BEFORE THE SALE
Prospective buyers are strongly advised to ask for the condition report before the sale. Condition reports are usually available on request. All lots are sold "AS IS" and without recourse and neither Orion Asian Art London nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots. Neither Orion Asian Art London nor its consignor(s) makes any express or implied warranty or representation of any kind or nature with respect to merchant-ability, fitness for purpose, correctness of the catalog or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, material, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, exhibitions, literature or historical significance of any lot sold. The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. No statement, whether written or oral, and whether made in the catalog, or in supplements to the catalog, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, the remarks of an auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Orion Asian Art London and its consignor(s) make no warranty or representation, express or implied that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. Orion Asian Art London expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in the catalog.
AT THE SALE
Orion Asian Art London has the right to refuse participation in any auction and to reject any bid.
Registration before Bidding
A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before bidding. We may require bank or other financial references.
Bidding as Principal
When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer's premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed upon in writing with Orion Asian Art London before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Orion Asian Art London and that Orion Asian Art London will only look to the principal for payment.
We will use reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the Internet or software malfunctions related to the execution of online bids.
Some lots in the sale are subject to a reserve which is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the high estimate of the lot. Reserves are agreed upon with consignors or, in the absence thereof, the absolute discretion of Orion Asian Art London.
The auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, or to limit the maximum bid amount, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to re-offer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive.
The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Orion Asian Art London sale record shall be conclusive. Title passes upon the end of the online sale to the highest acknowledged bidder subject to the Conditions of Sale set forth herein, and the bidder assumes full risk and responsibility.
