Bids lower than the starting price are not accepted.
In the case of:
single pre-auction offer on one lot
and in the absence of re-launch offers during the auction, the lot will be awarded at the auction base even if the only offer received is for a higher amount (the amount of the pre-auction offer in fact indicates the maximum offer that the bidder is willing to carry out)
Example: starting price €1,000 – Single pre-auction offer €1,500 – Awarding €1,000
multiple pre-auction bids of the same amount on the same lot
and in the absence of relaunch offers during the auction, the lot will be awarded to the author of the offer with an earlier date
multiple pre-auction offers of different amounts on the same lot
and in the absence of re-bids during the auction, the lot will be awarded to the author of the highest bid at a clearing price calculated by adding to the amount of the immediately lower bid a pre-established increase in the table published below (Table A )
Example: customer A bid €1,270, customer B bid €1,800. Customer B wins not at the hammer price of €1,800 but at €1,370. In other words, the automatic increase of €100 envisaged by the table is applied to the amount of the offer immediately below it when the offers are included in the €1,000-1,999 bracket.
