AUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

AUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

General Provisions

Galerie Arcimboldo, spol. s r.o. - hereafter "Galerie Arcimboldo" - conducts auctions of movable property on the basis of a Contract for Sale of Goods by Auction, signed by both Galerie Arcimboldo and the Seller. Galerie Arcimboldo acts as an intermediary between the Seller and the Buyer on the basis of this Contract and is responsible for collecting the purchase price, auction premiums and VAT.

These Terms and Conditions, sales and all related activities are governed by the laws of the Czech Republic. The Seller and the Winning Bidder or their authorized representative agree that the Czech courts have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any disputes hereunder.

Guarantee

The Seller must provide assurance in the Contract for Sale of Goods by Auction that they are the sole lawful owner of the offered item(s) and that there are no outstanding claims against the item(s), and that the Seller is not limited by law in any way to offering the item(s) for sale and to selling the item(s).

Any information about items offered at auction is provided by Galerie Arcimboldo after taking into consideration information provided by the Seller and after consultation with experts in the relevant field. Information provided to Bidders about any item up for bid, whether in writing or orally, including information provided in the catalog, is information that has been provided to Galerie Arcimboldo, and Galerie Arcimboldo does not accept any responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the information provided. Bidders are provided with the opportunity to view the items in person before the auction. If a Bidder is unable to attend the pre-auction exhibition, he can request a written Condition Report, including additional photographs, if available, for items with a reserve price of at least 10,000 CZK. These Reports are provided to Bidders free of charge.

Auction Rules and Conduct

Reserve prices are listed in the catalog. They do not include the auction premium or VAT.

Participation in the Auction is open only to registered bidders. At the time of registration, a government-issued identification card or passport must be presented. Upon registration, a participant becomes a Bidder and is issued a Bidder Number.

Participation in the Auction can be made on the basis of a signed power of attorney, which must include the maximum bid limit which the Bidder is willing to pay for the item (the stated limit does not include the auction premium or VAT).

Bidders may also participate in the auction by telephone for items with reserve prices above 10,000 CZK. The same registration form is used as for absentee bids - the Bidder marks the relevant box ("telephone bid") on the form and provides a telephone number where he can be reached during the course of the auction.

The absentee bid form is available at the back of the printed auction catalog or by download at the Galerie Arcimboldo website (www.arcimboldo.cz). The completed form, including the signed power of attorney for written absentee bids or for bidding by telephone, must be accompanied by a copy of the Bidder's national identification card or passport. The form should be delivered to Galerie Arcimboldo by fax, e-mail or regular mail no later than 48 hours before the start of the auction. Galerie Arcimboldo shall not guarantee acceptance of absentee or telephone bids received after this deadline.

Galerie Arcimboldo reserves the right to request a bank guarantee from a Bidder or a deposit in the amount of half the opening bid of the item in question.

Items to be auctioned are marked and described, including the lowest opening bid (reserve price) in the printed auction catalog and on the Galerie Arcimboldo website (www.arcimboldo.cz). Items will be auctioned in the order they are listed in the catalog.

The bids will be accepted in order as determined by the person authorized to conduct the auction - the Auctioneer. Once an item is announced, Bidders may bid on items by raising his bidder number. The auction of the item takes place when the Bidders place bids. Bids must be greater than the minimum opening bid set by Galerie Arcimboldo.

Minimum bid increments:
a) 500 CZK, if the current bid is less than 10,000 CZK
