Sold! We have a local Carmel-by-the-Sea buyer of Carl Sammons’ “Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif.” in our modified Dutch auction. Purchased at the Friday, April 10 discounted price of $1,250. Check back soon. We plan to pick another painting and do this again.
Let’s have a little fun! Are you familiar with the concept of a Dutch Auction? It’s a type of auction in which the price is lowered until the item gets a bid. The first bid made is the winning bid and results in a sale. This is in contrast to a typical auction, where the price rises as bidders compete. As a variation on this concept, we have selected this small 6×8 oil painting from the 1940’s titled “Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif” by Carl Sammons (1886-1968. The $1,750 list price includes a beautiful Mayen-Olson gold leaf frame. Starting on April 1st, we will lower the current $1,750 list price by $50 every day in April until someone buys it by calling
or by email to
If unsold on May 1st, the final discounted price disappears, and the painting returns to the original retail price of $1,750. You can follow the daily price reductions here on our website:
