Length of back: 14ins, 356mm
Sold with the certificate of Florian Leonhard, London 2012.
£40,000 - £60,000
The owner of this violin by Annibale Fagnola, made in Turin in 1930, last saw his violin in 1958 when he
locked the case after playing it for the last time. Moving forward over fifty years to the day he brought a
locked case to one of our UK appraisal days, the owner explained that he had lost the key to his rather
battered but heavy old wooden case, and did I have any way of opening it? Upon being asked what
was inside he couldn’t remember, only that it had been given to him whilst at school. French? English?
German - Italian? - he simply couldn’t recall. Brompton’s accepted the case and promised to open it.
Over a month later a key was finally found that worked (after much jiggling and cajoling) and hey
presto! A superb Fagnola and one very happy and surprised owner.

Sold with the original fingerboard, bearing the W.E. Hill & Sons Registration No. P128 and with the
certificate of Peter Biddulph, London 2012
Pietro Giovanni Mantegazza is an important figure in Italian violin making, between the great masters
of the classical period, and the renaissance led by Pressenda and Rocca in Turin in the next generation.
Evidently the pupil of Carlo Ferdinando Landolphi, his work is more consistent and disciplined, but
retains the fluidity of earlier makers. He also retained something of the great varnishes of the 17th
century, maintaining a soft, deeply coloured recipe of depth and richness. He made a relatively large
number of violas, of which this is a striking and characteristic example. The slightly elongated, slender
soundholes show Landolphi’s influence, as does the strongly defined and distinctive head. The strong
arching, of medium height but considerable fullness, is typical of Mantegazza’s work, and seems to be
his own development. Although slightly reduced in the upper bouts, this viola is a very original and
authentic instrument.

Additional Information
June 27th 2012
Conditions of Business
The conditions set out below are the terms on which we contract, as
auctioneers, with sellers and, as agent acting on behalf of sellers, with buyers.
Buyers and sellers should read the conditions carefully. Buyers’ attention is
drawn in particular to clause 16 which limits our liability. For ease of reference,
the conditions are divided into sections: Section A gives a background to some
of the terms that are used in the Conditions generally; Section B is of particular
relevance to sellers; Section C to buyers; and Section D to both sellers and
buyers.
4. Expenses
Bromptons will charge the Seller for all its out of pocket expenditure over and
above its agreed fee, in particular:
a)all costs of Packing and shipping the Lot to us for sale;
b)all applicable transit insurance costs;
c)all costs relating to packing and shipping the lot if it is returned to the Seller;
d)all applicable customs duties;
A. Background to Terms used in
these Conditions
f ) all examination costs incurred by external experts we believe appropriate, if
agreed in advance with the Seller
1. In the conditions set out below, some terms are used regularly that need
explanation.
They are as follows:
g)photography charges of £35 per lot advertised online, and where previously
agreed charges for the catalogue photography.
• “the Buyer” means the person with the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer;
h)all Storage costs of the lot after the sale;
• “the Lot” means any item deposited with us for sale at auction and, in
particular, the item or items described against any lot number in any
catalogue;
i) all applicable VAT.
• “the Hammer Price” means the amount of the highest bid accepted by the
auctioneer in relation to a Lot;
• “the Buyer’s premium” means the charge payable by the Buyer as a percentage
of the Hammer Price, at the rates set out in clause 15(a) in Section C;
• “the Reserve” means the amount below which we agree with the Seller that
the Lot cannot be sold;
• “Forgery” means a Lot constituting an imitation originally conceived and
executed as a whole with a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship,
origin, age, period, culture or source where the correct description as to such
matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue and which at the
date of the auction had a value materially less than it would have had if it
had been in accordance with the description in the catalogue. Accordingly,
no Lot shall be capable of being a Forgery by reason of any damage and/or
restoration work of any kind (including re-enamelling).
• “The Insured Value” means the amount that Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited
in its absolute discretion from time to time shall consider to be the value for
which a Lot should be covered by insurance (whether or not insurance is
arranged by us).
B. The Seller
2. Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s Role as Agent.
Our sales at public auction are undertaken as agent, on behalf of the Seller. The
contract for the sale of the Lot will be between the Seller and the Buyer.
3. Commission
We shall charge the Seller commission at a rate agreed between the Seller and
Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited. VAT at the appropriate rate will be charged on
the commission. We shall also collect from the Buyer a premium in addition to
the Hammer Price. We shall be entitled to retain this premium.
218
e)all restoration of the Lot agreed in advance with the Seller
Bromptons will on request provide advance estimates of such expenditure and
the Seller is directed to www.bromptonsauctioneers.com where applicable
rates for the more routine of these expenses are posted from time to time. The
Seller is aware that Bromptons will not have control of the level of such third
party charging and the Seller is advised, if concerned, to make his/its own
direct advance enquiries of, for example relevant insurance, customs and vat
authorities.
5a. Where the Lot is included under Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s Policy
a)Unless we agree otherwise, the Lot will be automatically included as
consigned or entrusted goods under Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s
Fine Art Policy for the amount that we from time to time consider to be its
appropriate value. This Value is not an undertaking by us that the Lot will be
sold for this amount.
b)We shall charge the Seller a fee for the inclusion of the Lot under our policy at
the rate of 1.5% of the Hammer Price. If we arrange transport, we may charge
the Seller an additional fee based on the value of the Lot and the particular
circumstances of the requirements for the transport to maintain the benefit of
the inclusion of the Lot under Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited’s policy during
such transport. Although we shall suggest carriers if specifically requested, we
cannot accept any liability in this respect.
c)The Lot will retain the benefit of inclusion under Brompton’s Auctioneers
Limited’s policy until the expiry of seven days after the sale. If the Lot has not
been sold, it will be at the Seller’s risk after that time.
d)We are unable to accept responsibility for damage caused by woodworm,
changes in atmospheric conditions or acts of terrorism.
5b. Owner’s Insurance
If the Seller specifically instructs us not to insure the Lot, it will remain at the
Seller’s risk at all times until the Buyer has made payment in full. The Seller will
indemnify us and our employees and agents, and the Buyer (where applicable)
against any claim made against us or them in respect of the Lot, however that
claim may arise. The Seller will also reimburse us and them on demand for any
expenses we or they may incur as a result of such a claim, even if we or they are
found to have been negligent and even where such reimbursement is required
of a payment made without any legal liability being proved. The Seller must
notify the Seller’s insurers of the terms of this clause.
b)The Seller may not bid for the Lot nor employ any person to do so on the
Seller’s behalf, although we shall have the right to bid on the Seller’s behalf up
to the amount of the Reserve.
6. The Seller’s Undertakings regarding the Lot
This clause sets out the basis on which we shall handle the Lot and which will
govern the Seller’s relationship with the Buyer. If that basis proves incorrect in
any way, either we or the Buyer may take legal action against the Seller.
We shall handle the Lot, and the Buyer will purchase, on the basis of the Seller’s
undertakings that:
9. After the Sale
a)the Seller is the sole owner of the Lot with an unrestricted right to transfer
title to the Buyer free from all third party rights or claims (including copyright
claims);
b)the Seller has complied with all requirements, legal or otherwise relating to
any export or import of the Lot and has notified us in writing of any failure
c)by third parties to comply with such requirements in the past; and
d)the Seller has notified us in writing of any material alterations to the Lot of
which the Seller is aware and of any concerns expressed by third parties in
relation to the ownership, condition or attribution of the Lot. If any of (a), (b)
and (c) above is incorrect, the Seller will indemnify us and/or the Buyer in full
on demand against all claims, costs or expenses incurred by us or the Buyer as
a result, whether arising in relation to the Lot or the proceeds of sale.
a)Accounting
After the sale, we shall require payment in full from the Buyer, including
payment of the Buyer’s premium. Provided this has occurred, we shall remit to
the Seller an amount equal to the Hammer Price less all charges due from the
Seller, 35 days after the date of the sale, unless we have received notice that
the Lot is a Forgery (as defined in Clause 1 of these Conditions of Business).
In the event of late payment by the Buyer we shall make such remittance to
the Seller within seven days of that payment by the Buyer. If for any reason we
make payment to the Seller of the amount due before payment by the Buyer,
we shall acquire complete ownership of and title in the Lot, save only that in
the event that we are obliged to accept the Lot back from the Buyer on the
basis that it is a Forgery, the Seller will refund to us the proceeds of sale paid
to the Seller.
Payment will be made in sterling unless the Seller instructs otherwise in
writing. If the Seller requires payment other than in sterling, we shall charge
the Seller for any currency costs incurred. Sale proceeds will be calculated
at the one month forward rate of exchange quoted to us by Coutts & Co.
prevailing 35 days after the date of the auction. Our certificate as to such rate
will be conclusive.
7. Sale Arrangements
a)We shall have complete discretion as to the way the Lot is described and
illustrated in the catalogue or any condition report; the place and manner
of sale; the decision as to which persons should be admitted to the auction,
and as to which bids should be accepted; whether expert advice should be
sought, and the combination or division of goods for sale.
b)Any estimate given, orally or in writing, is a matter of opinion only and is not
an assurance in relation to the price the Lot will eventually fetch.
c)The Seller may not withdraw the Lot from sale without our consent. However,
we reserve the right to withdraw the Lot from sale at any time if (i) we have
any doubt as to its attribution or authenticity or as to the accuracy of the
statements made in clause 6 (a), (b) or (c) above or (ii) there is any breach
of these Conditions of Business or (iii) we believe it would be improper to
include the Lot in the sale.
d)If either we or the Seller withdraw the Lot, we shall charge the Seller a fee
equal to 20% of the Reserve or, if no Reserve has been agreed at that time,
20% of the Insured Value, together with any applicable VAT and insurance and
other expenses.
8. Conduct of Sale
a)The Lot will be sold subject to the Reserve, which cannot be above the low
estimate printed in the catalogue unless the Reserve is agreed to in a currency
other than pounds sterling and the exchange rates fluctuate between
the time the Reserve is agreed and the day of the sale. In this case, unless
we agree otherwise, the Reserve shall be an amount equal to the pound
sterling equivalent based on the closing exchange rate on the business day
immediately preceding the sale. We shall in no circumstances be liable if bids
are not received at the level of the Reserve. We shall however be entitled to
sell the Lot below the Reserve. If we do so, we shall be obliged to account to
the Seller as if the Hammer Price was equal to the Reserve.
b)Non-Payment by the Buyer
If the Buyer fails to pay the full amount due within 35 days after the date
of sale, we shall be entitled to agree special terms on the Seller’s behalf for
payment, storage and insurance, and to take any steps we consider necessary
to collect the amount due from the Buyer. However, we shall not be obliged
either to remit the price due to the Seller ourselves, nor to take any legal
proceedings on the Seller’s behalf. We shall discuss with the Seller the
appropriate course of action to be taken to recover the purchase price from
the Buyer.
c)Forgeries
If within seven days of the date of the auction the Buyer satisfies us that the
Lot is a Forgery (as defined in Clause 1 of these Conditions of Business), then
(i) if the Buyer at that time has not yet paid the full amount due, we shall have
the right to cancel the sale and/or (ii) if we have at that time paid the Seller
the whole or part of the full amount due to the Seller, then the Seller must
refund to us, on demand, the total amount paid. In the latter case we shall
exercise a lien over any property of the Seller under our control as security for
the amount due
d)Unsold Lot
If any Lot is unsold, or is not included in a sale, or is withdrawn from sale
for any reason, it must be collected from us within 35 days after we send
the Seller a notice requiring the Seller to collect it. If any such Lot remains
uncollected for a period exceeding 35 days, a storage charge of £1 per item
per day will apply and an additional charge will be made for insurance. The
Seller will not be entitled to collect the Lot until all outstanding charges are
met. If any such Lot is not collected within 90 days after the date of the sale
or the date of the notice referred to above (whichever occurs first), it may
be disposed of by us as we see fit, which may involve its removal to a third
party warehouse at the Seller’s expense and its sale by public auction on such
terms as we consider appropriate, including those relating to estimates and
reserves. We shall then account to the Seller for the proceeds of sale, having
deducted all amounts due. If any Lot is bought in or otherwise unsold by
auction, we are authorised as the exclusive agent for the Seller for a period
219
June 27th 2012
of two months following the auction to sell such Lot privately for a price that
will result in a payment to the Seller of not less than the net amount – i.e. after
deduction of all charges due from the Seller – to which the Seller would have
been entitled had the Lot been sold at a price equal to the Reserve, or for
such lesser amount as we and the Seller shall agree. In such event the Seller’s
obligations to us with respect to such a Lot are the same as if it had been sold
at auction.
control for the sale, and we have the right, exercisable at our complete
discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or attendance at an auction.
b)Registration before bidding
Every prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and
provide identification before making a bid at auction. Prospective buyers
should be aware that we usually require buyers to undergo a credit check.
10. Photographs and Illustrations
We shall have the right (on a non-exclusive basis) to photograph, video or
otherwise produce an image of the Lot. All rights in such an image will belong to
us, and we shall have the right to use it in whatever way we see fit.
c)Bidding as Principal
When making a bid, prospective buyers will be accepting personal liability,
unless it has been agreed in writing, at the time of registration, that a bidder is
acting as agent on behalf of a third party acceptable to us.
11. Other Matters
VAT The Seller will give all relevant information about his VAT status and that of
the Lot to ensure that the correct information is printed in the catalogues. Once
printed, the information cannot be changed. If we incur any unforeseen cost or
expense as a result of the information being incorrect, the Seller will reimburse
to us on demand the full amount incurred.
d)Commission Bids
If a prospective buyer gives us instructions to bid on his behalf, by using
the form provided, we shall use reasonable efforts to do so, provided these
instructions are received not later than 24 hours before the sale. If we receive
commission bids on a particular Lot for identical amounts, and at auction
these bids are the highest bids for the Lot, it will be sold to the person whose
bid was received first. Commission bids are undertaken subject to other
commitments at the time of the sale, and the conduct of the sale may be
such that we are unable to bid as requested. Since this is undertaken as a free
service to prospective buyers on the terms stated, we cannot accept liability
for failure to make a commission bid. Prospective buyers should therefore
always attend personally if they wish to be certain of bidding.
C. Buyers
12. Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited as agent
As auctioneers, we act as agent for the Seller. Unless otherwise agreed sales of
goods at our auctions result in contracts made between the Seller, through our
agency, with the Buyer.
13. Before the Sale
a)Examination of goods
Prospective buyers are strongly advised to examine personally any goods in
which they are interested, before the auction takes place. Condition reports
are usually available on request. We provide no guarantee to the Buyer other
than in relation to Forgeries, as explained in clause 1 of these Conditions of
Business.
b)Catalogue descriptions
Statements by us in the catalogue or condition report, or made orally or in
writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size, medium,
attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimated selling price
of any Lot are merely statements of opinion, and are not to be relied on as
statements of definitive fact. Catalogue illustrations are for guidance only,
and should not be relied on either to determine the tone or colour of any
item or to reveal imperfections. Estimates of the selling price should not be
relied on as a statement that this price is either the price at which the Lot
will sell or its value for any other purpose. Many items are of an age or nature
which precludes their being in perfect condition and some descriptions in
the catalogue or given by way of condition report make reference to damage
and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance only and the
absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects
or restoration nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of
any others.
c)Buyers Responsibility
Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of
the goods and the matters referred to in the catalogue description.
e)Telephone Bids
If prospective buyers make arrangements with us not less than 24 hours
before the sale, we shall use reasonable efforts to contact the bidders to
enable them to participate in bidding by telephone, but in no circumstances
will we be liable to either the Seller or any prospective buyer as a result of
failure to do so.
f ) Currency Converter
At some auctions, a currency converter will be operated, based on the one
month forward rates of exchange quoted to us by Coutts and Co at opening
on the date of the auction. Bidding will however take place in sterling. The
currency converter is not always reliable, and errors may occur beyond our
control either in the accuracy of the Lot number displayed on the converter,
or the foreign currency equivalent of sterling bids. We shall not be liable to
the Buyer for any loss suffered as a result of the Buyer following the currency
converter rather than the sterling bidding.
g)Video images
At some auctions there will be a video screen. Mistakes may occur in
its operation, and we cannot be liable to the Buyer regarding either the
correspondence of the image to the Lot being sold or the quality of the image
as a reproduction of the original.
h)The auctioneer’s discretion
The auctioneer has the right at his absolute discretion to refuse any bid to
advance the bidding in such manner as he may decide to withdraw or divide
any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots and, in the case of error or dispute,
to put an item up for bidding again.
i) Successful bid
Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the striking of his hammer marks
the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale
between the Seller and the Buyer.
14. At the Sale
a)Refusal of admission
Our sales take place on our own premises or premises over which we have
220
j) Online Bidding
Bromptons Auctioneers offer an online bidding service via thesaleroom. com
for bidders who cannot attend the sale. In completing the bidder registration
on www.the-saleroom.com and providing your credit card details and unless
alternative arrangements are agreed with Bromptons Auctioneers you:
i. authorise Bromptons Auctioneers, if they so wish, to charge the credit
card given in part or full payment, including all fees, for items successfully
purchased in the auction via the-saleroom.com, and
ii. confirm that you are authorised to provide these credit card details to
Bromptons Auctioneers through www.the-saleroom.com and agree that
Bromptons Auctioneers are entitled to ship the goods to the card holder
name and card holder address provided in fulfilment of the sale. Please
note that any lots purchased via the-saleroom.com live auction service
will be subject to an additional 3% commission charge + VAT at the rate
imposed on the hammer price Live online bidding is available at www.thesaleroom.com/bromptons
f ) Packing and handling
We shall use all reasonable efforts to take care when handling and packing a
purchased Lot but remind the Buyer that after seven days or from the time of
collection the Lot is entirely at the Buyer’s risk.
g) Recommended packers and shippers
Our shipping department may arrange shipment as the Buyer’s agent.
Although we shall suggest carriers if specifically requested, we cannot accept
liability in this respect.
h)Remedies for non-payment or failure to collect purchases
If the Buyer fails to make payment within seven days, we shall be entitled to
exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies:
15. After the Sale
• to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 4% above Coutts & Co. base rate per
month on the full amount due to the extent it remains unpaid for more than
seven days after the date of the auction;
a)Buyer’s Premium
In addition to the Hammer Price, the Buyer must pay us the Buyer’s premium
at a rate of 20% of the Hammer Price.
• to set off against any amounts which we or any other associated company of
Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited may owe the Buyer in any other transaction
the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the Buyer;
b)Value Added Tax
Value Added Tax is always payable on the premium. It may also be payable on
the Hammer Price, if the Lot has been marked with a sign to that effect in the
catalogue. It may be refunded on proof of export from the European Union.
• to exercise a lien on any of the Buyer’s property which may be in our
possession for any purpose and, following 14 days’ notice to the Buyer of the
amount outstanding and remaining unpaid, arrange the sale of such property
and apply the proceeds in discharge of the amount outstanding to us;
c)Payment
The Buyer must provide us with his or her name and permanent address
and, if so requested, details of the bank from which payment will be made
and then pay the full amount due (comprising the Hammer Price, the Buyer’s
premium and any applicable value added tax) within seven days after the
date of the sale. This applies even if the Buyer wishes to export the lot and an
export licence is (or may be) required. The Buyer will not acquire title to the
Lot until all amounts due to us have been paid to us, even in circumstances
where we have released the Lot to the Buyer. Payment may be made by Visa
or Access and an additional charge will be made if not received within 7
working days of the sale date. Payments exceeding £5,000 can normally only
be made by the card holder in person whilst on our premises. Brompton’s
Auctioneers Limited is not able to notify successful bidders by telephone.
While Invoices are sent out by mail after the auction we do not accept
responsibility for notifying you of the result of your bid. Buyers are requested
to contact us by telephone or in person as soon as possible after the sale to
obtain details of the outcome of their bids to avoid incurring unnecessary
charges. Successful bidders will pay the price of the final bid plus premium
plus any applicable VAT.
• where several amounts are owed by the Buyer to us or any other associated
company of Brompton’s Auctioneers Limited in respect of different
transactions, to apply any amount paid to discharge any amount owed in
respect of any particular transaction, whether or not the Buyer so directs;
• to reject at any future auction any bids made by the Buyer or on his behalf or
obtain a deposit from the Buyer before accepting any bids. If the Buyer fails to
make payment within thirty-five days, we shall in addition be entitled:
• to issue proceedings on behalf of the Seller against the Buyer to recover
the full amount due, together with the costs of such proceedings on a full
indemnity basis and with interest, charged at 4% per annum above Coutts &
Co. Base Rate;
• to cancel the sale of the Lot or any other item sold to the Buyer at the same or
any other auction;
• to arrange a resale of the Lot, publicly or privately, and, if this results in a lower
price being obtained, claim the balance from the Buyer together with any
costs incurred in connection with the Buyer’s failure to make payment.
d)Collection of Purchases
Unless we specifically agree to the contrary, we shall retain items sold until
all amounts due to us, or to any other associated company of Brompton’s
Auctioneers Limited, have been paid in full. Items retained will be covered by
our insurance from the date of sale for a period of seven days or, if by then the
goods have been collected, to the time of collection. After seven days or from
the time of collection, whichever is the earlier, the Lot will be entirely at the
Buyer’s risk.
i) Failure to collect
Where purchases are not collected within seven days after the sale, whether
or not payment has been made, we shall arrange storage at the Buyer’s
expense, and only release the items purchased after payment has been made
in full of storage, removal, insurance and any other costs incurred, together
with payment of all other amounts due to us.
e)Notification
Invoices are sent out by mail after the sale day, but we do not accept
responsibility for notifying you of your bid. Bidders are requested to contact
us as soon as possible after the sale to check if they were successful, and to
avoid incurring charges for late payment.
j) Export Licence
Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the fact that the Buyer wishes to
apply for an export licence does not affect his obligation to make payment
within seven days nor our right to charge interest on late payment. If the
Buyer requests us to apply for an export licence on his behalf, we shall be
entitled to recover from him our disbursements and out of pocket expenses
in relation to such application, together with any relevant VAT. We will not
221
June 27th 2012
be obliged to refund any interest or other expenses incurred by the Buyer
where payment is made by the Buyer despite the fact that an export licence
is required.
16. Extent of Our Liability
We have an obligation to refund the Buyer in the circumstances set out in clause
17. However, neither the Seller nor we, nor any of our employees or agents, are
responsible for the correctness of any statement as to the authorship, origin,
date, age, attribution, genuineness or provenance of any Lot nor for any other
errors of description or for any faults or defects in any Lot. Neither the Seller,
ourselves, our employees or agents, give any guarantee in respect of any Lot.
Any warranty of any kind whatsoever is excluded by this clause.
17. Refund in the case of Forgery
A sale will be cancelled, and the amount paid refunded to the Buyer if a Lot
(other than a miscellaneous item not described in the catalogue) sold by us
proves to have been a Forgery. We shall not however be obliged to refund any
amounts if either
a)the catalogue description or saleroom notice at the auction date
corresponded to the generally accepted opinion of scholars or experts at that
time, or fairly indicated that there was a conflict of opinions, or
b)it can be demonstrated that the Lot is a Forgery only by means of either a
scientific process not generally accepted for use until after publication of the
catalogue or a process which at the date of the auction was unreasonably
expensive or impracticable or likely to have caused damage to the Lot.
Furthermore, the Buyer should note that this refund can be obtained only if
the following conditions are met:
i. the Buyer must notify us in writing, within seven days of the auction date,
that in his view the Lot concerned is a forgery;
ii. the Buyer must then return the item to us within fourteen days, in the same
condition as at the auction date; and
iii.as soon as possible following return of the Lot, the Buyer must produce
evidence satisfactory to us that the Lot is a Forgery and that he is
able to transfer good title to us, free from any third party claims. In no
circumstances shall we be required to pay the Buyer any more than the
amount paid by him for the Lot concerned and the Buyer shall have no
claim for interest. The benefit of this guarantee is not capable of being
transferred, and is solely for the benefit of the person to whom the original
invoice was made out by us in respect of the Lot when sold and who,
since the sale, has remained the owner of the Lot without disposing of any
interest in it to any third party. We shall be entitled to rely on any scientific
or other process to establish that the Lot is not a Forgery, whether or not
such process was used or in use at the date of the auction.
222
D. Conditions Applicable to both Buyers
and Sellers
18. Copyright
The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material relating to a Lot is
and shall remain at all times our property and shall not be used by the Buyer nor
anyone else without our prior written consent.
19. Notices
Any notice given under these Conditions is to be in writing and, if given by post,
will be taken to have been received by the addressee on the second working
day after posting or, if the addressee is overseas, on the fifth working day after
posting.
20. Severability
If any part of these Conditions of Business is found by any court to be invalid,
illegal or unenforceable, that part may be discounted and the rest of the
conditions shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent
permitted by law.
21. Law and Jurisdiction
These Conditions of Business are subject to English law, which shall apply to
their construction as well as to their effect. For our benefit, the Seller and the
Buyer submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

Sale Date: 2pm, 27th June 2012 / Sale No. 1021
I request Brompton Auctioneers, without legal obligations of any kind on it’s part, to bid on the following Lots up to the price given below. I understand that if my
bid is successful the Purchase Price payable will be the sum of the final bid and a Premium at the Rate of Premium as a percentage of the final bid (together with any
VAT chargeable on the final bid and the Premium) – see Conditions of Business. The Rate of Premium is 20% of the Hammer Price of each lot; VAT is chargeable on
the purchase price of daggered (†) and (**) lots at the standard rate (currently 20%), and on lots marked (*) at the reduced rate (currently 5% on the hammer and
20% on the Premium). All bids shall be treated as offers made on the Conditions of Business printed in the catalogue. I also understand that Brompton’s provides the
service of executing bids on behalf of clients for the convenience of clients and that Brompton’s will not be held responsible for failing to execute bids. If identical
commission bids are received for the same Lot, the commission bid received first by Brompton’s will take precedence. Bids are not accepted via e-mails.
