About the work

A drawing of one of my favourite buildings in Glasgow, the so-called Red Hackle building on Otago street. ( Red Hackle was a budget whisky and for a long time they owned the building and a ghostly billboard sign on the table end wall can still be made out.)
It’s wonderfully wonky, humanely higgledy-piggedly and seems to have been made by builders without a spirit level. Something Germanic about the roof. I lived less than 200 yards from this building for 17 years and passed it many times a day. The more I saw it the more I loved it. Until very recently two older guys ran a garage in the bottom where they would tinker away all day, often on a Chevrolet pick up truck that belonged to one of them.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
