How Consignments Work:

Visit us or send us images of your exceptional item or collection along with a brief a description and we will let you know if your piece(s) are best suited for our exceptional sale or one of our other online auctions. If your item is accepted as an article of distinctive quality, a BRG specialist will discuss the timing, fees/commission structure. The same holds true with other consignments. BRG will always provide a consignment agreement to ensure the successful sale of your item/collection.

 

What are the terms and/or fees for consigning with BRG?

Upon review of your consignment submission, one of BRG's estates and acquisitions specialists will discuss the terms and conditions for accepting your consignment. If your item or collection is suitable for one of our exceptional auctions (or a different auction), our team will discuss the fee structure at that time. All terms for consignments will be clearly outlined in the consignor agreement.
