In accordance with the law, the auctioneer is legally responsible for the
contents of the catalogue, subject to any adjustment announced during the
presentation of the lot and duly noted in the official sale record. Condition
reports describing damage, imperfection or restoration are done to facilitate
the prospection and shall remain subject to the discretion of personal
examination by the buyer or his representative. The absence of such
reference in the catalogue does not imply that an object is exempt from any
defect or restoration. The pre - sale exhibition allows prospective buyers to
inspect property and therefore, no claim will be registered regarding usual
restorations and small accidents.
The sale will follow the lot numbers according to the catalogue. PBA has
discretion to set the increment of the bids and all bidders must comply with
this. The highest and final bidder will be the buyer. In case of a double bidding
declared by the auctioneer, the lot will be immediately reoffered for sale and
all present prospective buyers will be able to bid a second time. At the striking
of the hammer, risk and responsibility for the lot passes to the buyer. He is
therefore responsible for insuring his lots as soon as the auction is final.

bidder’s bank details. Pierre Bergé & associates provides telephone bids
as a convenience to bidders who cannot attend the auction in person and
