details. Any person who damages a Lot will be held liable for the loss caused.

4. CONDUCT OF THE SALE
Our Sales are public auctions which persons may attend and you should take the opportunity to do so. We do
reserve the right at our sole discretion to refuse admission to our premises or to any Sale without stating a
reason. We have complete discretion as to whether the Sale proceeds, whether any Lot is included in the
Sale, the manner in which the Sale is conducted and we may offer Lots for Sale in any order we choose
notwithstanding the numbers given to Lots in the Catalogue. You should therefore check the date and
starting time of the Sale, whether there have been any withdrawals or late entries. Remember that
withdrawals and late entries may affect the time at which a Lot you are interested in is put up for Sale. We
have complete discretion to refuse any bid, to nominate any bidding increment we consider appropriate, to
divide any Lot, to combine two or more Lots, to withdraw any Lot from a Sale and, before the Sale has been
closed, to put up any Lot for auction again.
Some lots may carry a reserve. The auctioneer reserves the right not to sell an item below the confidential
price, or will repurchase the item on behalf of the consignor or of BFA. If a reserve exists the auctioneer
reserves the right to bid on any lot on behalf of the consignor up to the amount of the reserve against any
floor or mail bidders. The auctioneer also reserves the right to bid on any lot on behalf of BFA. The Buyer
will be the Bidder who makes the highest bid acceptable to the Auctioneer for any Lot (subject to any
applicable Reserve) to whom the Lot is knocked down by the Auctioneer at the fall of the Auctioneer’s
Any dispute as to the highest acceptable bid will be settled by the Auctioneer at his or her absolute
discretion. All bids tendered will relate to the actual Lot number announced by the Auctioneer. An electronic
currency converter may be used at the Sale. This equipment is provided as a general guide as to the
equivalent amount in certain currencies of a given bid. All estimates are in POUNDS STERLING. We do
not accept any responsibility for any errors which may occur in the use of the currency converter. We may
use video cameras to record the Sale.
We do not accept bids from any person who has not completed and delivered to us one of our Bidding
Forms, either our Bidder Registration Form, Absentee Bidding Form or Telephone Bidding Form. You will
be asked for proof of identity, residence and references, which, when asked for, you must supply if your bids
are to be accepted by us. Please bring your passport, driving license (or similar photographic proof of
identity) and proof of address. We may request a deposit from you before allowing you to bid. We may
refuse entry to a Sale to any person even if that person has completed a Bidding Form.
Bidding in person
You should come to our Bidder registration desk at the Sale venue and fill out a Bidder Registration Form on
(or, if possible, before) the day of the Sale. The bidding number system is sometimes referred to as “paddle
bidding”. You will be issued with a large card (a “paddle”) with a printed number on it. This will be
attributed to you for the purposes of the Sale. Should you be a successful Bidder you will need to ensure that
your number can be clearly seen by the Auctioneer and that it is your number which is identified as the
Buyer’s. You should not let anyone else use your paddle as all Lots will be invoiced to the name and address
given on your Bidder Registration Form. Once an invoice is issued it will not be changed. If there is any
doubt as to the Hammer Price of, or whether you are the successful Bidder of, a particular Lot, you must
draw this to the attention of the Auctioneer before the next Lot is offered for Sale. At the end of the Sale, or
when you have finished bidding please return your paddle to the Bidder registration desk.
Bidding by telephone (only available on lots with a low estimate greater than £500)
If you wish to bid at the Sale by telephone, please complete a Telephone Bidding Form, which is available
from our offices or in the Catalogue. Please then return it to the office responsible
for the Sale at least 24 hours in advance of the Sale. It is your responsibility to check with our Bids Office
that your bid has been received. Telephone calls will be recorded. The telephone bidding facility is a
discretionary service and may not be available in relation to all Lots. We will not be responsible for bidding
on your behalf if you are unavailable at the time of the Sale or if the telephone connection is interrupted
during bidding. Our staff will be available for phone calls in foreign languages as long as previously agreed
Bidding by post or fax
Absentee Bidding Forms can be found in the back of this Catalogue and should be completed and sent to the
office responsible for the Sale. It is in your interest to return your form as soon as possible, as if two or more
Bidders submit identical bids for a Lot, the first bid received takes preference. In any event, all bids should
be received at least 24 hours before the start of the Sale. Please check your Absentee Bidding Form carefully
before returning it to us, fully completed and signed by you. It is your responsibility to check with our Bids
Office that your bid has been received. This additional service is complimentary and confidential. Such bids
are made at your own risk and we cannot accept liability for our failure to receive and/or place any such bids.
All bids made on your behalf will be made at the lowest level possible subject to Reserves and other bids
made for the Lot. Where appropriate your bids will be rounded down to the nearest amount consistent with
the Auctioneer’s bidding increments. New Bidders must also provide proof of identity and address when
submitting bids. Failure to do this will result in your bid not being placed.

Bidding through an agent
Bids will be accepted as placed on behalf of the person named as the principal on the Bidding Form although

from the principal confirming the agent’s authority to bid. For further details, please contact Customer
