Terms & Conditions
TERMS OF SALE
Purchased lots will be available only after payment has been made and our accounts credited.
The sale will be conducted in Euros. In addition to the hammer price, purchasers pay a buyer’s premium of 22 % plus VAT of 4.31 %. The VAT can be reimbursed with proof of exportation.
The lots in this auction are bound by a set reserve price, determined by the auctioneer prior to the sale. French law states that a lot can not be sold below the reserve price.
The auctioneer is bound by the indications in the catalogue, modified only by announcements made at the time of the sale noted in the legal records thereof. Attributions were made in view of scientific and artistic knowledge at the date of the auction. Some difference may appear between the original work and its catalogue and online reproductions. However, there will be no claims in such matter. Measurements are given only as an indication.
The highest and last bidder will be the buyer.
Should the auctioneer recognize two simultaneous bids on lot, the lot will be put up for sale again and all those present in the saleroom may participate in this second opportunity to bid.
The buyer must pay the full amount due (including the premium as stated in the conditions of the sale) within ten days of the sale. This applies even if the buyer wishes to export the lot and an export license is, or may be, required. The buyer may pay by wire transfer or by Visa or MasterCard. Personal checks, Paypal and other credit cards will not be accepted. The buyer will not be allowed to retrieve or have the lot shipped until all amounts due to us have been received by us and/or credited to our bank account.
