AlBahie's Role
AlBahie Auction House ("AlBahie" or "Us") acts as agent for and in the interests of the Seller, except as otherwise stated.
If AlBahie sells a Lot as principal, AlBahie will mention it in the Catalogue or Auctioneer will make an announcement to that effect during the Auction.

Explanation of Catalogue Symbols
The following symbols used in this Catalogue have the following indications: (?) Lots with this symbol indicate that the Lot is owned in whole or in part by AlBahie or AlBahie may have an economic interest in it.
(?) Lots with this symbol indicate that the Lot is not subject to a Reserve.
( ) Lots with this symbol indicate the Lot may contain material subject to import or export restrictions. This information is made available for the Buyer and the absence of the symbol is not a warranty that there are no restrictions regarding import or export. Albahie does not accept liability for errors or failing to mark Lots. A Buyer's inability to export or import any lots with this symbol cannot justify a delay in payment or cancellation of sale.
(?) Lots with this symbol indicate the Lot may contain organic materials.
Watches & Clocks
Almost all clocks and watches are repaired in their lifetime and may include parts which are not original. AlBahie does not give a warranty that any individual component part of any watch or clock is authentic. Watchbands described as 'associated' are not part of the original watch and may not be authentic. Clocks may be sold without pendulums, weights or keys.
As collectors' watches and clocks often have fine and complex mechanisms, a general service, change of battery or further repair work may be necessary, for which you are responsible. We do not give a warranty that any watch or clock is in good working order. Certificates are not available unless described in the Catalogue.
Most wristwatches have been opened to find out the type and quality of the movement. For that reason, wristwatches with water resistant cases may not be waterproof and we recommend you have them checked by a competent watchmaker before use.
Rugs & Carpets
Some countries prohibit or restrict the purchase and/or import of Iranian- origin "works of conventional craftsmanship" (works that are not by a recognized artist and/or that have a function, for example: carpets, bowls, ewers, tiles, ornamental boxes). For example, the USA prohibits the import of this type of property and its purchase by US persons (wherever located). Other countries only permit the import of this property in certain circumstances. As a convenient to Buyers, AlBahie indicates these lots with symbol (diamond with open circle). It is Buyer's responsibility to ensure you do not bid on or import a lot in contravention of the sanctions or trade embargoes that apply to you.
Bidders are advised that the Gulf Cooperation Council has imposed a ban on the importation of Iranian goods to or via its member states. Please check with shippers whether you will be able to ship Iranian/Persian origin carpets to a GCC member state prior to purchase.

Estimates do not include Buyer's Premium or GCC import tax. A Lot can sell for the Hammer Price below or above the Estimate. The Estimates may be subject to revision at AlBahie's sole discretion.
