Consignment Appraisals by Photograph
We thank you for your interest in consigning your property with Bonhams & Butterfields. Due to the large number of consignment appraisal requests we receive, our specialists are unable to answer each inquiry as personally as they might prefer. If your property meets our minimum consignment requirement we will send you a personalized complimentary auction estimate and property description. You may upload up to 5 jpeg images per submission and the total image size should not exceed 2MB. Clear photographs of each individual item, including dimensions and other pertinent information is expected.
