1. Validity
The Auctions of the Michael Zeller Auction House (referred to hereinafter as the
"Auction House") are governed by the conditions described below, which are
deemed to be acknowledged by making bids.
2. Basis of the Auction
a) The Auction is voluntary and public in the sense of § 383 Abs. 3 BGB (German
Civil Code). It is performed through the Auction House in its own name and for
the account of the consigner, who shall remain anonymous.
b) All objects and items as presented for the Auction may be viewed and examined
before the Auction. The objects are used. They are offered for Auction in their
actual condition "as is". Specifications in the Auction catalogue shall exclusively
serve the purpose of illustration and description of the objects to be auctioned;
they were prepared to the best of our knowledge, however, shall not constitute
a guarantee of the Auction House regarding the authenticity and origin of the
object and shall not be part of the contractually agreed quality of the objects;
the same shall apply for the description at calling. Prices as stated in the
catalogue are limits, not estimates.
3. Bids, Fall of the Hammer

of the catalogue, in which these conditions are published.

to give any reason.

they must be submitted to the Auction House not later than one day prior to
the Auction.
d) The Auctioneer may combine, divide or withdraw entries or offer them in another
order than stated.
e) As a rule, the calling begins at the stated limit price.Thereafter it is usually
increased by around 10 % per bid. The knockdown shall be made after a triple
call to the highest bidder, as long as a higher bid is not made.
f) The Auctioneer may reject a bid; in this case the immediate preceding bid shall
be deemed to be binding. If the highest bidder declines to validate his or her
bid or there are other doubts regarding the validity of a knockdown, the Auctioneer
is entitled to repeat the knockdown or to re-offer the object. Should
several persons offer the same highest bid, the winning bid will be decided by
drawing lots.
g) The Auctioneer's knockdown leads to a contract of sale between the Auction
House and the bidder rendering the purchaser liable to collect and pay for the
object. All risks of loss or damage of the object shall pass to the buyer with the
fall of the hammer.
h) The Auctioneer is not obliged to reveal the name of the consignor to the
4. Purchase Price
a) A surcharge of 26 % will be levied on the amount of the hammer price. This
includes the statutory value-added tax, which is not stated separately due
to the application of difference taxation in compliance with § 25 a UStG.
b) Standard taxation continues to be valid for goods that do not fulfil the
conditions according to § 25 a of the German Value added Tax Laws. A
surcharge of 21 % then is levied on the hammer price and value-added tax
is charged on this amount (knockdown price and surcharge).
c) The following designations are given in the descriptive text for cases where

legal aid, remain reserved. In the event of a default on payment the Auction
