While all items are offered and sold entirely as is without return privilege or recourse as outlined above RSES may, entirely at their discretion, extend a limited return privilege (outlined below after the exclusions to follow) on a case by case basis for certain items whose certain attributes may come into question prior to the consignor being paid or twenty eight calendar days passing from date of sale, whichever occurs first, regardless of payment, inspection, invoice, shipping, delivery, pick-up or other transaction, evaluation or examination-related status. This discretionary review does not apply to artwork created or described as created or assumed to be created prior to 1850 or to work by, attributed to or associated with artists born prior to 1800 nor does it apply to estimates of dates of creation within the dates of an artist's lifetime born 1800 or later. Also excluded are dates of printing of a print or date of manufacture of a work of decorative art if the question arises of the creation of said lot possibly dating to a year later than said item's design. Additional exclusions include specific materials within scope of original materials i.e. oil vs. acrylic, specific variations between direct-contact print media i.e. etching vs. stone lithograph vs. woodblock print, variations between screened, offset, digitized or reproductive media i.e. chromolithograph vs. photolithograph vs. serigraph vs. pochoir vs. giclee or material variations within decorative arts i.e. mahogany vs. boxwood, oak vs. chestnut, pine vs. poplar, plastic vs. Bakelite vs. lucite, porcelain vs. faience, patkong vs. pewter, rose gold vs. yellow gold, bone vs. ivory, etc. Items identified as simply lithographs may be original stone lithos, offset or otherwise photoreproductive editions, items identified as simply prints may be of any reproductive media, items identified simply as silver may be of any silver metal including silverplate, Sheffield, .800, coin, sterling or otherwise and items identified simply as gold may be of any gold metal including gold electroplate, gold plate, rolled gold, karat gold or fine gold. Items identified as brass or bronze may be of any non-ferrous metal composition such as brass, bronze, dore' bronze, etc. and any identified metal-containing item including but not limited to brass, bronze, gold, iron and silver may contain other metals or component parts of other metals and/or other materials and items containing descriptions of any materials may also contain additional materials in said object(s). Excluded are lots with any tentative or speculative designations i.e. After, School of, Circle of, Attributed to, bears signature, apparently, likely, etc. Another very important exclusion are works by artists or firms for whom in the same original or print category the majority of examples that currently are offered at auction without artist, artist's family, exhibition, prior international auction or catalogue raisonne' provenance by major auction firms with offices in more than one country require certificates from specific experts or foundations prior to inclusion in such auctions and the subject lot offered by RSES lacks such a certificate i.e. for original works by Georges Rouault or Andy Warhol and over one thousand other prominent artists as well as for objects routinely offered authenticated and/or graded by grading societies such as autographed baseball cards and gemstones over a carat. Other artists excluded from discretionary consideration include those artists or firms where authentication committees or experts may be forming, disbanding or where multiple experts are known to offer differing opinions or numerous revised opinions including i.e. originals by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Rembrandt van Rijn. Additionally excluded from discretionary guarantee consideration are any works in any media by artists who regularly receive media coverage, whether or not warranted, for widespread incidents of fraud, forgery, fakery or misrepresentation including ARTnews' 10 Most Faked Artists (Giorgio de Chirico, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Salvador Dalí, Honoré Daumier, Vincent van Gogh, Kazimir Malevich, Amedeo Modigliani, Frederic Remington, Auguste Rodin, Maurice Utrillo), Marc Chagall, Joan Miro', Alexander Calder, many members of the Russian avant-garde, major French Impressionists and most major Mexican Modernists. Additionally excluded from guarantee consideration are items by Galle', Rolex, Tiffany Studios and Tiffany & Co., glass signed Lalique (as opposed to glass by R. Lalique) as well as any item not signed in a Western European language (due to staffing limitations). Clocks, watches, vehicles and mechanical objects are excluded from discretionary guarantee consideration apart from karat gold content markings. Any item that carries a specific supplemental statement in the item description addressing Auctioneer's Discretionary Guarantee may be eligible for consideration of limited guarantee even if otherwise excluded herein. Should at the sole determination of RSES an item not be excluded from the Auctioneer's Discretionary Guarantee and the request for consideration be received strictly by the time limitations above RSES may elect solely at their discretion to extend a full or partial refund with or without shipping and with or without buyer's premium with the typical refund being the complete purchase price including buyer's premium together with cost of shipping to the client (in accordance with certain specific instances, below) with the immediate return of the item in identical condition and state of completeness being the only cost and responsibility of the buyer. Any testing, cleaning, material sampling, destructive examination, cutting, unsealing, breaking open, dislodging or replacement without the prior expressed consent of RSES voids any and all Auctioneer's Discretionary Guarantee consideration. Instances of discretionary refund, noting extensive exclusions above, may include authorship or manufacture by an individual or firm other than as indicated, a hand signed signature determined not to be by the artist, a specific silver content statement of 80 or greater percent silver or a specific gold content statement of 37.5 or greater percent being false by more than 25 percent of indicated pure metal percentage amount or as mandated by law, an item described as an original media creation being a print or if an etching, stone lithograph or woodblock print is determined by RSES review to be a photoreproduction, an item described as primarily made of glass, ceramic or metal being made primarily of a man made substance or if the stamped year of a dated coin is other than as described. Buyer and seller agree that in no event shall any remedy by RSES, voluntary or adjudged, exceed the total amount paid to RSES for a subject item and outcome of any post-sale matters of an item shall not negate buyer responsibilities for any other bid and/or purchased items. All parties are advised that should they have any questions relating to the above they should inquire to RSES prior to bidding.
