The lots listed in this catalog are offered by Leighton Galleries Inc. as agent for our consignor(s) subject to the following terms and conditions. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these Conditions of Sale.
ALL GOODS ARE SOLD "AS IS" and ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Although some condition reports are included in this catalog, they do not document every condition defect that may be present. This property is generally antique or vintage, and will have been used during its lifetime. These are not new, in the box items. If you are not certain about the condition of a particular piece, DO NOT BID. It is the responsibility of prospective bidders to inspect the goods and decide their level of interest. Neither the auctioneer, nor the consignor, is responsible for the accuracy of any printed or verbal descriptions. All gold, silver, diamonds and gemstones are guaranteed. All weights and measurements are approximate.
Online Bids - We will use all available, reasonable efforts to execute online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the internet or software malfunctions related to the execution of online bids.
A buyer's premium of 20% is added to the purchase price of every item sold via LiveAuctioneers. New Jersey buyers must also pay the 7% New Jersey sales tax on the total purchase price, including premium. Items shipped out of state are exempt from paying New Jersey sales tax.
Any item damaged during the pre-auction preview must be paid for immediately, with the fair market price being determined by LEIGHTON.
The auctioneer may reject any bid or raise not commensurate with the value of the lot.
Items may be withdrawn at any time prior to the offering of each lot.
On a rare occasion, a lot may be offered subject to a reserve. This is a minimum price below which a lot will not sell.
If within five business days of the sale of any lot, the purchaser notifies LEIGHTON that the lot so sold is a counterfeit and satisfies LEIGHTON with proof within ten business days of such notice, LEIGHTON will rescind the sale and the purchase price will be refunded. This condition is subject to the lot being returned to LEIGHTON in the same condition as when sold.
The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer is the purchaser. In the event of a dispute, the decision of the auctioneer is the sole and final remedy.
The record of sale kept by the auction house will be taken as final in the event of any dispute.
The purchaser assumes complete responsibility for items at announcement of the word "sold".
SHIPPING/DELIVERY - Leighton Galleries does NOT provide any shipping service whatsoever. All shipping and related costs are the responsibility of the purchaser and these costs MUST be factored into the purchase price prior to bidding.

Potential buyers of expensive lots are encouraged to discuss payment before the sale. A $25 fee will be charged for returned checks. If a check fails to clear after the second deposit, the purchaser will be held responsible for any and all fees incurred until we have collected good funds. Bad checks or non payment of purchases will be prosecuted by LEIGHTON to the fullest extent permissible by law, and the names of the offenders will be announced to the public and to other auction firms.
LEIGHTON reserves the right to advertise the selling price (with photo) of any lot.
