The items sold are often of considerable age and will exhibit wear, usage and damage often not listed in the catalog entry. The absence of condition remarks in the catalog entry DOES NOT mean the item is in perfect condition. Prospective buyers are in ALL CASES responsible for determining the physical condition of lots. Condition reports are available upon request from the auction house. However, neither Auctioneer, his or her employees or agents is authorized to make on Auctioneer's behalf or on that of the Consignor any representation or warranty, oral or written, with respect to any property. Auctioneer warrants the authorship (as hereinafter defined) of a lot only for a period of thirty (30) days from date of sale (not date of receipt) of such lot and only to the original Buyer of record at the auction. Upon being notified within the thirty (30) day limited warranty period, it is determined to Auctioneer's satisfaction that the authorship is incorrect, the sale will be rescinded provided that the lot is returned to Auctioneer in the same condition in which it was at the time of sale. Auctioneer shall have the right to have the Buyer obtain, at the Buyer's expense, the opinion of two recognized experts in the field, item must be inspected in person and mutually acceptable to Auctioneer and Buyer, before Auctioneer determines whether to rescind a sale under this limited warranty. Buyer is advised that said lot should be inspected by themselves or their agents to their own level of satisfaction prior to bidding and purchase, but in any event, by the time they have purchased the item, as the limited warranty referred to herein expires thirty (30) days from the date of sale. Otherwise, there is no recourse whatsoever with Auctioneer as to authorship as defined hereinafter. Consignor, through its consignment contract, has agreed to allow Auctioneer to provide or release to the Buyer of a contested item, after the limited warranty period, necessary contact information of the Owner (i.e., name and phone number) if Buyer wishes to seek a remedy or resolve a dispute in this matter directly with the Owner, after the limited warranty period runs. Buyer agrees and understands that after the thirty (30) day limited warranty, Buyer waives all right to request refunds of commissions, whether paid by Owner or Buyer, and all commissions are nonrefundable and shall remain the property of Auctioneer. Once the 30-day limited warranty period expires, Auctioneer may elect to have no involvement in the dispute between Owner and Buyer other than to provide contact information. If testimony is required of Auctioneer's employees or experts, their time will be charged to the respective party at the rate of $250 per hour plus expenses. If Helmuth Stone Gallery offers a refund for an item, buyer is responsible for all shipping charges incurred and Helmuth Stone Gallery does not reimburse for shipping costs. Buyer is also responsible for shipment of item back to auction house before refund will be offered.
