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.
