Catalogue Guarantee

Glass & Lighting

  • All catalogue descriptions are guaranteed to be accurate in the matter of authenticity, condition and measurements unless otherwise noted in the catalogue description. Measurements are guaranteed to be accurate to within one inch.
  • Due to the high number of absentee bids that we execute, we are very meticulous in our description of the condition of each piece. Many of the minor flaws that we note are perfectly acceptable and do not detract from the item's desirability or value; however we do not consider light wear, small manufacturing flaws, glass impurities, or lightly tinted glass to be notable flaws.
  • If you are a bidder who demands flawlessness, it is recommended that you examine the item(s) in person, or have a trusted representative inspect the item(s) on your behalf.
  • Lamps are measured to the top of the collar and are without burners and chimneys unless otherwise noted.

Antiques, Americana & Decorative Arts

  • All catalogue descriptions are believed to be accurate in the matter of authenticity and condition, but ultimately all lots are sold "as is". Antiques, by their very nature, will exhibit wear, minor losses and breaks, and small repairs commensurate with age. We only note condition issues that in our opinion significantly affect the integrity of the item. Returns will only be considered for items found to be fake/reproduction and/or have significant damage/restoration not noted in the catalogue description.
  • If you are a bidder who demands flawlessness, it is recommended that you examine the item(s) in person, or have a trusted representative inspect the item(s) on your behalf.
  • All measurements are approximate. Please contact us if you require exact measurements.
  • All Oriental rugs are sold strictly "as is" with no guarantees as to age, origin or condition. Absolutely no refunds will be considered on Oriental rugs.
  • Fine jewelry is guaranteed only regarding gold content and authenticity of diamonds. Authenticity of other stones and grades of any stones are not guaranteed.

  • All requests for additional information will be accepted until 3:00 pm ET the day before the auction. Call 540.434.3939, ext. 0 or email info@jeffreysevans.com.
  • The auctioneer reserves the right to make verbal corrections and provide additional information from the auction block at the time of sale.
