Christie's charges a Buyer's premium calculated at 23.205% of the hammer price for each lot with a value up to €110,000. If the hammer price of a lot exceeds €110,000 then the premium for the lot is calculated at 23.205% of the first €110,000 plus 11.9% of any amount in excess of €110,000. Buyer's Premium is calculated on this basis for each lot individually.
THE MOISSONS COLLECTION OF MASONIC WARE
"Ter bibe, vel toties ternos. Sic mystica lex est, vel tria potandi, vel per tria multiplicandi!" The Free Masons celebrate their togetherness accordingly to the Humanist ideals of Brotherhood. The masonic ritual objects such as: firing glasses; punch bowls; jugs, etc. are decorated with specific insignia and symbols.
