EAC FAQ's

What exactly is an eac?

EAC Gallery grew out of the Emrose Art Corporation, founded by the infamous Rosenbaum brothers, Marvin and Larry, back in 1970. Both brothers shared a great love for the arts, but Marvin chose to pursue this interest in a warmer climate, founding Rosenbaum Fine Art in Boca Raton.

Left on his own, facing the long and cold winters of the northeast, Larry expanded his interest and knowledge to include both the arts and fine autographs, and the rest is simple – Emrose Art Corporation was too long a name and also difficult to spell, and was abbreviated to “EAC”. We left the “Gallery” to remind us of our roots in the arts. P.S. Larry finally came around in 2015 and joined Marvin in the Sunshine State!

May I still place my bids by telephone or email?

Although you may now register, place and follow your bids and make your payment online, the EAC Gallery staff you have met through the years will still be on hand to answer your questions, take your telephone bids, and answer your emails.

The telephone number is 561-369-0480 The email address is auction@eacgallery.com.

Our staff will be available to assist you with your bidding during regular business hours: Monday through Thursday 10 am to 4 pm eastern time. Expanded hours during the final week of each auction are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30 am to 8 pm eastern time.

What are ceiling or maximum bids?

When placing such bids you are instructing EAC Gallery to competitively bid on your behalf up to but not above your highest bid, which is called a max bid. Your bid will remain at the lowest amount unless you are outbid by another bidder.

What is the five minute rule?

EAC Gallery established the five minute rule to enable our bidders to avoid being disadvantaged by other bidders 'spiking' or by busy telephone lines. Once we enter the extended time period at 9 pm eastern time on the final day of each auction, all bids will continue to be accepted for all lots until (1) at least five minutes have passed without any internet or telephone bids and (2) all call back requests have been serviced or (3) the auctioneer has determined that the auction shall end. The five minute rule does not guarantee infinite extensions of the auction end time. The five minute rule will apply to all lots – all lots will close at the same time.

How do I find auction results?

Once the auction has closed you may login and click on the "MY ACCOUNT" tab to view your bidding results. To view the prices realized for all lots in closed auctions, click on the ARCHIVES tab.

Will I be charged sales tax?
