It is the responsibility of each prospective bidder to personally inspect each lot and verify its condition prior to bidding.

Payment, pickup & shipping:
Successful buyers will receive an invoice after the end of the auction. We ask that you pay for and collect the auctioned items by noon on the day following the auction.

For buyers via the online portals, we reserve the right to collect payment on the third working day after the auction if payment has not been received.

Particular attention is drawn to Clause 12 of our Terms of Service which has been revised and is strictly enforced due to lack of space.

Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of all information regarding authorship, attribution, provenance, date, age, provenance and condition of any lot, whether or not such information forms part of the description of such lot. Regardless of whether such a statement is made orally or in the catalogue, it is an expression of opinion and not a guarantee or representation of facts by the auctioneers. Any buyer who bids on a lot confirms that they are fully satisfied of the attribution and condition of the lot. The following is for guidance only and does not form part of any contract.

A. An artist's first name(s) (or dots where not known) and last name are, in our opinion, indicative of a work by the artist.

The addition of a question mark after any of the above cataloging terms indicates a doubt.


All UK art market professionals (including auctioneers) are required to collect a royalty on all qualifying artworks. This applies to living artists and artists who have died in the last 70 years. This payment will be charged on qualifying artworks sold at a hammer price in excess of the sterling equivalent of €1,000 (sterling equivalent will vary according to applicable interest rates calculated by the artist's Resale Right Service Hub based on the European Central Bank reference rate published at 2.15pm on the day of sale, available at www.dacs.org.uk).

All items in this catalog marked 'ü' are Potential Qualifying Items and the royalty will be payable if the hammer price is over the £1,000 equivalent in British Pounds. The license fee is added to the purchase invoices and must be paid before the items can be released. All royalties are paid by the auctioneers to the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) and the auctioneer does not withhold any handling charges or additional fees in relation to these fees. This fee may also apply to lots not marked 'ü' and buyers need to see for themselves.

The royalty on qualifying items that sell for more than the £1,000 sterling equivalent but less than the £50,000 sterling equivalent is 4%. Tiered royalty rates apply to qualifying items sold for more than the UK equivalent of €50,000. A full list of royalty rates and thresholds can be found at www.dacs.org.uk. There is no VAT on this license fee.


Lots sold at auction may contain endangered or other animal and plant species such as ivory, tortoiseshell, crocodile skin, whalebone, ebony or rosewood. Some countries restrict or prohibit the import or export of items containing these materials, or require a license/permit for their transfer (e.g. a CITES license). Before bidding on any lot that may contain these or similar materials, buyers must familiarize themselves with the relevant laws and regulations governing their movement.


Gemstones are often treated to enhance color and improve appearance. They can be heated or treated with oil or resin to intensify color and transparency. Other techniques such as dyeing, blasting, coating and impregnating can also be used. Buyers must be aware that the stone is a natural stone unless otherwise specifically stated in the catalogue. Buyers must understand that any treatment may not be permanent and that special care may be required in the future.


Any lot purchased at auction may be subject to export restrictions and may require a license to export from the UK. Buyer is responsible for obtaining all necessary licenses (including any licenses that may be required for importation into the country of destination) - refusal of such license is no reason for Buyer to cancel the purchase.


All members of the public on the premises of Clarke and Simpson Auctions Ltd. go there at your own risk and must observe the layout of the buildings and grounds and the relevant safety precautions. Accordingly, neither the Auctioneer nor its employees or agents shall be liable for death or personal injury (except as required by law) or similar security or persons visiting the premises.


All sellers have received a copy of Clarke & Simpson's auction terms and conditions relating to the submission of lots for sale and these terms and conditions should be read in accordance with this consignment documentation.
