24 FEBRUARY 2014 AN URBAN LEGEND

AN URBAN LEGEND
The legendary set designer and art director
Simon Costin tells us why his beloved Museum of
British Folklore is so relevant to todays world, and
invites us inside his extraordinary London home to
explore his magical collection

I have always been interested in Myths and Folk Stories


for as long as I can remember. For a child they offer a
means of making sense of the world. They represent
a series of lessons that work on both a practical and a
psychological level. They are fundamental to humanity
and have always been with us and we ignore them at
our peril. Quite often over the years, I have tried to find
a place where I could learn more about Britain's rich folk
heritage only to discover that we don't actually have any
such institution. This is strange really when we produce
so much of it. Over the past fifteen years I've become
increasingly involved with the customs themselves, not
only going to witness them but also taking part when
invited to do so. They represent a moment out of time,
where the norms of existence are bent or forgotten.
While we are rooted in the here and now, they help to put
us in touch with our past and help to build community
spirit, foster an interest in where we have come from
and the things that are important to us. It was with
this in mind that I decided to look into opening the UK's
first ever Museum dedicated solely to researching and
celebrating our native customs and traditions.
Folklore can be seen as being a body of expressive
culture, traditional art, literature, knowledge, and
practice that is disseminated largely through oral
communication and behavioural example. It comes
under the heading 'intangible heritage' due to its nature
and having been deemed to be 'low culture' for so long.
Many unlikely things could be thought of as folklore or
folk culture, such as urban legends, children's rhymes,

conspiracy theories, UFO abduction reports, graffiti and


roadside memorial tributes for example. It is a hard
thing to pin down and no one description will suffice.
Most often people might think of folklore as something
that is simply 'old', 'rural' or 'dying out'. In fact folklore,
while it connects people with their past, is also being
created on a daily basis and is a great cultural signifier. It
is vital our native heritage is researched and maintained
for future generations. I see the museum as filling
a yawning gap within the cultural landscape of this
country, and as a means for people from all walks of life
to gain knowledge, and a deeper understanding, of our
unique folk culture.
Folk culture runs through our lives in ways people don't
always recognise, from street slang to urban myths.
We construct ritual and give it meaning everyday in
response to fundamental human desires. We have
constructed wayside shrines ever since the first traveller
was killed on a road and we still do it when a bicycle is
painted white and chained to the railings close to where
a cyclist was killed. The Museum of British Folklore will
reflect what it means to be human in the 21st century
and will draw on the customs and traditions of the
UK to show the world the things we hold dear and
how they resonate in the wider community and the
commonality we all have as human beings.
The Museum of British Folklore is currently looking for
land to build on and the funds to build with. To find out
more visit www.museumofbritishfolklore.com.

24 FEBRUARY 2014 AN URBAN LEGEND

AT HOME
WITH
SIMON COSTIN
Describe your home in three words?

In another life Id be a Shaman.

Eclectic, personal, magical.

If I could live anywhere else in the world Id live in


Italy, probably close to the Garda Lakes.

How do you choose pieces for your home?


Ive always felt that the objects I have in my home found
me, rather than the other way around. It is very much a
natural accumulation as I tend to be drawn towards things
with a certain forlorn sensibility. I keep on adding and
moving things around in order to set up new dialogues
between objects and the context I put them into.
Where do you discover them?
I am often to be found in flea markets in London, Paris
and New York. In the UK I also go to Kempton Antique
Market and Ardingly Antique Market. Wherever I visit I
can usually sniff out the local junk and bric-a-brac shops.
Whats your advice to the novice collector?

Why dont more people Read more and learn to


tolerate each other if they cant find it in themselves
to love.
The last great book I read was The Goldfinch by
Donna Tartt.
My most recent wonderful discovery was
Snowshill Manor in Worcestershire.
If I could share a nightcap with anyone it would be
Angela Carter.

Be ruled by the heart, not the head.

If I could breakfast with anyone it would be


Alone, Im terrible in the mornings!

If you could see one era revived in 2015, what would it be?

On my coffee table is A pile of films to be watched.

The Decadent Movement or Vienna Secession.

By my nightstand is The Great God Pan by


Arthur Machen.

Whose style most inspires you?


Gabriele D'Annunzio and his house in Italy.

Great style is Knowing what you like and not being


afraid to live with it.

What is your favourite building in London?

Home is where Friends and loved ones meet.

Dennis Severs House in Spitalfields.


Which room do you spend most time in?
I work from home so tend to be either in the studio, at
the top of the house, where it is very light and quiet or in
the kitchen if Im writing as its closer to the kettle.

If I could own something Ill never have the chance to it


would be The Kunstkammer of Rudolf II.

Property incorporating materials from endangered and


other protected species
Please see Property Incorporating Protected Species for
further information.

Artists Resale Right (Droit de Suite)


In these cases the lot is subject to Artists Resale Right.
The buyer agrees to pay to Christies an amount equal to the
resale royalty. Resale royalty applies where the Hammer Price
is 1,000 Euro or more and the amount cannot be more than
12,500 Euro per lot. The amount is calculated as follows:
Royalty
For the portion of the Hammer Price (in Euro)
4.00%
up to 50,000
3.00%
between 50,000.01 and 200,000
1.00%
between 200,000.01 and 350,000
0.50%
between 350,000.01 and 500,000
0.25%
in excess of 500,000
Invoices will, as usual, be issued in Pounds Sterling. For the
purposes of calculating the resale royalty the Pounds Sterling/
Euro rate of exchange will be the European Central Bank
reference rate on the day of the sale.

Christies Interest
From time to time, Christies may offer a lot which it owns in
whole or in part. Such property is identified in the catalogue
with the symbol next to its lot number.
On occasion, Christies has a direct financial interest in lots
consigned for sale which may include guaranteeing a minimum
price or making an advance to the consignor that is secured
solely by consigned property. Such property is identified in the
catalogue by the symbol next to the lot number. This symbol
will be used both in cases where Christies holds the financial
interest on its own, and in cases where Christies has financed all
or a part of such interest through a third party. Such third parties
generally benefit financially if a guaranteed lot is sold successfully
and may incur a loss if the sale is not successful. Where Christies
has an ownership or financial interest in every lot in the
catalogue, Christies will not designate each lot with a symbol,
but will state its interest at the front of the catalogue.

PROPERTY INCORPORATING PROTECTED SPECIES


Property made of or incorporating (irrespective of
percentage) endangered and other protected species of
wildlife are marked with the symbol ~ in the catalogue. Such
material includes, among other things, ivory, tortoiseshell,
crocodile skin, rhinoceros horn, whale bone and certain
species of coral, together with Brazilian rosewood.
Prospective purchasers are advised that several countries
prohibit altogether the importation of property containing
such materials, and that other countries require a permit
(e.g., a CITES permit) from the relevant regulatory agencies
in the countries of exportation as well as importation.
Accordingly, clients should familiarise themselves with
the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding
on any property with wildlife material if they intend to
import the property into another country. Please note that
it is the clients responsibility to determine and satisfy the
requirements of any applicable laws or regulations applying
to the export or import of property containing endangered
and other protected wildlife material. The inability of a client
to export or import property containing endangered and
other protected wildlife material is not a basis for cancellation
or rescission of the sale. Please note also that lots containing
potentially regulated wildlife material are marked as a
convenience to our clients, but Christies does not accept
liability for errors or for failing to mark lots containing
protected or regulated species.
Recent changes to imports of elephant ivory and
other wildlife material into the USA
The USA has recently changed its policy on the import of
property made of or containing elephant ivory. Only Asian
Elephant ivory may be imported into the USA, and imports
must be accompanied by DNA analysis and confrmation
the object is more than 100 years old. We have not obtained
a DNA analysis on any lot prior to sale and cannot indicate
whether the elephant ivory in a particular lot is African or
Asian elephant. Buyers purchase these lots at their own risk
and will be responsible for the costs of obtaining any DNA
analysis or other report required in connection with their
proposed import of such property into the USA.
The USA is also currently requiring all imports of property
made of or containing wildlife material to be accompanied
by a scientifc confrmation of species and in some cases an
additional confrmation of age.We have not obtained such
confrmations prior to sale (unless specifcally indicated) and
buyers will be responsible for the costs of any such additional
confrmations or opinions required for their proposed import
into the USA.
A buyers inability to export or import any lot containing
elephant ivory or other wildlife material is not a basis for
cancelling the purchase.

of the buyer and the information below, which is not
exhaustive, is therefore to be used as a general guide.
If you have any further queries then please contact the
VAT department here at Christies.
Where a buyer has purchased an item and intends to
export the item outside the EU, a VAT refund can be
obtained subject to ALL of the following conditions
being satisfied:
Buyer must have registered to bid
with a NON EU address
Lots must be exported within
3 months.
Lots subject to Import VAT, shown with the Star
(*) or Omega () in the catalogue, must be
exported within 30 days of collection.
Proof of export in the appropriate
form (please see section headed VAT
consequences on shipping) must be
provided to the VAT department at Christies.
Christies cannot refund VAT paid if the above
conditions are not met.
Refunds cannot be made where lots have been purchased with
an inside EU address. Christies can only refund Import VAT
(Lots with * or symbol) if lots are exported within 30 days
of collection. Valid export documents must be returned within
the stipulated time frame. No refund will be paid out where
the total amount is less than 100. UK & EU private buyers
cannot reclaim VAT. Christies will charge 35 for each
refund processed. For detailed information please see the leaflets
available, or email info@Christies.com
Where non-EU buyers have failed to export their lots outside
of the EU within the required time, HM Revenue & Customs
will not allow a VAT refund to be made. This is a requirement
of UK legislation and Christies do not have discretion to make
exceptions to the rule. UK and EU private buyers cannot reclaim
any VAT charged.

UK/EU
Buyer

These lots have been imported from outside the


EU for sale using a Temporary Import regime.
Import VAT is payable (at 20%) on the Hammer
price. VAT is also payable (at 20%) on the buyers
Premium on a VAT inclusive basis. This VAT
is not shown separately on the invoice. Where
applicable Customs duty will be charged (per rate
specified by HMRC guidance) on the Hammer
price and VAT will be payable at 20% on duty.
When a buyer of such a lot has registered an EU
address but wishes to export the lot or complete the
import into another EU country, he must advise
Christies immediately after the auction.
The VAT treatment of the lot is determined by
the registered address of the purchaser:
Purchaser from within the European Union
(EU) VAT is accounted for by Christies under
the Auctioneers Margin Scheme. No VAT
is charged on the Hammer price; VAT is
charged at 20% on the Buyers Premium on a
VAT inclusive basis. This VAT is not shown
separately on the invoice.
Purchasers from outside the European Union
(EU) VAT is charged at 20% on both the
Hammer and Premium (subject to the usual
UK VAT rules).
No VAT charged.

VAT Consequences on Shipping


CHRISTIES AUTHORISED SHIPPER If a buyer
exports the purchased goods outside the EU and a
CHRISTIES AUTHORISED SHIPPER is used, the
buyer will not be required to pay the VAT at the time
of settlement.
Own Shipper If the buyer exports the purchased
goods outside the EU and does not use a CHRISTIES
AUTHORISED SHIPPER, VAT will be charged
on the invoice. This VAT will be refundable upon
receipt of the correct export documentation by
Christies VAT department.

Hand Carried Lots Purchased


If the buyer exports the purchased goods outside the
EU himself, VAT will be charged on the invoice. For
lots that are to be hand carried, the following must be
adhered to:
For lots that carry the Star (*) or Omega () symbol in
the catalogue, a C88 can be obtained from Christies
Shipping department. This must be stamped by UK
Customs on leaving the UK and sent to the VAT
department for a VAT refund to be issued.
For lots that carry no symbol or are daggered () in
the catalogue a Global Refund form can be obtained
from Cashiers and the VAT can be reclaimed by the
purchaser at the airport (subject to an admin fee).
The buyer must provide valid proof of identity (i.e.
passport/credit card) at time of collection and present
the same proof at the Global Refund desk at the
airport. Alternatively any commercial evidence of
export is acceptable.

Conditions of Sale
These Conditions of Sale and the information set out in the All You Need to Know
section of the catalogue set out the terms governing the legal relationship of Christies
and the seller with the buyer. You should read them carefully before bidding.
1
CHRISTIE'S AS AGENT
Except as otherwise stated Christies acts as agent for
the seller. The contract for the sale of the property is
therefore made between the seller and the buyer.
2
CATALOGUE DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION
Lots are sold as described and otherwise in the
condition they are in at the time of the sale,
on the following basis.
a

Condition

The nature of the lots sold in our auctions is such that


they will rarely be in perfect condition, and are likely,
due to their nature and age, to show signs of wear
and tear, damage, other imperfections, restoration or
repair. Any reference to condition in a catalogue entry
will not amount to a full description of condition.
Condition reports are usually available on request,
and will supplement the catalogue description. In
describing lots, our staff assess the condition in a
manner appropriate to the estimated value of the item
and the nature of the auction in which it is included.
Any statement as to the physical nature or condition
of a lot, in a catalogue, condition report or otherwise,
is given honestly and with appropriate care. However,
Christies staff are not professional restorers or trained
conservators and accordingly any such statement will
not be exhaustive. We therefore recommend that you
always view property personally, and, particularly in
the case of any items of significant value, that you
instruct your own restorer or other professional adviser
to report to you in advance of bidding.
b

Cataloguing Practice

Our cataloguing practice is explained in the All You


Need to Know section of the catalogue, which appears
after the catalogue entries.
c

Attribution etc

Any statements made by Christies about any lot,


whether orally or in writing, concerning attribution
to, for example, an artist, school, or country of origin,
or history or provenance, or any date or period, are
expressions of our opinion or belief. Our opinions and
beliefs have been formed honestly and in accordance
with the standard of care reasonably to be expected
of an auction house of Christies standing, due regard
having been had to the estimated value of the item
and the nature of the auction in which it is included.
It must be clearly understood, however, that, due to
the nature of the auction process, we are unable to
carry out exhaustive research of the kind undertaken
by professional historians and scholars, and also that, as
research develops and scholarship and expertise evolve,
opinions on these matters may change. We therefore
recommend that, particularly in the case of any item of
significant value, you seek advice on such matters from
your own professional advisers.
d

Estimates

Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as


a statement that this is the price at which the item will
sell or its value for any other purpose.
e

Fitness for Purpose

Lots sold are enormously varied in terms of age, category


and condition, and may be purchased for a variety of
purposes. Unless otherwise specifically agreed, no promise
is made that a lot is fit for any particular purpose.

AT THE SALE
a

Refusal of admission

Christies has the right, at our complete discretion, to


refuse admission to the premises or participation in any
auction and to reject any bid.
b

Registration before bidding

Prospective buyers who wish to bid in the saleroom


can register online in advance of the sale, or can come
to the saleroom on the day of the sale approximately
30 minutes before the start of the sale to register in
person. Prospective buyers must complete and sign a
registration form with his or her name and permanent
address, and provide identification before bidding. We
may require the production of bank details from which
payment will be made or other financial references.
c

Bidding as principal

When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal


liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyers
premium and all applicable taxes, plus all other applicable
charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing
with Christies before the commencement of the
sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an
identified third party acceptable to Christies, and that
Christies will only look to the principal for payment.
d

Absentee bids

We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids


delivered to us prior to the sale for the convenience of
clients who are not present at the auction in person,
by an agent or by telephone. Bids must be placed in
the currency of the place of the sale. Please refer to the
catalogue for the Absentee Bids Form. If we receive
written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and
at the auction these are the highest bids on the lot, it will
be sold to the person whose written bid was received and
accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service
undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of
the sale and provided that we have exercised reasonable
care in the handling of written bids, the volume of goods
is such that we cannot accept liability in any individual
instance for failing to execute a written bid or for
errors and omissions in connection with it arising from
circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
e

Telephone bids

If a prospective buyer makes arrangements with us prior


to the commencement of the sale we will use reasonable
efforts to contact them to enable them to participate
in the bidding by telephone but we do not accept
liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions
in connection with telephone bidding arising from
circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
f

Currency converter

At some auctions a currency converter may be


operated. Errors may occur in the operation of the
currency converter. Where these arise from circumstances
beyond our reasonable control we do not accept
liability to bidders who follow the currency converter
rather than the actual bidding in the saleroom.
g

Video or digital images

At some auctions there may be a video or digital screen.


Errors may occur in its operation and in the quality of the
image. We do not accept liability for such errors where
they arise for reasons beyond our reasonable control.
h

Reserves

Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to


a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below
which the lot will not be sold. The reserve will not
exceed the low estimate printed in the catalogue. If any
lots are not subject to a reserve, they will be identified
with the symbol next to the lot number. The auctioneer
may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by
placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may
continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount
of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by
placing bids in response to other bidders.

Auctioneers discretion

The auctioneer has the right to exercise reasonable


discretion in refusing any bid, advancing the bidding
in such a manner as he may decide, withdrawing or
dividing any lot, combining any two or more lots and,
in the case of error or dispute, and whether during
or after the sale, determining the successful bidder,
continuing the bidding, cancelling the sale or reoffering
and reselling the item in dispute. If any dispute arises
after the sale, then, in the absence of any evidence
to the contrary the sale record maintained by the
auctioneer will be conclusive.
j

Successful bid and passing of risk

Subject to the auctioneers reasonable discretion, the


highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be
the buyer and the striking of his hammer marks the
acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a
contract for sale between the seller and the buyer. Risk
and responsibility for the lot (including frames or glass
where relevant) passes to the buyer at the expiration
of seven calendar days from the date of the sale or on
collection by the buyer if earlier.
4
AFTER THE SALE
a

Buyers premium

In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees


to pay to us the buyers premium together with any
applicable value added tax. The buyers premium is
25% of the first 50,000 of the hammer price on each
lot plus 20% of the excess of the hammer price above
50,000 up to and including 1,000,000 plus 12% of
any amount in excess of 1,000,000.
b

Artists Resale Right (Droit de Suite)

If the Artists Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to


the lot the buyer also agrees to pay to us an amount
equal to the resale royalty provided for in those
Regulations. Lots affected are identified with the
symbol next to the lot number.
c

Payment and ownership

The buyer must pay the full amount due (comprising the
hammer price, buyers premium and any applicable taxes)
immediately after the sale. This applies even if the buyer
wishes to export the lot and an export licence is, or may
be, required. The buyer will not acquire title to the lot
until all amounts due to us from the buyer have been
received by us in good cleared funds even in circumstances
where we have released the lot to the buyer.
d

Collection of purchases

We shall be entitled to retain items sold until all


amounts due to us, or to Christies International
plc, or to any of its affiliates, subsidiaries or parent
companies worldwide, have been received in full in
good cleared funds or until the buyer has performed
any other outstanding obligations as we, in our sole
discretion, shall require, including, for the avoidance
of doubt, completing any anti-money laundering or
anti-terrorism financing checks we may require to our
satisfaction. In the event a buyer fails to complete any
anti-money laundering or anti-terrorism financing
checks to our satisfaction, Christies shall be entitled to
cancel the sale and to take any other actions that are
required or permitted under applicable law. Subject to
this, the buyer shall collect purchased lots within two
calendar days from the date of the sale unless otherwise
agreed between us and the buyer.

Conditions of Sale

Packing, handling and shipping

Although we shall use reasonable efforts to take care


when handling, packing and shipping a purchased
lot and in selecting third parties for these purposes,
we are not responsible for the acts or omissions of
any such third parties. Similarly, where we suggest
other handlers, packers or carriers if so requested,
our suggestions are made on the basis of our general
experience of such parties in the past and we are not
responsible to any person to whom we have made a
recommendation for the acts or omissions of the third
party concerned.
f

Export licence

Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the fact


that the buyer wishes to apply for an export licence
does not affect his or her obligation to make payment
immediately after the sale nor our right to charge
interest or storage charges on late payment. If the buyer
requests us to apply for an export licence on his or
her behalf, we shall be entitled to make a charge for
this service. We shall not be obliged to rescind a sale
nor to refund any interest or other expenses incurred
by the buyer where payment is made by the buyer in
circumstances where an export licence is required.
g

Remedies for non payment

If the buyer fails to make payment in full in good cleared


funds within 7 days after the sale, we shall have the right
to exercise a number of legal rights and remedies. These
include, but are not limited to, the following:
i to charge interest at an annual rate equal to 5%
above the base rate of Lloyds TSB Bank Plc;
ii to hold the defaulting buyer liable for the total
amount due and to commence legal proceedings
for its recovery together with interest, legal fees
and costs to the fullest extent permitted under
applicable law;
iii to cancel the sale;
iv to resell the property publicly or privately on such
terms as we shall think fit;
v to pay the seller an amount up to the net proceeds
payable in respect of the amount bid by the
defaulting buyer;
vi to set off against any amounts which we, or
Christies International plc, or any of its affiliates,
subsidiaries or parent companies worldwide, may
owe the buyer in any other transactions, the
outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the buyer;
vii where several amounts are owed by the buyer to
us, or to Christies International plc, or to any
of its affiliates, subsidiaries or parent companies
worldwide, in respect of different transactions, to
apply any amount paid to discharge any amount
owed in respect of any particular transaction,
whether or not the buyer so directs;
viii to reject at any future auction any bids made by or
on behalf of the buyer or to obtain a deposit from
the buyer before accepting any bids;
ix to exercise all the rights and remedies of a
person holding security over any property in our
possession owned by the buyer, whether by way
of pledge, security interest or in any other way, to
the fullest extent permitted by the law of the place
where such property is located. The buyer will be
deemed to have granted such security to us and we
may retain such property as collateral security for
such buyers obligations to us;
x to take such other action as we deem necessary
or appropriate.

If we resell the property under paragraph (iv) above,


the defaulting buyer shall be liable for payment of any
deficiency between the total amount originally due
to us and the price obtained upon resale as well as for
all reasonable costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and
commissions and premiums of whatever kind associated
with both sales or otherwise arising from the default.
If we pay any amount to the seller under paragraph (v)
above, the buyer acknowledges that Christies shall have
all of the rights of the seller, however arising, to pursue
the buyer for such amount.
Failure to collect purchases
Where purchases are not collected within two calendar
days from the date of the sale, whether or not payment
has been made, we shall be permitted to remove the
property to a third party warehouse at the buyers
expense, and only release the items after payment in full
has been made of removal, storage, handling, and any
other costs reasonably incurred, together with payment
of all other amounts due to us.
h

Selling Property at Christies


In addition to expenses such as transport, all consignors
pay a commission according to a fixed scale of charges
based upon the value of the property sold by the
consignor at Christies in a calendar year. Commissions
are charged on a sale by sale basis.
i

5
LIMITED WARRANTY
In addition to Christies liability to buyers set out in
clause 2 of these Conditions, but subject to the terms
and conditions of this paragraph, Christies warrants
for a period of five years from the date of the sale that
any property described in headings printed in UPPER
CASE TYPE (i.e. headings having all capital-letter
type) in this catalogue (as such description may be
amended by any saleroom notice or announcement)
which is stated without qualification to be the work
of a named author or authorship, is authentic and
not a forgery. The term author or authorship
refers to the creator of the property or to the period,
culture, source or origin, as the case may be, with
which the creation of such property is identified in
the UPPER CASE description of the property in
this catalogue. Only UPPER CASE TYPE headings
of lots in this catalogue indicate what is being
warranted by Christies. Christies warranty does
not apply to supplemental material which appears
below the UPPER CASE TYPE headings of each
lot and Christies is not responsible for any errors or
omissions in such material. The terms used in the
headings are further explained in the All You Need
to Know section of the catalogue. The warranty does
not apply to any heading which is stated to represent
a qualified opinion.
The warranty is subject to the following:
i It does not apply where (a) the catalogue description
or saleroom notice corresponded to the generally
accepted opinion of scholars or experts at the
date of the sale or fairly indicated that there was a
conflict of opinions; or (b) correct identification of
a lot can be demonstrated only by means of either
a scientific process not generally accepted for use
until after publication of the catalogue or a process
which at the date of publication of the catalogue
was unreasonably expensive or impractical or likely
to have caused damage to the property.

ii

The benefits of the warranty are not assignable and


shall apply only to the original buyer of the lot as
shown on the invoice originally issued by Christies
when the lot was sold at auction.
iii The original buyer must have remained the owner
of the lot without disposing of any interest in it to
any third party.
iv The buyers sole and exclusive remedy against
Christies and the seller, in place of any other
remedy which might be available, is the cancellation
of the sale and the refund of the original purchase
price paid for the lot. Neither Christies nor the
seller will be liable for any special, incidental or
consequential damages including, without limitation,
loss of profits nor for interest.
v The buyer must give written notice of claim to us
within five years from the date of the auction. It is
Christies general policy, and Christies shall have
the right, to require the buyer to obtain the written
opinions of two recognised experts in the field,
mutually acceptable to Christies and the buyer,
before Christies decides whether or not to cancel
the sale under the warranty.
vi The buyer must return the lot to the Christies
saleroom at which it was purchased in the same
condition as at the time of the sale.
6
COPYRIGHT
The copyright in all images, illustrations and written
material produced by or for Christies relating to a
lot including the contents of this catalogue, is and
shall remain at all times the property of Christies and
shall not be used by the buyer, nor by anyone else,
without our prior written consent. Christies and the
seller make no representation or warranty that the
buyer of a property will acquire any copyright or other
reproduction rights in it.
7
SEVERABILITY
If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by
any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforcable, that
part shall be discounted and the rest of the conditions
shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent
permitted by law.
8
LAW AND JURISDICTION
The rights and obligations of the parties with respect
to these Conditions of Sale, the conduct of the auction
and any matters connected with any of the foregoing
shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of
England. By bidding at auction, whether present in
person or by agent, by written bid, telephone or other
means, the buyer shall be deemed to have submitted,
for the benefit of Christies, to the exclusive jurisdiction
of the courts of the United Kingdom.

of the export licensing regulations and will submit
any necessary export licence applications on request.
However, Christies cannot ensure that a licence will be

in the country of importation.

Written Bids

Is it like a Sealed Bid?


A little. The key difference is that a sealed bid is
a fixed sum which, if you are successful, you will
end up paying regardless, whilst a written bid is
your maximum level and you may end up paying
less than that.
What will I pay?
If you are successful, the purchase price
payable will be the aggregate of the final bid
and a buyers premium of 25% on each lot
up to and including 50,000 plus 20% of the
excess above 50,000 up to and including
1,000,000 plus 12% of any sum in excess
of 1,000,000, together with any additional
applicable charges, such as VAT.
Can I change my mind?
Yes of course, but only before the auction
has begun. Contact the Bids Office as soon as
you can on +44 (0)20 7752 3225.
If Im successful, what happens next?
We will send you an invoice and payment
information sheet to the address provided,
you can then make payment and collect your
lots. Remember, lots can be subject to
storage charges after the sale, always check
the catalogue for precise details on when
charges begin.
Can I have my items delivered?
Yes. Our Art Transport team can arrange all
your transport needs, from local deliveries to
international freight. Their telephone number
is +44 (0)20 7389 2712

All written bids are subject to the
Conditions of Sale and Notices printed
in the catalogue.
2
Although to be certain of buying a
lot you should attend the auction,
Christies will use reasonable efforts
to carry out written bids delivered to
us prior to the sale. A maximum price
should be given against each lot and
the auctioneer will bid on your behalf.
Written bids should be consistent with
the normal increment in bidding at the
relevant level.
3
If your bid is successful, the purchase
price payable will be the aggregate of
the final bid and a buyers premium of
25% on each lot up to and including
50,000 plus 20% of the excess
above 50,000 up to and including
1,000,000 plus 12% of any sum in
excess of 1,000,000, together with
any additional applicable charges, such
as VAT.
4
Please ensure you have left bids on
the correct lots and that your written
bids are received by no later than the
day before the sale begins. In certain
circumstances it may not be possible to
execute bids received after the start of
the sale.
5
If we receive written bids on a
particular lot for identical amounts,
and at the auction these are the
highest bids for the lot, it will be sold
to the person whose written bid was
received and accepted first. Written
bids submitted on no reserve lots
will, in the absence of a higher bid, be
executed at approximately 50% of the
low pre-sale estimate or at the amount
of the bid if it is less than 50% of the
low pre-sale estimate.
6
Please note that we do not accept
responsibility for notifying you of the
result of your bid and request that you
contact us after the sale for your result.

commitments at the time of the sale
and provided that we have exercised
reasonable care in the handling of

to execute a written bid or for errors
and omissions in connection with it
arising from circumstances beyond our
reasonable control.
