On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial interest in the outcome of the sale of certain lots consigned for sale. This will usually be where it has guaranteed to the Seller that whatever the outcome of the auction, the Seller will receive a minimum sale price for the work. This is known as a minimum price guarantee. This is a lot where Christie’s holds a direct financial guarantee interest.
Please note this lot is the property of an estate
The condition of lots can vary widely and the nature of the lots sold means that they are unlikely to be in a perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.
This tray-on-stand is in quite good decorative condition overall. There are the inevitable minor knocks, chips, losses, scratches and abrasions overall consistent with age and use. There is minor craqelure to the lacquer surface. The lacquer has possibly been refreshed in places. As stated in the cataloguing the stand is later. Two legs with minor fractures to the top section. Otherwise, presents well.
