Sales conditions

Conditions of sale

The auction sales organized by the Auction House

Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels are hereby subject

to the following conditions of sale:

Goods put up for sale

Potential purchasers are invited to examine the

goods that might be of interest to them during

the exhibits which are organized by the Auction

House Cornette de Saint Cyr before the auctions.

Condition reports may be requested from the Auction

House by letter, telephone or electronic mail.

They will be sent free of charge but are to be used for

information only. The reports will include the artistic

and scientific information known to the Auction

House at the date of the sale and the latter will not

accept any responsibility for errors or omissions.

The descriptions to be found in the catalogue are

drawn up by the Auction House and where applicable

by the expert who assists the former, subject

to notices and corrections given when the lot

is presented and included in the bill of sale. Sizes,

weights and estimates are given for information

purposes only. The colors of the works included in

the catalogue may vary due to printing techniques.

The lack of information on the condition of the

goods in the catalogue will by no means imply

that the lot is in a perfect state of preservation

or free from restoration, wear, cracks, relining or

other imperfection.

The goods are sold in the state they are found at

the time of sale.

As the prior exhibit has enabled potential purchasers

to examine the object, no claim will be

accepted once the hammer has gone down.

The indications appearing on the catalogues, advertisements,

brochures and any other written

material produced by the Auction House Cornette

de Saint Cyr Brussels should be considered

as simple indications and are not binding in any

case. They do not guarantee the exactitude of a

declaration relative to the author, origin, date, age,

attribution, estimates, weight, sizes or material

state of the lot. Consequently buyers must verify

for themselves the nature and material states of

the lots.

Any claim must reach the Auction by recorded

latter not later than 8 days after the retrieval of

the object or cannot be considered. In any case, for

sales subject to article 1649 quarter of the Belgian

Civil Code, the seller answers to the consumer

for any fault of conformity that exists when the

good is delivered or which appears within a delay

of one year of this date; the buyer must inform

the seller of the existence of a fault of conformity

within a delay of two months of noticing the fault.

ln the event of a withdrawal of an article prior to

the sale by a depositor and after the publication

of the catalogue or, in the event of a modification

to the minimum price rendering it impossible to

put the article up for sale immediately, the seller

will be obliged to pay the purchaser and seller fees

calculated on the basis of the median estimate

stipulated in the catalogue to the Auction House

Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels by way of compensation.

The article which has been withdrawn will

not be returned to the seller until the aforementioned

fees are paid. If no payment is forthcoming,

the article will be put up for sale once again in line

with the terms of the initial sale requisition.

Auction sales

The auction sales are carried out in the order of

the catalogue numbers. The bidders are invited

to make themselves known to the Auction House

Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels before the sale to

ensure that their personal details are recorded


Bidders are generally present in the room.

However, any bidder who would like to place an

absentee bid in writing or bid by telephone may

use the form, intended for this purpose, to be

found at the end of the sale catalogue or on the

websites, www.cornettedesaintcyr.

com or

fr. The form should be sent to the Auction House

Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels together with a

bank identification slip [RIB in France] or bank

details at least two days before the sale.

The Auction House Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels

will deal with auction sales by telephone and

absentee bids free of charge. In all cases, the Auction

House Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels cannot

be held responsible for a problem with the telephone

link along with an error or omission in the

execution of the absentee bids received.

ln the event of two identical absentee bids, preference

will be given to the earliest absentee bid.

The bidder who is present in the room shall have

priority over an absentee bid should the two bids

be of equivalent amounts. The successful bidder

will be deemed to be the individual who has made

the highest bid. In the event of a double bid which

is confirmed as such by the auctioneer, the lot will

be put up for sale again and any or all persons

present will have the right to take part in the second

sale by auction.


Sales are to be paid for in cash and in euros. Payment

must be paid immediately after the sale. In

the event that the successful bidder has not given

their personal information before the sale, they

will be required to provide proof of identity and

bank details.

ln addition to the hammer price, purchasers will

be required to pay the following costs and taxes

per lot and per block:

- from 1 to 500 000 € : 30%

- above 500.001 € : 19%

For lots from countries outside the European Union,

import tax will be added as follows:

For lots with numbers preceded by the sign:

* additional tax at 6 % of the hammer price.

For lots with numbers preceded by the sign:

** additional tax at 21 % of the hammer price.

The successful bidder may pay using one of the

following methods:

- in cash within the limits of the legislation in force

- by bank transfer

- by certified cheque

- by credit card except American Express

Failure to pay

In case of non-payment within 20 days of sale, the

full unpaid amount owed by the purchaser will

be increased automatically and without formal

notice by 15% in order to cover damages suffered,

with a minimum interest amount of €100.

A late payment interest on business transactions,

in accordance with the law of 02/08/2002, will

also be charged as of the due date of the invoice,

automatically and without prior formal notice.

The fact that this clause is applied will not hinder

the awarding of damages and costs for the legal

proceedings which will be required, and does not

exclude the article being put up for sale again in a

new auction, procedure called “folle enchère“

Within the framework of the folle enchère procedure,

the Auction House hereby reserves the right

to claim for the payment of the difference between

the initial hammer price and the subsequent hammer

price obtained from the folle enchère procedure,

if it is lower, together with the costs incurred

due to the second Auction sale from the defaulting

successful bidder.

The Auction House Cornette de Saint Cyr Brussels

hereby reserves the right to offset against the

amounts owed to the defaulting successful bidder.

Furthermore, the Auction House Cornette de Saint

Cyr hereby reserves the right to exclude any or all

successful bidder who has not complied with these

conditions of sale from its future auction sales.

Collection of purchases

No lot will be handed over to the purchasers before

all of the amounts owed are settled.

ln the event of payment with a non-certified

cheque or by bank transfer, delivery of the articles

may be differed until receipt of the amounts

owed. As soon as the auction sale is concluded,

the articles will be placed under the purchaser’s

full responsibility.

not been taken on the date of sale, you are advised
