How exactly does the auction process work? How much time should I set aside for an auction?
If you are participating in the auction live at the hall, you should allow for plenty of extra time. The auction itself lasts about two hours, but this figure may fluctuate given the number of lots and the course of that particular auction. Lots are auctioned in the order in which they are listed in the catalogue. You do not need to remain in the auction hall if “your” lot has already been auctioned.
