How do I bid?

  • Input your maximum bid amount in the "Bid" field to the right on the item page. Then click the "Place bid" button.

    Our maximum bid service will bid for you, placing the smallest necessary bid at every time, up to your maximum bid amount. Bidding service.

  • Confirm your bid after double-checking the amount, currency and the item location.

  • You should now see a confirmation that your bid has been placed.

How do maximum bids work?

If you place a bid that is higher than the next incremental bid you will automatically activate the maximum bid service. We will place your bids up to your maximum bid. If your maximum bid is equal to, or lower than se reserve price of the auction, your maximum bid will be shown immediately.

Often the bidding-war only start at the very few minutes. If you place a maximum bid you never need to worry about missing out on an interesting item. You will ever only pay exactly the amount needed to win the bidding, with your maximum bid as the ceiling.

This is how it works:

  • Enter the maximum bid you are willing to place for the item in question. If you place a bid higher than the lowest possible according to bid increment the maximum bid service is automatically activated.

  • In case your maximum bud is outbid we will let you know by email. You can then choose to place a new bid.

  • If two bidders place the same maximum bid the first bid registered will be the winner.

  • Should your maximum bid be the same as or lower than the reserve price your maximum bid will be posted at once. This is becouse maximum bid service is trying to win you the item and must exceed the reserve price in order to do so. Remember that your bid need to exceed any reserve price to count as a winning bid.

What is an estimate?

The estimate is a market valuation of the object before the auction set by our inhouse specialists and shall only serve as a guide for the buyer.

The price at which an object is eventually sold can substantially differ from the estimate price.

Making an estimation

There are several factors and circumstances that should be considered when estimating an object. Our specialists consider quality, but also supply and demand.

Different approaches are employed in investigating an object depending on its category. Generally speaking, we use three basic concepts: object, material and condition.

Object: We analyze the object in terms of composition, execution, etc. We try to identify the artist, their signature, style and expression, etc. How the subject is positioned in its social context, its provenance, etc.

Material: We assess the condition of the object in terms of its material, paint layers and support material, such as if it is silver or nickel silvers, painting on canvas or wood panel etc.

Condition: During examination we inspect the condition of the object. Whether there is previous damage, restoration, wear etc. and how this affects the whole object.

These elements, together with former national and international prices is what determines the value.

Our ambition is always to perform an accurate valuation.

What is a reserve bid?

A reserve bid is a hidden price under which the seller will not sell the item. Bukowskis Market accepts bids below the reserve bid, but they won't be winning bids.

The reserve bid does usually never exceed 80% of the estimate and cannot be lower than 300 SEK / 30 €, that is our starting bid.

What is a maximum bid?

Usually the bidding on an item takes off in the last few minutes. If you place a maximum bid you never have to worry that you will forget to bid later. You only pay as much as it takes for you to win the item, with your maximum bid as a cap.

This is how it works:

  • Enter your maximum bid, the highest amount you are willing to pay, even if it's much more than the starting bid or the current highest bid.

  • Our maximum bid service will bid for you, placing the smallest necessary bid at every time, up to your maximum bid amount.

  • If there are no other bids, your bid will match the starting bid.

  • If the item has a reserve price and your maximum bid is below it, your bid will be the same amount as your maximum bid. If your maximum bid is above the reserve price, your bid will be the same amount as the reserve price.

  • As long as no one bids against you, your bid will remain unchanged.

  • If you're outbid, the bid service will place another bid according to our bid increment, as long as this doesn't exceed your maximum bid. The new bid is always the lowest necessary for you to win the auction.

  • If someone bids over your maximum bid you will immediately receive an email notification. You can then place a new maximum bid.

    You can increase your maximum bid at any time, even when you have the highest bid, to ensure no one outbids you at the last minute.

    A maximum bid can be lowered to the next lowest bid-increment allowed. The bid already placed is not affected.

  • If two bidders place the same maximum bid, the earlier bid wins.

What is resale right (Droit de suite)?

Droit de suite is a right granted to artists or their heirs, in some jurisdictions, to receive a fee on the resale of their works of art. By law, the buyer pays an artist fee for certain works of art. This fee is 5% of the hammer price, or less.

For more information about this law:

in Sweden see: BUS

in Finland see: Kuvasto

What is ending time?

The ending time is extended if a bid is placed within the last minute. The ending time is extended by 3 minutes. E.g. if you bid with 30 seconds remaining, the auction is extended so that 3 minutes and 30 seconds remain. This gives everyone the chance to place their bids.

If you place a maximum bid with the highest amount you're willing to pay, you lessen the chances of being outbid in the last minutes.


Cancellation of winning bid

Can I cancel a winning bid?

It is never possible to cancel a winning bid. The cancellation right of 14 days according to "Distans- och hemförsäljningslagen" / “Etäkauppa- ja Kotimyyntilaki" is not applicable for winning bids at Bukowskis Market due to that you always can place a bid at our shops in Stockholm, Helsinki, Göteborg, Malmö and Norrköping.
