How do your auctions work?
The "opening bid" (first bid placed on an item) starts the bidding clock. Items are open for bidding for 3 days after the "opening bid" is placed. When the time remaining runs out that item is declared "sold" to the current high bidder. No further bids are accepted on that item.
Do you buy and/or take consignments for ethnographic collectibles?
Yes, feel free to contact us
for more information.
Are all your items authentic?
We use detailed item descriptions that explain each items authenticity. Some items have provenance and/or evidence of use while others have artistic merit. If we are unsure of an items provenance we will clearly state so. If the authenticity of an item is unknown we'll let you know our degree of suspicion. All reproductions are clearly described as reproductions. We stand behind our descriptions. If an item is not as described you can return it for a 110% refund.
What types of payment methods do you take?
At the end of each auction we email you an invocie. You can use Visa, Mastercard, or PayPal to pay.
When can I expect to receive my winning item?
We typically ship items within two weeks of receiving your payment. Bidders must pay packing, postage and insurance costs. We ship U.S.A. orders U.S. postal service. Packages sent outside the U.S. are sent via either the U.S. postal service, surface or air, or UPS. All packages under $200.00 value are sent uninsured at purchaser’s risk for damage or loss, unless purchaser specifically requests insurance at the time payment is made. All orders sent outside the U.S. with a value of $200.00 or more will be insured. Orange Umber will declare full value of each package on customs forms along with factual descriptions of items enclosed regardless of insurance option chosen.
