Auction Proceedings: Auctioning will most often commence in the lot sequence listed in the catalog. However, the auctioneer retains the right to combine, separate, skip, or re-sequence lots as he deems fit. The auctioneer will progress the bidding on each lot in monetary increments of his choosing. The auctioneer may elongate or shorten the presentation time of each lot, to include the time between the presumed highest bid and the fall of the hammer. The auctioneer will call the highest bid three times before striking the hammer. In the rare case of two equal high bids, the auctioneer retains the right to determine the winning bidder; however, in any case of ambiguity or doubt regarding the highest bid, the auctioneer may elect to repeat the auctioning of the lot from the starting price; until such a decision is made, all bids are binding.
The auctioneer retains the right to reach the specified reserves of consignors, and, as such, may submit bids throughout the proceeding in order to meet said specified reserve. Should the hammer price still not meet the specified reserve of the consignor, the winning bidder is bound to the hammer price for 30 calendar days while the auction house and the consignor reach a decision regarding the sale; the consignor retains the right to refuse the sale of a lot that has not reached its assigned reserve. Additionally, the auctioneer may, under the direction of the consignor, cease the auctioning of a lot at any time during its display or presentation.
Regarding attending the live auction, the auction house retains the right to exclude persons from attending the auction without stating a reason.

Every item listed is an antique and was, in its era, intended for use. Thus, all items will exhibit natural wear. Any defects beyond typical aging or repairs will be listed in the item description. Restoration efforts, unless clearly assessed, may not be included in the description. The auction house encourages all customers to inspect items thoroughly before placing bids. Returns requested on the grounds of condition discrepancy will not be honored.

Billing and Taxes: Customers will receive invoices within 14 business days of the auction's close. The invoice amount owed will reflect both the hammer price of each lot won, calculated shipping, plus a 20% buyer's premium (along with Invaluable's 5% fee). This buyer's premium covers auction house expenditures related to the storage, care, insurance, etc., for each lot. Additionally, international customers should expect to pay all customs fees in accordance with the laws of their respective governments.
Attendees of the live auction who wish to settle their invoice and retrieve their lot(s) immediately should report to 403 Chatham Square Office Park, Fredericksburg, VA 22405 within the business hours of 0800 and 1700 EST. It is important to note that attendees of the live auction will be subject to pay 5% VA state (Stafford County) sales tax in addition to the hammer price of each lot and the 20% buyer's premium (along with the 5% Invaluable fee if the service was used).
All processed invoices are subject to review and possible correction ex post facto up to 60 calendar days, which could result in money owed to either the auction house, the consignor or the customer. All overpayments will be credited.

Payment Liability: All payments are due no later than 7 business days from the receipt of invoice. The auction house accepts all major credit cards, domestic checks and money orders, and wire transfers. Wire transfers must process fully no later than 12 business days from the receipt of invoice. Customers who elect to use a wire transfer as their payment method are solely responsible for paying the transfer fees instituted by their bank. Title of ownership of each lot transfers to the customer only when the full invoiced amount is received and processed.

In order to process a credit card payment, please call 540-424-1338 or email thiesjohnsonauctions@gmail.com to make arrangements. Please note that credit card transactions may be subject to a processing fee of up to 3%.

Customers who do not meet their payment obligations may be reported to a credit agency, and their balance may be outsourced to a debt collector. Alternatively, the auction house may, at its sole discretion, elect to either send the lot(s) to auction once again, or sell the items privately; in such a case, the customer will still be liable for the 20% buyer's premium (to include Invaluable's 5% fee). The auction house reserves the right to refuse bids in future auctions from customers who have not met their previous payment obligations.

Return Policy: The auction house guarantees the authenticity of all items, excluding those marked as reproductions or repaired. Legitimate claims against a purchased item's authenticity must be submitted within 30 calendar days of the date of invoice. Any returns must be discussed with the auction house before submission. Although we offer a condition guide within the catalogue to help customers determine quality in tandem with our photographs and descriptions, we highly recommend a visit to view the objects at our auction house, as there is no substitute for examining these objects in person. All items are sold in their stated condition ("as is") at the time of bidding. Any return request submitted on the grounds of condition will not be accepted. Returns of any kind will not be accepted after accounts have been settled with the consignor(s), 60 calendar days from the close of the auction. All return requests must be submitted by the original bidding customer of the auction; any return requests submitted by a third party (such as a customer of the original bidder) will not be accepted under any circumstances.
