All property is sold "AS IS" without any representations or warranties by us as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, the correctness of the catalog or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, frame, provenance, exhibitions, literature or historical relevance of any property and no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, whether made in the catalog, an advertisement, a bill of sale, or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability.

Prospective Buyers should inspect the property before buying to determine its condition, size, and whether or not it has been repaired or restored.
In certain circumstances, 55 Penn may publish in the catalog the history of ownership of a work of art if such information contributes to scholarship or is otherwise well known and assists in distinguishing the work of art. However, the identity of the seller or previous owners may not be disclosed for a variety of reasons. For example, such information may be excluded to accommodate a seller's request for confidentiality or because the identity of prior owners is unknown given the age of the work of art.
An exhibition of the auction property will be held during the dates indicated on the 55 Penn website. There you will have the opportunity to view, inspect and evaluate the property yourself, or with the help of a 55 Penn specialist.
Notices amend the catalog description of a lot after our catalog has been published on the 55 Penn and Invaluable websites. Please take note of them.
