All property presented for auctioning undergoes a thorough examination by one of our Hermitage Fine Art specialists. To request the complimentary auction examination, you can contact us by email or telephone.
For initial evaluation, you can send photographs of the lots, specifying the dimensions and artist's name, to the email of the auction house. Please note that, before you can sell your lot at an auction any preliminary assessment must be confirmed by one of our experts in person.
We systematically refuse to receive parcels for Hermitage Fine Art, mentioning presents, gifts, documents, and donations. It will be under the responsibility and costs of the sender. We accept only the exact content of parcels with proper documentation according to Monegasque law.
