Art Auction Policies

Online bidding opens on September 3 at midnight and closes for most pieces on September 24 at 5 pm PST. All bids must be placed on this website, and a credit card is required to place a bid. Once bidding has closed, the highest bid for each artwork will be automatically processed, including an 8.25% sales tax. Walkaway bids are also available with the 'Buy it Now' feature, which is 20% above the retail price. Please note that all bids and sales are final. 

Most artworks in our Auction can be shipped, but it is best to inquire, as shipping fragile ceramics can be difficult. Buyers who require shipping will pay a packing and handling charge, along with the shipping cost. Please contact pencegallery@gmail.com for any shipping estimates, questions or concerns.
