As a rule, items can be purchased at auction by participating in the auction in Auctionata’s auction room. The customer may participate in an auction in person through his presence in the Auctionata auction room, (although the number of participants may be limited by Auctionata,) or may be represented at the auction. The customer may also participate in the auction via means of communication such as letter, fax, telephone, email, or his user account on the Auctionata website.
Online absentee bids, written purchase orders and bids by telephone shall constitute a commissioning of Auctionata by the customer to place bids on his behalf and to enter into a purchase agreement with Auctionata if he places the winning bid. In this respect, the customer authorizes Auctionata to place bids on his behalf and to enter into the purchase agreement resulting from the winning bid. In this respect, Auctionata is granted an exception from the provision of Section 181 of the German Civil Code (BGB) by the customer.
Only verified customers are allowed to participate in an auction.
A user account can be set up free of charge and does not oblige the user to participate in an auction. No entitlement to a user account shall exist. A user account allows a customer to submit simultaneously bids in an Auction via the internet. Additionally, it allows a customer to submit online absentee bids via the internet.
In order to set up a user account, the following data must be provided truthfully by the customer:
Surname, First Name
Residential address (or deviating shipping address)
Every change of the above mentioned data has to be reported without request via email, fax, letter or by telephone to Auctionata. The user account for a legal identity has to be registered by its legal representative. The user account is personal which means that only individuals are allowed to create the user account and only the registered person is allowed to use it. The user account is not transferrable.
Before the participation in an auction, Auctionata verifies the persons who want to participate in it. Auctionata is therefore entitled to verify the identity of a customer before his participation in an auction. Customers are verified, if their identity has been proven towards Auctionata. This is especially the case, if:
Customers have concluded a consignment agreement with Auctionata,
Customers have already purchased goods in the Online Shop and have paid and accepted the items or have picked up items subject to the presentation of an ID,
Customers are personally known to Auctionata,
Customers have been verified by means of a copy of an ID, via credit card, via a credit agency or via the provision of security and/or bank information and, as required, also can document their credit reference.
In the mid-50s Warhol created a series of drawing of shoes, which he called the ‘Golden Shoes’ and which, to an extent, personified important people of that time or were dedicated to them. As confessed fan of Christmas, Warhol took up this theme and also drew imaginative, cheerful ironic 'Christmas Shoes' in various shapes and of bright colors. Rosenthal Studio Line picked up two motifs from the extensive number of drawings and turned them into three-dimensional objects made of porcelain. ‘Andy's Merry Christmas Shoe, limited to 99 copies and decorated with holly, is one of the highlights of the Christmas-edition by the master of pop art.
The porcelain shoe is in a very good condition with minimal signs of wear. The dimensions of the shoe measure 10.4 x 20 x 7.5 cm. The wooden box measures 10 x 27.5 x 27.5 cm.
The porcelain manufacturer was established in 1879 as a family business by Philipp Rosenthal. Rosenthal is known for pioneering efforts in product design and worldwide success in design shops. Through collaborations with designers and artists, an impressive line of products arose - today seen as classic pieces.
Andy Warhol (1928-1987)
Andy Warhol, founder and leading figure of the American Pop art, was born in 1928 as a son of a Russian family in Pittsburgh. He began his artistic career by creating advertising graphics. In 1956, he presented his first graphic works at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In the early 1960s, Warhol began experimenting with different techniques and started focusing on typical American objects of the consumer society, as for example Campbell’s soup cans or Coca Cola bottles. In 1962, Warhol started with his series of portraits of famous stars, such as Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley, who were then at the height of their career. His well-known studio ‘The Factory’ was a meeting point for internationally successful artists, actors and musicians. As early as the 1970s, galleries started exhibiting Warhol’s work, which is now part of some of the most famous collections, including the Modern Museum of Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London and the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.
