South Africa's premier auction house Strauss & Co.'s online auction site is a great place to shop for art and antiques, and a local first. Auctions are conducted entirely online at set periods during the year. The site is easy to use - simply register, view and bid. Also perfect for browsing. Reserve prices generally start from under R 1000 and there are usually plenty of smaller items worth considering including artworks, jewellery, silverware and other covetable objet.
