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 bidding is midnight Sunday 17 May 2020


How it works

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 & Shipping / Collection


Winners will be contacted from Wednesday 20th May.  Payment can be made as soon as you’re contacted and shipping will be carried out over a two/three week period due to the current circumstances. We have a car park and have a member of staff going into the gallery at regular times, if you’d like to collect the work (most Lots have free shipping except the complex pieces)


Happy bidding!


Full Terms and Conditions:

  • Once a bid is made, it is considered a written contract between the bidder and London Glassblowing to purchase the named work at the stated bid, if this is the highest bid received for the Lot.


  • Payment of winning bids is due within five working days by credit/debit card over the phone or bank transfer. If we have been unable to collect payment after this time, then the Lot will be offered to the next highest bidder.


  • In the event of a tied bid, both bidders will be contacted and given the opportunity to raise their bid.


  • You may submit as many bids as you like, including more than one bid for each Lot, if you decide to raise your bid.


  • If you wish to collect the work from London Glassblowing we will be open 2 days per week during the SA dispatch period.  Parking in our car park for collection can be arranged by email or by phone – or you can opt for free UK shipping on some of the pieces.
