Any concerns must be brought to our attention within 14 hours
of the lot's sale. We endeavor to provide as much information
as possible and describe condition issues as fairly as we are
able. It must be understood that any description or assessment
of an item or its condition must be regarded as opinion only,
and cannot form part of any legal contract. Where we have identified
particular faults or damage to items it must be understood that
reference to such faults does not imply the absence of others,
nor does the lack of such a reference imply that an item is
free of faults. Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves
as to the suitability of lots before buying. Written and oral
descriptions are our opinions and should in no way be construed
as a guarantee of any kind as to age, condition, materials or
any other feature of items being sold. Many particulars will
be subjective in nature and the auctioneer reserves the right
to make final decisions as to whether descriptions contain erroneous
information of a nature substantial enough to cause false impressions
for buyers. Please inquire about any areas of concern prior
to bidding, we welcome your questions. Beyond our descriptions,
all items are sold as-is, where-is with no warranties or guarantees
of any kind, express or implied. All items are available for
examination at our gallery, prior to auction. Your bidding will
signify that you have examined the items as fully as you desire,
or that you have chosen not to examine them.
