Terms of Sale

To expedite shipping for the holidays, ACH payments are offered and encouraged, as is USPS priority shipping.

All items are sold as is, where is, with all faults. There are no warranties of any kind, express or implied. All items are available for your examination prior to bidding. Your bidding will signify that you have examined the items as fully as you desire, or that you have chosen not to examine them, and that you have read and agreed to the above terms. 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. Our goal is to provide prospective bidders with accurate and detailed information to the best of our knowledge. If you require absolute certainty in all areas of authenticity, and the results of your evaluation leave uncertainty in your mind, we recommend you not bid on the item in question. We do not give refunds. All sales are final.

Once we declare that an item is sold, we cannot reopen the bidding. It is the bidder's responsibility to get our attention prior to our saying "sold." We reserve the right to reject any bids deemed inappropriate or to withdraw any item(s) for lack of appropriate bids. If an item is withdrawn from the auction, it will be offered again only at the auctioneer's discretion.



Rule of Thumb for Internet Bidders:

In-House bidders are the most assured of having their bids recognized, in-house absentee bids and in-house phone bidding are the second best options. With internet bidding being the last option, as this is the option we have the least control over, and has the most potential for error.
So, if it is imperative for one to attempt to successfully purchase a lot, then attending the auction, or bidding directly through our gallery via Phone or Absentee bidding, is very strongly advised.

There may be delays beyond our control receiving and processing internet bids, which creates potential for error and missed bids. Additionally, third party bidding platforms are operated manually during Live Auctions, creating the potential for both technological and human error. Due to the potential for error via any delay caused by internet connectivity or the interface between bidding platforms and the use to the internet to bid as well as due to the possibility of human error, we highly recommend that if a bidder cannot be present at an auction to bid live, that they leave their bids with us In-House, via an Absentee Bid or a Phone Bid.

If online bidding is your only option, leaving an online backup absentee bid prior to the start of the auction is the most secure way to bid online. Although because this is an online internet bid there is potential for delays and errors once the auction goes live. Online absentee bid amounts are unknown to the Auction House, and are implemented via the online platform software as needed to compete against other online absentee bids, until the live auction begins.

Once the live auction begins, online absentee bids, and live online bids, are then implemented manually, until either the left bid amount is surpassed or all other bidding ends and the lot is won for the increment at the time all other bidding ends. For online absentee bids this can be at your maximum bid amount or below it. As noted above, online absentee bids, and online live bids, do create a risk that the bidder will be unsuccessful even if they believe their bid is the highest or the winning bid, due to the potential of failure of the various digital platforms to properly or timely interface, and/or the speed at which operators must act to try to make sure an online absentee bid, or live online bid, is brought to the attention of the auctioneer, before the bidding on an item is closed by the auctioneer.
