Other than the descriptions as to age, attribution, and physical condition, all property is sold “AS IS”; any statement as to quality, rarity, or provenance is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken or relied upon as statement or representation of fact. Value Points and Comments are only subjective opinions offered by Theriault’s.

At the time of contact, Buyer will receive instructions from our office on how to proceed. 3. The gallery reserves the right to reject any bid from any bidder. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser.
