Yeah, I kept having to dig around the site to find stuff. Surprisingly not well-organized.Thanks for the link, somehow I missed the FAQ. I kept thinking under the buying tab there should have been this exact faq.
Likewise. This was my first "actual real auctionhouse auction" as opposed to ebay. I learned stuff! For example, I learned that the people who do this kind of auction seriously don't both placing online bids in advance, they just show up the day of the auction ready to rumble.Sorry to hear you got outbid. A ton of the max bids I had kind of set for myself were just destroyed throughout the day.
Nah, it's an auction, that's the nature of the beast. No hard feelings towards anyone else bidding. Too easy to tear yourself apart if you go down that road.Hope it wasn't lot the I got, that would be terrible. You start a thread to help raise awareness in the community and that's the thanks you get.
I did! The two things I most wanted, in fact. It helps that I like stuff that other people don't.Bummer, did you end up winning anything?
Here is the entirety of my ivory collection:Wow, i didn't know we have some Ivory collectors here! Would love to see a few that you guys have.
Yeah Initially I didn't see it in the catalog but during the auction I could zoom in closer on each of the lots so I thought these might be a good pickup.I love the ornate details inside each of the pips! You can see it best in the diamonds, but they all have them.
Might want to sign up for their mailing list. It looks like they do an auction of similar gambling memorabilia about once a year (with magic, books, and other odd things making up the rest of the year). Here's their past auctions, and you can read through those catalogs as well: https://www.potterauctions.com/auctions/past
