Guaranteed Property
The seller of lots with this symbol has been guaranteed a minimum price from one auction or a series of auctions. This guarantee may be provided by Sotheby’s or jointly by Sotheby’s and a third party. Sotheby’s and any third parties providing a guarantee jointly with Sotheby’s benefit financially if a guaranteed lot is sold successfully and may incur a loss if the sale is not successful. A third party providing a guarantee jointly with Sotheby's may provide an irrevocable bid, or otherwise bid, on the guaranteed property. If this online-only auction has a printed and/or PDF catalogue and the Guaranteed Property symbol for a lot is not included in that catalogue, the symbol will be included on the lot’s specific webpage and a notice will be added to the Sotheby’s webpage for the auction. If every lot in the online-only auction catalogue is guaranteed, this will be included on the webpage for the auction and, where there is a printed and/or PDF catalogue the Important Notices in that catalogue will state this and this symbol will not be used for each lot.
