COVID-19 VIRUS UPDATE

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING SHIPMENTS OF THE MARCH AUCTION & GALLERY SALE ITEMS

Paulus Swaen Auctions considers your well-being with the utmost importance.
During this time of global uncertainty, we will continue our online auctions while doing all we can to ensure the health and safety of our clients and employees.

As a global business, we are heavenly dependent on a reliable and safe service provided by courier services and national postal systems.
With most countries now in a lockdown, and most postal services no longer delivering signed-for/registered mail, we have decided to continue our online auction,
but we will keep all purchases on hold UNTIL THE END of the state-of-emergency period.


We will ship once you instruct us to do so, and after the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), the WHO (World Health Organization) and all government agencies end their state-of-emergency periods. We will ship in combination
with a future auction at its conclusion.

hold option
The hold option
For those clients who are not yet using the hold option, it is :
Your items will be kept on hold and combined mailed out with a future auction and you pay only a one time shipment fee.
At activation the standard shipping fee (US$ 30) is added to your bill.
No shipping fees are added to future acquisitions and you may combine Gallery and Auction items and there is no time limit to this service.
If in the future, shipping the parcel can be shipped at a more economical shipping service; the difference will be refunded.

Please do not bid in our auction if you are dependent on getting your acquisition during the corona virus state-of-emergency period.

We are closely monitoring COVID-19 developments and will announce any changes should they be necessary.

Stay safe and healthy,

* Rosanne Cash tweeted: “Just a reminder that when Shakespeare was quarantined because of the plague, he wrote King Lear.”

** Although we're all washing our hands and sanitizing regularly, remember that the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers is not good for collection items.
The Preservation Research and Testing Division (PRTD) of the Library of Congress screened two classes of sanitizers (alcohol-based and water-based) to assess their effect on paper based collection materials.
- The results from colourimetry measurements indicated an increase in yellowness for the coated relative to uncoated papers, where both were exposed to elevated heat and humidity.
- Alcohol-based hand sanitizers showed the most significant changes in colour compared to water-based.

**** Signature Required Suspension
FEDEX and most other couriers have temporarily suspended for most deliveries in USA and other affected countries.
