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.
Liturgical glassware from Leerdam
Exploring new markets, the Leerdam glassfactory decided to produce glassware for religious use. Between 1927 and 1929 glass-designer A.D. Copier cooperated with the artist and Benedictine monk Dom Gregorius de Wit OSB (Ordo Sancti Benedicti) in designing a whole range of glass for use in the Catholic liturgy. The illustration of a comtemporary promotional leaflet in the collection of the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum, shows a wide variety in objects like altar vases, ampoules and other objects. Unfortunately the range was not very successful and only few examples exist.
