The sale will be made in cash and conducted in Euros (€).
The buyers will pay, in addition to the bids, a fee of 30% VAT included.
The fact that the Client places a bid irrevocably implies acceptance
of the sale costs.
Lots in which the SVV or one of its partners has a financial interest.
In accordance with the law, the information given in the catalogue
is the responsibility of SAS Claude Aguttes and its expert, taking
into account the corrections announced at the time of the presentation
of the object and recorded in the sale's minutes. The
attributions have been established taking into account scientific
and artistic knowledge at the date of the sale.
All lots can be viewed at the exhibitions or on request to our staff,
however, in this period of confinement, the photos are considered
to be the exhibition. The reproductions of the works in the catalogue
are as faithful as possible, although differences in colour
or tone may occur. Dimensions are given as an indication only.
The state of conservation of the works is not always specified. The
absence of details does not mean that the lot is in good condition.
When condition is specified, this is done only as an indication. Nothing
replaces the examination of the lots by the buyer. However,
our teams are at the disposal of potential buyers to provide them
with additional photos, videos and/or condition reports so that they
can form their own opinion. Restorations or accidents may not be
visible on the photos provided. No claims will be accepted regarding
possible restorations or accidents once the auction has taken
place. The condition reports requested from SAS Claude Aguttes
and the expert prior to the sale are given for information only. They
are not binding and cannot be the basis for any legal claim.
The French text is the official text which will be used in the event
of a dispute. Descriptions in English and dimensions in inches are
given as an indication only and cannot be the basis for a claim.
The bidder may place bids at his convenience, from the opening
of the sale and during the entire period of the sale until the last
minutes. If the bidder loses a lot during the last minutes of the auction,
he will not receive an information e-mail. It is therefore always
recommended to follow the sale during the final auctions or to
enter your maximum bid. The system will carry them for the bidder
up to his maximum bid without him being behind his screen. The
lots are numbered according to an order of passage which corresponds
to the order of the "expected" end of the auction. A provisional
end time is indicated for each lot in the sale. Please note that
bidding may continue beyond this time as the timer restarts by one
minute for each new bid placed during the last 60 seconds. The
bidder with the highest bid will be the winner.
By placing a bid, the bidders assume personal responsibility for
paying the auction price, increased by the costs to be paid by
the buyer and any taxes or duties due. Unless there is a written
agreement with SAS Claude Aguttes, prior to the sale, mentioning
that the bidder is acting as a proxy for a third party identified and
approved by SAS Claude Aguttes, the bidder is deemed to be
acting in his own name. We remind our sellers that it is forbidden
to bid directly on lots belonging to them. In the event of a double
bid recognised by the auctioneer due to a possible malfunction of
the platform, the lot will be put back up for sale, with all the amateurs
present being able to bid on this second auction.
Aguttes shall not be held responsible for any malfunction of the
platform or interruption of the connection during a sale that may
prevent a buyer from bidding.
Online sales end according to a timer indicated on each lot. SAS
Claude Aguttes cannot be held responsible for a time difference
or any other malfunction. SAS Claude Aguttes cannot be held responsible
for the interruption or slowing down of a connection and
cannot be held responsible for the closing of the auction.
