Whilst we make certain observations on the lot, which are intended to be as helpful as possible, references in the condition report to damage or restoration are for guidance. 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. The condition report is an expression of opinion only and must not be treated as a statement of fact. Please ensure that condition report requests are submitted before 12 noon on Tuesday 13th April 2021 as we cannot guarantee that they will be dealt with after this time. 5. Absentee Bids We are happy to execute absentee or written bids for bidders who are unable to bid online themselves and can also arrange for bidding to be conducted by telephone. However, these services are subject to special conditions (see conditions of sale in this catalogue). All arrangements for absentee and telephone bidding must be made before 5pm on the day prior to sale. Bidding by telephone may be booked on all lots. Early booking is advisable as availability of lines cannot be guaranteed. **Please note that once online bids are placed these bids may not be cancelled or retracted ** 6. LOTS MADE OF / CONTAINING ANTIQUE IVORY AND/ OR CORAL Bidders should be advised that importation regulations of several countries, including the US, prohibits the importation of ivory and that of coral, or any goods containing same. Therefore Adams advises prospective purchasers who intend to ship lots containing either ivory or coral to another country to familiarise themselves with the relevant importation regulations prior to bidding. Adams will not be responsi- ble for shipping items herein and the onus will be on the buyer to organise shipping at their own behest.
