SELKIRK POLICY

GUARANTEE: Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers (hereafter “Selkirk”) is committed to providing thorough and accurate descriptions that reflect our belief in service through honesty, integrity and attention to detail. Selkirk guarantees the authenticity of origin as stated in the first bold line of the catalogue description, with the exception of amendments by any oral or written notices or announcements at the time of the auction. “Origin” is defined as the creator, period, culture, or source, as set forth in the first bold line of a lot in the catalog. Exclusions: notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms of Guarantee, Selkirk does not guarantee the names or patterns of any Oriental rugs. All rug dimensions are approximate. Selkirk does not guarantee the authenticity of any item created before 1500. Regarding jewelry: all weights, grades, sizes, and metal content(s) are approximate. Regarding colored stones: purchasers are reminded that colored stones and diamonds may be enhanced by using one or more techniques, including but not limited to: clarity enhancements, resins, and heat treatment. Selkirk makes no warranty, express or implied, to the buyer as to whether a natural stone has been enhanced. Additionally, antiques, by the very nature of their age, have wear that reflects their years of use. As a result, honest wear earned from use is to be expected and is sometimes the proof that an item is an antique. Normal wear will not be listed. Buyers who would like to know the fine points regarding condition should call prior to the auction. We would prefer that you examine the items before you place a bid. All other guarantees of authenticity of authorship, expressed or implied, are hereby disclaimed. There is no other warranty, express or implied. Each and every lot is sold “as is”. BUYING FOR OUR ACCOUNT: The owners and employees of Selkirk believe in maintaining a transparent and fair bidding environment. Because our staff has access to sensitive bidding data for all our customers, Selkirk owners and staff will never buy any item at our auction for ourselves.

LIABILITY: Selkirk guarantees the authenticity of origin of a lot for a period of twenty-one days from the date of the auction and only to the original purchaser of record. If it is determined to Selkirk’s satisfaction that the first bold line is incorrect, the sale will be rescinded, provided the lot is returned to Selkirk in the same condition in which it was at the time of the auction. It is also Selkirk’s policy to have the purchaser obtain, at the purchaser’s expense, the opinion of one (or two in some cases) recognized experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Selkirk and the purchaser, before Selkirk determines whether to rescind the sale under the above guarantee. The purchaser’s sole remedy in the event of disputed authenticity of origin of any lot shall be the rescission of the sale and return of the original purchase price and premium paid by the purchaser. Selkirk accepts no liability of any kind for an item after the gavel has fallen. WITHDRAWN LOTS: Selkirk reserves the right to withdraw any property before the auction and shall have no liability whatsoever for withdrawal of the property.

44 • SELKIRK Winter Gallery Auction • January 23, 2016

SUCCESSFUL BIDDERS: The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer is the buyer. The auctioneer is the sole determinant of accepted or rejected bids and successful buyers. Once the auctioneer’s gavel falls, the successful bidder immediately assumes full risk and responsibility for the purchased lot.

DISPUTED AND REJECTED BIDS: The auctioneer reserves the right to reopen the bidding on any disputed lot. The auctioneer also reserves the right to reject nominal bids and to withdraw from the auction items that do not receive a bid reflective of an item’s worth. We make every attempt, for the benefit of both seller and buyer, to create lots that reflect the quality of an international auction company. ESTIMATES & RESERVES: Presale estimates are intended as guides and may not be reflective of actual gavel price. Some of the items in this auction are subject to a reserve. The reserve is a confidential minimum price agreed upon by the consignor and Selkirk. The reserve will not be higher than the low estimate.

DEFINITIONS OF STATEMENTS: a) “Attributed to” – work is of the period of the named artist and may be the work of that artist, but not definitely so. b) “Circle of” – work of the period closely associated with the artist or from his studio. c) “School of” – work by a pupil or follower of the artist, in his style. d) “After” – in our opinion, a copy of the work of the artist. e) “Signed” – has a signature that in our opinion is the signature of the artist. f) “Bears signature” – has signature that in our opinion might be the signature of the artist. PREVIEWS: We encourage our clients to attend published previews and examine the items before each auction. Preview times are listed in the forward of each catalog.

CONDITION REPORTS: Absentee bidders should call prior to bidding for an updated condition report. Condition reports will be published to our website throughout the days preceding the auction. Buyers should not assume that the absence of a condition report indicates that a lot is without flaw. It is every bidder's responsibility to request a condition report on any lot you plan to bid. The condition report supersedes the catalog description. More detailed photographs may also available. Email condition@selkirkauctions.com.

ABSENTEE BIDS: Selkirk accepts absentee bids in person (during preview), by phone, by fax and on selkirkauctions.com. An experienced bidder executes absentee bids competitively, purchasing each lot as inexpensively as possible for the absentee bid. Although our absentee bidding system is 100% honest, it is not foolproof and Selkirk is not responsible for failing to execute any absentee bids. A $50.00 minimum bid is required on all lots. Absentee bids must be submitted using our standard bidding increments. Selkirk also accepts telephone and live auction internet bids.
