and recorded in the sale report. The attributions have been established

invited to examine the items that may interest them before the auction.
A prior exhibition allows them to see the condition of the items for sale.
The state of conservation of the works is not specified in the catalog.
Potential buyers, if they do not wish to come to the auction, may request
additional photos, videos and/or condition reports. Requests must be
made 24 hours prior to the sale. The reproductions of the works in the
catalog are as accurate as possible, although differences in color or
tone may occur. Dimensions are given as an indication only. No claims
will be accepted after the auction. The French text is the official text
which will be used in case of dispute. Descriptions in other languages
and dimensions in inches are given as an indication only and cannot
be the basis for a claim. No claims will be accepted for any restorations
or accidents after the auction. The condition reports requested from
SAS Claude Aguttes and the expert before the sale are given as an
indication. They do not engage their responsibilities and cannot be the
cause of a legal claim. They are expressed to facilitate the inspection
of the lot by the potential buyer and remain subject to his personal
appreciation. The absence of any indication in the catalog, written
or verbal condition reports, does not imply that an item is free of any
present, past or repaired defects. Conversely, the mention of some
defects does not imply the absence of all other defects.
The highest and last bidder will be the successful bidder. In the event
of a double bid recognized by the auctioneer, the lot will be put up for
sale again and all the amateurs present will be able to bid for the second
auction. By bidding, the bidders assume the personal responsibility
to pay the auction price, increased by the expenses to be paid by
the buyer and by any tax or duty due. Except in the case of a written
agreement with SAS Claude Aguttes, prior to the sale, mentioning that
the bidder is acting as an agent of 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 the
lots belonging to them.
