As a convenience to the buyer Wilkinson’s are pleased to provide condition reports,
which are meant as a guide only. Buyers are reminded that they should inspect the
property at the pre-sale viewings to satisfy themselves as to the condition, any
restoration, damage, origin, date, age, authorship, attribution and provenance.
The absence of reference to the condition of the lots in the catalogue (and online
catalogue) description does not imply that the lot is absent of imperfections or
faults of any kind.
Any statement made by the Auctioneer from the rostrum before accepting any bids
shall be deemed to supersede any conditions, notices, descriptions and statements
made in the catalogue are elsewhere.
Wilkinson’s endeavour to catalogue all lots correctly, however should any lot prove
to be a deliberate forgery, the auctioneers upon receipt of a written notice of
such within seven days of the sale, shall rescind the sale, provided that the lot
is returned within fourteen days of the sale in the same condition as at the time
of sale. The benefit of this guarantee shall not be assignable. By making a bid,
each buyer conditions, the damages recoverable by the vendor or the auctioneers
from the defaulters shall include any loss incurred on sale, together with commission
and expenses in respect of both sales.
