Condition
While we make our best effort to note any issues on items either in writing or by photograph, absence of a formal condition report does not imply that a piece is perfect, free from defects, or the effects of aging. Please review the photos carefully and consider them part of the description of a lot prior to bidding. Any condition statement is a courtesy to our buyers and should be considered our opinion and not a statement of fact or free from human error. Requests for additional information can be made by email or phone, and will be responded to on a first come first served basis.
