As conditions are no longer added in the description text of our International Fine Arts auctions, prospective bidders should inspect all property before bidding to determine condition, size, and whether or not it has been repaired or restored. Absence of condition are not indications that lots are flawless or without normal signs of wear consistent with age. As a service to prospective bidders, condition reports are available on all items.
