SEE ITEM #12 BELOW FOR IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.The following together with or as amended by any posted notices or verbal announcements made during an auction constitutes the entire terms and conditions on which property shall be offered for auction sale by Stanford Auctions, Inc., doing business as Wilton Theatre Auction Gallery (referred to as "Auctioneer" or "Auction House" ), and any consignor of such property (referred to as "Seller") (collectively referred to as "WE" and/or "US") for whom we act as agent. Auctioneer, Bidder and Seller agree to be bound by these terms for this auction:1. Each lot will be sold AS IS, WHERE IS with all defects and faults, and neither the Auction House nor the Seller makes any guaranties, warranties or representations of any kind, express or implied, with regard to the description, genuineness, provenance, importance, condition, authenticity, authorship, signatures, marks, medium, material, attribution, period, culture, quality, source, fitness, value, size, rarity, merchantability or suitability of any property offered for sale. Bidders should carefully inspect each lot to determine condition and contents. All measurements are approximate. Bidder acknowledges that all lots were available for inspection prior to the auction and that he relied solely on his own inspection and knowledge of the lots and not on any information listed online, in the catalog, or otherwise provided by Auction House, Auctioneer, the auction staff or Seller. Online and catalog descriptions provided by the Auction House are rendered solely as an opinion and a convenience and neither the Auction House nor the Seller warrants or represents, nor shall be responsible for the description, genuineness, provenance, importance, or condition of a lot. By bidding, the Bidder signifies that they have examined the items as fully as they desire, or that they have chosen not to examine items. The Bidder relies solely on his or her own information, knowledge, judgment and inspection when making a decision to bid, and if they have any doubts about the authenticity, provenance, or condition of an item they should not bid. The absence of any reference to the condition of any lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections, or the effects of aging, or whether an item has been repaired or restored.2. Notwithstanding the preceding condition, if within 7 days of the sale of any lot, the winning Bidder of any painting, watercolor, lithograph, drawing, or lot of silver gives notice in writing to the Auction House that the lot so sold is a counterfeit and, if within 7 days after such notice the Bidder returns the lot to the Auction House in the same condition as when sold, and gives written proof from a recognized impartial expert which establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the returned lot is in fact a counterfeit and that this was not indicated by a fair reading of the catalog or the Auctioneer's comments at the time of sale, the Auction House may, as agent for the Consignor, at its sole discretion rescind the sale and refund the purchase price. 3. SOLE REMEDY. The Bidder agrees that he shall have no remedy other than rescission of the sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid. The original purchase price paid is defined as the amount of the successful bid price plus the buyer's premium. The Auction House will not be responsible for shipping, handling or other fees. No rescission and refund will be made unless the item is returned to the Auction House in the same condition as at the time of sale. The remedy of rescission and refund is exclusive, and the Bidder waives any other remedy which may be otherwise available in law or equity. Auction House shall not be liable for any special, consequential, or incidental damages incurred or claimed including, without limitation, loss of profits or for interest, or for loss of use of funds.4.

If shipped, Buyer is responsible for satisfying any sales tax requirements or other taxes or fees that may be imposed by their state or jurisdiction.7. If a lot is offered subject to a reserve or minimum price (the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold), the Auctioneer may implement such reserve by bidding on behalf of the Seller, whether by opening bidding or continuing bidding until the reserve is obtained, or by placing consecutive bids, or bids in response to other Bidders.8.

In the event of any dispute between Bidders the Auctioneer shall have sole and final discretion to determine the successful Bidder or to reopen bidding.9.

However, in the event a Seller bids on and is the winning Bidder on one of their consigned items, they will be charged for that item including buyer's premium.10.
