Watch and bid live on the Duke's website for Fine Art and Specialist Auctions

Registration with us prior to auction day is essential to avoid disappointment. 

The Fifth Money Laundering Directive introduced changes which bring art market participants into the scope of the Money Regulations 2017 from 10th January 2020. Consequently we have introduced an industry leading registration process to ensure best practice and compliance with the legislation.

To create an account and register with us follow the steps under the 'sign up' page on the top right corner of our website.

To participate in the auctions as a vendor or buyer you will need to complete Basic registration which requires you to verify your phone number, address and a payment card within your account. To complete this process there is a £3.99 registration fee.

There is also an Advanced certification which provides full access to all our services and the removal of any selling/spend limit (€10,000 annually). This requires you to upload two identification documents. The first being a photo ID with a current address and the second being photoless confirming your residence. 

Photo ID - Please provide a scan or photo of one of the following: Passport, Valid driving licence, Shotgun certificate, Firearms licence, HM Forces ID card, EU residence card (Home Office Issue).
Photoless ID - Please provide a photo or a PDF of one of the following: Utility Bill (not mobile phone), Bank Statement (less than three months old), Council tax bill, Mortgage statement, Tenancy agreement, State pension book, Solicitor letter confirming residence (all must be recent or current).
