About Us

Who are we?

McTear's Gallery1842 is an online only ‘timed bidding’ auction specialist of wine and antiques. Auctions are powered by i-bidder.com and the-saleroom.com, the European leaders in online and 'timed bidding' auctions.

What do we auction?

Fine Wines, along with many categories of antiques and artwork to sports memorabilia, jewellery and fashion, along with plant and machinery, motor vehicles and liquidation stock, there really isn’t anything that Gallery1842 cannot sell. Enquiries are welcome from anyone with anything for sale!

How does it work?

Auction lots are catalogued and photographed and a start date and end date for the auction is agreed. When the auction begins, lots are open for bidding. Once the auction ends, the highest bidder is then contacted to confirm their purchase, in some cases this may first require acceptance of the offer by the vendor. Payment is then made via McTear’s online secure facility (Sagepay), the purchases are then available for collection or postage. Details on collection and postage are available in the Important Sale Information page of each auction. The vendor can expect payment no later than five weeks following the auction conclusion.

What is the cost?

Vendor and buyer commissions are exactly the same as McTear’s, as follows:

  • For buyers, commission is 20% (plus VAT thereon).
  • For sellers, commission is 15% (plus VAT thereon)

Please note that these commissions may vary in certain auctions. In some cases additional costs and certain conditions may apply. These are noted on the Important Sale Information page of each auction. Registered charities benefit from no vendor commission.
