It is impossible to return an artwork bought at auction; it can only be set for an auction again. “Caveat emptor”, or “Let the buyer beware”, is the principle every auction house holds to, which reminds the bidders to personally study the information of an artwork they want to purchase or to turn to an art consultant before making a deal.
Unrestored objects are frequently set for auction. Sometimes, however, an artwork is so valuable, that many bidders are ready to purchase them in any condition. If you decided to buy an unrestored sculpture, painting or a vase and want to have its former glamour brought back, you can address to professional restorers. In particular, you can use the restoration services of our Auction House.
Both residents and non-residents of the Russian Federation can buy artworks at auctions and from galleries. The shipment of the works of art abroad, however, is governed by law. Objects of cultural heritage can be taken abroad after their owner has received permission from the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and presented this document at the customs. In order to obtain such permission, you can turn to lawyers, who specialize in work with items of cultural value.
If you want to get an independent expert examination of the purchased item, we will be glad to help you arrange it. You will choose an expert and, at our request, they will provide you with an official opinion concerning the authorship and the time when the work of art was created.
