Important Note Regarding Live Auctions
Items offered are part of a live auction at Clars Auction Gallery. Items are offered in numerical order and are auctioned at a pace of approximately 100 lots per hour. p Absentee bids left with LiveAuctioneers are not the same as bids left with the auction house directly. They are executed from a proxy computer terminal in the room against other Internet bidders. Other competitive bids include bidders on the telephone, in the room, and left bids with the auctioneer. LiveAuctioneers does not provide the ability for auction houses to incorporate left bids from the Internet with those left directly with the auction staff. p In the event of a tie bid, the auctioneer has sole discretion to award the lot to the high bidder of his or her choosing.
It is the responsibility of the prospective buyer to inquire as to the condition of a specific lot before bidding. Any condition statement is given as a courtesy to a client, is only an opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact. Clars Auction Gallery shall have no responsibility for any error or omission. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Please review all of the information and photographs before requesting additional information. Additional condition reports are available on request and we will respond as quickly as possible. You are advised to make your requests well in advance of the sale in order to receive the information in a timely manner. All condition report requests must be made via email to onlineclars.com.

NO WARRANTY ALL ITEMS SOLD "AS IS AND WHERE IS" THE GALLERY, ITS AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES, AND THE CONSIGNOR DO NOT WARRANT ANY LOT TO BE MERCHANTABLE OR TO BE SUITED FOR ANY PURPOSE AND THEY DO NOT ASSUME ANY RISK, LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PERSON AS TO AUTHENTICITY, GENUINENESS, CULTURE, SOURCE, ORIGIN, ATTRIBUTION, PERIOD, PURPOSE OR MEASUREMENTS OF ANY LOT. THESE CONDITIONS MAY NOT BE ALTERED OR MODIFIED EXCEPT BY AN INSTRUMENT IN WRITING, SIGNED BY AUCTIONEER AND BUYER. RIGHT OF RECISION Notwithstanding the preceding conditions, if within 21 days of the date of sale of any lot, the original purchaser (a) gives notice in writing to us alleging that the identification of Authorship (as defined below) of such lot is not substantially correct based on a fair reading of the catalogue (including the terms of glossary contained therein), and (b) with 10 days after such notice returns the lots to us in the same condition as at the time of sale and (c) establishes the allegation in the notice to our satisfaction then the sale of such lot will be rescinded and the original purchase price refunded. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed as an admission by us of any representation of fact, express or implied, obligation or responsibility with respect to any lot. The purchaser's sole remedy in the event this paragraph is invoked is as provided herein. Consignor agrees to be bound by our judgment as to Authorship and by our determination regarding rescission. The purchaser expressly acknowledges and agrees that in no event shall we liable for any compensatory, incidental or consequential damages. "Authorship" means only the identity of the creator. The right of rescission does not extend to (a) works executed before 1870 unless these works are determined to be counterfeit, as this is a matter of current scholarly opinion which can change, (b) titles or other identification of offered lots or descriptions of physical condition and size, quality, rarity, importance, provenance, exhibition and literature of historical relevance. Although our best judgment is used in attributing paintings, drawings and sculpture created prior to 1870 through the appropriate use of the glossary terms, and due care is taken to ensure the correctness of the supplemental material, the right of rescission does not extend to any possible errors or omissions therin.

DO WE GUARANTEE THAT A CERTAIN PIECE OF ART IS BY A PARTICULAR ARTIST? PLEASE SEE THE CATALOG DESCRIPTION. 1)If it says "by... (artist's name)" then we guarantee it is by that artist. If the buyer subsequently finds that we are mistaken, we will cancel the sale and refund the purchase price, provided 1) It is done within 3 weeks of the date of the sale and 2) we are given written proof by an accepted expert, as stated above. 2) If the description says "Attributed to ...(artist's name)" we believe it is by that artist but do not guarantee it. 3) If the description says "Signed by (certain artist)" we are not guaranteeing it is by that artist, although it bears his name. 4) If the description says "In the style of" we do not believe it is by that artist, but is similar.
