The condition reports for the lots offered by Santa Fe Art Auction (SFAA) are done as a courtesy and convenience for potential buyers.  The reports are not intended to nor do they substitute for physical examination by a buyer or the buyer’s advisors.  The condition reports are prepared by SFAA staff members who are not art conservators or restorers, nor do they possess the qualifications needed for comprehensive evaluation.  Each condition report is an opinion of the staff member and should not be treated as a statement of fact. The absence of a condition report does not imply anything as to the condition of a particular lot.  Buyers are reminded that the limited warranties are set forth in the Terms and Conditions of Sale and do not extend to condition.  Each lot is sold as-is.
