The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time before its final sale and to reject any bid for any reason. The highest bidder for each lot acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the "buyer". The auctioneer may reject any bids if, in his judgment, such a bid shall be likely to affect the sale injuriously.

RESERVES. Most lots offered are without reserve. In the case of reserved items, the seller has authorized the auctioneer to bid on their behalf until the reserve price is reached.
LIMITED WARRANTY. EVERY LOT IS SOLD "AS IS", without any representations or warranties by Forsythes' Auctions, LLC or the seller as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, condition or value of the property, or the correctness or completeness of the catalog or other description of the property, and no statement, whether written or oral shall be deemed such a representation, warranty or assumption of liability. Furniture retains the original hardware and wood unless otherwise noted. Finishes are carefully described, as are markings. The wood is oak unless otherwise noted. Dimensions given in our descriptions may be approximate. The furniture is old and over the years has undoubtedly acquired a few assorted flaws. We will only mention those that we feel are objectionable. When we use the word "attribution" it means we believe it to be made by the maker by whom we attribute it. We do not guarantee it to be so, it's purely our opintion. While condition reports for most items are stated in the descriptions, prospective bidders are urged to contact Forsythes' Auctions, LLC directly for detailed information regarding any lot.

Absentee bidders unknown to us may be required to submit a bank letter of credit prior to the auction, or using a credit card, deposit with Forsythes' Auctions, LLC a fee equaling 30% of their absentee bid. The issuance of a credit card number is to serve as a deposit on bids and to guarantee payment for any successful bids. All absentee bids are executed competitively by a member of the auction staff.
