treaty. The effects of the sale directly affect Seller-Principal and the Buyer, without taking other liability on the part of MAISON

Information for Buyers - General Conditions of Sale

1. Bidder Registration
To buy at auction you must register your personal details (valid identity document, social security number and bank references)
before the sale, in the days of exhibition or through the website By registering, the purchaser expressly
declares under its own responsibility to have read the General Conditions of Sale of MAISON BIBELOT Srl and to have them fully
accepted. Sales shall be awarded to the highest bidder and are for cash. Participation in the auction is personal. The payer must be the
successful tenderer. The possible participation in the name and on behalf of third parties must be expressly authorized in writing by
MAISON BIBELOT Srl, which may for that purpose require the filing of a certified proxy and appropriate bank reference.

2. Goods subject to sale
The goods object of the auction or private treaty will rarely be, because of their own nature and their antiquity, in a perfect condition
and may have signs of wear, defects, other defects, restorations or repairs. The Buyer of such goods is aware that they are used goods
and therefore can present flaws described above and may be the subject of the actions described above. We always recommend the
direct view of the work in order to determine characteristics, the actual state, the state of preservation, the size, the quality, the
authenticity, attribution and provenance of the works. In the case of lots of special value, we suggest you to benefit from the advice
of a restorer or a trusted adviser before making an offer. Buyers assume responsibility for their own choices and accept the eventual
interventions and defects that, at the time of conclusion of the contract were known or readily recognizable, or that you could not
ignore with due diligence. Authenticity, attribution and provenance of lots on sale are declared by the Principal-Seller, who assumes
responsibility for the statements. MAISON BIBELOT Srl does not carry out checks and controls in this regard.

3. Pre-auction Viewing
The auction is preceded by several days of exhibition during which the Sales Director and experts of MAISON BIBELOT Srl will be
available to Customers for any information about the lots in auction, and to provide a condition report of a particular lot. All
statements by us in the catalogue entry for the property or in the condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, are
statements of opinion and are not to be relied on as statements of fact. Such statements do not constitute a representation, warranty or
assumption of liability by us of any kind. Any statement regarding author, attribution, date, origin, provenance and conditions is an
opinion and not a fact. The exhibition aims to take full, complete and thorough understanding of the characteristics of the state of use,
the state of preservation, the actual size and in general of all the quality of the works, including the authenticity, attribution and
origin. As already described in paragraph no. 2 of the above document, lots rarely
found in a perfect state: and that by their very nature, since they are used goods. It follows the importance of participation in the
exhibition and the importance of a careful and conscious vision of the lots during the exhibition days. For this reason, in order to
allow conscious purchases, MAISON BIBELOT Srl recommends potential Buyers to view lots personally or to have them inspected
by third parties - at their own expense - during the days of exhibition.
