Bidders Terms Continued:


may apply to some lots. The buyer pays an additional 4% on the sale price for works of art selling

between 1000 to 50,000 Euros (lesser percentages may apply in higher brackets). This is payable to a living artist or to his or

her estate in accordance with European directive 2001/84/EC


The estimated values shown after each lot are the auctioneer’s opinion of what each lot may realise.

The price realised may be in excess of this figure, it may also be less than.


You may bid by mail before the sale. Please use the form provided. Enter the maximum you are prepared

to offer for each lot and the auctioneer will represent you. Lots are knocked down at one step above the next highest bid, and

not necessarily your highest bid. For example: Your highest bid is £110 and the next highest bid is £80: the hammer price is

£85. It is the responsibility of the bidder to check details of bids placed. All bids will be held valid even if placed in error. The

auctioneer will not be responsible for mistakes by the purchaser. Lots purchased on behalf of postal bidders will be forwarded

by the most practical method at the risk of the purchaser. Postage, packing, freight and insurance costs or part thereof shall be

borne by the purchaser.

Each lot is sold as genuine unless otherwise described in the sale catalogue.

Any lot listed under collections and various or stated to comprise or contain a collection that is under-described shall be put

up for sale not subject to rejection and shall be taken by the purchaser with all (if any) faults. Lots offered “as is” or “offered

on their merits” may contain items that are not genuine and therefore may not be returned for any reason.


Bids by E-mail, or via our internet bidding form at

will be accepted up to

2.30pm prior to the date of sale. Any bids received after that time will not be valid unless Lockdales have specifically

acknowledged the bids by returning confirmation prior to the commencement of the sale. Any bid made by electronic means

should be acknowledged by 3.00pm on the day prior to the sale – if confirmation has not been received please telephone to

confirm bids, between 3.00pm and 4.30pm. In all other respects the receipt of electronic bids will be dealt with in the same

manner as postal bids, as detailed in the section dealing with postal bidding above.


Telephone bids may be made. We do not accept any responsibility for errors made in taking bids,

especially by telephone, though every effort is made to ensure accuracy.


Successful postal bidders will be sent a Pro Forma invoice immediately after the sale with details of

payment methods. All invoices must be paid within seven days of the sale or the lot(s) may be deemed in default and any

subsequent loss incurred on resale becomes the responsibility of the bidder.


Room bidders must register and obtain a bidding number on arrival. If successful in obtaining a lot, please

ensure that you display your bidding number clearly to the auctioneer and that it is your number that is called out. If you have

any doubt about the price or buyer: please draw this to the auctioneer’s attention immediately. Room bidders may settle their

invoices on the day of sale, or within seven days at our offices. You may pay for and collect your purchases at any time during

the sale.

A Buyers Premium of 15%+VAT will apply to all lots.


The bidding advances shall be regulated by the auctioneer and shall be at his discretion. He has the right to

refuse any bids. The auctioneer reserves the right to bid on behalf of clients and vendors, but shall not be liable for errors or

omissions in executing instructions to bid. The auctioneer acts as agent only, and shall not be liable for any default of the

purchaser or vendor.
