By bidding at an auction, whether in person or by agent, absentee bid, telephone, Internet or other means, the purchaser or bidder agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions of Sale. TERMS AND CONDITIONS 1. All items are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" with all faults. There are no warranties or representations of merchantability, of fitness, nor of any other kind, expressed or implied. All items are available for your examination prior to bidding. Written and oral descriptions are our opinions and should in no way be construed as a guarantee of any kind as to authenticity, age, condition, materials or any other feature of items being sold. Four Seasons Auction Gallery attempts to catalogue every lot correctly and will attempt to point out any defects, but will not be responsible or liable for the correctness of the catalog or other descriptions of the lot. We recommend prospective bidders examine all items in which they have an interest. By placing a bid, either in person, by phone, absentee or via the Internet, you signify that you have examined the items as fully as you desire to or that you have chosen not to examine them. If you require absolute certainty in all areas of authenticity, and the results of your evaluation leave uncertainty in your mind, we recommend you have an expert examine the lot for you or do not bid on the item in question. If your item(s) are damaged in shipping, you will need to contact your shipper to file a claim. Please note that if you pay late and thus receive your item(s) late, this does not qualify you for special privileges. We do not give refunds! All sales are final! 2.

No statement (oral or written) in this catalogue, at the sale, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty or representation, or any assumption of responsibility. All measurements are approximate. Any verbal terms provided on the day of the auction will take precedence over any written material and will be construed as additional and/or amended conditions and terms of the auction. 3. The successful bidder is the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer not any electronic bidding reports. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt on Four Seasons Auction Gallery's part as to the validity of any bid, the auctioneer will have the final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, Four Seasons Auction Gallery's sale record is conclusive. 4. While many items in the auction will be sold without reserve, the auctioneer and company representatives withhold the right to bid for business or personal reasons on behalf of any consignor for the purpose of protecting a reserve established by the consignor; that is, placing bids during the auction if and when the highest outstanding bid is less than the reserve on the item(s) being offered. 5.
