This is Pennsylvania State Law and applies to anyone picking up items, regardless if you live or bid on the items outside the state of Pennsylvania.
Condition: Prospective buyers are strongly advised to examine personally any property in which they are interested, before the auction takes place. If a bidder is unable to view an item in person, they are responsible for obtaining/requesting a condition report and/or additional photographs prior to bidding to determine an article's condition, size and any other pertinent information. We strive to be fair and forthright with our descriptions and condition reports, however bidders must acknowledge that antique items often show normal signs of use and wear, which might not be specified in a condition report. If you have very particular taste, it is advisable that you inspect items in person, as your definition of condition may be more exacting than a specialist could have time to verify.
