Dear customers,
We kindly advise our clients that temporarily we do not accept wire transfers from the Russian Federation.
Due to Council Regulation (EU) 2022/428, the delivery of lots to the Russian Federation is temporarily suspended.
We closely monitor the situation and will keep you updated about any further developments.
EXPORT of PURCHASES (from General terms and conditions)
16.1. In view of the Customs Union existing between France and Monaco, any exports outside the Principality of Monaco are subject to the rules and regulations applicable in France.
16.2. Depending on the export destination and on their nature, certain lots may require an export licence and/or a certificate in order to be released to the buyer, which the buyer must obtain from the competent authorities.
16.3. Any lot coming from the Customs Union or benefiting from a temporary importation, if it remains in the Customs Union, may be removed upon presentation of a proof of payment of the Purchase Price.
16.3.1. If the Buyer intends to export the Lot outside of the Customs Union, it will be up to him to perform all the necessary procedures and formalities required by the applicable law.

Please be advised that after the fall of the auctioneer's hammer, the buyer is fully responsible for his lots, including the shipment and the execution of all necessary procedures and formalities required by the laws in force (both in Monaco/France and in the country of destination). The packaging is carried out entirely at the buyer’s risk.

Please note that the buyer is responsible for checking and fulfilling all conditions for the transportation of the acquired lots to the final destination, including but not limited to checking the import status of the lots, and the applicable regulations for importation at the destination.

Certain lots require an export license and/or a certificate in order to be released to the buyer, depending on the export destination and the lot’s category (see reference table Tableau comparatif des définitions de biens culturels UE-FR for cultural goods), which will need to be requested by the buyer to the concerned authorities.

Further, for certain lots painting and manuscripts, customs formalities might be required.

We recommend to confirm the above with your transportation company.
