★Regardless of your bidding method, the deadline of the auction is Saturday, December 10th at 5 PM / 17:00 (UST+9)。
★To reduce risk, we rely on the "middle value method."
The bidder with the highest bid will receive the lot, but the price to be paid will be the average of the highest bid and the second highest bid. For example, if the highest and the second highest bid are JPY 200,000 and JPY 100,000, respectively, the final price will be JPY 150,000.
In case there is only one bidder, the average of the bid and the initial price will be the final price.
★If the highest bid was offered by more than one bidder, the sucessful bidder will be chosen by lottery.
★Upon bidding, please clearly state a method of receiving works (Shipping / Pick up from the gallery)
★If you choose a work to be shipped, shipping and packaging cost will be charged separately.
