In Topic: Tarisio changes end date of August auction

14 August 2014 - 12:41 PM

Hi Chris,


That would be shameful. Luckily that's not the case and the problem with load times was disappointingly widespread (again). We're working hard to fix it and need to ask for the benefit of your doubt.


Your bid will be still be accepted. Please do call or email if you'd like to discuss your concerns! Thanks!

Hi Rick!

Hello fellow Maestronetters!


Sorry for the confusion here. Doing anything to the sales, especially on the last day of bidding, is our least favorite thing to do! The load times on the website were too long and the problem was too widespread to hold an auction so we sent this email to all registered bidders this morning:



Subject: Sale Postponed - August 2014 now ending 1 week later


Dear Bidder,

You may have noticed some technical difficulty on the website this morning. We apologize!

We want to ensure smooth and reliable bidding for everyone and have delayed the August 2014 Sale End by 1 week.

Lots now close on Wednesday & Thursday, August 13 & 14.
Ending times on those days remain the same as before.


Apologies again for the inconvenience. Please contact us at info@tarisio.com with any questions.

Best wishes,



Certainly give us a call or email as invited above if you have any other questions!


Best wishes,

In Topic: Upcoming Tarisio Sale

15 November 2013 - 02:14 PM

Hi Woodland,

The "soft launch" without bidding allows a chance to browse so everyone has a fair chance at the "First-In, Last Out, Take 2" discount when bidding does begin.

"Be the first AND last bidder on a given lot and Tarisio will reduce your Buyer’s Premium by 2%. There’s no catch and no limit to the number of times you can take advantage of this offer. You pay 18% instead of 20% up to $200,000, then 13% instead of 15% thereafter. The threshold is £100,000 for London sales."

This applies to Fine auctions as well as Speculative, Restorable & Trade. Read more information at tarisio.com/take2.


Good luck on your consignments in the sale! Please reach out to us directly if you have questions about the process? We're happy to help.

In Topic: All Issues of the VSA Journal Are Now Available Online

01 November 2013 - 07:48 AM

Hi Omobono!


We can appreciate the confusion. Sorry about that! My best attempt to clarify:


A VSA membership gives to access to all-things VSA, and most recently, that includes the convenience of digital access to a legacy of Journals. Tarisio partnered with the VSA to lend technical resources to make it happen. The URL for browsing those journals is vsa.tarisio.com


A Tarisio or Cozio subscription does not grant access to the VSA Journals because that content is in the rightful control of the VSA and represents one significant benefit of membership.


If you are member, or thinking of becoming one, having the Journals available online is a huge value and convenience over the cumbersome (and non-searchable!) alternative of hard copies. Learn more about VSA membership here: http://www.vsa.to/join-the-vsa


I hope that helps? I'm attending Baltimore next weekend if anyone wants to chat in private. Or contact me directly?
