) plus legal fees (VAT may be reclaimed upon proof of export outside the EU

within a maximum one month period). In accordance with the provisions of

Article 321 - 4 of the Commercial Code, the asterisk ( ) marking some lots

indicates that they are owned by an associate of Pierre Bergé & Associates.


Pierre Bergé & associés is legally obliged to collect the sums due under the

resale right for the sale of the lots and to return them to the collecting agency

or the beneficiary of the right.

The buyer shall be responsible for the payment of the resale charge and shall

be invoiced at the same time as the tender price and the costs referred to in

the first paragraph.

In the event that PBA becomes aware that a sale is subject to the resale duty

only after the lot has been tendered, that duty will be invoiced to the buyer


The selling price used as the basis for collecting the resale duty shall be

calculated, excluding taxes, on the hammer price. It is calculated work by

work. The applicable rate is :

- 4% for the price range up to 50,000 €

- 3% for the price range between EUR 50,000.01 € and EUR 200,000 €

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.


Bidders who cannot attend the auction in person and who are wishing to bid

by absentee or telephone bid are required to submit bids on the Absentee

Bid Form of which a copy is printed in the last pages of the catalogue. This

form must be received at least two days in advance of the sale, with the

bidder’s bank details. Pierre Bergé & associates provides telephone bids

as a convenience to bidders who cannot attend the auction in person and

therefore will not be held responsible if a phone connection problem occurs,

under no circumstances Pierre Bergé & Associates employees will be held

responsible if an error shall occur in the execution of the telephone bids.


No lot will be given to the purchaser before full payment of the sale price,

purchaser fees and VAT included.

In the event of payment by check or bank transfer, the delivery of the prizes

may be deferred until the actual receipt of the amount due.

Upon adjudication, the item will be the sole responsibility of the purchaser.

The purchaser will himself be responsible for ensuring his acquisitions, and

PBA declines all responsibility for any damage that the object may incur, and

this as soon as the acquisition is pronounced. All formalities, especially those

relating to export, as well as transport remain the sole responsibility of the


Transport and export quotes on request at APICE.

Pierre Bergé & associés informs buyers that lots made over 70 years ago by

authors who are no longer living and sold at a price lower than EUR 13,500

may be definitively removed from Italian territory by means of self-certification

submitted through the MiBACT online system (SUE) and endorsed by the

competent Export Office (the transporter APICE MILANO may take care

of this).

The same self-certification regime shall apply to lots made less than 70 years

ago by authors who are no longer living, or to lots made by living authors.

On the other hand, the definitive exit from the Italian territory of lots made by

authors no longer living for more than 70 years and sold at a price higher than

EUR 13,500 requires the issue of a certificate of free circulation issued by the

competent Export Office (the transporter APICE MILANO can deal with this).

The issue of a self-certificate or a certificate of free circulation, as the case

may be, must be carried out by and at the expense of the purchasers.

In case of notification of a lot by the Italian State, the buyer has 30 days to

cancel the purchase of the lot.

Sold lots can be collected at Castello di Cassano Magnago, Piazza Santa

Maria 2, 21012, Cassano Magnago (Varese)
