    Auction Description for Worth Auctions: Art, Antiques, Buick, Bauhaus, Bookbinding, Firefighting, Colt, Lincoln, Photogravures, Martin, Disney, NASA, Etc.
    This auction features a broad range of art and antiques from multiple estates and collections nationwide. Leading off the sale is a 1965 Buick Wildcat. Consigned to us by the initial owner, this classic American sport coupe is in pleasing garaged condition with 59,000 original miles and plenty of deluxe options including power steering and brakes. Another exceptional lot is an important porcelain dinner service manufactured by KPM Berlin under the direction of Bauhaus designer Marguerite Friedlaender Wildenhain. This thirty-nine piece set was brought to the United States by a judge involved in the Nuremberg trials. Also showcased in this auction will be the contents of two private binderies. Tools include an Altair laying press, four wooden finishing presses, a Duplo mini-collator, numerous leather carving and stamping tools, hand-marbled endpapers, and more. Of interest to antique firearms collectors is a Colt Model 1849 cartridge revolver and a collection of powder horns and flasks. Fine art offerings of note will include a monumental autumnal landscape by Walter King Stone, a Lincoln campaign lithograph by Currier & Ives, a suite of paintings by Miriam Ruchames, a large-scale Calder lithograph, an albumen photograph by William Henry Jackson, and an extensive collection of photogravures by prominent photographers dating from the 1920s to the 1970s. Other items of interest are a pre-1927 Martin ukelele, several sets of contemporary furniture, a colorful hanging textile from Colombia, nineteenth-century decorative glassware, vintage Bakelite bangles, Disney collectibles, NASA memorabilia, a large Coca-Cola sign, various wind-up toys, a squirrel cage, a marble headstone, early Wonder Woman comics, antique astronomy tools, a robot dial radio, historical firefighting equipment, and much more.

    Condition Guarantee
    We endeavor to provide as much information as we can for each lot we offer and earnestly strive to provide a fair, objective sense of the quality and condition of each item. Our listings always include one or more images of the actual item to assist bidders in their assessment process. Further, except where otherwise stated, we offer a full refund guarantee that our descriptions are free of false information. Any concerns must be brought to our attention within 14 days of the lot's shipment date. We endeavor to provide as much information as possible and describe condition issues as fairly as we are able. Where we have identified particular faults or damage to items it must be understood that reference to such faults does not imply the absence of others, nor does the lack of such a reference imply that an item is free of faults. Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the suitability of lots before buying. Written and oral descriptions are our opinions and should in no way be construed as a guarantee of any kind as to age, condition, materials or any other feature of items being sold. Many particulars will be subjective in nature and the auctioneer reserves the right to make final decisions as to whether descriptions contain erroneous information of a nature substantial enough to cause false impressions for buyers. Any time we determine that we have made a false statement in a listing, the bidder is invited to return the item for a full refund, with our apologies, except for listings where all sales are specified as final. To qualify for a refund, such false information must be clearly and indisputably incorrect, using a reasonable person standard. Subjective differences of opinion do not constitute false information. We cannot and do not claim that our descriptions are complete, as such a standard is a matter of subjective definition. Any details or criteria beyond what we have provided are the responsibility of the buyer to estimate or establish. Our staff are eager to answer any questions prior to auction and we strongly encourage all bidders to preview items in person before bidding. All items are sold as-is, where-is with no warranties or guarantees of any kind, express or implied. All items are available for examination at our gallery, prior to auction. Your bidding will signify that you have examined the items as fully as you desire, or that you have chosen not to examine them. All item descriptions are subject to change up until time of sale and the written terms in place at the time of sale of the item, shall be the only terms that are binding to the sale. IMPORTANT NOTE: All sales are final on lots for which we receive late payment (more than 10 days after the auction); all lots included on invoices for which payment is not made within ten days of the auction shall be sold as-is and are ineligible for return, regardless of any errors in the description(s).
    Shipping Arrangements
    We take care to pack well, and ship in a timely fashion. Buyer pays for stated shipping within the United States, international customers please contact us for a shipping quote. We offer reduced shipping for winners of multiple lots, as follows: buyer pays full shipping amount of the won lot that bears the highest shipping charge, and receives a 30% discount on the stated shipping amount for all other won lots. For example, a winner of three lots with stated shipping charges of $4.50, $6.50 and $8.00 will pay $15.70 rather than the full $19.00. All books and other media ship via USPS Media Mail. Typical delivery time within the continental U.S. is 5-10 days. If your order is time sensitive, please contact us for a Priority Mail upgrade. Insurance is available and recommended (please note that by declining insurance, you assume the risk of loss or damage in transit) on shipped packages at a flat rate of $1.00 per $100.00 of coverage for domestic shipments and $2.00 per $100.00 of coverage for all international shipments (please let us know if you are adding insurance to your total). All shipments with a total value of $200.00 or greater, as well as all packages being shipped outside the United States, will require mandatory insurance coverage and that charge will be added to the shipping amount on the invoices.

Worth Auctions reserves the right to offer any lots for which payment is not received within ten days of the auction, to the back-up bidder or other interested parties. In the case of any lot for which payment is not received within ten days of the auction, the high bidder understands and accepts that he/she relinquishes any right of title to that lot, should Worth Auctions arrange to sell said material to another buyer. Worth Auctions making such an offer to another buyer does not release the winning bidder from the legally binding contractual obligations accepted by bidding; the winning bidder remains legally bound to complete the purchase until such time as he/she receives written notification from Worth Auctions that the material has been sold to another buyer. Winning bidder agrees to pay any difference between the original high bid and the offer accepted by Worth Auctions from a back-up bidder or other party. Worth Auctions reserves the right to re-list in a later auction, any lots for which payment is not received within ten days of the auction and in that event, the bidder agrees to pay Worth Auctions all foregone commission amounts and buyer's premiums which would have been earned had the original high bid been paid. Additionally, winning bidders who do not pay within ten days from the auction agree to compensate Worth Auctions for any and all collection and reasonable legal fees incurred by Worth Auctions in its effort to secure payment from the winning bidder, including but not limited to litigation. If payment is made after ten days have elapsed since the auction, all sales are final on the lots included on said invoice(s); lots for which payment is made but not within ten days of the auction shall be sold as-is and are ineligible for return, regardless of any errors in the description(s).
    Sales Tax
