I totally agree about the average selection, wondering why these would run thru such an elaborate auction process-- and the prices played out mediocre for mediocre quality! For some reason Antiquorum sent be the book too-- which is a beautiful book with a ton of effort only to showcase a bunch of average stuff
I don't know anything about the fees the sellers pay but it does seem strange they would go this route especially when the auctioneer isn't pulling in great results.... I would say pulling in average to below average results for average condition stuff with way above average fees for everyone involved. At least their pics and presentation were good, as compared to some of the really awful stuff from the past (blurred photos (Bonhams) straight up photo-shopped frauds (Christies).
