Selling your art

Do you wish to sell a piece of African art?


Then let shikra sell it for you.

By means of our bilingual online catalogue you will have immediate access to a worldwide market of African art lovers.

Each month we are visited by many thousands of African art lovers and are among the leaders when it comes to being found by the world's favourite search engine "Google".

Benefit from the advantages this site has to offer and sell your piece of art through shikra on a commission basis.

First step:

Simply send us an e-mail including a short description of the piece (no more than 75 words) plus information regarding country, ethnic group, the artist if known, material, size, weight (important for calculating the postage) and if possible the age and provenance. In addition we require at least one photo so that we can gain an initial impression of what the piece looks like*.

Our full service:

Description of the item, professional photography plus high quality translations (no computer translations) of the German text are all services that are offered by shikra. In addition your piece will be highlighted in the new additions section of our online gallery as well as being further marketed in our regular newsletter that is received by over 2,000 art lovers.

Your benefit:

There are no costs until the piece is sold!! Our commission is 25% of the sales price (plus 19% VAT).

Visit shikra:

If you live around the area of Hamburg in Germany you can always call and visit us. However please make an appointment first to avoid disappointment.

* As we pride ourselves on the standard of photography and the quality of the German and English text it will be left to the discretion of our staff to decide whether photographs and text are of an acceptable standard.
