reference to condition, describes an object as having had no major damage or repair but as with the nature of the material, may show minor surface
wear, discolouration etc., which indicates the acceptable wear that the piece
may acquire with age. If you are particular about minor flaws, you should
examine the pieces in person or have our staff answer any questions before

inquire as to the condition of a lot before bidding. Condition reports are
available upon request by phone, fax, email or in person. You are advised
