determine their condi-ons. Before making a purchase, it is advisable for the buyer to view
and examine the property, and they (or any independent experts ac-ng on their behalf)
must ascertain the accuracy of any descrip-on given of the lot. Addi-onally, prospec-ve
buyers bid with the knowledge that any representa-ons or statements we make about an
item's authorship, authen-city, origin, date, age, provenance, condi-on, or an-cipated
selling price inevitably involve maFers of opinion. We promise that any such opinion will be
held honestly and reasonably, and we accept responsibility for opinions that are offered
carelessly or dishonestly. All condi-ons and warran-es, whether rela-ng to the descrip-on,
condi-on, or quality of the lots, whether express, implied, or statutory, are hereby excluded.

relevant catalogue descrip-on and a wriFen statement of defects. If the proof convinces us
that the lot is a deliberate forgery, we will refund your purchase price, including any buyer's
premium, given that:

specialists as of the sale date,
• If you are unable to transfer an acceptable and marketable -tle to us, you will have no
rights under this circumstance.
-We reserve the right to refuse admission to our property or aFendance to one of our
auc-ons, at our choice.
