In line with their knowledge of the Irish art market, Loughlin Bowe are the first antique and art auctioneers in Ireland to introduce a special scheme for sellers. According to the company, under this scheme: "Vendors of important items which we deem to have a lower pre sale estimate in excess of €10,000 and which are accepted by us under this scheme do not pay any vendors commission on the hammer price achieved for these items, when these items are sold by us at auction."
