Storm Notice: Cowan’s urges absentee bids for Oct. 31 auctions
CINCINNATI – Cowan’s Auctions is recommending absentee bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com as an alternative method for anyone who plans to bid in their Oct. 31 sales and who may be affected by Hurricane Sandy. The 218-lot of modern and contemporary ceramics aucton is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. EST (7 a.m. Pacific). The 207-lot auction of 20th-century art and design, and photographs is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. Pacific) on Wednesday.
“While we are physically located in Cincinnati, Ohio, we recognize that many of you may be affected by Hurricane Sandy. At this time we are still planning to conduct the auction,” Cowan’s wrote in an e-mail sent out today to those already registered for the sale. “The staff at Liveauctioneers has assured us that there will be no interruption of service in the electronic bidding platform. We recognize, however, that some of you may be without power, and therefore with access to the internet.” As an option, Cowan’s is recommending absentee bidding through LiveAuctioneers and assures one and all that their bids “will be executed competitively.”
Anyone with questions is asked to contact Cowan’s at 513-871-1670.
