NOTICE FOR ENTITY BIDDERS
If you are bidding on behalf of an entity and the entity already has a MyChristie’s account, the entity’s name will need to be entered as part of the sale registration process. If the entity does not already have a MyChristie’s account, you will need to contact Christie’s Client Service center at (212) 636-2002. In either situation, Christie’s may require the entity to provide certain documents or meet certain qualifications as set forth below. If you registered as an entity bidder, your entity will need to pay for any purchases via a credit card issued to the entity account and not a personal account. Christie’s is not able to honor any reseller’s certificates through the online-only auction process for this sale and cannot grant any exemption upon check-out for applicable sales tax. Successful entity bidders will be charged sales tax, if applicable, as part of the check-out process. Buyers claiming exemption and a refund must provide Christie’s with the appropriate valid and up-to-date documentation and Christie’s will facilitate the process of a refund if possible.
CHRISTIE’S INTEREST IN PROPERTY CONSIGNED FOR AUCTION
Where Christie’s has a direct financial interest in lots consigned for sale, which may include guaranteeing a minimum price or making an advance to the seller that is secured solely by consigned property, the lot description for such lot will include language indicating such interest. The language will apply both in cases where Christie's holds the financial interest on its own and in cases where Christie's has financed all or part of such interest through third parties.
PROPERTY INCORPORATING MATERIALS FROM ENDANGERED AND OTHER PROTECTED SPECIES
Property made of or incorporating (irrespective of percentage) endangered and other protected species of wildlife are marked with the symbol ~ in the lot description (or are identified in the lot description with language indicating as such). It is the client’s responsibility to determine and satisfy the requirements of any applicable laws or regulations applying to the export or import of property containing endangered and other protected wildlife material. The inability of a client to export or import property containing endangered and other protected wildlife material is not a basis for cancellation or rescission of the sale. Lots containing potentially regulated wildlife material are marked as a convenience to our clients, but Christie’s does not accept liability for errors or for failing to mark lots containing protected or regulated species.

“Truman Capote discovered Studio 54 for the first time … as a dare Andy Warhol had brought him to Studio wearing only his silk bathrobe and embroidered slippers.” (B. Miller, Fabulous! A Photographic Diary of Studio 54, New York, 1998, p. 80)
