee or warranty is issued or given in anyway, either written or verbal and therefore refunds will not be issued on the basis of the Lot not being “in working order”, “incomplete”, or “not in original condition”.

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers would respectfully ask that prospective buyers view Lots in person, wherever issues regarding condition are seen as important to them, satisfying themselves as to the condition, completeness and originality of any Lot on which they intend to bid.
