As part of our auction activities, our auction house could collect personal data concerning the seller and the buyer. They have the right to access, rectify and object to their personal data by contacting our auction house directly. Our OVV may use this personal data in order to meet its legal obligations, and, unless opposed by the persons concerned, for the purposes of its activity (commercial and marketing operations). These data may also be communicated to the competent authorities. These general conditions of sale and everything pertaining to them are governed exclusively by French law. Buyers and their representatives accept that any legal action will be taken within the jurisdiction of French courts (Paris). The various provisions contained in these general conditions of sale are independent of each other. If any one of them is declared invalid, there is no effect on the validity of the others. Participating in this auction implies the agreement with all the conditions set out below by all buyers and their representatives. Payment is due immediately at the end of the sale, payable in euros. A currency conversion system may be provided during the sale. The corresponding foreign currency value provided is merely informative. DEFINITIONS AND GUARANTEES Descriptions appearing in the catalogue are provided by MILLON and the Sale Experts and are subject to corrections, notifications and declarations made at the moment the lot is presented and noted in the record of the sale. Dimensions, colours in reproductions and information on the condition of an object are given for information purposes only. All information relating to incidents, accidents, restoration and conservation measures relating to a lot is given to facilitate inspection by the potential buyer and remains completely open to their interpretation. This means that all lots are sold as seen at the moment the hammer falls, including the possible faults and imperfections. An exhibition before the sale is made providing the potential buyers the opportunity to examine the presented lots. Therefore, no claims will be accepted after the hammer has fallen. For lots appearing in the sale catalogue which the lower estimated price is over 2,000 euros, a condition report of the preservation status will be issued free of charge upon request. The information contained at this rapport is merely informative and MILLON and the Sale Experts can in no way be held liable for it. In the case of a dispute at the sale, i.e. two or more buyers have simultaneously made an identical bid for the same lot, either aloud or by signal, and both claim the lot at the same time when the hammer falls, the lot will be re-submitted for auction at the price offered by the bidders and everyone at the room will be permitted to bid once again. - According to article L321-17 of the French Commercial Code, the statute of limitations of any civil liability actions brought in connection with voluntary sales are limited to five years from the date of the auction. - Only French law is applicable to this sale. Only the French courts are competent to hear any dispute relating to this sale. The lots marked with ° include elements of elephant ivory and its sale is possible because the ivory is dated prior to 3/3/1947. The buyer who wishes to export the object outside the EU will have to obtain from the DRIEE an export permit on their own. This is the buyer’s responsibility. TELEPHONE BIDDING The telephone bids are a free service provided by MILLON. In this regard, our company accepts no liability for a break in the telephone connection, a failure to connect or a delayed connection. Although MILLON accepts telephone bidding requests until the end of the pre-sale exhibition, it cannot be held liable for mistakes or omissions related to telephone bidding orders. We inform our customers that telephone conversations during telephone auctions at the Hotel Drouot are likely to be recorded. Irrevocable bid : A party can provide Millon with an irrevocable bid, which is a definitive, firm, irrevocable and unconditioned instruction to execute this party’s bid during the auction up to a provided amount, regardless of the existence of other bids. The irrevocable bidder, who may bid in excess of the irrevocable bid, will be compensated based on the final hammer price in the event he or she is not the successful bidder. If the irrevocable bid is not secured until after the printing of the auction catalogue, a pre-sale or pre-lot announcement will be made indicating that there is an irrevocable bid on the lot, on other cases i twill be indicated in the catalogue entry of the lot. If the irrevocable bidder is advising anyone with respect to the lot, Sotheby’s requires the irrevocable bidder to disclose his or her financial interest in the lot. If an agent is advising you or bidding on your behalf with respect to a lot identified as being subject to an irrevocable bid, you should request that the agent disclose whether or not he or she has a financial interest in the lot (cv.Art 313-6 French Penal Code). Any person who is about to bid on the work and who has a direct or indirect, permanent or occasional community of interest with the irrevocable bidder, and who would enter into a financial agreement that could hinder the auction, would be exposed to penal sanctions as stated in Art.313-6 of the French Penal Code : "The fact, in a public auction, of excluding a bidder or limiting bids or tenders by means of gifts, promises, agreements or any other fraudulent means, is punishable by six months' imprisonment and a fine of 22,500 euros. The same penalties shall apply to the acceptance of such gifts or promises. The same penalties shall apply to: 1° The fact, in a public auction, of hindering or disturbing the freedom of bids or tenders, by violence, assault or threats; 2° Proceeding or participating, after a public auction, in a re-auction without the assistance of the competent ministerial officer or sworn goods broker or of a declared operator of voluntary sales of furniture by public auction. Attempts to commit the offences provided for in this article shall be punishable by the same penalties”. CAUTION MILLION reserves the right to ask for a deposit from bidders at the time of registration. This deposit will be automatically deducted in the absence of payment by the winning bidder within 15 days after the sale (invoice date). LIVE BIDDING BY ELECTRONIC PLATFORMS: Millon cannot be held responsible for the interruption or any other malfunction of any Live service during the sale that could inhibit a buyer from bidding via any electronic platform offering the Live service. The interruption of a Live auction service during the sale is not necessarily justification for the auctioneer to stop the auction. BIDDING LEVELS Bidding increments are left to the discretion of the auctioneer in charge of the sale. If the amount of the bids proposed - either physically, by telephone, by firm purchase order, live or by "secret order" deposited on partner relay platforms - is deemed insufficient, inconsistent with the amount of the previous bid or likely to disrupt the proper conduct, fairness and pace of the sale, the auctioneer may decide not to take them into account.

MILLON cannot be held responsible for the French State's pre-emption decisions.

Subject to the decision of the authorised auctioneer and provided that the final bid is greater than or equal to the reserve price, the last bidder shall become the purchaser, the hammer blow and the pronouncement of the word "sold" shall materialise the acceptance of the last bid and the formation of the contract of sale between the seller and the purchaser.
