WHYTE'S THE ECLECTIC COLLECTOR SATURDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2018 AT 11AM
2 IMPORTANT NOTES ALL LOTS ARE SOLD SUBJECT TO OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED ON PAGE 2 BUYERS’ COMMISSION 20% (24.6% including VAT) is added to the hammer price of all lots purchased. A further charge of 3% to 5% plus VAT may be charged to buyers who bid through Invaluable or The- Saleroom. There is no extra fee to buyers who bid through Whyte’s on-line partner Auction Mobility (accessed directly from our website, www.whytes.ie or www.bid.whytes.ie ). ROOM BIDDERS 1. Room bidders must register and obtain a bidding number on arrival. Proof of identity is required from clients new to us. 2. If successful in obtaining a lot please ensure you display your number clearly to the auctioneer and that it is your number that is called out. If there is any doubt about the hammer price or buyer, please draw this to the attention of the auctioneer immediately. 3. Payment may be made by cash, bank draft, cleared cheque, debit or credit card — we accept Mastercard or Visa (maximum € 500). Note: debit or credit card puchases may only be collected by or delivered to the cardholder. LIVE INTERNET BIDDING You can bid “live” at this auction on our website. With live audio and visual broadcast you can see and hear the auctioneer and bid at the click of a mouse from the comfort of your home or office or wherever you can log on to the world wide web. You can even get an iPhone app to bid live at Whyte’s from your mobile phone. Details from our website, www.whytes.ie There is no extra charge for bidding with our dedicated platform www.bid.whytes.ie ABSENTEE BIDDING 1. If you are unable to attend you may bid before the sale, using the form provided. Enter the maximum you are prepared to offer for each lot and the auctioneer will represent you as if you are personally attending the sale. Lots are knocked down at one step above the next highest bid, and not necessarily at your highest bid. Example: your bid is € 1000 and next highest bid is € 800 — the hammer price is € 850. 2. LIMIT BIDDING: Absentee bidders may limit their total purchases to a set amount by entering their limit on the bidding form. This is especially useful for bidders wishing to cover as many lots as possible while setting a maximum amount to spend. 3. “OR” BIDDING: Absentee bidders who wish to bid on two or more lots, but only wish to purchase one, may do so by entering “OR” between the bids — the lots will be bid on in catalogue order. 4. EQUAL BIDS: In the event of equal bids being received for the same lot the first received will be given preference. If the instruction “break ties” is entered on the bid form the auctioneer will increase the bid by one step in the event of equal bids being received or in the event of a tie with a room bidder. 5. “BUY” BIDS: Unless otherwise instructed bids of “Buy” or “Buy at Best” shall be taken to indicate bids of up to three times the stated higher estimate in the catalogue. 6. INVOICING AND PAYMENT: Successful absentee bidders will be sent a pro forma invoice after the sale with details of payment methods. All invoices must be paid within 7 days of the date of the sale or the lot(s) may be deemed in default and any subsequent losses incurred on resale become the responsibility of the bidder. The Auctioneers and House Agents Act, under which we are licensed to hold public auctions, only allows for lots to be handed over to purchasers when paid for in full. TELEPHONE BIDDING Subject to availability we can telephone clients during the sale. This facility is only available on lots with a lower estimate of € 500 or more. CONDITION OF LOTS Note: The lots in this sale are old artefacts and documents and vary greatly in condition. They are therefore offered with all faults and buyers are strongly recommended to satisfy themselves as to condition by inspecting them beforehand. Please see Terms and Conditions on page 6. SHIPPING / POSTAGE We do not handle this ourselves but will recommend a suitable company who can collect your purchases on your behalf and pack and despatch them to you once they have been paid for. PRICES REALISED A complete list of prices realised and unsold lots will be sent automatically to all absentee bidders and will be posted to our Internet website (www.whytes.ie ) on the day after the sale. FIREARMS Most firearms offered in this sale are either antiques or deactivated. Those that are not can only be delivered to persons with a valid firearms licence. EXPORT LICENCES May be required for objects of archaeological interest or of national importance sold to buyers outside the State. IVORY Certain countries, including the USA, ban the importation of ivory including antique worked items. Such lots may be seized and confiscated by the relevant authorities.
