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

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?

Hi Jacob,
It's important to me that you are heard and respected. I'd like to help but I might need some more information.
Is your concern that you can't link to the article as the author, or as a Tarisio subscriber? Unfortunately in both scenarios, Tarisio probably doesn't have the ability address that unilaterally because the content in these Journals is in the rightful control of the VSA. Let me encourage you to approach them directly. We've found them extremely accommodating as a vendor/partner and I would expect them to give the same treatment to a contributor in good standing.
Good luck!

Hi Jacob,


The VSA Journals isn't our content to control in that way, but we support the VSA's decision to move the Journals online because it represents a significant advancement in terms of accessibility. The VSA is a good organization and we share their views on transparency and inclusiveness. We're proud of this partnership and are happy for everyone who will take advantage of the Journals now.


We're also happy to refund and cancel your Tarisio subscription if you determine it's too expensive. Please call, email, or chat with us privately?

Best wishes,

That's right! We were so pleased to partner with the VSA to bring the Journals online. It is indeed free for VSA members, and includes a powerful search tool for any topic or keyword that might appear in the history of journals. We think it's one of the best depositories of knowledge available to makers, enthusiasts, members of the trade, collectors...anyone!
