Secondary Art Market
Most of the works offered for sale on this website are categorised as being in the Secondary Art Market. This means they are privately owned and are being offered for resale. Prices are based on the original price and a percentage added based on age, rarity, reframing and provenance. A detailed account of provenance and a known history about the artist and artwork will be given to the new owner.
We also provide a discreet service for those wishing to downsize their art collection through Saltseum or who need advice on how to blend inherited items into their existing collection.
If there is an item that you are interested in, Saltseum will bring the item to your home or office free of charge for you to consider.
To enjoy a range of artworks over a period of time we can lease any item that we have on stock. Whether it is for a long term situation in an office or on a short term basis that calls for a curated display, for example for the sale of a home or a photo styling opportunity. There are potential tax benefits dependent on receiving professional advice. We can work with clients to achieve the best result and can assist with framing, hanging and delivery.
