Pook & Pook online-only auctions run similar to a regular salesroom auction with the lots being sold one at a time in lot number order. The only difference is that there are no bidders in the salesroom or on the phones. All bidding, both live and absentee, takes place online.

Leading the selection of fine art is a large oil on canvas by J. Ed. Quigley (American mid-20th century) that depicts an early American sign painter at work (below).
