Conditions of Sale
The following Conditions of Sale and Terms of Guarantee constitute the entire agreement with the purchaser relative to the property listed by Hiro Fine Art LLC, DBA Revere Auctions. Hereinafter, Hiro Fine Art LLC. DBA Revere Auctions is referred to Revere Auctions.

Revere Auctions acts as owner or as an agent for various owners and consignors. Revere Auctions reserves the right to change the terms of sale by oral announcement. Any such change shall become part of the Condition of Sale. By bidding at auction (whether present in person, by agent, by telephone, by absentee bid instruction, or though a live internet bidding platform) you agree to be bound by these terms.

Before the Sale
Prospective buyers are strongly advised to personally examine any property in
which they are interested before the auction takes place. Condition reports are
usually available on request, on lots with a low estimate of $500 and above.

All lots are sold “AS IS” and without recourse and neither Revere Auctions, nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots. Revere Auctions makes a limited warranty only to the original buyer of record concerning the authenticity of each lot for a period of 14 days after bidder’s receipt of the purchased lot. If a buyer is not satisfied that the lot purchased is genuine, the buyer may, at his or her own expense, obtain the opinion of two mutually agreed upon recognized experts in the field of the disputed lot. If these experts determine that the item is not genuine, the buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the rescission of the sale and refund of the amount paid for the item. It is specifically understood and agreed that the rescission of the sale and refund is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available as a matter of law or in equity, and such remedy is conditioned upon the buyer returning the property in the same condition as at the time of sale. Revere Auctions shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages. All sales are final, with no returns or refunds except as provided in this limited warranty. The limited warrantee does not extend to the lots identified as attributions, school, circle, manner, or after.

Some of the lots in this sale are offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold. A reserve shall not be greater than the low estimate of the lot. A representative of Revere Auctions will execute such reserves by bidding on behalf of the consignor.

Revere Auctions in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to withdraw any property, at any time, before the fall of the hammer.

A buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price. The buyer’s premium is 25% of the hammer price. An additional fee will be charged on any purchase made using live online bidding. Those bidding live online or leaving absentee bids on, or any related site will pay an additional fee of 3% on the total hammer price of successful purchases.

The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid, to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion and in the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re- offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after sale, the Revere Auction sale record shall be conclusive in all respects. 7 If the auctioneer determines that any opening or later bid or any advance bid is not commensurate with the value of the Property offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the Property from sale.

Upon the fall of the hammer, title to any offered lot or article will immediately pass to the highest bidder as determined in the exclusive discretion of the auctioneer, subject to compliance by the buyer with these Conditions of Sale.
