Terms and Conditions


Important Notices for Bidders

1. Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to
assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our
salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions
of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally
accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there
is anything you do not fully understand.

2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the
seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally
disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the
seller.

3. Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what
sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot.
The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly
will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium
or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time
before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the
sale. They are in no sense definitive.

4. Buyer’s Premium. The Conditions of Sale oblige buyers to
pay a buyer’s premium at 18% on the hammer price of each lot
purchased. VAT is included in this premium (see below).

5. VAT. (*) indicates that VAT is payable by the purchaser at the
standard rate on the hammer price as well as being an element in
the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because
the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is
not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due
on importation into the UK. The double symbol (**) indicates that
the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and
the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of
VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the
buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above
symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price.
This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin
Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the
Premium is not recoverable as input tax.

6. Purchasers Condition Reports. Purchasers are reminded to
carefully examine items prior to sale. Whilst the Auctioneers are
willing to give verbal condition reports these may not reveal certain
imperfections in any lot. The exact physical condition, the extent of
any defect, restoration or repair must be ascertained by intending
purchasers by thorough inspection of the lots prior to bidding at
the sale. The Auctioneers take no responsibility whatsoever for the
condition of any of the lots included in sales.

7. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on
information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots
and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are
normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots
in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be
wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity
for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for
inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested.
Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of
lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we,
as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition.
In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed
to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined
the goods and make a representation about their condition, we
shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have
revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed
to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally,
in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are
‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made.
There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is
defined in our Conditions of Sale).

8. Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if
bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety
regulations by a qualified electrician first.

9. Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should
ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required and (b) whether
there is any specific prohibition on importing goods of that
character because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials
such as ivory. Ask us if you need help.

10. Bidding. Bidders may be required to register before the sale
commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address
on the registration form. Some form of identification may be
required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance
about our arrangements for telephone bidding.

11. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the
auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding
buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible
having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two
buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may
prefer the first bid received. Please use our website to submit
commission bids.

14. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION
(1) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry
out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample
opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent
experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any
description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding
that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness,
origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters
of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably
held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to
the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller
accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties,
whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or
statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following
Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in
paragraph 6 “information to buyers”.
(2) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction
for purposes of consumer legislation.

15. FORGERIES
Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any Lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery
(as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is
in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying
it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are
satisfied from the evidence presented that the Lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund
the money paid by you for the Lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the
catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date
of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you
shall have no rights under this condition.
The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided
by law or by these Conditions of Sale.
GENERAL

16. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or
attendance at our auctions by any person.

17. (1) any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of
and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by
them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate.
(2) Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit
of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves
enforce them.

18. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail or
Swiftmail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48
hours after posting.

19. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items
in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary
appearing at the commencement of the catalogue.

20. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict
terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the
relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects
these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect.

21. English law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.
