Participation in any of our auctions implies the unconditional acceptance of these Terms & Conditions.

Art. 1 - The sale is executed strictly in cash, Swiss francs and without guarantee. For administrative purposes, each buyer will be asked to give a proof of his/her identity in order to obtain an invoice at the end of the sale. Invoices can be settled at the end of each auction session. Buyers can settle the invoice via wire transfer, major credit/debit cards or cash. Payments in cash for an amount equal to or more than CHF 100'000 will not be accepted. Personal or company cheques are not accepted.

Art. 2 - No more bids will be accpted after the hammer strike, unless otherwise communicated by the auctioneer. In case of a dispute at the time of the hammer strike, the auctioneer may at his discretion cancel and immediately put the lot back up for sale.

Art. 3 - The auctioneer, at his/her sole option, can: refuse any bid, move the bidding backwards or forwards in any way he/she decides; change the order of the lots, withdraw any lots, divide or combine any two or more lots, reopen or continue the bidding even after the hammer strike. The auctioneer may bid on behalf of the seller up to but not including the amount of the reserve either by making consecutive bids or by making bids in response to other bidders. In the event that the reserve price set by the seller is not reached, the auctioneer may deem such lot unsold and move on to the next lot by a single strike of the hammer.

Art. 4 - The successful bidder agrees to pay a buyer's premium at 20% of the hammer price on all lots purchased. VAT at 8% is charged on the buyer's premium, giving a total of 21.6% on the hammer price. Internet buyers incur an additional 3% internet fee on the buyer's premium plus VAT (Total premium for internet buyers 24.8% inc VAT).


Art. 4a - For foreign buyers, the VAT collected may be refunded upon presentation of duly completed Swiss customs papers. To avoid administrative fees, reimbursement of VAT will only be allowed if the amount of the VAT is superior to 50CHF.


Art. 5 - Bidding must be placed by spoken voice or made by a distinctive sign unequivocally demonstrating the willingness to bid. The auctioneer, at his discretion, can refuse bids from unknown bidders. The minimum amount of an increment is 10%. However, the auctioneer may modify this rate by announcement.


Art. 6 - The viewing period allows the buyer to evaluate personally the condition and authenticity of the objects. Any dispute will not be allowed once the bidding is over. The objects are sold as seen at the time of bidding. To the best of our knowledge, all indications provided in the sale catalogue are correct; however the descriptions are only the expression of a professional opinion and do not constitute a guarantee. The catalogue may mention some damage to a lot without necessarily providing an exhaustive list. If the low estimate is CHF 1'000 or less there will be no mention of the object's condition. Condition reports are available upon request. Photographs, dimensions and weight are for indication only.


Art. 6a - Foreign buyers shall always check the relevant customs laws and regulations before bidding on any lot containing wildlife material such as, but not only: ivory, tortoiseshell, crocodile skin, rhinoceros horn, or whalebone. Hôtel des Ventes pays particular attention to complete its due diligence duties to ensure that all the objects presented in the catalogue comply with our laws and regulations of Cultural Property (CPTA). However, we are under no obligation to cancel your purchase and refund the amount paid if your lot cannot be exported, imported or if seized by a government authority.


Art. 7 - Lots must be collected at the expense and sole risk of the buyer. To avoid delivery errors and complications in invoice settlement, no lot can be collected during the sale. Unless previously agreed, collection is not permitted before full payment of the invoice. Objects may be collected by the buyer according to the "Payment and collection of lots" as outlined at the front of the catalogue.


Art. 8 - Every visitor is responsible for any damages he may cause to any given object in the sale; he may be charged with an amount equal to the average of the object's estimate plus buyer's premium and VAT.

Telephone bids are accepted from buyers already known to Hôtel des Ventes and for lots whose low estimate is or exceeds CHF 400. In the case a telephone bidder cannot be reached due to technical error or other unforseen circumstances, Hôtel des Ventes reserves the right to award the lot to the telephone bidder on his behalf at the price equal to 50% of the high estimate, unless the reserve price is higher. In addition, any telephone bids will be considered de facto as a written bid of CHF 400. These bidding services are offered as a courtesy to our clients and Hôtel des Ventes is not responsible for any error (human or otherwise), omission or breakdown in providing these services. Your request for this service must be made no later than 48 hours prior to the auction. Any cancellation of absentee/phone bids must be submitted in writing at least 24h before the start of the auction concerned. To be accepted, the cancellation must be acknowledged by the Hôtel des Ventes bidding office or the Court baliff overseeing the auction.

Art. 10 - Title of goods therefore any risk passes to the buyer the moment the hammer falls on a lot. However, ownership of a lot can only be assumed after full payment of the invoice. In case of non- payment after three days following the end of the sale, the buyer is liable to judicial prosecution. Cancellation of the sale will ensue after a 30 day period of non payment if instructed by the vendor however, all fees and other charges will still be due by the buyer.

We give no guarantees as to the condition of the frames and glass.

Art. 11 - Hôtel des Ventes reserves the right to refuse admission or participation in any auction or to reject any bids. Any persons obstructing or disrupting the auction will be subject to police sanctions.

Art. 15 - Unless otherwise specified, storage fees at a minimum of CHF 30 per month and per object will be charged for any lot that has not been collected by the buyer within 8 days following the auction. These lots will be sent into storage at the expense and risk of the buyer.

Conditions of Sale

Executed on 1st April, 2011
Revised 1st April, 2015

Conditions of Auction
These Conditions of Auction set forth the particulars of transactions concerning the auction of works of art ("Auction") to be conducted by SBI Art Auction Co., Ltd. ("SBI"). Persons who wish to purchase during the Auction ("Prospective Buyers"), sales consignors ("Sales Consignors"), and others to whom these Conditions of Auction apply (any of the foregoing includes legal entities), must comply with these Conditions of Auction. Participation in an Auction (including entry to Viewings, as defined in Article 3 Paragraph 1, and entering into sales consignment agreements ("Consignment Agreements") for the works of art and other items agreed upon between Sales Consignors and SBI) constitutes participant's agreement to these Conditions of Auction.

Part 1. Before the Auction
1. Lots
SBI shall sell by Auction, in SBI's own name, works of art and other items (hereinafter referred to as "Lots") that have passed SBI's screenings and are consigned for sale by Auction to SBI. Screenings shall be conducted at SBI's discretion, and consignment of Lots may be refused. SBI shall not be responsible for publicizing screening standards and methods.

2. Condition of Objects
Because of their nature, Lots are not new, and accordingly, are sold in as-is condition. SBI bears no liability whatsoever for Lot stains, damage, or other defects or flaws.

3. Viewing
1. SBI may, at its sole discretion, hold exhibitions ("Viewings") prior to Auctions to give Prospective Buyers an opportunity to examine Lots.
2. Persons who wish to attend a Viewing may be asked to present the identification.
3. SBI may refuse access to, or demand exit from, Viewings at its discretion without providing a reason. In such cases, speedy compliance shall be expected.
4. Prospective Buyers may observe and examine Lots at Viewings, but shall not do any of the following without SBI's prior approval.
a. Touching Lots or other exhibit items, walls, or cases
b. Photographing Lots
c. Eating, drinking, or smoking
d. Bringing animals to Viewings
e. Other actions forbidden by SBI
5. SBI shall not bear any liability whatsoever concerning the differences in the condition of the Lots between the time of the Viewing and delivery.

3. Descriptions and explanations stated in Catalogs (including the artist's name, title, materials, restoration work, signature, size, year and place of production, appraisal, provenance, and literature) are investigated by SBI and are included only as a reference for Prospective Buyers.
4. A price estimate indicated in Catalogs (an upper amount and a lower amount are indicated in Japanese yen, but the amounts do not include SBI's Premium, as defined in Article 10 Paragraph 1, or consumption taxes) is a price that SBI believes to be appropriate based on the current market for the Lots and other factors. These estimates are included only as a reference for Prospective Buyers. Actual auction sale prices may be more or less than the estimate. However, the Lots will not be sold for less than a minimum sale price specified in the Sales Consignment Agreement (the "Reserve Price") unless otherwise agreed between
SBI and a Sales Consignor.
5. Prospective Buyers shall bid on Lots based on their own judgment and at their own responsibility. SBI shall not bear any liability whatsoever regarding the information in Catalogs, including illustrations and descriptions, except when otherwise stated in these Conditions of Auction.

5. Changes in Catalog Entries
Descriptions and explanations in Catalogs are subject to change without notice. Such changes may be communicated by written postings at the site of an Action or orally by an auctioneer ("Auctioneer") immediately prior to the commencement of the Auction. SBI shall not bear any liability whatsoever concerning changes in the content of Catalogs.

7. Paddles

8. Auction Method
1. Auctions shall be conducted by an Auctioneer who receives increasing bid amounts for the item in question.

If an Auctioneer determines that a bid amount is not appropriate for any reason, the Auctioneer may choose not to accept that bid.

3. SBI shall not release the Sale Consignor's name or the Reserve Price. However, this shall not apply when SBI decides, at its discretion, to release this information with the consent of the Sale Consignor.
4. Auctions shall be conducted in the order of the Lot numbers. However, SBI may, without prior notice, withdraw planned Lots from an Auction, divide multiple Lots with the same Lot number into multiple Lots, or consolidate Lots with multiple lot numbers into a single Lot for Auction, at its sole discretion.
5. Auctions shall be conducted at the discretion of the Auctioneer who shall determine the opening bid and the bid increment. Even if a Reserve Price is set, the opening bid shall not be bound by the Reserve Price, and the final sale price may be above or below the Reserve Price.
6. Multiple persons under the same account name shall not jointly make bids.
7. Bids shall be made at the venue of an Action by raising one's paddle or gesturing (such as gesticulation, hand gesture, and facial expression). If a Prospective Buyer's bid is not noticed by the Auctioneer, they must take immediate action to attract the attention of the Auctioneer. SBI shall not be held responsible should an Auctioneer fail to recognize a bid.
8. An Auctioneer may, at its sole discretion, refuse to accept a bid without providing a reason.
9. Bids shall be deemed void in the following circumstances:
a. If a higher bid is made (including bids made by SBI on behalf of Prospective Buyers);
b. If an Auctioneer refuses to accept a bid;
c. If the bidding ends without reaching the Reserve Price; or
d. If the Auction is suspended.
10. An Auctioneer shall call out the highest bid price recognized and accepted by the Auctioneer three or more times and shall then strike the hammer. When the Auctioneer strikes the hammer, a purchase and sale contract is formed between the person with the highest bid ("Successful Bidder") and SBI for purchase of the Lots at that price ("Successful Bid Price").
11. If the Prospective Buyer who made the highest bid withdraws the bid before the Auctioneer strikes the hammer, the Auctioneer may, at his discretion, designate the person who submitted the highest bid as the Successful Bidder or may designate the person who submitted the next highest bid as the Successful Bidder.
12. In the event of a dispute concerning the Auction, an Auctioneer may, at his discretion, resolve the dispute, and all concerned parties must comply with the decision of the Auctioneer.
13. SBI may, at its sole discretion, photograph or record the venue of an Action using video cameras or other equipment.

9. Absentee, Telephone, and Other Bidding Methods
1. Submission and withdrawal of bids may be done by handwriting or fax or via telephone (hereinafter, such bid is referred to as "Absentee Bid").
2. Submission and withdrawal of an Absentee Bid shall be performed using a form designated by SBI. If the form does not include all or some of the required information, SBI may, at its discretion, determine that an Absentee Bid submitted or withdrawn is void.
3. Prospective Buyers may submit or withdraw an Absentee Bid by 5:00 PM (JPT) of a business day (here and hereafter, days other than Saturdays, Sundays, and days designated as holidays by the Law in Japan) ("Business Day") immediately preceding the day of the Auction; however, SBI shall not be liable if the submission or withdrawal of bids is not performed at the Auction due to the communication in question not being received owing to issues with mail, fax communication lines, or other reasons.
4. Prospective Buyers who wish to submit or withdraw bids via telephone must submit the application designated by SBI latest by 5:00 PM (JPT) of a business day immediately preceding the day of the Auction. Immediately before the opening bid, SBI shall call the telephone number designated by the Prospective Buyer on the application form using a telephone installed at the site of the Action and the Prospective Buyer may submit or withdraw bids via telephone. SBI shall not be liable if the submission or withdrawal of bids is not performed at the Auction because of disconnection of a phone call, mishandling of the telephone, or missed phone call, etc.
5. Only a limited number of telephones are installed at the site of an Action. Hence, if many people wish to submit or withdraw bids by telephone, applications shall be accepted on a first-come first-served basis. In this case, SBI shall not be liable if the submission or withdrawal of bids by a Prospective Buyer with a lower ranking is not performed at the Auction.
6. SBI shall submit or withdraw bids at the site of an Action on behalf of persons who submit or withdraw Absentee Bid. Such bids may be submitted or withdrawn by the Auctioneer or by other methods at SBI's discretion. Accordingly, persons who submit or withdraw Absentee Bid must grant to SBI the authority of engaging in the conduct specified in this paragraph. They shall be deemed to have consented, in advance, to act as agents for both the Consignment Seller and the person submitting or withdrawing bids, and to the possibility that other Prospective Buyers may first submit bids at the same price that SBI was to bid on the said person's behalf.
7. If the maximum bid by a person submitting Absentee Bid is higher than that of other submitting bids as well as the Reserve Price, the Successful Bid Price shall be the highest of the other bids or the Reserve Price, whichever is higher, plus the bid increment amount decided as appropriate by the Auctioneer (but no more than the maximum price indicated by the Absentee Bid), and that person shall be the Successful Bidder. In such cases, a purchase and sale contract shall be entered into (determining the Successful Bidder) in the same manner as a contract entered into at the site of an Action.
8. If there are multiple bids of the same amount for the same Lots submitted by Absentee Bid, the first bid received by SBI shall have priority. If multiple valid bids with the same maximum amount are received at the same time, a decision shall be made at a later time by random selection.
9. SBI may, at its sole discretion, refuse submission or withdrawal of Absentee Bid without stating a reason. SBI shall not be liable even if the notice of refusal is not received by the party submitting or withdrawing Absentee Bid.
10. If descriptions or explanations in Catalogs are changed, the submission or withdrawal of Absentee Bid shall be deemed to have been made in accordance with the modified descriptions or explanations. SBI shall provide a notice of such changes to the reasonable extent, but it shall not be liable even if the notice of such changes is not received by a party submitting or withdrawing Absentee Bid.
11. If a party submitting Absentee Bid is a Successful Bidder, SBI shall promptly notify the party to that effect.

7.
