Mischakoff, the former leader of the NBA
Concert Symphony Orchestra. Dr Daoust served
his country in two wars and subsequently made
a name for himself in the medical world. He and
his wife travelled the globe acquiring fine works
of art, but nothing gave him more pleasure than
playing chamber music on his Guarneri, and
being accompanied by his wife, a fine pianist.

This fine violin belonged to the late Dr Patrick
Daoust. As a child he taught himself to play
the violin, later receiving lessons from Mischa
Mischakoff, the former leader of the NBA
Concert Symphony Orchestra. Dr Daoust served
his country in two wars and subsequently made
a name for himself in the medical world. He and
his wife travelled the globe acquiring fine works
of art, but nothing gave him more pleasure than
playing chamber music on his Guarneri, and
being accompanied by his wife, a fine pianist.

Refer to department
John Dilworth writes:
This violin from 1757 is a typical example of his Milan period. In his travels from Piacenza to Milan, then later in
Cremona, Parma and Turin, his work changed quite drastically, seeming to reflect both the preferences of local
musicians, and his own refinements in design and style. Nevertheless, his Milan work is probably the most satisfying
to modern eyes and ears. It is characterised by the particularly rich red varnish, good proportions and subtle low
arch. The back is typical in the use of broad, but quite lightly figured maple, in this case jointed with the flame
running continuously across the joint, rising from left to right, the arching beautifully modelled with a low rise in the
centre of the plate. The front is flatter in the arch and is made from quite broad grained spruce. The crowning touch
is the exuberant carving of the scroll, the eyes spun widely from the volute, the workmanship fluid and again,
highly original.
Adolph Brodsky
In 1881 Adolph Brodsky (1851-1929) bravely
undertook the first performance of Tchaikovsky’s
formidable violin Concerto in Vienna. Until then
the work had been considered unplayable. Leopold
Auer, one of the most famous soloists of the day,
asked Tchaikovsky to make certain changes to the
concerto, presumably to make it easier to play Tchaikovsky refused. The premiere, however, was
a triumph and Tchaikovsky dedicated the work to
Brodsky. Brodsky subsequently became a great
friend of the composer and introduced him to Grieg
and Brahms, in what must have been a memorable
Christmas dinner at the Brodsky home in Leipzig.
Adolph Brodsky sold this Guadagnini in 1897, just sixteen years after his historic performance in Vienna. Mr Claxton,
who purchased the violin for his daughter Leonora, paid Brodsky the (then) princely sum of £250. In 1947 Leonora
left the violin to the present owner.
Brodsky later became concertmaster of the New York Symphony Orchestra, settling in the USA for three years before
returning to Europe in 1894. Following a short stay in Berlin, Sir Charles Hallé invited him to Manchester to teach
at the Royal Manchester College of Music where he became Principal and taught until his death in 1929. It was in
Manchester that Brodsky came to meet to Elgar, who dedicated his String Quartet in E minor, Op. 83 to Adolph
Brodsky’s string quartet, The Brodsky Quartet.

Conditions of Business
The conditions set out below are the terms on which we contract, as auctioneers, with sellers and, as agent acting on behalf of sellers, with buyers. Buyers and sellers
should read the conditions carefully. Buyers’ attention is drawn in particular to clause 16 which limits our liability. For ease of reference, the conditions are divided into
sections: Section A gives a background to some of the terms that are used in the Conditions generally; Section B is of particular relevance to sellers; Section C to buyers;
and Section D to both sellers and buyers.
A. Background to Terms used in
f ) all examination costs incurred by external experts we believe appropriate, if
agreed in advance with the Seller
these Conditions
g)photography charges of £35 per lot advertised online, and where previously
agreed charges for the catalogue photography.
1. In the conditions set out below, some terms are used regularly that need
explanation.
They are as follows:
• “the Buyer” means the person with the highest bid accepted by the
auctioneer;
• “the Lot” means any item deposited with us for sale at auction and, in
particular, the item or items described against any lot number in any
catalogue;
• “the Hammer Price” means the amount of the highest bid accepted by the
auctioneer in relation to a Lot;
• “the Buyer’s premium” means the charge payable by the Buyer as a percentage
of the Hammer Price, at the rates set out in clause 15(a) in Section C;
• “the Reserve” means the amount below which we agree with the Seller that
the Lot cannot be sold;
• “Forgery” means a Lot constituting an imitation originally conceived and
executed as a whole with a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship,
origin, age, period, culture or source where the correct description as to such
matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue and which at the
date of the auction had a value materially less than it would have had if it
had been in accordance with the description in the catalogue. Accordingly,
no Lot shall be capable of being a Forgery by reason of any damage and/or
restoration work of any kind.
h)all Storage costs of the lot after the sale;
i) all applicable VAT.
Brompton’s will on request provide advance estimates of such expenditure and
the Seller is directed to www.bromptons.co where applicable rates for the more
routine of these expenses are posted from time to time. The Seller is aware that
Brompton’s will not have control of the level of such third party charging and
the Seller is advised, if concerned, to make his/its own direct advance enquiries
of, for example relevant insurance, customs and vat authorities.
5a. Where the Lot is included under Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s Policy
a)Unless we agree otherwise, the Lot will be automatically included as
consigned or entrusted goods under Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s
Fine Art Policy for the amount that we from time to time consider to be its
appropriate value. This Value is not an undertaking by us that the Lot will be
sold for this amount.
b)We shall charge the Seller a fee for the inclusion of the Lot under our policy
at the rate of 1.5% of the Hammer Price. If we arrange transport, we may
charge the Seller an additional fee based on the value of the Lot and the
particular circumstances of the requirements for the transport to maintain
the benefit of the inclusion of the Lot under Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s
policy during such transport. Although we shall suggest carriers if specifically
requested, we cannot accept any liability in this respect.
• “The Insured Value” means the amount that Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited
in its absolute discretion from time to time shall consider to be the value for
which a Lot should be covered by insurance (whether or not insurance is
arranged by us).
c)The Lot will retain the benefit of inclusion under Brompton’s Auctioneers
Limited’s policy until the expiry of seven days after the sale. If the Lot has not
been sold, it will be at the Seller’s risk after that time.
B. The Seller
5b. Owner’s Insurance
If the Seller specifically instructs us not to insure the Lot, it will remain at the
Seller’s risk at all times until the Buyer has made payment in full. The Seller will
indemnify us and our employees and agents, and the Buyer (where applicable)
against any claim made against us or them in respect of the Lot, however that
claim may arise. The Seller will also reimburse us and them on demand for any
expenses we or they may incur as a result of such a claim, even if we or they are
found to have been negligent and even where such reimbursement is required
of a payment made without any legal liability being proved. The Seller must
notify the Seller’s insurers of the terms of this clause.
2. Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s Role as Agent.
Our sales at public auction are undertaken as agent, on behalf of the Seller. The
contract for the sale of the Lot will be between the Seller and the Buyer.
3. Commission
We shall charge the Seller commission at a rate agreed between the Seller and
Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited. VAT at the appropriate rate will be charged on
the commission. We shall also collect from the Buyer a premium in addition to
the Hammer Price, VAT at the appropriate rate is also charged on this premium.
4. Expenses
Brompton’s will charge the Seller for all its out of pocket expenditure over and
above its agreed fee, in particular:
a)all costs of Packing and shipping the Lot to us for sale;
b)all applicable transit insurance costs;
c)all costs relating to packing and shipping the lot if it is returned to the Seller;
d)all applicable customs duties;
e)all restoration of the Lot agreed in advance with the Seller
d)We are unable to accept responsibility for damage caused by woodworm,
changes in atmospheric conditions or acts of terrorism.
6. The Seller’s Undertakings regarding the Lot
This clause sets out the basis on which we shall handle the Lot and which will
govern the Seller’s relationship with the Buyer. If that basis proves incorrect in
any way, either we or the Buyer may take legal action against the Seller.
We shall handle the Lot, and the Buyer will purchase, on the basis of the Seller’s
undertakings that:
a)the Seller is the sole owner of the Lot with an unrestricted right to transfer title to
the Buyer free from all third party rights or claims (including copyright claims);
b)the Seller has complied with all requirements, legal or otherwise relating to
any export or import of the Lot and has notified us in writing of any failure
91
30th March 2015
c)by third parties to comply with such requirements in the past; and
d)the Seller has notified us in writing of any material alterations to the Lot of
which the Seller is aware and of any concerns expressed by third parties in
relation to the ownership, condition or attribution of the Lot. If any of (a), (b)
and (c) above is incorrect, the Seller will indemnify us and/or the Buyer in full
on demand against all claims, costs or expenses incurred by us or the Buyer
as a result, whether arising in relation to the Lot or the proceeds of sale.
7. Sale Arrangements
a)We shall have complete discretion as to the way the Lot is described and
illustrated in the catalogue or any condition report; the place and manner
of sale; the decision as to which persons should be admitted to the auction,
and as to which bids should be accepted; whether expert advice should be
sought, and the combination or division of goods for sale.
b)Any estimate given, orally or in writing, is a matter of opinion only and is not
an assurance in relation to the price the Lot will eventually fetch.
c)The Seller may not withdraw the Lot from sale without our consent. However,
we reserve the right to withdraw the Lot from sale at any time if (i) we have
any doubt as to its attribution or authenticity or as to the accuracy of the
statements made in clause 6 (a), (b) or (c) above or (ii) there is any breach
of these Conditions of Business or (iii) we believe it would be improper to
include the Lot in the sale.
d)If either we or the Seller withdraw the Lot, we shall charge the Seller a fee
equal to 20% of the Reserve or, if no Reserve has been agreed at that time,
20% of the Insured Value, together with any applicable VAT and insurance and
other expenses.
8. Conduct of Sale
a)The Lot will be sold subject to the Reserve, which cannot be above the
low estimate printed in the catalogue unless the Reserve is agreed to in
a currency other than pounds sterling and the exchange rates fluctuate
between the time the Reserve is agreed and the day of the sale. In this
case, unless we agree otherwise, the Reserve shall be an amount equal to
the pound sterling equivalent based on the closing exchange rate on the
business day immediately preceding the sale. We shall in no circumstances be
liable if bids are not received at the level of the Reserve. We shall however be
entitled to sell the Lot below the Reserve. If we do so, we shall be obliged to
account to the Seller as if the Hammer Price was equal to the Reserve.
b)The Seller may not bid for the Lot nor employ any person to do so on the
Seller’s behalf, although we shall have the right to bid on the Seller’s behalf
up to the amount of the Reserve.
9. After the Sale
a)Accounting
After the sale, we shall require payment in full from the Buyer, including
payment of the Buyer’s premium within seven days. Provided this has
occurred, we shall remit to the Seller an amount equal to the Hammer Price
less all charges due from the Seller, 35 days after the date of the sale, unless
we have received notice that the Lot is a Forgery (as defined in Section A of
these Conditions of Business). In the event of late payment by the Buyer we
shall make such remittance to the Seller within seven days of that payment by
the Buyer. If for any reason we make payment to the Seller of the amount due
before payment by the Buyer, we shall acquire complete ownership of and
title in the Lot, save only that in the event that we are obliged to accept the
Lot back from the Buyer on the basis that it is a Forgery, the Seller will refund
to us the proceeds of sale paid to the Seller.
Payment will be made in sterling unless the Seller instructs otherwise in
writing. If the Seller requires payment other than in sterling, we shall charge
the Seller for any currency costs incurred. Sale proceeds will be calculated at
the rate of exchange quoted to us by Coutts & Co. prevailing on the day of the
pay-out 35 days after the date of the auction. Our certificate as to such rate
will be conclusive.
92
b)Non-Payment by the Buyer
If the Buyer fails to pay the full amount due within 35 days after the date
of sale, we shall be entitled to agree special terms on the Seller’s behalf for
payment, storage and insurance, and to take any steps we consider necessary
to collect the amount due from the Buyer. However, we shall not be obliged
either to remit the price due to the Seller ourselves, nor to take any legal
proceedings on the Seller’s behalf. We shall discuss with the Seller the
appropriate course of action to be taken to recover the purchase price from
the Buyer.
c)Forgeries
If within three months of the date of the auction the Buyer satisfies us that
the Lot is a Forgery (as defined in Clause 1 of these Conditions of Business),
then (i) if the Buyer at that time has not yet paid the full amount due, we
shall have the right to cancel the sale and/or (ii) if we have at that time paid
the Seller the whole or part of the full amount due to the Seller, then the
Seller must refund to us, on demand, the total amount paid. In the latter case
we shall exercise a lien over any property of the Seller under our control as
security for the amount due
d)Unsold Lot
If any Lot is unsold, or is not included in a sale, or is withdrawn from sale
for any reason, it must be collected from us within 35 days after we send
the Seller a notice requiring the Seller to collect it. If any such Lot remains
uncollected for a period exceeding 35 days, a storage charge of £1 per item
per day will apply and an additional charge will be made for insurance. The
Seller will not be entitled to collect the Lot until all outstanding charges are
met. If any such Lot is not collected within 90 days after the date of the sale
or the date of the notice referred to above (whichever occurs first), it may
be disposed of by us as we see fit, which may involve its removal to a third
party warehouse at the Seller’s expense and its sale by public auction on such
terms as we consider appropriate, including those relating to estimates and
reserves. We shall then account to the Seller for the proceeds of sale, having
deducted all amounts due. If any Lot is bought in or otherwise unsold by
auction, we are authorised as the exclusive agent for the Seller for a period
of two months following the auction to sell such Lot privately for a price that
will result in a payment to the Seller of not less than the net amount – i.e.
after deduction of all charges due from the Seller – to which the Seller would
have been entitled had the Lot been sold at a price equal to the Reserve, or
for such lesser amount as we and the Seller shall agree. In such event the
Seller’s obligations to us with respect to such a Lot are the same as if it had
been sold at auction.
10. Photographs and Illustrations
We shall have the right (on a non-exclusive basis) to photograph, video or
otherwise produce an image of the Lot. All rights in such an image will belong
to us, and we shall have the right to use it in whatever way we see fit.
11. Other Matters
VAT The Seller will give all relevant information about his VAT status and that of
the Lot to ensure that the correct information is printed in the catalogues. Once
printed, the information cannot be changed. If we incur any unforeseen cost or
expense as a result of the information being incorrect, the Seller will reimburse
to us on demand the full amount incurred.
C. Buyers
12. Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited as agent
As auctioneers, we act as agent for the Seller. Unless otherwise agreed sales of
goods at our auctions result in contracts made between the Seller, through our
agency, with the Buyer.
13. Before the Sale
a)Examination of goods
Prospective buyers are strongly advised to examine personally any goods in
which they are interested, before the auction takes place. Condition reports
are usually available on request. We provide no guarantee to the Buyer other
than in relation to Forgeries, as explained in clause 1 of these Conditions of
Business.
b)Catalogue descriptions
Statements by us in the catalogue or condition report, or made orally or in
writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size, medium,
attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimated selling price
of any Lot are merely statements of opinion, and are not to be relied on as
statements of definitive fact. Catalogue illustrations are for guidance only,
and should not be relied on either to determine the tone or colour of any
item or to reveal imperfections. Estimates of the selling price should not be
relied on as a statement that this price is either the price at which the Lot
will sell or its value for any other purpose. Many items are of an age or nature
which precludes their being in perfect condition and some descriptions in
the catalogue or given by way of condition report make reference to damage
and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance only and the
absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects
or restoration nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of
any others.
c)Buyers Responsibility
Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition
of the goods and the matters referred to in the catalogue description. All
lots are offered for sale in the condition they are in at the time of the auction
(whether or not Bidders are in attendance at the auction).
d)Importation into a buyer’s destination country
The purchaser’s inability to import any item into his destination country as
a result of Government economic sanctions or other restrictions shall not
justify cancellation or rescission of the sale or any delay in payment. Please
satisfy yourself before bidding as to whether a lot is subject to such import
restrictions, or any other restrictions on importation or exportation
14. At the Sale
a)Refusal of admission
Our sales take place on our own premises or premises over which we have
control for the sale, and we have the right, exercisable at our complete
discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or attendance at an auction.
b)Registration before bidding
Every prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and
provide identification before making a bid at auction. Prospective buyers
should be aware that we usually require buyers to undergo a credit check.
c)Bidding as Principal
When making a bid, prospective buyers will be accepting personal liability,
unless it has been agreed in writing, at the time of registration, that a bidder
is acting as agent on behalf of a third party acceptable to us.
d)Absentee Bids
If a prospective buyer gives us instructions to bid on his behalf, by using
the form provided, we shall use reasonable efforts to do so, provided these
instructions are received not later than 24 hours before the sale. If we receive
absentee bids on a particular Lot for identical amounts, and at auction
these bids are the highest bids for the Lot, it will be sold to the person
whose bid was received first. Absentee bids are undertaken subject to other
commitments at the time of the sale, and the conduct of the sale may be
such that we are unable to bid as requested. Since this is undertaken as a free
service to prospective buyers on the terms stated, we cannot accept liability
for failure to make a absentee bid. Prospective buyers should therefore always
attend personally if they wish to be certain of bidding.
e)Telephone Bids
If prospective buyers make arrangements with us not less than 24 hours
before the sale, we shall use reasonable efforts to contact the bidders to
enable them to participate in bidding by telephone, but in no circumstances
will we be liable to either the Seller or any prospective buyer as a result of
failure to do so.
f ) Currency Converter
At some auctions, a currency converter will be operated, based on the rates
of exchange quoted to us by Coutts & Co. at opening on the date of the
auction. Bidding will however take place in sterling. The currency converter
is not always reliable, and errors may occur beyond our control either in
the accuracy of the Lot number displayed on the converter, or the foreign
currency equivalent of sterling bids. We shall not be liable to the Buyer for any
loss suffered as a result of the Buyer following the currency converter rather
than the sterling bidding.
g)Video images
At some auctions there will be a video screen. Mistakes may occur in
its operation, and we cannot be liable to the Buyer regarding either the
correspondence of the image to the Lot being sold or the quality of the
image as a reproduction of the original.
h)The auctioneer’s discretion
The auctioneer has the right at his absolute discretion to refuse any bid
to advance the bidding in such manner as he may decide to withdraw or
divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots, to withdraw any lot, and,
in the case of error or dispute, to put an item up for bidding again. All
aforementioned action can also be taken after the fall of the hammer.
i) Bidding Increments
The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding at levels and in
increments he considers appropriate and is entitled to place a bid or series of
bids on behalf of the Seller up to the Reserve on the lot, without indicating he
is doing so and whether or not other bids are placed.
j) Successful bid
Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, 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.
k)Online Bidding
Brompton’s Auctioneers offer an online bidding service via www.invaluable.
com/bromptons for bidders who cannot attend the sale. In completing the
online bidder registration and providing your credit card details and unless
alternative arrangements are agreed with Brompton’s Auctioneers you:
i. authorise Brompton’s Auctioneers, if they so wish, to charge the credit
card given in part or full payment, including all fees, for items successfully
purchased in the auction via www.invaluable.com, and
ii. confirm that you are authorised to provide these credit card details to
Brompton’s Auctioneers through www.invaluable.com . Please note that
any lots purchased via Invaluable live auction service will be subject to
an additional 3% commission charge + VAT at the rate imposed on the
hammer price.
15. After the Sale
a)Buyer’s Premium
In addition to the Hammer Price, the Buyer must pay us the Buyer’s premium
at a rate of 20% of the Hammer Price.
b)Value Added Tax
Value Added Tax is always payable on the premium. It may also be payable on
the Hammer Price, if the Lot has been marked with a sign to that effect in the
catalogue. It may be refunded on proof of export from the European Union.
c)Payment
The Buyer must provide us with his or her name and permanent address
and, if so requested, details of the bank from which payment will be made
and then pay the full amount due (comprising the Hammer Price, the Buyer’s
premium and any applicable value added tax) within seven days after the
date of 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 have been paid to us, even in circumstances
where we have released the Lot to the Buyer. Payment may be made in
the following ways: by credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, or Amex are
accepted); wire transfer in GBP, EUR, or USD; or by GBP in cash up to £5,000.
93
30th March 2015
Payments exceeding £5,000 can normally only be made by the card holder in
person whilst on our premises. Full and exact payment to be made in British
pounds. Brompton’s are not responsible for buyers individual bank charges,
and reserve the right to collect any outstanding funds.
d)Collection of Purchases
Unless we specifically agree to the contrary, we shall retain items sold until
all amounts due to us, or to any other associated company of Brompton’s
Auctioneers Limited, have been paid in full. Items retained will be covered by
our insurance from the date of sale for a period of seven days or, if by then
the goods have been collected, to the time of collection. After seven days or
from the time of collection, whichever is the earlier, the Lot will be entirely at
the Buyer’s risk.
e)Notification
Invoices are sent out by email after the sale day, but we do not accept
responsibility for notifying you of your bid. Bidders are requested to contact
us as soon as possible after the sale to obtain details of the outcome of their
bids to avoid incurring charges for late payment. Successful bidders will pay
the price of the final bid plus premium plus any applicable VAT.
f ) Handling Purchases
We shall use all reasonable efforts to take care when handling a purchased
Lot but remind the Buyer that after seven days from the sale date or from the
time of collection the Lot is entirely at the Buyer’s risk.
g)Recommended packers and shippers
All packing and handling is at the Buyer’s risk. Brompton’s Auctioneers Ltd
will not be liable for any acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers.
We recommend that you contact a professional shipping company who will
advise on collection and delivery and provide a quotation. If you require
a quotation after the auction then you will need to provide the shipping
company with the information from your Brompton’s invoice. All shipments
should be unpacked and checked on delivery and any discrepancies notified
immediately to the shipper in question.
h)Remedies for non-payment or failure to collect purchases
If the Buyer fails to make payment within seven days, we shall be entitled to
exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies:
• to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 4% above Coutts & Co. base rate per
month on the full amount due to the extent it remains unpaid for more than
seven days after the date of the auction;
• to set off against any amounts which we or any other associated company of
Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited may owe the Buyer in any other transaction
the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the Buyer;
• to exercise a lien on any of the Buyer’s property which may be in our
possession for any purpose and, following 14 days’ notice to the Buyer of the
amount outstanding and remaining unpaid, arrange the sale of such property
and apply the proceeds in discharge of the amount outstanding to us;
• where several amounts are owed by the Buyer to us or any other associated
company of Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited 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;
• to reject at any future auction any bids made by the Buyer or on his behalf or
obtain a deposit from the Buyer before accepting any bids. If the Buyer fails to
make payment within thirty-five days, we shall in addition be entitled:
• to issue proceedings on behalf of the Seller against the Buyer to recover
the full amount due, together with the costs of such proceedings on a full
indemnity basis and with interest, charged at 4% per annum above Coutts &
Co. Base Rate;
• to cancel the sale of the Lot or any other item sold to the Buyer at the same or
any other auction;
• to arrange a resale of the Lot, publicly or privately, and, if this results in a lower
price being obtained, claim the balance from the Buyer together with any
costs incurred in connection with the Buyer’s failure to make payment.
94
i) Failure to collect
Where purchases are not collected within seven days after the sale, whether
or not payment has been made, we shall arrange storage at the Buyer’s
expense, and only release the items purchased after payment has been made
in full of storage, removal, insurance and any other costs incurred, together
with payment of all other amounts due to us.
j) Export and Permits
It is the Buyer’s sole responsibility to identify, obtain, and purchase any
necessary export, import, endangered species or other permit for the lot.
If the Buyer requests us to apply for a licence listed below on his behalf, we
shall be entitled to recover from him our disbursements and out of pocket
expenses in relation to such application, together with any relevant VAT. We
will not be obliged to refund any interest or other expenses incurred by the
Buyer where payment is made by the Buyer despite the fact that an export
licence is required. Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the fact that
the Buyer wishes to apply for an export licence does not affect his obligation
to make payment within seven days nor our right to charge interest on late
payment.
16. Extent of Our Liability
a)We have an obligation to refund the Buyer in the circumstances set out in
clause 17. However, neither the Seller nor we, nor any of our employees
or agents, are responsible for the correctness of any statement as to the
authorship, origin, date, age, attribution, genuineness or provenance of
any Lot nor for any other errors of description or for any faults or defects
in any Lot. Neither the Seller, ourselves, our employees or agents, give any
guarantee in respect of any Lot. Any warranty of any kind whatsoever is
excluded by this clause.
b)Without prejudice to Condition 16(a), any claim against Brompton’s
Auctioneers Ltd or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the Purchase Price with
regard to that lot. Neither Brompton’s Auctioneers Ltd nor the Seller shall
under any circumstances be liable for any consequential losses.
17. Refund in the case of Forgery
A sale will be cancelled, and the amount paid refunded to the Buyer if a Lot
(other than a miscellaneous item not described in the catalogue) sold by us
proves to have been a Forgery. We shall not however be obliged to refund any
amounts if either
a)the catalogue description or saleroom notice at the auction date
corresponded to the generally accepted opinion of scholars or experts at that
time, or fairly indicated that there was a conflict of opinions, or
b)it can be demonstrated that the Lot is a Forgery 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 the auction was unreasonably
expensive or impracticable or likely to have caused damage to the Lot.
Furthermore, the Buyer should note that this refund can be obtained only if
the following conditions are met:
i. the Buyer must notify us in writing, within three months of the auction
date, that in his view the Lot concerned is a forgery;
ii. the Buyer must then return the item to us within fourteen days, in the same
condition as at the auction date; and
iii.as soon as possible following return of the Lot, the Buyer must produce
evidence satisfactory to us that the Lot is a Forgery and that he is
able to transfer good title to us, free from any third party claims. In no
circumstances shall we be required to pay the Buyer any more than the
amount paid by him for the Lot concerned and the Buyer shall have no
claim for interest. The benefit of this guarantee is not capable of being
transferred, and is solely for the benefit of the person to whom the original
invoice was made out by us in respect of the Lot when sold and who,
since the sale, has remained the owner of the Lot without disposing of any
interest in it to any third party. We shall be entitled to rely on any scientific
or other process to establish that the Lot is not a Forgery, whether or not
such process was used or in use at the date of the auction.
D. Conditions Applicable to both Buyers
and Sellers
18. Copyright
The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material relating to a Lot
is and shall remain at all times our property and shall not be used by the Buyer
nor anyone else without our prior written consent. Where the vendor provides
the text, photographs and illustrations for publication the vendor warrants that
use is authorised by the copyright owner and indemnifies the Company against
claims and costs arising from wrongful use.

and confidentiality of our clients’ information and provide the same level of
protection for clients’ information as provided within the EU, whether or not

information. By agreeing to these Conditions of Business, clients agree to such
