Both the Auctioneer and MA shall be without any liability whatsoever resulting from the exercise of the discretion referred to herein. e.

No employee of MA is authorized to nor shall make any warranty or representation on MA’s behalf, except as stated in the catalog or in any written addendum. ESTIMATES OF VALUE All estimates of value as published in our Catalogues or elsewhere are statements of qualified opinion as to the range of the price a willing buyer might pay for the Property at auction. The actual price paid at auction or subsequently, may vary substantially from the estimates. MA shall not be liable for any such differential. BUYER’S DEFAULT If a Buyer fails to pay for purchased Property, or otherwise does not comply with these Conditions of Sale, the Buyer shall be in default. In addition to all remedies available in law, to MA and to the Consignor, the Buyer shall be liable for the entire Purchase price. Additionally, at our option, we may either cancel the sale and retain all payments made by Buyer as well as retain any and all Property of


Buyer in our possession as security against payment of the sums in default, or we may re-offer the Property for sale, at auction or privately, without reserve. Buyer shall be liable to us and the Consignor for the additional fees, commissions and costs on both sales (including handling, storage and court costs and attorney’s fees) resulting from the cancellation or resale of the Property and in the event of resale, any deficiency which may result. RESCISSION The sole and exclusive remedy, available only to the original buyer, is the limited right of rescission set forth herein. MA will cancel the sale of Property if the original buyer establishes to our satisfaction that there has been a breach of the Consignor’s warranty of title, or that the identification of Authorship* of the Property as set forth in Bold Type Heading is not substantially correct, based on a fair reading of the Catalogue (as may be amended by posted or announced changes.) IN ALL INSTANCES, YOU MUST GIVE WRITTEN NOTICE TO US WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE SALE OF THE PROPERTY, SETTING FORTH THE BASIS FOR YOUR CLAIM AND, AT YOUR SOLE EXPENSE AND RISK, RETURN THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION TO MA WITHIN SEVEN (7) DAYS AFTER NOTICE IS GIVEN AND IN THE SAME CONDITION AS WHEN SOLD. Upon review of the claim and the property, if we are satisfied with the bases for your claim and the property is in the same condition it was in when sold, MA will rescind the sale and return to you the Purchase price, unless we have already remitted funds to the Consignor. In that event, and at MA’s sole discretion, MA shall either pay you as provided above, or shall pay you only that portion of the Purchase price retained by us (the Seller’s commission, the buyer’s premium and any sales taxes collected) and on your behalf make demand on the Consignor for the balance and upon receipt of the funds remit same to you. Should the Consignor refuse to return the funds to you or to MA, we shall disclose the Consignor’s identity and assign to you any and all rights MA may have against the Consignor. Any and all liability MA may have as agent for the Consignor shall thereupon terminate. BUYER EXPRESSLY UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT MA SHALL HAVE NO OTHER LIABILITY TO THE BUYER EXCEPT FOR THE RETURN OF THE PURCHASE PRICE AND THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL MA BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR COMPENSATORY DAMAGES OR LOSS OF PROFIT OR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. *Authorship refers to the maker or creator of the Property, and the period, social culture, and origin of the Property as stated in the Bold Type Heading for a given lot in our catalogue. It does not refer to the descriptions which may be contained in the information below the Bold Type Heading. MISCELLANEOUS a. Modification: No modification or amendment of the Conditions of Sale shall bind MA unless contained in a writing signed by MA, except as may be posted or published as noted above or verbally announced at time of sale. b. Severability: If, for any reason, any part of the Conditions of Sale is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portion shall be valid and enforceable. c. Successors and Assigns: The Conditions of Sale shall

be binding on all the heirs and assigns of the Buyers and bidders and inure to the benefit of MA’s successors and assigns. d. Jurisdiction, Venue, Choice of Law: Dispute resolution shall occur in Alameda County, California, USA. The provisions of the Conditions of Sale will be construed and disputes determined by application of California Law, without regard to conflicts of law. e. Notice, Service of Process: Buyers agree to accept all notices and service of process relating to dispute resolution at the address provided by Buyer on any registration forms required to be executed as a condition of bidding in our auction. f. Dispute Resolution: All disputes and claims arising out of or relating to events and actions covered herein, brought by or against us, shall be resolved by mediation or binding arbitration in accord with the procedures set forth below. This provision does not apply to claims brought by the Buyer directly against the Consignor, including, but not limited to any action brought pursuant to the rescission provisions noted above OPTIONAL PROVISIONS Shipping, insurance packaging and handling of purchased lots is at the risk and expense of the purchaser. As a service to the purchaser, MA may ship appropriate items solely via United Parcel Service, (UPS) Ground. MA will not ship by any other method including USPS, and property requiring freight shipment. MA will, in no event insure the property whether or not packaged and shipped by MA. MA shall not, under any circumstances, be liable for the loss, theft or damage to property, including, but not limited to selection of shipper, the acts or omissions of any shipper or the acts or omissions occurring in packing for shipment. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to obtain a shipping quote for any lot being offered, from an outside shipper, prior to the auction date. (As a courtesy, MA may provide quotes for items to be shipped via UPS). Post sale determination of shipping costs does not constitute grounds for cancellation of any purchase made at auction. Purchasers are advised that large and fragile items can be expensive and that MA will ship no property without first obtaining consent from the purchaser and only after packing and shipping costs have been disclosed by MA. When MA is to pack and ship, MA will provide to the bidder with a quote for cost of packing and handling and the UPS fee. The Purchaser is responsible for any insurance of the shipment. Shipment will not be made until both all sums due MA including the shipping and handling fees as quoted, and written confirmation is received that insurance has been waived or has been obtained by purchaser. Shipment may take up to 21 days after payment is received. MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION PROCEDURES (a) Within 30 days of written notice that there is a dispute, the parties or their representatives may meet at a time and place mutually agreed upon, to mediate their differences. If the parties agree, a mediator acceptable to the parties shall be selected. The mediator shall be an attorney, trained in mediation techniques and familiar with commercial law and the California Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The mediator’s fees shall be shared equally and paid by all parties. At the mediation, all parties shall have actual authority to settle the dispute. Any statements made during, and all aspects of, the mediation process shall be kept confidential and shall not be admissible in any subsequent arbitration or judicial proceeding. Any resolution shall be confi-

dential. (b) If the parties cannot agree to mediation, or if mediation does not resolve the dispute, or in any event no longer than 60 days after receipt of written notice referred to above, the parties shall submit the dispute for binding arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator jointly selected, or absent agreement, selected from the panel of Arbitrators provided by the American Arbitration Association (AAA). If, within 15 days, the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, then AAA shall select one (1) person as arbitrator in accord with AAA rules. The arbitrator shall be an attorney, experienced in commercial law and with the UCC. The arbitrator shall be required to follow the law in making his award, and the award shall be in writing and shall set forth findings of fact and legal conclusions.(c) The arbitration shall occur within 60 days of the selection of the arbitrator, in either Oakland or San Francisco, California, unless the parties agree to another location. Discovery and the procedure for the Arbitration shall, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, follow the procedures and policies of AAA governing commercial arbitration, subject however to the following modifications: 1. All arbitration proceedings shall be confidential. None of the parties nor the arbitrator, may disclose the existence, content or results of the arbitration without the written consent of all parties. 2. The parties shall attempt to agree on the issues to be arbitrated, or identify the disputed issues in writing no later than 45 days prior to arbitration. 3. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, discovery, if any, shall be limited as follows: (a) Requests for no more than 10 clearly identified categories of documents, to be provided to the requesting party within 14 days of written request therefore; (b) Depositions: No more than two (2) per party, provided however, the deposition(s) are to be completed within one (1) day; (c) Compliance with the above shall be enforced by the arbitrator in accord with California law. 4. Each party shall have no longer than eight (8) hours to present its position. The entire hearing before the arbitrator shall not take longer than three (3) consecutive days, unless all parties agree otherwise in writing. The award shall be made in writing no more than 30 days following the end of the proceeding. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear its own attorney’s fees and costs in connection with the proceedings and shall share equally the fees and expenses of the arbitrator. This auction is being conducted in compliance with section 2328 of the Commercial Code, section 535 of the Penal Code, and provisions of the California Civil Code.

PROPERTY MADE FROM OR CONTAINING MATERIALS FROM ENDANGERED OR PROTECTED SPECIES Property that contains any percentage of material made or potentially made from endangered and/or other protected species of wildlife are, as a courtesy, marked in the catalogue with the symbol “ * ”. Michaan’s Auctions does not accept any responsibility or liability for failing to mark such lots. Such material includes, but is not limited to, ivory, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Prospective buyers are advised that several countries completely prohibit importation of property made, all or in part, of proscribed materials. Some countries require special permits, such as a CITES permit, from the relevant regulating authority in the countries of exportation and importation as well. Potential buyers intending to import the property into another country should be familiar with the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding on property containing wildlife material. Regulations may vary as the U.S. prohibits importation of articles containing material(s) from species it has designated endangered or threatened if the articles are less than 100 years old. It shall be the potential buyer’s sole responsibility to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. Prospective buyers must also note that the inability or delay in obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export property containing potentially regulated wildlife material will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale of said property or the delay in payment of purchased items in accordance with the Conditions of Sale. Definitions of Authorship: This is to qualify the relationship between the object and the named person in the catalogue. The following conventions for attribution are used by Michaan’s Auctions: Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion a work by the artist. When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indi-

cates that in our opinion the work is by the artists named. Attributed to Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainty as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. Studio of Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist, which may or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. Circle of Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified by distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. Style of ......; follower of Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or near contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil. Manner of Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. after Giovanni Bellini: In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. “bearing signature...”/”bearing date...”/”bearing inscription...” In our opinion the signature/date/inscription is by a hand other than that of the artist. Typical Headings: FURNITURE George III Mahogany Chest of Drawers Third Quarter 18th Century This heading, with date included, means that the piece is, in our opinion, of the period indicated with no major alterations or restorations. George III Mahogany Chest of Drawers This heading, without the inclusion of the date, indicates that, in our opinion, the piece, while basically of the period, has undergone significant restoration and alteration.

George III Style Mahogany Chest of Drawers The inclusion of the word “style” in the heading indicates that, in our opinion, the piece was made as an intentional reproduction of an earlier style. BRONZES Antoine-Louis Barye This heading indicates that the casting and patination were done by the artist or with his direct authorization or supervsion. Cast After a Model by Antoine-Louis Barye This heading indicates that the casting and patination of a known Barye model were done by another, i.e., artisans at the F. Barbedienne or other foundry. CERAMICS Meissen Porcelain Cup and Saucer Late 19th Century This states that the cup and saucer were made at the Meissen factory in the last quarter of the 19th Century. Meissen Porcelain Cup and a Saucer Late 19th Century Again, this states that the cup and saucer were made at the Meissen factory in the last quarter of the 19th Century, but it also indicates that the cup and saucer may not have been “born” together. Meissen Porcelain Cup and Saucer Circa 1900 This states that the cup and saucer are of Meissen style, and although of the date specified, not necessarily made at the Meissen factory. ‘Meissen’ Porcelain Cup and a Saucer 19th Century This states that the cup and saucer are of Meissen style, and although of the date specified, not necessarily made at the Meissen factory. Meissen Porcelain Cup and Saucer The title without a specific date simply states that the pieces were made at the Meissen factory but does not specify when, implying that their age is questionable.
