Removal of lots

Saturday, 27th June during the auction
Monday, 29th June March from 10am to 6pm
Tuesday, 30th from 10am to 6pm.


The highest bidder - the last bidder - is the successful bidder. He has the obligation to pay the auction price for the lot in cash, plus 23% for costs and VAT. The auction house maintains the right to refuse any bid, to take any decision , to group or withdraw lots without justifying its decision. According to the law of 30 June 1994 on authors’ rights, the Buyer shall pay in addition to the hammer price an Artist Resale Right (droit de suite) of 4% on the part of the hammer price from 2,000 €. The “droit de suite” is over when the artist died for more than 70 years. In case of “live bidding”, the Auction House will charge the buyer an extra commission: 1.5% for Drouot Digital(in the event of an online auction, these 1.5% are not applicable) or 5% for Invaluable. Works for sale match the description in the catalogue and are complete, except if indicated otherwise. Works in a lot are not collated. Works up for sale that have been exhibited in accordance with the cata- logue description cannot be consulted or examined during the sale. In case of contention, or a bidding error, the lot will be cal- led out again. The Bailiff or Notary in attendance has final say, and his decisions cannot be appealed, regardingall disputes that might occur concerning the bidding during the auction. Mr M. Lhomme, bookseller, 9 rue des Carmes, 4000 Liege will, under the usual conditions and fees, place orders for parties unable to attend the auction. Numerical order will be followed. Buyers are required to pay for and pick up the attributed lots within 10 working days following the auction. After this time, the auction house has the right, without formal advance notice to put the lots that have been paid for, but not picked up, up for sale again. Notwithstanding legal proceedings for payment from the defaulting buyer, within the indicated deadline, unpaid lots can be put up for sale again when the auction house judges opportune to do so. In this case, the buyer will have to pay the potential diffe- rence in price as well as all costs and outlays for the sale necessary to sell the lot again. He cannot claim the surplus, if there is one. Bills and bank statements are payable in full. For any unpaid sum that is due, interest will be added, by right, with no advance formal notice at the rate of 1% per month. Moreover, in the case of non-payment of the owed amounts when due, by right, there will be additional charges of a lump sum amount of 15% for contractual damages and interest, with a minimum of 65€, in addition to late interest. All bidders are reputed to act in their own name and are held personally responsible for pay- ment of the lots that are sold to them in whatever manner. They must pay the total amount in Belgian currency or with a certi- fied check before removing the lots, and this within the foreseen time period stated in article 8. In the case of payment with a non-certified check, the auction house has the right to defer delivery of goods sold until the check has been cashed. The objects will remain at the risk of the buyer during this additional time period. By decision of the Association of Auction houses of 30 November 1984, the splitting of bills after the sale is not accepted, and only purchase orders presented to the auction house or its delegate will be taken into consideration. In case of contention, the courts of Liege will have sole jurisdiction. Offices of Misters F. Dessart, J-M. Mesters, P.
