How To Bid

The Silent Auction 2019

How To Bid

If you haven’t experienced any of our auctions before, here’s a quick overview:

Each Auction Lot has a Gallery Price (to guide you) and a Reserve Price (the minimum amount you may bid).

The value of the current highest bid is not publicised – that’s why it is ‘silent’!

Winners will be contacted between 17-19 April.

Ways to bid

You can submit your bids in the following ways:

– Online via the form on the page for each Lot

– Visit the gallery between 4-13 April to view the Lots and bid in person

– Call us on +44(0)207 403 2800 (Mon-Sat, 10am-6pm)

– Email: silentauction@londonglassblowing.co.uk with the following:

Your Name

Your Phone Number

Preferential Bidding

If you are tempted to bid on multiple pieces, but you don’t have the budget to win them all, simply let us know that you’d like to do ‘preferential bidding’ and we’ll enter your bids one at a time, in order of your preference


The deadline for online bids is 23:59 on Sunday 14 April, 2019. The last day to bid in the gallery is Saturday 13 April, 2019.


Happy bidding!
