You have agreed to be bound by the Conditions of Sale and if your bid is successful, you are legally obliged to pay for the lot you have won. The purchase price for a successful bid will be the sum of your final bid plus a buyer’s premium, any applicable taxes and any artist resale royalty, exclusive of shipping-related expenses.
A Christie's specialist may contact you to discuss this lot or to notify you if the condition changes prior to the sale.
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.
- Overall condition good, although there are areas of solder across reverse - both to attach the tiara to the frame and areas of repair (including attaching the left hand tiara section to the central pear-shaped motif - which has now detached, as well as from one of the vertical supports - solder still in place on the other two supports and therefore tiara remains secure) - Measurement of diamond section only 16.8 cm, height at centre 2.0 cm (3.0 cm if measuring from base of tiara frame) - Diamonds: approximately total weight 13.00-15.00 carats, assessed to be J-L colour, VS-I1 clarity
