What's a max bid?

Your maximum bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.

Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

Max bidding example:

If the current auction price is $100 dollars and you place a maximum bid of $120 dollars, the system will bid $101 dollars on your behalf.

If no other participant places a bid, you win that auction lot for $101 dollars.

If another auction participant places a bid of $110 dollars, the system will subsequently place a bid of $111 dollars on your behalf. The system will continue to bid in $1.00 dollar increments until your maximum bid of $120 dollars is exceeded.

If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

Buyer's Premium

All bids are subject to a Buyer's Premium which is in addition to the placed successful bid. The following rate of Buyer's Premium will be added to the Hammer Price of each Lot that you purchase:

Twenty-Two Percent (22%) of the Hammer Price


Star of the Order in silver, center in gold and enamels, reduced size. Privately made star, measures 50.4x50.8mm, weighs 21.8 grams. Of very fine quality manufacture, mid Nineteenth Century, nearly extremely fine condition. Attributed to King Carl XV of Sweden, 1826-1872, who was the only recipient known to wear this Order in this size. The star was in possession of "Mynthuset" in Stockholm for the first time in the early 1980?s. The company and the owner had extremely good relationships with the Royal and Noble world of Sweden. The owner of "Mynthuset" died in the mid 1980?s and the business does not exist anymore, however in their old catalogues one can see the company handled several other orders from one of the estates of Carl XV. According to the leader of "Kungl. Livrustkammeret" in Stockholm Carl XV had all his Stars made in this smaller size when he became older to keep the weight down. Further, if one compares it to the star pictured (page 60) in Lars Stevnsborgs recent book on Danish orders it is clear both were struck from the same die, although the center medallion differs (hand tooled) and the Star pictured in the book have an extra "diamond" and thus longer rays. However, one can see from the other types pictured it became fashion to have a more round shaped stars during mid-1850, thus the rays were cut off and stars thus "rounded". Very rare.
