Estimates and reserves. Price estimates are an opinion reflecting the range in which the price may fall. Many items in the auction have a reserve, or a confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold. The reserve price is normally well below the low estimate and is never allowed to be higher than the estimates.
Buyer's Premium. A buyer's premium of 23% will be added to the hammer price of all lots, to be paid by the buyer as a part of the purchase price.
Payment. We accept cash, traveler checks, bank wire transfer, credit card or check for payment. We retain the right to hold merchandise paid for by check, until the check has cleared the bank. Payment is expected within seven calendar days of the sale.
Shipping: We will pack and ship worldwide using UPS and Fed-Ex. The purchaser is responsible for and agrees to pay all actual costs of handling, shipping, insurance and duties that may be imposed.
Condition of Lots: It is the buyer's sole responsibility to be knowledgeable about the condition of the property before bidding. In each lot we have endeavored to offer items in good, original condition, and any negative aspect has been noted, but some exceptions apply. It could be possible there are tiny chips around the opening where the stopper enters the bottle, on the edge of the stopper plug, or on the base of the bottle. Typically, boxes and labels of commercial bottles will show varying signs of age and usage, and could be frayed, weak or discolored. From manufacturing, some Czechoslovakian bottles and stoppers may not fit snuggly or display perfect symmetry. Therefore, while we have examined and attempted to describe the condition of each lot of this auction as accurately as possible, as in all auctions, the lots here are sold as is and therefore we highly encourage you or an agent to examine the items you intend bidding on prior to purchase. Catalog descriptions, condition reports, and bill of sale are a statement of qualified opinion and not a representation or warranty.
Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms and all other terms announced at the time of the sale whether bidding in person, through a representative, by phone, by Internet, or other absentee bid.
