All sales are final! CONDITION AND AUTHENTICITY OF ITEMS All items are sold AS IS and WHERE IS. Descriptions and condition reports (verbal and written) are considered knowledgeable opinions and are to be taken for informational value only, and are not to be taken as warranties or guarantees of any kind. In no event shall WR Auction Gallery Inc. nor its consignors be responsible for the correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance, authenticity, authorship, age, condition, manufacturer, materials, completeness, estimate of value, or any other feature of the items being sold. Please note that all measurements and weights provided by WR Auction Gallery Inc. are approximations. The buyer must use the previews to examine all merchandise and to judge whether or not the descriptions, photographs, and any other information provided by WR Auction Gallery Inc. are accurate. FIRST TIME BUYERS First-time buyers are required to submit a copy of their id and a copy of the back and front of their credit card. They are also required to fill out and submit the registration form. BIDDING By placing a bid, you signify that you have examined the item(s) as fully as you have desired to or that you have chosen not to examine it/them. When you place a bid, you enter into a contractually binding and irrevocable obligation to complete the transaction if you are the 'winning bidder' of that lot. The 'winning bidder' is the person certified to be the highest bidder by the auctioneer, and it includes any under-bidder who is awarded the lot following the failure for any reason of a higher bid as decreed by the auctioneer. Under no circumstances can a bid be retracted after it has been submitted (unless the auctioneer has allowed the retraction). The 'winning bidder' assumes the full risk and responsibility of the property that he/she has purchased, agrees to sign any forms related to confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full purchase price (the hammer price + the buyer's premium). CONDITION REPORTS The condition of an item is not included in its description. Bidders must request condition reports and additional/detailed photographs directly from WR Auction Gallery Inc. for a particular item or lot number. Condition reports are knowledgeable opinions and are not meant to be warranties and/or guarantees of any kind. Prospective bidders must come to the previews to judge whether or not the condition reports provided by WR Auction Gallery Inc. are accurate. Condition reports must be requested at least 48 hours before the sale date. AUCTIONEER'S RIGHTS The decision of the auctioneer is final and cannot be challenged for any reason. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid and he/she shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in the case of a dispute. Potential bidders may be turned away at the sole discretion of the auctioneer. The auctioneer may reopen an item if he/she determines an error.
