Condition Guarantee

We endeavor to provide as much information as we can for each lot we offer and earnestly strive to provide a fair, objective sense of the quality and condition of each item. Our listings always include one or more images of the actual item to assist bidders in their assessment process. Further, except where otherwise stated, we offer a full refund guarantee that our descriptions are free of false information. Any concerns must be brought to our attention within 14 days of the lot's shipment date. We endeavor to provide as much information as possible and describe condition issues as fairly as we are able. Where we have identified particular faults or damage to items it must be understood that reference to such faults does not imply the absence of others, nor does the lack of such a reference imply that an item is free of faults. Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the suitability of lots before buying. Written and oral descriptions are our opinions and should in no way be construed as a guarantee of any kind as to age, condition, materials or any other feature of items being sold. Many particulars will be subjective in nature and the auctioneer reserves the right to make final decisions as to whether descriptions contain erroneous information of a nature substantial enough to cause false impressions for buyers. Any time we determine that we have made a false statement in a listing, the bidder is invited to return the item for a full refund, with our apologies, except for listings where all sales are specified as final. To qualify for a refund, such false information must be clearly and indisputably incorrect, using a reasonable person standard. Subjective differences of opinion do not constitute false information. We cannot and do not claim that our descriptions are complete, as such a standard is a matter of subjective definition. Any details or criteria beyond what we have provided are the responsibility of the buyer to estimate or establish. Our staff are eager to answer any questions prior to auction and we strongly encourage all bidders to preview items in person before bidding. All items are sold as-is, where-is with no warranties or guarantees of any kind, express or implied. All items are available for examination at our gallery, prior to auction. Your bidding will signify that you have examined the items as fully as you desire, or that you have chosen not to examine them.
