Pre-sale Estimates

The pre-sale estimates are intended as a guide for prospective buyers. Any bid between the high and the low pre-sale estimates would, in our opinion, offer a fair chance of success. However, all lots, depending on the degree of competition, can realise prices either above or below the pre-sale estimates.



The reserve is the minimum price the seller is willing to accept below which the lot will not be sold.


Condition of Lots

Solely as a convenience, Larasati may provide condition reports. The absence of reference to the condition of a lot in the catalog description does not imply that the lot is free from faults or imperfections.

The Auction is governed by the Conditions of Business at Larasati Timed Auction. These Conditions of Business apply to all aspects of the relationship between Larasati and actual and prospective bidders and buyers. Anyone considering bidding in the auction should read them carefully.


Bidding at Online Auction

To register for the auction, potential bidder must register on for a bidding paddle. All auctions are conducted in Indonesian Rupiahs.

Timed Auctions are internet-only auctions that run for a set duration of time and are available for absentee bidding only. These auctions allow you to place bids until the scheduled end time for a particular lot. Whoever has the highest bid when the time runs out wins the lot.

If a bid is placed within the last 5 minutes of a lot’s scheduled end time, we extend the sale by 5 minutes from the last bid. This way other bidders have a chance to place a bid. Extended bidding continues until 2 hours after the last lot’s scheduled end time.
