BEFORE THE SALE 3.1

Examination of goods You are strongly advised to examine personally any goods in which you are interested, before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually available on request. We provide no guarantee to you other than in relation to Forgeries, as set out in clause 5.10 of these Terms and Conditions.

3.2

Catalogue descriptions 3.2.1 Statements by us in the catalogue or condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size, medium, attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimated selling price of any Lot are merely statements of opinion, and are not to be relied on as statements of definitive fact. Catalogue illustrations are for guidance only, and should not be relied on either to determine the tone or colour of any item or to reveal imperfections. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this price is either the price at which the Lot will sell or its value for any other purpose. 3.2.2 Many items are of an age or nature which precludes their being in perfect condition and some descriptions in the catalogue or given by way of condition report make reference to damage and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance only and the absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. 3.3.3 Other than as set out in clause 5.10, and in the absence of fraud, neither the Seller nor we, nor any of our employees or agents, are responsible for the correctness of any statement as to the authorship, origin, date, age, attribution, genuineness or provenance of any Lot nor for any other errors of description or for any faults or defects in any Lot. Any warranty of any kind whatsoever is excluded by this clause.

If accepted by us, such request shall have the same effect as notice of an intention to question the genuineness or description of the Lot for the purposes of clause 5.10 of these Terms and Conditions and the provisions of clause 5.10 shall apply accordingly. 3.4.2

Notice of a request for an expert opinion or Certificate of Authenticity must give the reason why such opinion is required and specify the identity of your proposed expert which will be subject to agreement by us.

3.4.4

We will not normally accept a request for an extension on account of condition.

Should Spink China Limited accept a request for an extension under the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, the fact may be stated by the Auctioneer from the rostrum prior to the sale of the Lot.

3.4.6

4.10 Bidding by the Spink Group 4.10.1 We reserve the right to bid on Lots on the Seller’s behalf up to the amount of the Reserve (if any), which will never be above the low estimate printed in the auction catalogue. 4.10.2 The Spink Group reserves the right to bid on and purchase Lots as principal. 4.11 The Auctioneer’s Discretion The auctioneer has the right at his absolute discretion to refuse any bid to advance the bidding in such manner as he may decide to withdraw or divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots and, in the case of error or dispute, to put an item up for bidding again. 4.12 Successful Bid Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid, provided always that such bid is higher than the Reserve (where applicable), and the conclusion of a contract for sale between you and the Seller. 4.13 After Sale Arrangements If you enter into any private sale agreements for any Lot with the Seller within 60 days of the auction, we, as exclusive agents of the Seller reserve the right to charge you the applicable Buyer’s Premium in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, and the seller a commission in accordance with the terms of the seller’s agreement.

If you give us instructions to bid on your behalf, by using the form provided in our catalogues or via our website, we shall use reasonable endeavours to do so, provided these instructions are received not later than 24 hours before the auction. If we receive commission bids on a particular Lot for identical amounts, and at auction these bids are the highest bids for the Lot, it will be sold to the person whose bid was received first. Commission bids are undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale, and the conduct of the auction may be such that we are unable to bid as requested. Since this is undertaken as a free service to prospective buyers on the terms stated, we cannot accept liability for failure to make a commission bid. You should therefore always attend personally if you wish to be certain of bidding.

4.6 4.5

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

5.2

Buyer’s Premium In addition to the Hammer Price, you must pay us the Buyer’s Premium at a rate of 20% of the final Hammer Price of each Lot. Import VAT and Refunds (Only for Lots shipped back to the United Kingdom) 5.2.1 Import VAT of 5% will be levied on the Hammer Price of all Lots that are shipped back to the United Kingdom after the sale. 5.2.2 Import VAT refunds 5.2.1 As we remain liable to account for import VAT on all Lots unless proof of export is held, you will be asked to deposit all amounts of import VAT invoiced. However, if a Spink nominated shipper is instructed, then any refundable import VAT will not be collected. In all other cases, credits will be made when proof of export is provided. 5.2.2 If you export the Lot from the United Kingdom you must return the valid proof of export certificate to us within 30 days of export. If you fail to return the proof of export certificate to us within such period and you have not already accounted to us for the import VAT, you will be liable to us for the full amount of the import VAT due on such Lot and we shall be entitled to invoice you for this sum. 5.2.3 To apply for a refund of any import VAT paid, the proof of export certificate must be sent to our accounts department clearly marked ‘import VAT refund’ within 30 days of export. No payment will be made where the total amount of import VAT refundable is less than HK$ 650.00. 5.2.4 Where an EU buyer purchases a Lot on which import VAT has been charged, no refund of import VAT is available from us.

You must provide us with your full name and permanent address and, if so requested, details of the bank from which any payments to us will be made. You must pay the full amount due on your invoice within seven days after the date of the sale. This applies even if you wish to export the Lot and an export licence is (or may be) required.

5.3.2

You will not acquire title to the Lot until all amounts due to us have been paid in full to us, even in circumstances where we have released the Lot to you.
