Dreweatts understands that a vendor may wish to sell an item of exceptional value discretely, rather than offering it for sale at public auction. Dreweatts is experienced in advising clients on the occasion when private treaty sales can be advantageous so achieving an optimal outcome for the consignor.
Private treaty sales are becoming a more widespread route to market with the advantage that a confidential transaction keeps an item or collection away from the glare of auction publicity. Some collectors will find this a more attractive route to sale providing a faster solution at an enhanced price.
