Packaging and Shipping of Auction Lots
Proper packaging of porcelain and ceramics is very complex and special packaging often must be made. On request, we will take care of professional packing and a smooth and insured shipment of your porcelain or ceramic objects. The costs for the production of the packaging, the time required for the appropriate packaging and the costs for the transport (courier or post) must be paid in full by the buyer and range from CHF 180.- to 1’500.- depending on the format of the shipment and the destination of the recipient. If possible, we recommend that you personally pick up the objects at our auction house Rapp.
