How to buy

It is simple, safe and yet exciting to buy art at the auctions at Blomqvist. You decide how high you want to bid, so that you can feel comfortable with your purchase. With 145 years of experience with auctions, Blomqvist is Norway’s leading expert on art valuation. Follow our three simple steps to be an auction winner.

STEP 1 – VIEWING

You are welcome to our salesroom to examine all the lots for sale. During the week prior to every hammer auction, we keep an open house at Tordenskiolds gate 5, so you can look closely at the objects for sale. Experts are always on hand to answer any questions you may have. If you do not have the opportunity to visit us, you can study the lots in our catalogue – the online version or the printed edition. The catalogue is usually available two weeks prior to the auction. You can order it or become a subscriber. More information here.

STEP 2 - BIDDING
