5. Many lots are of an age or nature which preclude their

being in pristine condition. Some catalogue descriptions

may make reference to damage and or restoration, however,

omission of such a reference does not imply a lot is free

from defects nor does any reference to a particular defect

satisfy themselves by physical inspection of lots, before

bidding, as to the origin, authenticity, quality, age, weight,

size and general description - as lots are sold in their actual

state with all faults, imperfections or errors of description.

damage passing to the buyer or their agent.
