    The lots listed in this catalogue will be offered by Charleston Estate Auctions as owner or as agent for consignor(s) subject to the following terms and conditions. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these Conditions of Sale.
    BEFORE THE SALE
    Condition reports are usually available either in the catalog description or on request. All lots are sold AS IS and without recourse and Charleston Estate Auctions nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots. Neither Charleston Estate Auctions nor its consignor(s) makes any express or implied warranty or representation of any kind or nature with respect to merchantability, fitness for purpose, correctness of the catalogue or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, material, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, exhibitions, literature or historical significance of any lot sold. The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. No statement, whether written or oral, and whether made in the catalogue, or in supplements to the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, the remarks of an auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Charleston Estate Auctions and its consignor(s) make no warranty or representation, express or implied that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. Charleston Estate Auctions expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in the catalogue.
    AT THE SALE
    Charleston Estate Auctions has the right, at our complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or participation in any auction and to reject any bid.
    Bidding as Principal
    When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer?s premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed upon in writing with Charleston Estate Auctions before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Charleston Estate Auctions, and that Charleston Estate Auctions will only look to the principal for payment.


    Absentee Bids
    We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids given to us at least 24 hours prior to the sale for the convenience of clients who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. Bids must be placed in U.S. dollars. If we receive written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and these are the highest bids on the lot at the auction, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with the written bid.
    Telephone Bids
    On lots with a low estimate of $300 and above and if a prospective buyer makes arrangements with us prior to the commencement of the sale we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate in the bidding by telephone but we do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions in connection with telephone bidding. These telephone bids may be recorded at the discretion of Charleston Estate Auctions.
    Online Bids
    We will use all reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the Internet or software malfunctions related to the execution of online bids.
    Reserves
    Some lots in the sale may be subject to a reserve which is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate of the lot. Reserves are agreed upon with consignors. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. With respect to lots that are offered without reserve, unless there are already competing bids, the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, will generally open the bidding at half of the low estimate for the lot. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer may proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is recognized, and then continue up from that amount.
    Auctioneers Discretion
    The auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive.

    Successful Bid
    The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the case of a tie bid, the winning bidder will determined by the auctioneer at his or her sole discretion. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Charleston Estate Auctions sale record shall be conclusive. Title passes upon the fall of the auctioneers hammer to the highest acknowledged bidder subject to the Conditions of Sale set forth herein, and the bidder assumes full risk and responsibility.
