Such bidder thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility for the property sold, agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full purchase price therefore or such part upon such terms as the Company may require.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ All property shall be paid for and removed by the purchaser at his/her expense within seven (7) days of sale and, if not so removed, may be sold by the Company, or sent by the Company to a public warehouse, at the sole risk and charge of the purchaser(s), and the Company may prohibit the purchaser from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or purchaser in any future sale or sales.

Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ If the foregoing conditions or any applicable provisions of law are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to the Company and the Consignor (including without limitation the right to hold the purchaser(s) liable for the bid price) the Company, at its option, may either cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser(s), or resell the property. In such event, the purchaser(s) shall remain liable for any deficiency in the original purchase price and will also be responsible for all costs, including warehousing, the expense of the ultimate sale, and the Company's commission at its regular rates together with all related and incidental charges, including legal fees.

*Reserves: Some lots in the sale are subject to a reserve which is the
confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. The
reserve will not exceed the estimate range of the lot. Reserves are agreed
upon with consignors or in the absence thereof, the absolute discretion of
International Auction Gallery, Inc. The auctioneer may open the bidding on
any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The
auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of
the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in
response to other bidders. With respect to lots that are offered without
reserve, unless there are already competing bids, the auctioneer, in his or
her discretion, will generally open the bidding at quarter to half of the
low estimate for the lot. In the absence of a bid at that level, the
auctioneer may proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is
recognized, and then continue up from that amount.*
*Credit Card Processing: Bidder agrees to pay the credit card processing
fees of up to 3% of the sale price.*
