Accepted payment methods
The lots listed in this catalogue will be offered by New River Auctions as owner or as agent for consignor(s) subject to the following terms and conditions. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound
by these Conditions of Sale.
BEFORE THE SALE
The condition of lots can vary widely due to factors such as age, previous damage, restoration, repair
and wear and tear. Their nature means that they will rarely be in perfect condition. Lots are sold "as is",
in the condition they are in at the time of the sale, without any representation or warranty or
assumption of liability of any kind as to condition by New River Auctions, Inc. or by the consignor.
Any reference to condition in the Sale Catalog or in a condition report will not amount to a full
description of condition, and images may not show the condition of a lot. Colors and shades may look
different on the screen or in reproductions to how they look on physical inspection. Condition reports
may be available to help you evaluate the condition of a lot. Condition reports are provided free of
charge as a convenience to our buyers and are for guidance only. They offer our opinion but they may
not refer to all faults, inherent defects, restoration, alteration or adaptation because our staff are not
professional restorers or conservators. For that reason, they are not an alternative to taking your own
professional advice. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have requested, received and considered
any condition report.
New River Auctions. and its consignor(s) make no warranty or representation, express or implied,
that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. New River Auctions
Inc. expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in the catalogue.
Estimates are based on the condition, rarity, quality and provenance of the lot and on prices recently
paid at auction for similar property. Estimates can change. Neither you, nor anyone else, may rely on
any estimate as a prediction or guarantee of the actual selling price of a lot or its value for any other
purposes. Estimates do not include any buyer's premium or any applicable taxes or charges, if

participation in any auction and to reject any bid.
Registration before Bidding
A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before
bidding. We may require bank or other financial references. New River Auctions respectfully
requests that all prospective bidders who wish to bid live in the physical gallery register prior to the day
of the sale so that we may ensure seating for all who desire to bid.
Bidding as Principal
When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the
buyer's premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly
agreed upon in writing, with New River Auctions, Inc. in advance of the sale date, that the bidder is
acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to New River Auctions, and that
New River Auctions, Inc. will only look to the principal for payment.50
We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids given to us at least 24 hours prior to the sale for
the convenience of clients who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone.
Bids must be placed in U.S. dollars. If we receive written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts,
and these are the highest bids on the lot at the auction, it will be sold to the person whose written bid
was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other
commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or
for errors and omissions in connection with the written bid. All absentee bidders will be required to
complete a credit card authorization form authorizing New River Fine Art, Inc. to charge the card, if their
bid should be the winning bid, up to and including the highest authorized bid written on their Absentee
Bid Request form, plus Buyer's Premium and any applicable taxes.
On lots with a low estimate of $1,000 and above and if a prospective buyer makes arrangements with us
prior to the day of the sale, we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate
in the bidding by telephone and we do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions
in connection with telephone bidding. These telephone bids may be recorded at the discretion of New
River Auctions Due to limited staffing, all requests for telephone bids will be accommodated on a
first come, first serve basis.

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 low estimate of the lot. Reserves are agreed upon
with consignors or, in the absence thereof, the absolute discretion of New River Auctions. 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 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.

bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or
dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the
bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale,
our sale record is conclusive.
The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the case of a tie bid, the
winning bidder will be determined by the auctioneer at his or her sole discretion. In the event of a dispute
between bidders, the auctioneer has final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer
the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the New River Auctions sale record shall be
conclusive. Title passes upon the fall of the auctioneer's hammer to the highest acknowledged bidder
subject to the Conditions of Sale set forth herein, and the bidder assumes full risk and responsibility.51
