Terms & Conditions

This is a live auction.  Fairfield Auction is an established regional auction house with over $25,000,000 in sales over the past decade.  We value the trust put in us by both buyers and sellers.  
 
Bids accepted at the BidSquare bidding console may or may not be accepted by the auctioneer.  THE FINAL BID FOR EACH ITEM SHALL BE ACCEPTED AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE AUCTIONEER.  The actual buyer and final bid shall be as recorded by the auctioneer, even if different from that recorded on the BidSquare system.  By registering for this auction bidder agrees that Fairfield Auction shall be held harmless for any and all damages as a result of a clerking error on BidSquare.  Bids on the floor generally take precedence.
 
CONDITION REPORTS
All condition reports are to the best of our ability, but not guaranteed. Buyer are encouraged to inspect the merchandise in person during the auction preview times. Any refunds made based on condition problems will be made when the problem is deemed very significant AND reported within 10 days of sale- NO EXCEPTIONS. ALL REQUESTS FOR IMAGES AND CONDITION REPORTS SHOULD BE MADE AT LEAST 48 HOURS AHEAD OF SALE.We have provided condition reports for the vast majority of lots.  If you require further information please make a specific request by email and we will respond by updating the BIDSQUARE condition report- so please check there for your response.    Requests that are too general won't be answered when a condition report is already online.  Requests for "more images" without specific requests won't be honored.  We generally provide only overall condition reports on group lots.  All works on paper should be assumed to have NOT been examined out of the frame.  We are not able to make page counts on books- condition for books is overall and only based on a quick inspection.  We are not qualified to make full condition reports on certain specialized items, such as musical instruments, vehicles or mechanical antiques so those reports will be cursory. THE ABSENCE OF A CONDITION REPORT DOES NOT IMPLY THE LOT IS WITHOUT DEFECTS
 
Our description of a lot as EXCELLENT means we found no damage or unusual wear- it does not mean flawless.  A description of VERY GOOD indicates showing general normal wear from use- but no major defects.  GOOD is something with considerable wear from use, but still presentable.  FAIR is a highly worn and used object showing numerous defects.  POOR is a "place holder" object that has serious condition issues.
 
 
 
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE 
1. Though all description and commentary are believed to be correct, neither Auctioneer nor Consignor makes any warranties or representations of any kind with respect to merchandise with the exception of the catalog description which shall be honored with respect to age and origin and authorship of art works, and only to the extent that any such errors in the catalog description materially affect the value of such item.  Condition reports are made to the best of our ability, but are not guaranteed. THE ABSENCE OF A CONDITION REPORT DOES NOT IMPLY THE LOT IS WITHOUT DEFECTS. Framed art works are not inspected out of frame unless so indicated.  Works on paper may have issues not visible if they haven't been inspected out of frame. Buyer shall not rely on the Auctioneer, employees, or advertisements in any part, and must rely only on the catalog description and his own inspection and opinion of all items.  CATALOG DESCRIPTIONS MAY BE REVISED UP TO THE TIME OF SALE. No employee is authorized to make any warranties, expressed or implied, on behalf of Fairfield Auction. 
 
Warranty is limited to AGE, GENERAL ORIGIN AND AUTHORSHIP OF ARTWORKS.  Additional description reflects our best opinion.  All sizes and other measurements are approximate.  Any and all claims made to Fairfield Auction or consignor regarding age, authenticity, origin, rarity, provenance, size, or other aspects of description must be made within 10 days of the auction date and in writing. IF ITEM IS BEING SHIPPED, IT IS THE BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ASSURE RECEIPT OF ITEM IN TIME TO ACT ON WARRANTY SHOULD THEIR BE AN ISSUE. Our warranty is limited to the selling price and to errors that are substantial to value and not already apparent in images provided. Claims must be made against the final catalog as revised by any addendum or auctioneer announcements.  Claims may not be made against advertisements, website descriptions, or the preliminary catalog offered on our website.   Items described as "possibly", "probably", "manner of", "style of" or "attributed to" are not guaranteed, but represent our best opinion.  No guarantees are made as to condition.
 
2. The Auctioneer is acting as agent only and is not responsible for acts of its principals. If any dispute arises, the Auctioneer's word is final. 
 
3. Where the Consignor is indebted to or has a monetary guarantee from Fairfield Auction, and in certain other instances, Auctioneer may have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds there from other than its commissions, and may bid therefore to protect its own interests.

In either case payment must be paid in full within 5 business days of sale, otherwise Auctioneer may resell merchandise at public or private sale and retain 20% deposit as liquidated damages.  Auctioneer may, at his discretion, hold purchases until check clears.
 
7. A buyer' premium of 23% is added to the price knocked down by the Auctioneer for BidSquare bidders. If you are the successful bidder on a lot at $100, your invoice will include a buyer's premium of $23 for a total of $123. Sales tax is applied as directed by the state of Connecticut.

9. Bidders not present are required to register for phone/absentee bidding no later than 3pm the day prior to the auction.  Phone bidders will be called from the auction house.  No incoming calls are taken for phone bids or condition reports the day of auction.

All items sold AS IS, WHERE IS. ALL SALES FINAL.
