The sale concerns the Purchaser and the Seller. Colasanti Casa d'Aste does not assume any responsibility in relation to the Purchaser, the Seller or any Third Party concerned.
Art. 2 The objects are sold to the highest bidder. The Auctioneer starts the auction beginning with the bid that s/he believes to be the most opportune, based upon both the value of the lot/s as well as the competing bids. The Auctioneer may make further bids or in response to other bids, until the reserve price is reached.
Art.3 In the case of any dispute between more than one Purchaser, the Auctioneer has the right to cancelling the sale of the item, or reoffering and reselling the object in the same sale. Each transfer to Third Parties of the lot/s purchased does not become the responsibility of the Auction house which considers the Purchaser as the sole person/s responsible for payment. Bidding at an auction in the name of and for a Third Party may be accepted by the Auction house only after sufficient bank references as well as power of attorney have been received by the Auction house at least three days before the auction.

The Auction house may accept written bids if they are received at least one hour before the beginning of the auction. Should there be more than one written offer with the same value, and are they not beaten by bids made in the auction room or telephone bids, the Auction house will consider the Purchaser to be the one who made the bid first. Telephone bidding requests will be accepted if confirmed and received at least one hour before the beginning of the sale. The Auction house do not accept liability for errors and omissions in connection with telephone bidding arising from circumstances beyond our reasonable control. Should there be a case of identical bids, the oral bid in the room will prevail upon the written or telephonic bid.

Art.7 The shipping of the purchased lot/s is in the risk and expense of the Purchaser.

If the Purchaser should not collect the lot/s within fifteen working days after the sale, the Auction house will keep them at the risk and expense of the Purchaser in the Auction house and will charge storage costs which are 25€ for each lot per month.
Art. 8 The Auction will be preceded by a public viewing of the objects in order to allow for a careful examination (the authenticity, the state of preservation, the provenance, the type and the quality) of the objects on behalf of aspiring Bidders. Following the Purchase, no one will be able to dispute or criticise the Auction house or the Sellers for lack of any quality in reference to object being auctioned, like indications relative to the state of conservation, wrong attribution, authenticity and provenance.

The Italian State may exercise on this objects its right of pre-emption within 60 days after the completed Sale; therefore the sale will be effective after this period. In the case the Italian State exercises the right of pre-emption, the Purchaser will have the right of recompense of the sum already paid.
