Auction Description

The Fine Rugs and Carpets Auction by Grogan & Company
The Fine Rugs & Carpets Auction features over 170 examples, ranging from fine city workshop rugs to village and tribal weavings, as well as a selection of room size decorative carpets. The centerpiece of the auction is 65 rugs from the collection of James Opie. His collection features several ivory field Shekarlu rugs, many Khamseh Bird rugs, two rare Tiger rugs, and numerous south Persian bags and bag faces, and it presents an opportunity for rug collectors to acquire significant pieces with an impeccable provenance. Another 100 rugs in the auction surround the Opie collection, and chief among them is a rare and exemplary Salor Chuval. The brilliant red, stunning design balance, and remarkably fine condition of this Chuval come together and create a “best of type” Turkomen weaving. The auction also includes many fine Bidjar and other Persian rugs that were sold to Boston Area collectors by the late John Collins, as well as many fine Caucasian and Turkish collector rugs.

No statement anywhere, whether oral or written, shall be deemed such a guarantee, warranty or representation. Prospective bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size and whether or not it has been repaired or restored. We and the Consignor make no representation or warranty as to whether the purchaser acquires any copyrights, including but not limited to any reproduction rights, in the property. However, if within 14 days of the sale of any lot, the purchaser gives notice in writing to us that the lot is counterfeit and within 10 days after such notice, the purchaser returns the lot to us in the same condition as when sold, and demonstrates to our satisfaction that the lot is a counterfeit, we will refund the purchase price.

4. We reserve the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the event of the dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt on our part as to the validity of any bid, the auctioneer will have the final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record in conclusive. Although in our discretion we will execute order bids or accept telephone bids as a convenience to clients who are not present at auctions, we are not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection therewith.

5. If the auctioneer decides that any bid is below the value of the article offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the article from sale, and if, having acknowledged an opening bid, he decides that any advance thereafter is insufficient; he may reject the advance and may thereafter withdraw the property.

6. On the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, title to the offered lot will pass to the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer, (subject to fulfillment by such bidder of all of the conditions set forth herein), and such bidder thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility therefore.

7. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before the sale.

8. If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with the purchaser, in addition to other remedies available to us and the consignor by law, including without limitation the right to hold the purchaser liable for the total purchase price, we at our option may either (a) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser or (b) resell the property at public auction without reserve, and the purchaser will be liable for any deficiency, as well as costs, including handling charges, the expense of both sales, our commission on both sales at our regular rates, all other charges due hereunder and incidental damages.

Packing and handling of purchased lots by us is at the entire risk of the purchaser. In no event will we be liable for damage to glass or frames, regardless of the cause.

12. In no event will our liability to a purchaser exceed the purchase price actually paid.

13. No invalidity or partial invalidity or unenforceability of any provision provided herein shall effect or impair the validity of enforceability of any other provision hereof.

14. Bidding at an auction, whether present, by proxy (agent, order, telephone, online bid), or by any other means, constitutes your acceptance of these Terms and Condition of Sale.
