Founded in 1946 by three brothers, Hy, Ben, and Bernard, Hammerman Bros. was a manufacturing jeweler that offered fine quality jewelry to retailers across the country. Experiencing much success, they decided to expand to include watch production and boutique items, as well as diamond cutting. Following in their tradition of exquisitely fine jewelry, Hammerman Bros. diamonds are often valued around one million dollars. Hammerman Bros. is still family-owned and operated, and their jewelry is sold not only in the United States, but also in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

JAR

Known as the “Faberge of our time,” Joel Arthur Rosenthal gets most of his inspiration from nature. Meticulously matched and set pave gemstones and fluid, curving lines characterize his work. Butterflies, flowers and artistic designs display his exquisite craftsmanship. He is also known for his exclusivity—producing only about 70-80 pieces per year—all designed for specific clients.

LALAOUNIS

Born in Athens in 1920, Ilias Lalaounis was the fourth generation in a family line of goldsmiths and watchmakers. With a passion for history, he began studying the art of ancient Greece, and it was during Greece’s post-war recovery years that he decided to breathe new life into Greek museum artifacts. He wanted to transform them into jewelry by reviving age old techniques while also introducing the use of modern technology. Lalaounis found his calling in high karat gold as he felt it to be the “most human material” and it was through this medium that he expressed his inexhaustible creativity and achieved international recognition.

PALM BEACH FINE JEWELRY

LUNA FELIX GOLDSMITH

Luna Luna Felix is a fine jewelry designer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She hand fabricates her exquisite jewelry creating one of a kind pieces with some of the earths most precious and unusual gems. Her pieces have become very recognizable for their application of the ancient and precise technique of granulation as well as the colorful and unique gems she chooses to showcase. “Each woman should celebrate the glorious passage of their lives. Poets write the words, I set the poetry in motion by sealing each woman’s vision of herself in gold and precious stones.”

MISANI

Established in 1965 in Milan, Misani’s recognizable style is inspired by the ancient technique of hammering yellow gold, combining this with the experimental use of unusual materials to create pieces of jewelry that are unique yet timeless. Misani jewelry does not go unnoticed: a statement of originality, each piece expresses and magnifies the personality of who wears it.

NICHOLAS VARNEY

A family history fueled by a passion for design and aesthetics, Nicholas Varney, a jewelry artisan carries this spirit in his work. Worldwide travels throughout his youth inspired a sense of creativity and seeing the beautiful in the unusual. His designs incorporate whimsical elements into elegant statement pieces meant to be worn and not tucked away in a vault. Varney has been aptly named as one of “Five Jewelers Working Today That You Will Be Collecting Tomorrow” by Forbes.

POMELLATO

The work of this Milanese firm, founded in 1967, serves as a prime example of high fashion jewelry that does not translate into a loss of quality. Known for their straightforward yet stunning designs, the brand has been embraced by fashionistas and celebrities on a global scale.

SEAMAN SCHEPPS

An immigrant’s son, who grew up in the tenements of New York’s Lower East Side, Seaman Schepps established his reputation by designing exclusive pieces mixing unique ideas, bold colors and sharp textures. After a brief stint in California, the Schepps family moved back to New York where Schepps opened his 6th Avenue salon. When the stock market crashed in 1929, Schepps, like many of his clients, lost everything. With a remodeled business plan and renewed vigor, he reopened his doors on Madison Avenue in 1934 where he served clients such as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Duchess of Windsor, and members of the Du Pont, Mellon and Rockefeller families. Although Schepps passed on in 1972, his namesake house continues to attract collectors looking for jewelry of splendor and singular style.

TONY DUQUETTE

Starting off as a movie and interior designer then moving into jewelry, Tony Duquette created one-of-a kind jewelry pieces full of colorful, unique gemstones and bold designs. His theatrical jewelry has been on display in a one-man show at the Louvre and even adorned the Duchess of Windsor. Embodying his philosophy “More Is More”, his business and design partner Hutton Wilkinson continues his legacy of jewelry design stating. “If it’s not fabulous, it’s meaningless” – Hutton Wilkinson.

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS

Starting with a marriage between two families both intimately involved with the jewelry arts, this Parisian firm founded in 1898 has created a unique character all its own. Its exclusive pieces have been eagerly collected by royalty and celebrity alike. Credited with many innovations in construction and design, this master jeweler is also known for having the highest standards for their gems. Only using stones of the very best quality and rarity, a jewel by Van Cleef & Arpels is viewed first as art and then accessory.

GUIDE FOR PROSPECTIVE SELLERS Evaluation of Property If you have property you wish to sell, please call our Consignment Department at 312.280.1212 to arrange for a consultation. At that time, you may make an appointment to bring your property or photographs, along with any other pertinent information, to Hindman LLC and we will be happy to provide you with complimentary estimates and advice. If you have a large collection, an appointment may be made to evaluate the property on-site. Fees for on-site visits may vary.

Bidding Increments Bidding generally opens at half the low estimate and advances in the following order, although the auctioneer may vary the bidding increments during the course of the auction. The standard bidding increments are:

Standard Commission Rates Our standard rate of commission is equal to ten percent (10%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $5,001 or more; and twenty-five percent (25%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for less than $5,001, with a minimum commission of $75 per lot sold. If your property fails to reach the reserve price agreed upon between you and Hindman LLC, you may be obligated to pay a reduced commission rate of five percent (5%) of the reserve price.

$0 - $500 ........................................ $25 $500 - $1,000 ..................................... $50 $1,000 - $2,000 ................................... $100 $2,000 - $5,000 ................................... $250 $5,000 - $10,000 ................................. $500 $10,000 - $20,000 .............................. $1,000 $20,000 - $50,000 .............................. $2,500 $50,000 - $100,000 ............................ $5,000 $100,000 - $200,000 .......................... $10,000 Above > $200,000 .... At Auctioneer’s Discretion

Shipping Arrangements Hindman LLC can advise you as to how to have your property delivered to our galleries. Packing, shipping and insurance are payable by the seller. In certain instances, packing and shipping costs may be paid by Hindman LLC and deducted from the proceeds of the sale. We may recommend packers and shippers, but we are not responsible for their acts or omissions.

In-House Bidding Our auctions are free and open to the public with no obligation for attendees to bid. Registration requires your full contact information, photo identification, credit card information, your signature and agreement to the Conditions of Sale.. If you are the successful bidder, your paddle number and the hammer price will be announced by the auctioneer.

Appraisals Appraisals can be arranged for insurance, donation, estate tax, family division or other purposes. Appraisal fees vary according to circumstances. Please contact our Estates and Appraisals Department at 312.280.1212 for further information.

Live Bid Online Hindman LLC allows absentee and live bidding through our website at hindmanauctions.com as well as absentee and live bidding through third party online bidding providers which vary by sale. For more information regarding online bidding please visit our website at hindmanauctions.com.

GUIDE FOR PROSPECTIVE BUYERS Conditions of Sale Hindman LLC encourages all prospective buyers to read the Conditions of Sale printed in this catalogue. Exhibitions Hindman LLC recommends that all prospective buyers attend the pre-sale exhibition prior to the auction. Staff members are available at our pre-sale exhibitions to advise prospective buyers on particular objects or on any aspect of the bidding process. Estimates Hindman LLC provides catalogue descriptions and pre-auction estimates for each lot included in the sale. These estimates are a guide for prospective bidders. They are not definitive. All pre-sale estimates are subject to revision. Condition Reports We are happy to provide a condition report for lots with a low estimate of $300 and above. Nevertheless, intending buyers are reminded that condition reports are statements of our opinion only, and that each lot is sold “AS IS,” per our Conditions of Sale, as outlined in the back of this catalogue. All lots should be viewed personally by prospective buyers or their agents to evaluate the condition of the property offered for sale due to the highly subjective nature of condition reports.

Absentee Bidding If you are unable to attend an auction, you may place an absentee bid, either through our website at hindmanauctions.com or through the bid form provided at the back of this catalogue. An absentee bid is the highest price you are willing to pay exclusive of buyer’s premium and applicable sales tax. Hindman LLC will exercise absentee bids at no additional charge. Absentee bids are always confidential, and bids are executed at the lowest price possible by the auctioneer according to reserves and competing bids. Telephone Bidding You may register telephone bid requests either through our website at hindmanauctions.com or through the bid form provided at the back of this catalogue. Upon registering for a telephone bid, you will be called on the day of the auction by a Hindman representative approximately five lots before your item is scheduled to be sold. They will communicate to you the bidding activity and will relay your bids to the auctioneer at your discretion. Please note we can only accept telephone bids for lots with a low estimate of $300 or above unless otherwise noted online. Telephone bids may be requested up to 2 hours prior to the auction start time. Tax Exempt Notice Lots marked with an asterisk (*) are tax exempt as permitted by law.

Bidding at Auction The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay Hindman LLC a buyer’s premium as well as any applicable taxes.

CONDITIONS OF SALE These Conditions of Sale set out the terms upon which Hindman LLC (“we,” “us,” or “our”) sells property by lot in this catalogue. You agree to be bound by these terms by registering to bid and/or by bidding in our auction. A glossary at the end defines the words in bold type.

A.   BEFORE THE AUCTION

1. LOT DESCRIPTIONS AND WARRANTIES Our description of a lot, any statement of a lot’s condition, and any other oral or written statement about a lot—such as its nature, condition, artist, period, materials, dimensions, weight, exhibition or publication history, or provenance—are our opinion and shall not to be relied upon by you as a statement of fact. Except for the limited authenticity warranty contained in paragraphs E and F below, we do not provide any guarantee of our description or the nature of a lot. 2. CONDITION The physical condition of lots in our auctions can vary due to age, normal wear and tear, previous damage, and restoration/repair. All lots are sold “AS IS,” in the condition they are in at the time of the auction, and we and the seller make no representation or warranty and assume no liability of any kind as to a lot’s condition. Any reference to condition in a catalogue description or a condition report shall not amount to a full accounting of condition and may not include all faults, inherent defects, restoration, alteration, or adaptation. Likewise, images in our catalogue may not depict a lot accurately, as colors and shades may appear different in print or on screen than on physical inspection. We are not responsible for providing you with a description of a lot’s condition in the catalogue or in a condition report. 3. VIEWING LOTS We offer pre-auction viewings, either scheduled or by appointment, that are free of charge. If you believe that the catalogue description or condition reports are not sufficient, we suggest you inspect a lot personally or through a knowledgeable representative before you bid on a lot to make sure that you accept the description and its condition. We recommend you hire a professional adviser if you are not familiar with how to address the nature or condition of an object. 4. ESTIMATES Estimates of a lot account for the condition, rarity, quality, and provenance of the object and are based upon prices realized for similar objects in past auctions. Neither you nor anyone else may rely on our estimates as a prediction or guarantee of the actual selling price of a lot or its value for any other purpose. Estimates do not include the buyer’s premium, any applicable taxes, and any other applicable charges. 5. WITHDRAWAL We may, in our sole discretion, withdraw a lot from auction at any time prior to or during the sale and shall have no liability to you for our decision to withdraw.

B.   REGISTERING TO BID

1. NEW BIDDERS New bidders must register at least twenty-four (24) hours before an auction and must provide us with documentation of their identity. (a) Individuals must provide photo identification (driver’s license, non-driver ID card, or passport) and, if not shown on the photo identification, proof of current address (a current utility bill or bank statement). (b) Corporate clients must provide a Certificate of Incorporation or its equivalent bearing the company’s name and registered address, together with documentary proof of directors and beneficial owners. (c) Trusts, partnerships, offshore companies, and other business entities must contact us in advance of the auction to discuss our requirements. If we are not satisfied with the information you provide us in our bidder identification and other registration procedures, we may refuse to register you to bid, and if you make a successful bid, we may cancel the contract for sale between you and the seller. New bidders may be required to provide us with a financial reference and/or a deposit before we allow them to bid. 2. RETURNING BIDDERS If you have not bought anything from us recently, then we may require you to register as a new bidder, as described in the paragraph above.

allowing you to bid. You, as the agent, shall accept personal liability to pay the purchase price and all other sums due unless we have agreed in writing before the auction that you are acting as an agent on behalf of your principal and that we will only seek payment from your principal. 4. BIDDING IN THE SALEROOM If you wish to bid in the saleroom, you must first acquire a bidding paddle at least thirty (30) minutes before the auction. 5. OUR BIDDING SERVICES We offer the following bidding services as a convenience to our clients, subject to these Conditions of Sale. We shall not be responsible for any error, omission, or failure, human or otherwise, in providing these services. (a) Phone Bids: You must contact us at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the auction to arrange a phone bid. We will accept bids by telephone for lots only if our staff is available to take the bids. We agree that we may record telephone bids. (b) Internet Bids: You can bid in our live sales via our bidding platform or through third-party bidding sites. (c) Written Bids: You can find a Written Bid Form in the back of our catalogues, at the auction location, or online at www.hindmanauctions.com. We must receive your completed Written Bid Form at least twenty-four (24) hours before the auction. We will endeavor to execute written bids at the lowest possible price consistent with the reserve. If you make a written bid on a lot that does not have a reserve and there is no higher bid than yours, we will bid on your behalf at approximately fifty percent (50%) of the low estimate or, if lower, the amount of your bid. The first written bid we receive of those for identical amounts will be given priority over other bids. 6. CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION HOLD When you register to bid you may be asked to provide us with a valid credit card number. You authorize us to verify the validity of the credit card by placing a $100 authorization hold on the card that will remain until it falls off, usually within 48 hours.

C.   DURING THE AUCTION

1. BIDDING IN THE AUCTION (a) Live Auctions. We will appoint an individual auctioneer to administer a live auction. The auctioneer may accept bids from (a) written bids left with us by bidders before the auction; (b) bidders in the saleroom; (c) telephone bidders; and (d) Internet bidders. Bidding generally starts below the low estimate and increases in steps, called bid increments. The auctioneer will decide at his/ her sole option where the bidding should start and the bid increments. Bid increments may vary from auction to auction. You shall comply with all laws and regulations in force that govern your bidding. (b) Online-only Auctions. Bids may only be submitted on our website or through third-party bidding sites between the dates and times specified in the lot’s description. Your bid is submitted once you place and confirm your bid amount. You agree that a bid is final once it is placed and that you may never amend or revoke your bid. You are fully responsible for any errors you make in bidding. Bidding generally opens at or below the low estimate and increases in steps (bidding increments) to be determined in Hindman’s sole discretion. 2. AUCTIONEER’S DISCRETION The auctioneer shall have absolute discretion to (a) admit a bidder into or remove a bidder from the saleroom or online auction; (b) accept or refuse any bid; (c) change the order of the lots in the auction; (d) move the bidding backward or forward; (e) withdraw any lot from the auction; (f) divide any lot or combine any two or more lots; (g) reopen or continue the bidding even after the hammer has fallen; and (h) continue the bidding, determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale of the lot, or reoffer and resell any lot in the event that there is an error or dispute related to bidding or the application of the reserve, whether during or after the auction. You must provide us with written notice within three (3) business days of the date of the auction if you believe that the auctioneer has accepted the successful bid in error. The auctioneer will consider the claim and decide in good faith if the sale of the lot is final, whether he/she will cancel the sale of the lot, or whether he/she will reoffer and resell the lot. The auctioneer’s decision in exercise of this discretion is final. This paragraph does not in any way affect our ability to cancel the sale of a lot under other applicable provisions of these Conditions of Sale, including the rights of cancellation set forth in sections B(1), D(6), E(2), and G(1). 3. BIDDING ON BEHALF OF THE SELLER The auctioneer may, at his/her sole option, bid on behalf of the seller up to one bidding increment before the reserve by making either consecutive or responsive bids. The auctioneer will not identify these as bids made on behalf of the seller. If a lot is offered without reserve, the auctioneer will open the bidding at approximately fifty percent (50%) of the lot’s low estimate; where


necessary, will lower the asking bid until a bid is received; and will solicit higher bids from that amount. If there are no bids on a lot, the auctioneer may deem the lot unsold. 4. SUCCESSFUL BIDS AND INVOICES Subject to paragraph C(2), the contract of sale between the seller and the successful bidder is formed when the final bid is accepted and the auctioneer’s hammer strikes. The successful bid price is the hammer price, and we will issue an invoice only to the registered bidder who made the successful bid. While we send out invoices by mail and/or email after the auction, we shall not be responsible for telling you whether your bid was successful. You should contact us immediately after the auction to find out the success of your bid in order to avoid having to pay storage charges.

D. AFTER THE AUCTION

1. THE BUYER’S PREMIUM In addition to the hammer price, the successful bidder agrees to pay us a buyer’s premium on the hammer price of each lot sold. On all lots, we charge twenty-five percent (25%) of the hammer price up to and including $400,000; twenty percent (20%) of any amount in excess of $400,001 up to and including $4,000,000; and twelve percent (12%) of any amount in excess of $4,000,001. If the bidder bids through a third-party platform the bidder agrees to pay us a surcharge equal to the fee levied by the third-party platform. The third-party platform fee is in addition to the buyer’s premium. 2. TAXES The successful bidder is responsible for any applicable taxes, including any sales or use tax or equivalent tax wherever such taxes may arise on the hammer price, the buyer’s premium, and/or any other charges related to the lot. A sales or use tax is dependent upon a number of factors, including, but not limited to, our volume of sale and the place of delivery of the lot, regardless of the nationality or citizenship of the successful bidder. The applicable sales tax rate will be determined based upon the state, county, or locale to which the lot will be shipped or where it is picked-up in person. We collect sales tax in states where legally required. 3. MAKING PAYMENT (a) Immediately following the auction, you must pay the purchase price, consisting of the hammer price, plus the buyer’s premium, plus any applicable duties and sales, use, or other applicable taxes. Payment is due no later than by the end of the seventh (7th) calendar day following the date of the auction, which we refer to as the due date. (b) We will only accept payment from the registered successful bidder. Once issued, we cannot change the buyer’s name on an invoice or reissue the invoice in a different name. (c) You must pay for lots in US dollars in one of the following ways: (i) Wire transfer. (ii) Bank checks: You must make these payable to Hindman LLC, and we may impose other conditions. Once we have deposited your check, property cannot be released until five (5) business days have passed. (iii) Personal checks: You must make these payable to Hindman LLC, and they must be drawn from US dollar accounts from a US bank. The property will not be released until the check has cleared and the funds are received by us. (iv) Cash: We accept cash payments (including money orders and traveler’s checks) subject to a maximum aggregate of US $10,000 per buyer, per sale. (d) You must quote your invoice number when making a payment. All payments sent by post must be sent to Hindman LLC, 1338 West Lake Street, Chicago, IL 60607, ATTN: Client Accounting Department. 4. TRANSFERRING OWNERSHIP TO YOU You will not own the lot and title will not pass to you until we have received full payment in good funds of the purchase price, even in circumstances where we have released the lot to you. 5. TRANSFERRING RISK TO YOU Unless we have agreed otherwise with you, the risk in and responsibility for the lot will transfer to you from whichever is the earlier of the following: (a) when you collect the lot; or (b) the end of the thirtieth (30th) day following the date of the auction or, if earlier, the date the lot is taken into care by a third-party warehouse. 6. YOUR FAILURE TO PAY If you fail to pay us the purchase price in full in good funds by the due date, we will be entitled to do one or more of the following (as well as enforce any other rights and remedies we have by law) at our sole discretion: (a) We can charge interest from the due date at a rate of up to one and onehalf percent (1.5%) per month on the unpaid amount due. (b) We can cancel the sale of the lot and sell the lot again, publicly or privately, on such terms as we believe appropriate, in which case you must pay us any shortfall between the amount you owe us and the resale price, plus all costs, expenses, losses, damages, and legal fees we incur due to the cancellation. (c) We can pay the seller the amount due to them, in which case you acknowledge and understand that we will have all the seller’s rights to pursue you for such amount.

(d) We can hold you legally responsible for the amount you owe us and bring legal proceedings against you to recover the amount owed by you, plus other losses, interest, legal fees, and costs as allowed by law. (e) We can reveal your identity and contact details to the seller. (f) We can reject any bids made by or on behalf of you in future auctions or require you to provide us with a deposit before accepting any bids. (g) We can exercise all the rights and remedies of a person holding security over any property in our possession owned by you, whether by way of pledge, security interest, or in any other way as permitted by the law of the place where such property is located. You will be deemed to have granted such security to us and we may retain such property as collateral security for your obligations to us. (h) We can take any other action we deem necessary or appropriate. 7. SHIPPING, COLLECTION, AND STORAGE (a) You must collect purchased lots within thirty (30) days of the auction. We can assist in making shipping arrangements by suggesting art handlers, packers, transporters, or experts, but you must arrange all transport and shipping with them, and we are not responsible for their acts, failure to act, or neglect. (b) If you do not collect any purchased lot within thirty (30) days following the auction, we may, at our sole option, (i) charge you storage and insurance costs; (ii) move the lot to another Hindman location or to a third-party warehouse, whereupon we will charge you transport costs, insurance costs, and administration fees for doing so, and you will be subject to the third-party storage warehouse’s standard terms and responsible for paying its standard fees and costs; or (iii) sell the lot in any commercially reasonable way we think appropriate. (c) In accordance with applicable state law, if you have paid for the lot in full but you do not collect the lot within the time specified by the law of the state where the auction takes place, we may charge you state sales tax for the lot. (d) Nothing in this paragraph is intended to limit our rights under paragraph D(6). 8. EXPORTING, IMPORTING, AND ENDANGERED SPECIES (a) The shipping of a lot is affected by United States export laws or the import laws of other countries. If you are outside the United States, then local laws may prevent you from importing a lot. You alone are responsible for seeking advice prior to bidding and meeting the requirements of any law or regulation applying to the export or import of a lot. (b) Lots made of or including (regardless of the percentage) endangered and other protected species of wildlife—such as, among other things, ivory, tortoiseshell, crocodile skin, rhinoceros horn, whalebone, certain species of coral, and Brazilian rosewood—may be subject to export controls in the US and import controls in other countries. You should check the relevant wildlife laws and regulations before bidding on any lot containing wildlife material if you plan to export the lot from the United States, import the lot into another country, or ship the lot between states. Your purchase of a lot containing endangered and other protected species of wildlife is at your own risk, and you shall be responsible for any scientific test or other reports required for export from the United States or for shipment between states. We will not cancel your purchase and refund the purchase price if your lot may not be exported, imported, or shipped between states, or if it is seized for any reason by a government authority. It is your responsibility to determine and satisfy the requirements of any applicable laws or regulations relating to import, export, and/or interstate shipping of a lot containing endangered and other protected species of wildlife.

E. WARRANTIES

1. SELLER’S WARRANTIES For each lot, the seller gives a warranty that the seller (a) is the owner of the lot or a joint owner of the lot acting with the permission of the other co-owners or, if the seller is not the owner or a joint owner of the lot, has the permission of the owner to sell the lot or the right to do so by law; and (b) has the right to transfer ownership of the lot to the buyer without any restrictions or claims by anyone else. If either of the above warranties are incorrect, the seller shall not have to pay more than the purchase price (as defined in paragraph D(3) above) paid by you to us. The seller will not be responsible to you for any reason for loss of profits or business, expected savings, loss of opportunity or interest, costs, damages, other damages, or expenses. The seller gives no warranty other than as set out above, and as far as the seller is allowed by law, all warranties from the seller to you, and all other obligations upon the seller that may be added to this agreement by law, are excluded. No employee or agent of Hindman is authorized to make a representation or provide other information, whether orally or in writing, that amends the seller’s warranties or creates an additional warranty on behalf of the seller with respect to a lot. Any such representation, other information, or additional warranty shall be null and void.

2. OUR LIMITED AUTHENTICITY WARRANTY Our limited authenticity warranty, which lasts for one (1) year from the date of a live auction or three (3) months from an online only auction, is that the lots in our sales are authentic as defined in paragraph H, below. You must notify Hindman regarding concerns of authenticity in writing within one (1) year of the date of a live auction or within three (3) months of the date of an online only auction. Following receipt of that written notification, subject to the terms below, Hindman will refund the purchase price paid by the client. The terms of this limited authenticity warranty are as follows: (a) It will be honored for claims notified in writing within a period of one (1) year from the date of a live auction or three (3) months from an online only auction. After such time, we will not be obligated to honor the limited authenticity warranty. (b) It is given only for information shown in UPPERCASE type in the first line of the catalogue description (the Heading). It does not apply to any information other than that in the Heading, even if it is shown in UPPERCASE type. (c) It does not apply to any Heading or part of a Heading that is qualified. “Qualified” means limited by a clarification in a lot’s catalogue description or by the use in a Heading of one of the terms listed in the definition of “qualified” provided in paragraph H, below. Qualified Headings are not covered at all by this limited authenticity warranty. (d) It applies to the Heading as amended by any saleroom notice. (e) It does not apply where scholarship has developed since the auction, leading to a change in generally accepted opinion. Further, it does not apply if the Heading either matched the generally accepted opinion of experts at the date of the auction or drew attention to any conflict of opinion. (f) It does not apply if the lot can only be shown not to be authentic by a scientific process that, on the date we published the catalogue, was not available or generally accepted for use, was unreasonably expensive or impractical, or was likely to have damaged the lot. (g) Its benefit is only available to the original buyer shown on the invoice for the lot, issued at the time of the sale, and only if, on the date of the notice of claim, the original buyer is the full owner of the lot and the lot is free from any claim, interest, or restriction by anyone else. The benefit of this limited authenticity warranty may not be transferred by the original buyer to anyone else.  (h) In order to make a claim under the limited authenticity warranty, you must (i) give us written notice of your claim within one (1) year of the date of a live auction or three (3) months from an online only auction ; (ii) at our option, pay for and provide us with the written opinions of two recognized experts in the field, mutually agreed upon by you and us, confirming that the lot is not authentic (we reserve the right to obtain additional opinions at our expense); and (iii) return the lot at your expense to the saleroom from which you bought it in the condition it was in at the time of sale. (i) Your only right under this limited authenticity warranty is to cancel the sale and receive a refund of the purchase price paid by you to us. We will not, under any circumstances, be required to pay you more than the purchase price, nor will we be liable for any loss of profits or business, loss of opportunity or value, expected savings or interest, costs, damages, other damages, or expenses. (j) No employee or agent of Hindman is authorized to make a representation or provide additional information, whether orally or in writing, that amends the limited authenticity warranty or creates an additional warranty with respect to a lot. Any such representation, other information, or additional warranty shall be null and void. 3. ADDITIONAL WARRANTY FOR BOOKS If the lot is a book, then we give an additional warranty to the original buyer shown on the invoice for the lot issued at the time of the sale in the following circumstances: (a) We will refund the purchase price to the original buyer if we, in our sole discretion, are convinced that the book is defective in text or illustration, subject to the following terms: (i) This additional warranty does not apply to (A) the absence of blanks, half titles, tissue guards, or advertisements; or damage in respect of bindings, stains, spotting, marginal tears, or other defects not affecting the completeness of the text or illustration; (B) drawings, autographs, letters or manuscripts, signed photographs, music, atlases, maps, or periodicals; (C) books not identified by title; (D) lots sold without a printed estimate; (E) books that are described in the catalog as sold not subject to return; or (F) defects stated in any condition report or announced at the time of sale. (ii) To make a claim under this additional warranty, you must give written details of the defect within twenty-one (21) days of the date of the sale and return the lot within twenty-one (21) days of the date of the sale to the saleroom at which you bought it in the same condition as at the time of sale. (iii) Paragraphs E(2)(b), (c), (d), (e), (h), and (i) also apply to a claim under this additional warranty. (c) No employee or agent of Hindman is authorized to make a representation or provide other information, whether orally or in writing, that amends the additional warranty for books or creates an additional warranty with respect to a lot. Any such representation, other information, or additional warranty shall be null and void. 56

PALM BEACH FINE JEWELRY

4. JEWELRY (a) Colored gemstones (such as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds) may have been treated to improve their appearance through methods such as heating and/or various clarity enhancements. These methods are considered common by the international jewelry trade but may make a gemstone more fragile and/or cause the gemstone to require special care over time. (b) All types of gemstones may have been improved by some method. You may request a gemological report for any item that does not have a report if the request is made to us at least three (3) weeks before the date of the auction and you pay the fee for the report. (c) We do not obtain a gemological report for every gemstone sold in our auctions. When we do get gemological reports from internationally accepted gemological laboratories, such reports are described in the catalogue. Reports from American gemological laboratories describe any improvement or treatment to the gemstone. Reports from European gemological laboratories describe any improvement or treatment only if we request that they do so, but they do confirm when no improvement or treatment has been made. Because of differences in approach and technology, laboratories may not agree on whether a gemstone has been treated, the amount of treatment, or whether that treatment is permanent. The gemological laboratories only report on the improvements or treatments known to them at the date they make the report. (d) For jewelry sales, estimates are based on the information in any gemological report. If no report is available, assume that the gemstones may have been treated or enhanced. 5. WATCHES AND CLOCKS (a) Almost all clocks and watches are repaired in their lifetime and may include parts that are not original. We do not give a warranty that any individual component part of any watch is authentic. Watchbands described as “associated” are not part of the original watch and may not be authentic. Clocks may be sold without pendulums, weights, or keys. (b) As collectors’ watches often have very fine and complex mechanisms, you are responsible for any general service, change of battery, or further repair work that may be necessary. We do not give a warranty that any watch is in good working order. Certificates are not available unless described in the catalogue. (c) Most wristwatches have been opened to find out the type and quality of movement. For that reason, wristwatches with water-resistant cases may not be waterproof, and we recommend you have them checked by a competent watchmaker before use. (d) Many of the watches offered for sale in this catalogue are pictured with straps made of endangered or protected animal materials such as alligator or crocodile skin. When straps are shown for display purposes only and are not for sale. We may remove and retain the strap prior to shipment from the sale site. Please check with the department for details on a lot with such a strap. 6. YOUR WARRANTIES You warrant to us and the seller that (a) the funds you use for payment are not connected with any criminal activity, including tax evasion, and neither are you under investigation, nor have you been charged with or convicted of money laundering, terrorist activities, or other crimes; (b) where you are bidding on behalf of another person, (i) you have conducted appropriate customer due diligence on the ultimate buyer(s) of the lot(s) in accordance with all applicable anti-money laundering and sanctions laws, you consent to us relying on this due diligence, you will retain for a period of not less than five (5) years the documentation evidencing the due diligence, and you will make such documentation promptly available for immediate inspection by an independent third-party auditor upon our written request to do so; (ii) the arrangements between you and the ultimate buyer(s) in relation to the lot or otherwise do not, in whole or in part, facilitate tax crimes; (iii) you do not know, and have no reason to suspect, that the funds used for payment are connected with or the proceeds of any criminal activity, including tax evasion, or that the ultimate buyer(s) are under investigation for, or have been charged with or convicted of, money laundering, terrorist activities, or other crimes.

F. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU

(a) We give no warranty in relation to any statement made, or information given, by us or our representatives or employees about any lot other than as set out in the limited authenticity warranty or in the additional warranty for books, and as far as we are allowed by law, all warranties and other terms that may be added to this agreement by law are excluded. The seller’s warranties contained in paragraph E(1) are their own, and we do not have any liability to you in relation to those warranties. (b) We are not responsible to you for any reason (whether for breaking this agreement or for any other matter relating to your purchase of, or bid for, any lot) other than in the event of fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by us, or other than as expressly set out in these Conditions of Sale. (c) WE DO NOT GIVE ANY REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY, OR GUARANTEE


OR ASSUME ANY LIABILITY OF ANY KIND IN RESPECT OF ANY LOT WITH REGARD TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, DESCRIPTION, SIZE, QUALITY, CONDITION, ATTRIBUTION, AUTHENTICITY, RARITY, IMPORTANCE, MEDIUM, PROVENANCE, EXHIBITION HISTORY, LITERATURE, OR HISTORICAL RELEVANCE. EXCEPT AS REQUIRED BY LOCAL LAW, ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND IS EXCLUDED BY THIS PARAGRAPH. (d) Our written and telephone bidding services, online bidding services, and condition reports are free services, and we are not responsible to you for any error, omission, or failure of these services. (e) We have no responsibility to any person other than a buyer in connection with the purchase of any lot. (f) If, despite the terms in paragraphs F(a)–(e) or E(2)–(3) above, we are found to be liable to you for any reason, we shall not have to pay more than the purchase price paid by you to us. We will not be responsible to you for any reason for loss of profits or business, loss of opportunity or value, expected savings or interest, costs, damages, or expenses.

G. OTHER TERMS

1. OUR ABILITY TO CANCEL In addition to the other rights of cancellation contained herein, we can cancel a sale of a lot if (i) any of your warranties in paragraph E(4) are not correct; (ii) we reasonably believe that completing the transaction is, or may be, unlawful; or (iii) we reasonably believe that the sale places us or the seller under any liability to anyone else or may damage our reputation. 2. RECORDINGS We may videotape and/or audio record proceedings at any auction. We will keep any personal information confidential, except to the extent that disclosure is required by law. If you do not want to be videotaped, you may decide to make a telephone or written bid or bid online instead. Unless we agree otherwise in writing, you may not videotape or record proceedings at any auction. 3. COPYRIGHT We own the copyright in all images, illustrations, and written material produced by or for us relating to a lot, including the contents of our catalogues, unless otherwise noted therein. You cannot use them without our prior written permission. We make no representation and offer no guarantee that the buyer of a lot will gain any copyright or other reproduction rights. 4. ENFORCING THIS AGREEMENT If a court finds that any part of this agreement is invalid, illegal, or impossible to enforce, that part of the agreement will be treated as being deleted, and the rest of this agreement will not be affected. 5. TRANSFERRING YOUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES You may not grant a security over or transfer your rights or responsibilities under these terms unless we have given our written permission. This agreement will be binding on your successors or estate and anyone who takes over your rights and responsibilities.  6. PERSONAL INFORMATION We will hold and process your personal information in line with our privacy policy at www.hindmanauctions.com. 7. WAIVER No failure or delay to exercise any right or remedy contained herein shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. 8. LAW AND DISPUTES This agreement, and any noncontractual obligations arising out of or in connection with this agreement, or any other rights you may have relating to the purchase of a lot will be governed by the laws of Illinois. Before we or you start any court proceedings (except in the limited circumstances where the dispute, controversy, or claim is related to proceedings brought by someone else and this dispute could be joined to those proceedings), you and we agree to try to settle the dispute by mediation submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for mediation in Illinois. If the dispute is not settled by mediation within sixty (60) days from the date when mediation is initiated, then the dispute shall be submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for final and binding arbitration in accordance with its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures or, if the dispute involves a non-US party, the JAMS International Arbitration Rules. The seat of the arbitration shall be Illinois, and the arbitration shall be conducted by one arbitrator, who shall be appointed within thirty (30) days after the initiation of the arbitration. The language used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The arbitrator shall order the production of documents only upon a showing that such documents are relevant and material to the outcome of the dispute. The arbitration shall be confidential, except to the extent necessary to enforce a judgment or where disclosure is required by law. The arbitration award shall be final and binding on all parties involved. Judgment upon the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets. This

arbitration and any proceedings conducted hereunder shall be governed by Title 9 (Arbitration) of the United States Code and by the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of June 10, 1958.
