Christie’s iPhone application was unveiled this summer and is proving to be a valuable method of staying connected with the auction world in the palm of your hand.  Downloading the application is not, however, a substitute for previewing works in person and clients are not yet able to bid live, although the auction house plans to unroll a live bidding feature in the near future.

Here are some of the helpful features of the Christie’s iPhone application:

  • Browse over 450 auctions in over 80 categories including all areas of fine and decorative arts, jewelry, photographs, collectibles, and wine, among many others
  • Zoom in on lots with extremely high quality resolution
  • Get sale results
  • Email different lots that interest you to friends and colleagues
  • Learn how to buy and sell at auction and about private sale services
  • Get directions to Christie’s salesrooms using Google Maps
  • Download fashionable wallpapers featuring fine art, jewelry, and decorative arts

The Christie’s iPhone application is available through the iTunes App Store, at Christies.com and through Facebook and Twitter.

  1. I was very happy to discover this great site. I need to to
    thank you for your time due to this wonderful read!
    ! I definitely enjoyed every bit of it and I have you bookmarked to see new stuff in your web
    site.

    Everything is very open with a clear explanation of the challenges.
    It was definitely informative. Your site is very helpful.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Humm… Would they object to a fongeerir bidding on the knife, or just you offering overseas shipment? (I don’t usually do this eBay-thing, so I am not very versed in their silly rules. I have heard about them, of course, but forgot most of it.) Assuming you would otherwise not be against sending the knife overseas, I would be rather interested in the knife.(Perhaps it would help if I pointed out to them that this household already has two Smith & Wesson 1911’s, a bunch of US manufactured cutlery ranging from my straight razor to a SOG tomahawk, even the scope on my AK is a Trijicon. We are already polluted by American weaponry and we rather like it like this. 🙂 No? You don’t think it’d help? Even if I sent them a picture where I’d pose in front of my Jeep wielding as much of my US manufactured weaponry as I could fit on me? Hmm… Strange people, these eBay folks…)On a more serious, although only loosely related, note, all these shipping restrictions are beginning to be rather irritating. We are having a major drought of .45ACP ammunition in Finland, finding night sights for the aforementioned S&W1911s is a real PITA, and what sights exist, nobody seems inclined to sell them overseas. (Here’s hoping Brownells will sell me some Trijicons. Three identical dots is not my favorite configuration but it would sure be much better than the stock ski ramps.) Even optics are severely restricted. Some on-line shops no longer sell anything weapon-related to Finland, citing US government regulations. No scopes, no weapon lights, not even slings. Is the idea of armed Finnish computer geeks really this scary to the US government? :p (Seems to me that a lot of folks who are heavily into firearms are in the IT field over here.)

    • As Charlie Sheen says, this article is “WINNING!”

  3. 5 Vps

    We’re a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable info to work on. You’ve done a formidable
    job and our entire community will be thankful to you.

  4. Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company
    you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I
    must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

  5. If you want to obtain much from this paragraph then you have to apply
    these methods to your won weblog.

  6. If some one wishes to be updated with newest technologies therefore he must be pay a quick visit
    this website and be up to date daily.

  7. All icons and emoticons presented here work with Skype version 3.
    Similar to the green button, you will soon reach a red button with the word ‘Continue’
    written across it, but a warning above saying ‘do not press the red button’.
    To remove the game, find the settings link under the navigation box and a list of installed gadgets
    will appear in the “Extension Settings” area.

  8. The Mayo Clinic reports that each year in the UK,
    see the U. C previously reported significant decreases in
    coconut oil for hair loss from 1995 to 2000, with incidence falling by 70 to 85 percent in three
    communities selected for surveillance. This helped some, but I ASSUME that it will not only reduce discomfort, but also relieve your itchiness.

  9. Haphazardly casting “Toadification” could land your Sim a visit from the Spellchecker, who will hand
    your Sim a citation. The Victorian Card Game is a social activity as well, so make good use of it.
    Free play is the same as on the PC, where the created Sim is
    left to his or her own devices to make a living however
    they please.

  10. Today Universal Orlando Resort announced the grand opening
    date for its interactive Superstar Parade and Cinematic Spectacular:
    100 Years of Movie Memories, a multimedia show on the Universal Studios Florida lagoon.
    The new area within Universal Studios will be just as expansive, immersive and authentic as
    the existing themed environment. ) and pizza that we are convinced
    is DC’s “hangover cure.

  11. The developers did a great job keeping the game violence-free, and replacing the gunshots and stabbings of modern games with
    comical “Wile E Coyote” style battering. After all, if Sauron wins, he will likely ban drinking, gambling,
    and wenching, and what self-respecting scoundrel is going to put up with that.
    , it’s likely that many adults are reminded of their love of the Middle Earth stories and anxious to introduce their kids to the stories.

  12. Hi there, I enjoy reading all of your article. I like to write a little comment
    to support you.

  13. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to
    put this short article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both
    reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  15. Many young people who are keen lovers of the game begin to teach themselves
    through self help methods and thus get on hooked to certain wrong
    patterns or moves which later on convert into chief obstacles
    in their progress. But this can be a handful and make for engrossing
    entertainment too. Have you always wondered how you can control stress management in the workplace.

  16. Agricola took the gaming world by storm when it
    was released at the Spiel convention in 2007, and won the
    Spiel des Jahres award for Best Complex Game in 2008.
    You’ll have to keep the spot nice and clean and
    once again employing someone to fully clean
    it costs money. You will find a good amount of war tactic games on line.

  17. What’s most absurd is that punters typically have
    a long way toward determining who takes the battlefield.
    Philip Rivers (QB, San Diego Chargers): He has
    an interception problem, but the team has a lot of new talent at receiver.

    A wide receiver that played his college ball at USC, and was drafted by the Dallas
    Cowboys in the fifth round of the 1995 NFL draft Hervey came to the Eskimos in 1999.

  18. It is a very bad idea for a person to represent themselves in a criminal case.
    Although almost every person feels the consequences of worldwide recession, it is sometimes simply reasonable not to try
    and save on just about everything. The good part of the game is that you can undergo different experiences
    while playing it such as being a first person shooter, a
    third person shooter, and you can ride your car and what not.

  19. All that being said, the aspect to all of this
    that I wish to share, and perhaps provide
    a dose of caution, is: Grades. The golden toad and the harlequin frog
    of Costa Rica are gone completely as a result of the global warming changes we are experiencing.
    – Other dynamic pastimes, games, sports and activities.

  20. The environment is instead imagined by the people participating in the game.
    While I’m aware that the companies need to make money, there seems to be a level of dishonesty
    in saying a game is F2P when in fact very few features are available as fully free.
    Now that that you know how it works, it’s now time to consider your chances.
