Andrew Jones Auctions Lots are sold ‘ AS IS ’, with all faults, imperfections and possible adaptations or restorations. Condition Reports may not include all adaptations, alterations or faults. Our staff are not professional conservators or restorers. Illustrations and photographs contained in the Catalog or the Condition Report or elsewhere of any Lots are for identification purposes only. They may or may not reveal the true condition of the Lot. A photograph or illustration may or may not reflect an accurate reproduction of the color(s) of the Lot. Lots are available for inspection prior to the auction and it is strongly advised that you or your agent do so to satisfy yourself as to each and every aspect of a Lot, including that it will be free from pests, mold, staining, its authorship, attribution, condition, provenance, history, background, authenticity, style, period, age, suitability, measurements, quality, weight, origin, value and estimated selling price (including the Hammer Price and Buyer's Premium). It is your responsibility to examine any Lot in which you are interested. It should be remembered that the actual condition of a Lot may not be as good as that indicated by its outward appearance. In particular, parts may have been replaced or renewed and Lots may not be authentic or of satisfactory quality; the inside of a Lot may not be visible and may not be original or may be damaged, as for example where it is covered by upholstery or material.
