The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The visual condition report and the written condition report (together, the “Online Condition Report”) are provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the Online Condition Reports for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The Online Condition Reports for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the Online Condition Report for the lot. The Online Condition Reports may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the Online Condition Report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's Online Condition Reports are not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
