Vichy Enchères


The auctions are public

Everybody has the right to attend as a spectator. Everybody can bid and buy, as long as you are of legal age, accountable and solvent. Then let’s go with the flow …


A significant specificity of the French public auction system is the buyer’s guarantee of its purchase. In fact, each lot sold is accompanied by a slip guaranteeing the authenticity of the item for a period of five years. Finally, a certificate of authenticity prepared by the experts themselves is issued for the most important instruments.
Thank you for reading our sales conditions in order to best prepare your auctions with us.
