Sales conditions


Payment shall be made in full in euros. In addition to the hammer price per lot and

digressive selling fees, buyers shall be required to pay the following taxes and charges:

• 25% tax-free of the hammer price up to and including € 150 000

• 20.50% tax-free of any amount in excess of € 150 000 up to and including € 500 000

• 17% tax-free of any amount in excess of € 500 000

The auction will follow the order of the catalogue numbers. The Auction House and

Experts reserve the right, in the interest of sales, to group together or split the catalogue

numbers. The sizes and weight of the works are provided on an indicative basis.


We have provided information on the condition of the objects in accordance with

our means. Goods are sold in the condition they are found at the time of sale. The

condition of the items noted in the catalogue is on a strictly indicative basis. In cases

where there is no note in the catalogue, this in no way implies that the lot is in perfect

condition or does not need to be restored, have wear and tear, cracks, require re-lining

or contain other imperfections. As an opportunity is afforded to examine the items

described in the catalogue in the form of an exhibition, no claims will be accepted

with respect to the condition thereof, once the auction has been completed and the

item handed over. Re-Lining, cradling, and lining are considered to be a conservation

measure, not a defect. On request, a report on the condition of the item can be

provided for lots whose value is estimated at above €1000. Estimations are provided

on a purely indicative basis. The information on the source/origin of the item is

provided by the seller and Giquello et Associés SARL may not be held liable for this.


All bidders who wish to make an offer or bid by telephone may send a request, by

post, email or fax to Giquello et Associés SARL, along with their bank details. The

telephone auctions are a free service provided to customers who are not in a position

to attend. Giquello et Associés SARL and its staff cannot be held liable in the event

of a problem with the telephone connection. When two bids are identical, priority is

given to the first bid received. In the event of auction, the price to be paid is the auction

price, plus fees, in accordance with the applicable conditions at the time of sale.


A facility for online auctions is provided. Auctions are carried out on the www. website, a technical platform for remote participation in public

auctions taking place in the auction rooms. Auctions press is the partner company

for users of Drouot Live. Users wishing to participate in online auctions via the

Drouot Live platform must familiarize themselves, and accept, without reservation,

the conditions of use of this platform (available at, which are

independent and additional to the present terms and conditions of sale.


I/The purchaser shall be the highest and last bidder provided that the auction price is

equal to or greater than any reserve. If a reserve price has been stipulated by the seller,

Giquello et Associés SARL reserves the right to make bids on behalf of the seller until

the last auction increment below that amount, either by making successive bids, or by

making bids in response to other bidders. However, the seller will not be permitted to

make bids either directly or through an agent. The fall of the hammer marks the end

of the auction and the word “sold” or any other equivalent shall result in the formation

of a contract between the seller and the last accepted bidder. In the event of a dispute

at the end of the bidding, i.e. If it has been established that one or more bidders

simultaneously made an equivalent bid, either aloud, or by making a sign, and claim

the item after “sold” is pronounced, the object will be immediately put to auction

again at the price offered by the bidders and the public will be invited to bid again.

Once sold, the items become the sole responsibility of the buyer. The buyer should

take measures to ensure that the lot is insured as of the purchase. The buyer may not

hold Giquello et Associés SARL, liable in the event of loss, theft or damage to the lot.

II/VAT-Profit margin scheme- goods not marked by a symbol:

A/All unmarked goods will be sold under the profit margin scheme and the auction

price will not be increased by VAT. The purchase commission will be increased by a

VAT equivalent amount (20 % except for books at 5.5%) included in the margin. This

VAT forms part of the purchase commission and will not be mentioned separately in

our documents.

III/Lots from outside the EU under the temporary admission scheme: (marked

by a * in the catalogue and/or stated at the beginning of the sale process). To the

commissions and taxes indicated above at the beginning of the sale conditions,

additional costs of 5.5 % pre-tax should be added to the auction price or 20 % pre-tax

for jewels and watches, wines and spirits, multiples and automobiles, additional costs

increased by VAT currently 20% (5.5% for books).

IV /Reimbursement conditions for the additional costs and VAT (cf: 7th VAT Directive

applicable on 01.01.1995)

VAT on the commissions and on the additional costs may be reimbursed to the buyer

non-resident of the EU on presentation of proof of export outside the EU providing

the buyer has sent to SARL Giquello et Associés copy n°3 of the customs export form

and that this export took place within two months as from the auction date (beyond

this deadline, no reimbursement will be possible). Giquello et Associés SARL should

be shown as the sender of the said customs document.

B/ If the lot is delivered in a member state of the EU, the VAT on the commissions

and on the additional costs may be reimbursed to an EU buyer who proves having

an Intracommunity VAT number and a document proving delivery in their member

state subject to providing proof of transport from France to another member state,

within one month as from the sale date (beyond this deadline, no reimbursement will

be possible).


The buyer is required to pay in full and provide their name and address. In accordance

with TRACFIN rules, payment may not be made by a third party. In the event of

payment by non-certified cheque, the delivery of the items may be postponed until the

cheque has been processed. A number of weeks may be required. The buyers may not

take delivery of their purchases until payment has been received by the bank. Cheques

from foreign banks will only be authorised after prior agreement by the Auction House.

To that end, buyers are encouraged to obtain, before the auction, a letter of credit

from their bank for an approximate value of the amount they intend to spend, to be

provided to the Auction House. Payment in cash in accordance with Decree n°2010-

662 of 16 June 2010 pursuant to Article L. 112-6 of the Monetary and Financial Code

on the prohibition on payment in cash for certain debts. For exports outside the EU,

reimbursement of VAT may only be obtained after obtaining proof that the item has

been exported within 2 months of the sale. Reimbursement will be made in the name

of the buyer. (cf: 7th VAT Directive applicable as of 01.01.1995). Buyer slips are payable

at the reception. Failing payment within 30 days, Giquello et Associés SARL may

require as of right and without any prior notice, the payment of compensation of € 40

for recovery costs (Art L 441-3 and Art L 441-6 of the Commercial Code).


In accordance with the provisions of Article L. 321-14 of the Commercial Code, should

the buyer fail to make the payment, after notice has remained without effect, the item

will be placed for sale on the request of the seller for false bidding; if the seller does

not formulate a request within one month of the auction, they give us all rights to act

in their name and on their behalf, as we choose, to pursue the buyer for cancellation

of the sale three months after the sale, or to pursue execution of the payment of the

said sale, in both cases claiming all damages and interest, fees and other sums we

deem to be desirable.

The French State has a pre-emptive right to purchase art works or private documents

offered for sale to the public. The exercise of this right applies just after the hammer

falls, and the State representative notifies their intention to acquire the item and to

substitute itself for the highest bidder, and must confirm the acquisition within 15

days. Giquello et Associés will not accept liability with respect to the conditions of preemptive

acquisition by the French State. Export of certain cultural goods is subject to the

acquisition of a certificate of free circulation for cultural goods. Under no circumstances

may the time required to obtain the certificate be invoked to justify late payment. Under

no circumstances may Giquello et Associés SARL and/or the Seller be held liable

should the authorities refuse to deliver the said certificate.
