There are no warranties of any kind, including but not limited to representations of age, origin, condition, restoration, dimensions, authenticity, provenance, or authorship. Any condition reports, artist, authorship that are part of an item's description are the opinion only of New England Auctions and do not represent facts or guarantees that may substitute for research and inspection of items by the bidder. New England Auctions makes every effort to describe items being auctioned accurately, however written and oral descriptions should in no way be considered a guarantee or accurate. Items auctioned are not new. There are inherent imperfections in old and antique items. Any estimates listed with auction items are solely based upon an approximation of the range within which an item may sell for, as determined by New England Auctions, and in no way represents the value or selling price of those items. All items are available for your examination prior to bidding. Your bidding will signify that you have examined the items, or that you have chosen not to examine them. We encourage in-person inspection as well as questions or requests for additional information or images. New England Auctions will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions pertaining to items listed in the catalog. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to inspect an item prior to bidding to determine size, condition, authenticity and whether there has been restoration or repair. All items are sold as-is, where-is. We do not accept returns and do not give refunds. All sales are final.

Any dispute of the authenticity, age, condition, or authorship of an item, after the sale, must be made within 14 days of the auction sale date. Written and signed testimony in dispute must be presented within 14 days of the sale date from at least one recognized expert of the artist or object in question. Judgment by an expert based on images is not acceptable. Negative judgement must be absolute, not "possibly", before there is any rescinding of the sale of a disputed item. Disputed item must be returned in the original condition that it was sold in, within 21 days of the sale date. Any damage or alteration, shipping damage, cleaning, however minor, will disqualify an item for a refund. The agreement to rescind the sale is at the sole discretion of New England Auctions. If agreement is made, New England Auctions will refund the buyer an amount of the purchase price plus sales tax, if applicable. New England Auctions will not reimburse for any shipping costs associated with the return of the said item. By bidding with New England Auctions the bidder agrees to these terms regarding returns.
