Descriptions are guaranteed to be accurate as regards authenticity, age, condition, and measurements to within one-fourth inch, as represented in this catalog. In describing damage, exterior wear or manufacturer’s flaws that, in our opinion, do not significantly detract visually or monetarily from the value of the item are not listed and will not be considered for refund. The Auctioneers reserve the right to make corrections and provide additional information at any time during the sale. 3. Preview: Items may be viewed by appointment at our offices. 4. Bidding Procedure: Bidding on an item may be done in one of five ways: 1. Bidding by telephone, 2. Internet Bidding, 3. Submitting bids by Fax, 4. Bids submitted by email (valid only if bid is confirmed by Norman C. Heckler & Company), 5. Bidding by Mail. Your bid, written, oral or electronic, grants Norman C. Heckler & Company the authority to protect you up to the amount of your stated bid. Your bid will not be removed once executed. You may telephone us at any time (weekdays 9 AM - 5 PM EST (6 AM - 2 PM PST) and 10 PM EST (7 PM PST) the last day of the auction) during the auction, prior to the closing of the sale, to check the status of your bids, to find the current bidding level, to open a bid, to raise a bid on an auction lot, or to ask questions about this auction. MINIMUM BID IS ONE-HALF THE LOW ESTIMATE Up to $250.00...............increments of $10.00 $1000.00 - $2500.00.........increments of $100.00

Increments are as follows: $250.00 - $500.00..................increments of $25.00 $500.00 - $1000.00...............increments of $50.00 $2500.00 - $5000.00...........increments of $250.00 $5000.00 - $10000.00...........increments of $500.00 $10,000 & Up..................increments of $1000.00

An example - You bid $900.00 on a lot which is the highest bid received to date. The second highest bid is $550.00. The current high bidding level would be yours at $600.00. Any other bids submitted by others below $900.00 will be automatically topped by a representative of Norman C. Heckler & Company, bidding on your behalf. Norman C. Heckler & Company will not disclose bids pledged by others; only the current bidding level of a lot will be stated upon request. The highest bidder shall prevail. It is the sole right of the auctioneer to settle any dispute between bidders and to regulate the bidding procedure. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse any bid believed not to have been made in good faith. Each lot in the sale has an estimate based on current value as an intended guide to bidding. Incoming bids will be accepted on the closing day until 10 PM EST (7 PM PST). Bids will continue to be accepted (ONLINE ONLY) after 10 PM EST (7 PM PST) for auction lots where there has been activity to trigger a Timed Closing (See Timed Closing under “Return Call” below). If bidding by mail we urge you to send your mail bids as early as possible. We are pleased to receive bids by telephone so that we can answer any questions and assist you in your bidding. 5. Return Call or “Call Back” Process (for items of $1,000.00 or more): Unless you have requested to be removed from the “Call Back” process for a lot, the three top bidders of an item at the time of closing will be given a “Call Back” over the next number of days in order to resolve the final sale of an item. You can request to be removed from this service by “checking” the appropriate box either while bidding online or on your absentee bid form or through verbal agreement by telephone. Only the top three bidders who have bid $1000.00 or greater at the auction closing are entitled to “Call Backs”. It is the responsibility of the bidder to ensure he has qualified for this service. Unless you have requested to be removed from the “Call Back” process, the auctioneers will need to contact you on the days following the auction closing between the hours of 8 A.M. and 9 P.M. Eastern Time. Bidders must provide the appropriate telephone numbers where they can be contacted. Bidders who are in transit must call Heckler during the Call Back period twice daily. Bidders with Call Back privileges on an item may call Heckler when timing on that item seems essential. The bidder will forfeit his rights to a “Call Back” if the auctioneers are unable to reach that bidder. No “Call Backs” will be executed for bids under $1,000.00. In the event of tie bids, the earliest received bid will be the winning bid. Heckler reserves the right to discontinue “Call Backs” (3) three days after the closing date of the sale. TIMED CLOSING: All lots in the auction, regardless of the current high bids, will be part of the timed closing process. This auction will close at 10 PM EST (7 PM PST) on the last day of the sale; however, if there are successful bids on individual items within the last 10 minutes (9:50-10:00 PM EST), then the auction will continue for those individual items. For those items that have received bids in the last 10 minutes, the closing of that item is extended until there are no further bids for a continuous 10 minute period. Lots that have no bidding activity in the last 10 minutes will close at 10 PM EST (7 PM PST). Once the timed closing process is completed, lots below $1000.00 will be considered sold, and no more bidding will take place for these lots. All lots ending at $1000.00 or greater will be part of the Call Back process which will begin the following morning. Call Backs will proceed as described above. 6. Successful Bidders: Successful bidders will be notified by mail. A 17% buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price. Payment is due immediately upon receipt of notification of purchase. No exceptions. Accepted forms of payment are bank check, personal check, cash, or money order. Bank check or money order will facilitate immediate processing. 7. Shipping and Sales Tax: If you are a Connecticut resident, a 6.35% sales tax will be added to your bill, unless you provide Norman C. Heckler & Company with a tax exemption permit. Sales tax is also applicable to out of state buyers who pick up their purchases at our location unless you have a tax exempt number from Connecticut or your state on file with us. Purchases will be shipped only after full payment has been received. All items will be shipped via United States Postal Service. Shipping, handling and insurance are extra. Our shipping charges for most glass items and accessories (excluding foreign shipments) are $20.00 for the first item, $9.00 for each additional item together with insurance costs ($0.60 per $100.00). Additional charges may apply for large or unusually shaped items, and/or certain postal zones which USPS attaches a surcharge. Some items may require transport through a fine arts carrier which can be arranged by the buyer or with Norman C. Heckler & Company. We encourage you to plan for a pickup of your items at our offices. 8. Refunds: Refunds will be given at the discretion of the Auctioneers. Items purchased must be examined and a request for refund made immediately upon receipt of the items. The Auctioneers will be the sole judge in consideration of refunds. It is the Auctioneers sincere intention to consider any reasonable request for a refund pertaining to a major oversight in the description of an object (ie: large epoxy repairs, large chips, extensive cracks, etc.) and not nuances of color, minute flaws, or normal antique “fair wear and tear”. 9. Administration: If at any time during the sale period an act or circumstance takes place which impedes or affects the normal sale procedure, the auction can be postponed or terminated at the auctioneer’s discretion. This would include, but not be limited to, events such as auction host server failure, etc. 10. Terms: Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms.
