California Design and Fine Art


Preview: October 10 to 13, 11-6pm Auction: Sunday, October 14, 12pm Pacific Design Center Suite B229 8687 Melrose Avenue West Hollywood

As LAMA continues to celebrate

our fifteenth anniversary, we are delighted to share with you our first catalogue dedicated to California Art, Design and Craft. In this sale you will not only find works by internationally recognized artists like Hockney, Eames and Natzler; you will also see a selection of diverse artists that when taken together make up the unique patchwork that helped define California in the Twentieth Century. The inspiration for this catalogue was an article called “California Modern” by Alvin Lustig which interestingly was first published in October 1947, exactly sixty years ago. It is reprinted here in it’s entirety and is perhaps even more relevant today than ever before. Among the Fine Art highlights is an excellent selection of works by Ed Ruscha, and Richard Diebenkorn; two artists that are indelibly inked by California. But also, you may notice works by Warhol, Kelly and Albers. None of whom will be mistaken for Californians, however, each created many important works here. Judy Chicago’s landmark work “Car Hood” is dramatic visually, but breathtaking historically. It not only defines the artist’s early motivation, but is also fast becoming an icon for an entire movement. Also spotlighted in the sale is a selection of works by teachers and graduates from Otis College of Art and Design; an influential institution that has shaped the art scene in Los Angeles and beyond for nearly 90 years. A stunning dining table and chairs by Sam Maloof is just one of many extraordinary examples of studio woodwork. We are, of course, equally excited about showing unique studio works in clay by legendary ceramicists and artists such as the Natzlers, Laura Andreson, Ken Price and John Mason. To help shape this sale, we asked Gerard O’Brien of Reform to co-curate the selections. Gerard’s enthusiasm for even the most obscure artisans is immediately evident when one visits his gallery of California Design. We thank him for his dedication to this growing segment of Modernism. We would also like to extend our very special thanks to our photographers Mario de Lopez and John Nelson, Elaine Lustig Cohen, Roz Bock at Sam Maloof’s workshop, Samuel Hoi and everyone at Otis College of Art and Design. — Peter Loughrey


California Modern Alvin Lustig


here are diverse influences acting on Southern California, which, if properly synthesized, could produce great design.

We, who live and work in California, share the sense of exhilaration and growth that charges the very air. What is happing here? Is it just another boom following perpetual boom? Will a great and noble architecture raise its head to the sun or will we glut ourselves with cheap plaster husks? Will the land sprawl away from us into planless confusion? Do we as designers and architects have any special opportunities or responsibilities to ourselves or the community? Is this the “new world” really getting itself built, or are these the latest gestures of a tinseled unreality? Is our search for the New to end in great monuments of creative originality or mere architectural sensationalism? It is common practice today to place the word “California” in front of almost any vagrant word and thus achieve a magic combination hopefully intended to make the heart jump and the purse strings fly open. The word “California” alone produces a wide range of emotional response, ranging from a snarl of contempt to ecstatic eye-rolling. I shall deal in this article with “California Modern” or any other phrase that implies something unique or special about modern design in this area. I maintain that something flies into your mind when the magic phrase “California Modern” is uttered, and I intend to examine this vision. It probably ranges from a picture of some of the best domestic architecture in the world to an overstuffed overripe kind of lushness that is particularly localized in this area. It is certainly no secret that this area is particularly well suited for the development of modern architecture. The climate, the freedom from tradition, the heightened sense of life – all of these factors contribute to make a unique architectural opportunity. Is here, however, developing in this specific region a mature architecture reflecting the best features of the area, or are we being inundated by heavy-handed perversions of badly digested basic principles? I think we can safely say that both processes are taking place. Unfortunately, however, the majority of the work is still, at best, a rather hectic scrambling of clichés and ill-digested forms. That quality in our environment which gives us freedom also limits us by failing to impose disciplines. One of the strongest factors in California’s favor is its freedom from European tradition. This lack of continuity with Western civilization is also one of the qualities deplored by the outsider. We lose the rigor and economy of thinking and acting that has characterized European thought and, reveling in our new-found freedom, often commit excesses that are somewhat horrifying. It is impossible for an area as young and unfettered as this to avoid making extravagant gestures, some of which do not come off. However, if we intend to take full advantage of our opportunity and are honestly seeking a real and even great architecture we must stop a moment and take stock.

Most of our excesses can be traced directly to an insufficient understanding of the basic aims and tendencies in modern architecture. It is not the intention of this paper to attempt to trace the development of this movement or to evaluate the contribution of the great pioneers such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, but rather to goad the reader into a more discerning selfcriticism and recognition of his responsibilities. My theme is that no matter how wondrous the physical opportunities are, without a clear understanding of the basic principles and even conflicts inherent in the movement, nothing but architectural harsh will be produced. Our opportunity lies in synthesis, and synthesis demands understanding of all of the factors involved. It is probably true that the form modern architecture has taken in rest of the world is not quite what we seek here; nevertheless, we are in no position to take liberties with it at least until we understand the factors involved. The prevalent willingness to “try anything”, instead of becoming a liberating force, often only produces a form of architectural sensationalism. We are in no danger of producing a sterile and barren architecture. Our threat lies in the other direction. Reacting to the exuberance and richness of the area we are inclined to encase poorly articulated skeletons in heavy surface effects that have nothing to do with design integrity. This is true whether it is a chair or a building we are examining. It is certainly true that the skeletal approach which has characterized most good European design is probably not sufficient for us psychologically. At the same time we must at least understand the necessity for honestly revealed structure which is one of the prerequisites of good design. In our anxiety to appear sufficiently “rich” we camouflage our bad skeletons with endless textures and materials. Poor craftsmanship, paucity of imagination and an inability to think simply and structurally are covered with a heavy gravy of surface effects. We do want rich and handsome buildings; but lightly and honestly expressed structure is the only skeleton on which the flesh hangs well. During the last seventy-five years there has been evolving a concept of building which has placed human needs, structural honesty and a new understanding of space before any other stylistic considerations. This development has been diverse and often conflicting. Vital personalities and pioneers have made their great contributions to the swelling stream of a growing tradition. This new tradition, at first either denied or ignored, has emerged as the basis of a new architecture throughout the world. Like all rebellion, this development has often been self-conscious and even incomplete. We in California, especially the younger designers, have the great opportunity to inherit this treasure of beliefs, ideas, and discoveries and to carry further their logical development. We cannot take these researches for granted or dismiss them with superficial understanding. If we are going to develop an architecture worthy of the terrain and the potential living pattern, we must be stern in our self-criticism and ask ourselves many questions.

Are these forms we are using integrated and honestly conditioned by the problem we are solving, or are they simply the residue of past solutions? Is this design in front of me just fashion, gesture and expediency, or is it at least an attempt at reflection of the organic quality of nature itself? We all can ask ourselves these questions, whether we are designers of buildings or chairs. Although I am asking for a bit of soul-searching on the part of the designers, it is also true that some self-scrutiny would do no harm to the manufacturers, especially in the field of home furnishings. With only a few exceptions, the planning and production of furniture in the local area is done with remarkable shortsightedness. Eastern designers are brazenly stolen, thickened up and sold as “California” modern. Designs just “grow”, and rarely is a trained designer consulted. With the East languishing for California designs, we continually affront them with half-baked reflections of their own work. As to any sort of coordinated program of research and design, such as made the California clothing fashions a world-wide influence, so far these is nothing visible. This is not true of ceramics and textiles. Although they are usually produced by individuals or small concerns, they have made a distinct mark and often represent California at its best. These small industries reflect a care for craftsmanship and design quality which is rarely seen in the more ambitious manufacturing. If we truly digested the basic principles, we are then in a position to synthesize and add to their growth. California offers every opportunity for this growth. Everything about it is attuned to a magnificent flowering of architecture. All the elements that architecture was denied in the past are new sought by the new architecture in just that region where they abound. Sun, light, air, vista and natural growth surrounds us. If we can measure the richness of these natural advantages against an intellectually clarified understanding of the precepts of modern architecture, then will we produce something truly unique and worth of the name California.

Purchased from the artist through the R olf Nelson Gallery, 1 9 6 5



n the company of Billy Al Bengston, Ken Price, Ed Ruscha, Peter Alexander and DeWain Valentine, Judy Chicago was one of the few women in the California post-war art community. Known for her feminist imagery (often depicting vaginas, testicles and other body parts), she intended to be direct in her artworks. Shortly after completing her graduate degree at UCLA in 1964, she took spraypainting lessons from Percy Jeffries. In using this new medium she was able to transform her feminist imagery onto this very masculine object – a Corvair car hood. “In Car Hood, which I made at auto body school, the vaginal form, penetrated by a phallic arrow, was mounted on the “masculine” hood of a car, a very clear symbol of my state of mind at this time”. (From Through the Flower: My Struggle as a Woman Artist, Judy Chicago, Doubleday, 1975, pg. 36-37.)

At first the Nevelson influence was clear, but guided by Milon, her work changed to an original approach that was completely new. By 1965 she had gallery representation for her work in Los Angeles. In 1968 a pair of doors were accepted in the California Design Ten exhibition. Provenance: M abel

The following quote is taken from Craftsman Lifestyle, the Gentle Revolution which was the final official act of the “California Design” exhibitions. “I really didn’t expect to crack the world of art. I had an idea I’d buy radio chassis and make cabinets for them. That turned out to be too expensive so I bought a lathe, which was

all I could afford, and began to turn bowls. I was thinking of it from a busi ness point of view. I planned to design and manufacture them, but then Edgar Kaufmann chose my work for the Good Design Show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1949 and I discovered exhibition was free publicity, so that’s the way I went. I just kept buying one machine at a time until I could make anything I wanted out of wood.” Provenance: William

De Swart, a Dutch émigré, arrived in California in 1929. His work explores themes of relationships, religion and nature. However, his experimentation with new materials also lead to his confidence in abstracted forms. As Mike McGee put it best in a 1986 retrospective on the artists work at the Laguna Art Museum, “His passionate quest for individualistic freedom of expression underlines all of his work.”

After arriving on the California scene early with his rope chair in the late 40’s Martiné used the California Design 10 exhibition of 1968 to re-emerge. Sadly the market did not respond to this master craftsman’s designs and this chair was never produced. This chair is a testament to the grace and refinement of Martiné’s craftsman genius.

These early thin stock bases had a tendency to crack at the stress point where the rod base was drilled to accommodate screws for mounting, as a result the base was quickly modified to the standard “X” base.

The follownig four lots are original attraction posters printed for use in Disneyland park. The park first openend in 1955 in Anaheim, California. The large format of these posters was designed to attract a park visitor’s attention from long distances. Each production run was only produced once. Reproductions of these graphic posters can still be seen around the park, but most have been redesigned and resized.

292 Disneyana “Space Station X-1” 1955 54”h x 36” An orginal opening day attraction, this feature of the park was only open for a few of the early years thus making the poster one of the rarest of all the attraction posters. $6,000-8,000

293 Disneyana “Rocket Jets” 1967 54”h x 36” Originally named “Astro Jets”, the attraction and the poster were redesigned in 1967 to reflect the dominance of jet airplane technology in travel. $5,000-7,000

294 Disneyana “Adventure thru Inner Space” 1967 54”h x 36” This attraction, which featured a trip on a miniaturized “Atommobile”, through a tiny snowflake into the world of the Atom was presented by Monsanto and featured the tag line “Where Miracles from Molecules are Happening Every Day” $5,000-7,000

295 Disneyana “Haunted Mansion” 1969 54”h x 36” One of the most famous of all the attraction posters was designed by Mark Davis, a Disney Animator who also created much of the designs for the attraction itself. Anyone who has been on the ride will remember the last line heard on the “doom” buggies - “Beware of hitchhiking ghosts.” $6,000-8,000

298 K.E.M. Weber “Airline” chair Airline Chair Company, designed 1934 for Walt Disney Studios 31”h x 25”w x 30”d

This Streamline Moderne chair is Weber’s most iconic design.

Literature: Design

Having designed the furniture for Walt Disney’s executive office suite, as well as all of the furnishings and buildings themselves for his Animators on the Disney Studios lot, Weber’s newly formed company the “Airline Chair Company” attempted to market this chair for mass production. Unfortunately, the knockdown low cost chair proved too expensive to produce. Ultimately, the only chairs made were the 300 for Disney’s projection rooms, lounges and executive suites; a few other slightly different versions exist from other later commissions. Disney gave or sold many examples to employees in the late 1960’s or 70’s.

309 Raymond Loewy & Associates Avanti “R-1” sports coupe Studebaker, designed 1961-62 This car is #777 of 2,416 made for the 1963 model year. $25,000-30,000

The year was 1961 and in a small modernist bungalow house in Palm Springs, California, the Studebaker Avanti with it’s new sleek Euro look, was designed in less than two weeks by a four man design team headed by one of the founders of the industrial design profession, designer Raymond Loewy. Working in a rented house turned into a secret design studio far from the prying eyes of Detroit stylists was Loewy’s small design team consisting of experienced designers and former Loewy employees, John Ebstein and Bob Andrews, as well as a young design student named Tom Kellogg, newly graduated from the Pasadena Art Center. The small design team quietly gathered in Palm Springs over the college student soaked atmosphere of a Palm Springs summer break and sequestered themselves in this house leased solely for the purpose of developing Loewy’s new advanced car design. Each team member had a role: Andrews and Kellogg handled the sketching, Ebstein oversaw the project, and Loewy served as the creative director, offering input on the design. In an amazing feat unequaled in automotive history to this day, the car was conceived of and fully designed with a clay model produced in 14 days by the four designers. Soon put into production by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend Indiana, the Avanti was hand-built at the factory in extremely low numbers for only two years, producing only a 1963 and 1964 model. The Avanti’s advanced luxury styling was unlike anything seen on American streets. New design details included the asymmetrical power bulge on the front hood, a fin-less sculpted body with virtually no chrome trim and no visible front grill, setting the tone for the next wave of sports coupes was the Avanti’s long hood and a short trunk. The advanced interior design features include aircraft styled instrumentation, concealed vanity tray, seat belts, ultra wide doors, and a fully padded safety dash. The first of it’s kind and handcrafted of 183 separate panels of molded fiberglass, the unusual “coke bottle” styling of the body was said to be partially inspired by the four designers interest in the bikini clad girls seen at nearby resorts while working on the shape of the Avanti. Its performance package is powered by the original powerful Jet - Thrust R1 engine, a high-compression V-8 engine topped by a super fast four-barrel carburetor and high speed cams. Driving the new 1963 Avanti coupe at the Salt Lake Speed Flats, racer Andy Granatelli set a total of 24 new speed and endurance records for a stock American production car. By driving in excess of 168 miles per hour on the Flats, the Avanti became the fastest American car in production. It was also called America’s safest car when it was reviewed in the press because among the many safety features built into the Avanti, and for the first time on an American car, were front wheel disc brakes, a built-in steel roll bar over the driver, mid body gas tank, fully padded dash and interior and a light-weight aerodynamic shaped fiberglass body. Offered is a completely original, un-modified 1963 R1 Avanti.


Otis College of Art and Design


tis College of Art and Design has left a distinctive mark on Southern California by training generations of artists and designers who have been in the vanguard of the cultural and entrepreneurial life of the region. Cross-fertilization between a region and creative education has rarely been this continuous and this successful.

The Otis Legacy Founded in 1918, Otis is Los Angeles’ first professional school of visual arts training. Its 88 years have been as fruitful, innovative, and eventful as the region’s own march into the future. But no matter what the name —Otis Institute of the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science & Art (1918), Otis Art Institute (1936), The Los Angeles County Art Institute (1954), The Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles County (1961), Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design (1978), and finally upon its severance from any affiliation, Otis College of Art and Design (1991)—the mission remains the same: to prepare students to enrich the world through their creativity, skills and vision. Over the years, its thousands of graduates have significantly influenced fine arts and design locally—and their cultural, economic, and social contributions continue to resonate not just in Los Angeles, but increasingly around the world. The College’s formative impact on Los Angeles and Southern California is most remarkable. 1918 was the last year of the Great War, also one of the last years of a fledgling Los Angeles. From the moment General Harrison Gray Otis, publisher of the Los Angeles Times, deeded his Spanish Moorish mansion and grounds to Los Angeles County “for the advancement of art in the West,” Otis’ interdisciplinary curriculum set a course in step with the city’s own transition from dusty village to international center of creativity. By 1924, Otis was the largest art school west of Chicago and Los Angeles was a boomtown the likes of which the world had never seen. The film industry, soon to be joined by other creative endeavors and recreational reformers—a world of new enterprise, expertise, and lifestyle—was fueled by innovation Otis helped awaken. And the city provided Otis in turn with ideas and a highly diverse student body.

As Los Angeles grew and changed, so did Otis. New industries—from aerospace to automobile design, from the toy industry trendsetters to digital pioneers—blossomed in Los Angeles, nurtured by its daring, its liveliness, its lust for excitement and renewal. Here, these industries found creative capital benefiting their own prospects, and over and over, Otis—always quick to adapt its curriculum—delivered the design talent pool to advance these imaginative endeavors. While Otis’ achievements in the design fields are undisputed, fine arts is the heart and soul of Otis, and artistic innovation is the hallmark of the school. For nine decades, the professional faculty has trained influential visual artists who helped launch contemporary art movements. The College’s impact on art cannot be overstated. The California Ceramics Revolution, started by Peter Voulkos and John Mason at Otis in the 1950s, transformed delicate craft into hefty sculptural presences, and stimulated the fertile Ferus Gallery scene of the 1960s. Prominent artists associated with Southern California’s Light and Space movement attended the school, as well as leaders of the seminal conceptual art world of the 1970s. Moreover, Otis nurtured significant Latino artists and the mural group “Los Four” also originated at Otis in the 1970s.

Alumni Otis has trained diverse innovators that have changed the way we see and experience entertainment, art, technology, recreation, and related creative fields. And like the metropolis’ growth and embrace of the new, Otis’ alumni have mirrored and continue to mirror the changing face of the city. Diversity is highly valued among the faculty, staff, trustees and students of the Otis community. They share the same vision to move the school forward—drawing inspiration from the students’ diverse cultures to stimulate ideas that drive an emerging global economy. Resourcefulness, optimism, and a drive to work and succeed are palpable on Otis’ campuses and among Otis alumni. Iconic and influential California artists like John Altoon, Billy Al Bengston, Stan Bitters, Robert Irwin, and Ken Price attended Otis in the 1940s and 1950s and alumni from the 1960s and 1970s Bryan Hunt, Barry Le Va, Roberto Gil de Montes, Richard Pettibone,

Masamai Teraoka, Bruce Yonemoto and MacArthur Prize-winner Kerry James Marshall set the stage for a host of cutting-edge contemporary artists to explore the landscape of popular culture and the significant impact of identity, politics and social policy at the intersection of art and society. More recent graduates like Alison Saar, Sandow Birk, Tami Demaree, Gajin Fujita, Ruben Ochoa, Patssi Valdez, Jeffrey Vallance, and Mario Ybarra exhibit locally, nationally, and internationally, and their cross-cultural contemporary work points both to the diversity of inspiration in Southern California and to the opportunities and advantages of an Otis education.

LAMA is pleased to present the following 23 lots by these distinguished teachers and former alumni of Otis College of Art and Design.

In 1966 Fidel Danielli reviewed these works in Art Forum and admired Pettibone’s “strong single minded presentation.” He further suggests “The Warhol gambit of endless repetition of a motif is the obvious source, but the units are cooly abstract and poetic for all their factualism... one enters into the very substance of the subjects, and thus into a dream.”

t is certainly the most practical city car yet designed, because of its unbeatable maneuverability. With imaginative and forceful promotion, there is every possibility that the Davis will become a permanent part of the American scene.” Motor Trend, August 1950 Enter Gary Davis, the year is 1945. Davis, a 40 year natural salesman turned builder of cars for such A-list celebrities as Greta Garbo, had a dream to build a car to quench the appetite of young Americans searching for flash and excitement in the years after the war – but with a budget. Using all of his charm he put his best marketing effort forward and unveiled a “tri-wheeled, streamlined dream car” and called it the “Californian”. With the promise of producing 50 cars a day and advertised to sell for $995, Davis set the stage for raising funds to open the Davis Motor Company in Van Nuys, California.

374 “Davis” Devan Convertable spectacular vintage three-wheel car Hand crafted by Davis Motor Company, Van Nuys, California, 1947-50 One of 17 total cars built (including three of other body styles) Painted polished aluminum body, original V-8 engine, custom double white-wall front tire, removable top, and a truly unique suspension. Odometer reads 6,352 miles. Sold with extensive documentation on the Davis history, vintage photographs, videos, magazine articles and advertising material. $60,000-80,000

Fast forward to 20 months later. On November 12, 1947, Davis reveled his dream to the world with the prototype car called “Davis” (he called it “Baby”) at the Ambassador Hotel in Hollywood, California. Davis and his team of designers knew they had designed a car to possibly crack the toughest competition in the American auto market. This first prototype was seen all over the country. Just a few months after it was unveiled at the Ambassador Hotel it was driven by Davis in the January 1, 1948 Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena. Later it was flown East to Philadelphia where it went on display at Gimbel’s, as well as trips to New York and Chicago where it drew huge crowds at every turn. At a post-war time when Americans were craving a new fresh design, this “Jet airline” styled was the car of the future. With an office off Sunset Boulevard, Davis was in good company with Raymond Loewy’s design firm nearby. Loewy, having just designed the 1946 Studebaker, was reported to have loaned his lushly furnished office to Davis to pitch prospective buyers.

18 months later a group of 4 designers and 7 engineers, who mostly came from aircraft factory backgrounds, had had built at least 10 cars and were ready for the public (refer to factory photograph). The Davis, with its cutting edge sleek and lightweight Aluminum body offered fuel efficiency (with its advertised 35-50 mpg), as well its top speed of 116 mph. The front wheel suspension remained unchanged from the first prototype with its single front wheel providing not only stability as its much common two-wheeled competitors but offers unparalleled handling. The Davis carried a Hercules 4-cylinder engine with a 108” wheel base. The car sits 56” high, 72” wide, and weighed 1,385 pounds with the Hercules engine. Because each car was hand made, they differ slightly. This car being offered here has a Ford V-8 engine with stick shift transmission; similar to the original “Californian” engine. Some other features of this remarkable car included an unparalleled turning radius, concealed headlight, a removable top (advertised to be removed in 15 seconds), SUSPENSION, as well as “Push-button doors”, considered a luxurious appointment in 1948. To satisfy the curious public about a three-wheeled car, Motor Trend remarked “Gary Davis drove the car himself at exhibitions, bouncing over exposed railroad tracks at 60mph with his hands off the steering wheel, going into abrupt, sharp turns at such high speeds that the test track was lined with black streaks of rubber, spinning through fast figure 8’s that left his spectators gasping – and convinced. Those three wheels were on the ground to stay!” “A custom built sports car suitable for mass production.” So, why did it not go into production? In April 1949, the entire original design group, and other ex-employees filed suit against Gary Davis for back pay and car dealers convinced the district attorney to investigate the Davis Motor Company. In May 1949 the factory closed and Gary Davis is charged with grand theft, with its assets to be sold at auction to settle tax claims. Eventually he was indicted on 28 counts and spent 18 months in jail, with probation terms of not to build a car. An article in Road & Track (December 1970) explains that Davis had sold franchises with the right to sell the Davis. The dealers in turn pre-sold the cars, not realizing that their car

was from 12-18 months away from production. When the customers complained and demanded their money back, the dealers, whom many had spent the customer’s money to buy the franchise, turned on Davis. In another article, speculation surfaced that the original “Californian” was actually Joel Thorne’s (the 1940 race car driver) custom car that Davis “borrowed”, wrecked and bought from Thorne for $50. From this Californian, the Davis was conceived. All in all 17 or 18 “pilot models” were built, one of which as a “Jeep” version given to the US Army for testing, and another was a sedan. To date it is believed that 13 versions of this car are known to have survived. We are pleased to present the “most unforgettable three-wheeled car” and share its Hollywood story.

Those holding a valid California State Resale License must register before each sale and present their valid resale number. No purchases will be released until all sales tax requirements are satisfied.

Estimates & Reserves The estimates printed after each lot should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as a prediction of final selling prices. Many of the lots offered for sale carry a reserve and are confidential. This is a minimum price at which the seller has agreed to let the auctioneer sell the property.

Condition EVERYTHING IS SOLD IN “AS-IS” CONDITION. No statement regarding condition of any item, whether it is made orally at the auction or at any other time or in writing in this catalogue shall be deemed to be a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to inspect all goods prior to the sale. We strongly encourage all bidders to request a condition report on any item before bidding. All electrical items are sold for decorative value only and should be assumed not to be working. All measurements are approximate. Photographs of any lots not illustrated can be found on our website www.lamodern. com

Collection and Storage All lots must be removed from the auction showroom by 12:00 pm on June 6th.

In addition, the auction prices realized will be posted the day after the sale on our website. Do not rely on any auction results (prices realized) unless published on www.lamodern.com or as provided directly by L.A. Modern Auctions.

Absentee/Phone bids are on a first come first serve basis; thus, we encourage you to submit your form ASAP. If identical absentee bids are submitted, the earliest received will take precedence. The number of phone lines available are limited so please submit your phone requests early. On all absentee/phone bid forms, please leave a valid credit card number with expiration date; a deposit of 25% may be required for all absentee and phone bids. Please note that we only accept credit card payments in person. For those absentee/phone bidders who can not come in personally to pay, we will only accept either a certified check or wire transfer as a method of payment (see “Payment” notice). The party responsible for submitting the absentee or phone bid is solely responsible for the payment in full of the total invoice. We will not make any changes to an invoice. Should a dispute arise after the sale, our sale records are conclusive. We are not responsible for failure to execute a bid and have the right to reject any bid. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. Should an item be withdrawn, the auctioneer will make an announcement at the time the lot would have been put up for sale. In addition, the auctioneer may add lots not previously listed in the catalogue or addendum. If the buyer does not comply with all of the notices to buyers, Modern Auctions, Inc, reserves the right to cancel the sale, hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price and buyer’s premium, retain any deposit, and resell the property privately or at auction without further notice. In the latter, the defaulting buyer will be held responsible for all incurred expenses, such as warehouse and transportation costs, commissions, incidentals, and shall be liable for payment of any deficiency in the purchase price. This is strictly enforced. We reserve the right to assess a late charge of 1.5% of the total purchase price per month is payment is not made in accordance with any of these conditions of sale.

Guarantee The authenticity of every item offered for sale is guaranteed. Modern Auctions, Inc. warrants only the authorship of an item (as printed in RED type) and does not guarantee the condition, age, or any identifying characteristic used by Modern Auctions, Inc, in any descriptions such as color, method of construction, and type of materials. Any lot using the terms “attributed”, “attribution,” “in the style of,” “in the manner of,” or “after” does not qualify for our guarantee. In addition, the buyer assumes responsibility of reading all addendums and posted corrections to the catalogue prior to bidding. Should the authenticity of an item be disputed after a sale, it is the buyer’s responsibility to provide written documentation or conclusive opinion of a mutually agreed upon independent expert that the item in question is not as stated in the catalogue. In the event of an error, Modern Auctions, Inc. will reimburse the buyer for no more than the hammer price plus the buyer’s premium and only after the item is returned to the original point of sale in the condition in which it was sold. Taxes, packing, shipping and storage costs will not be reimbursed.
