We are trading unique items. Despite our efforts to keep our stock up-to-date it is possible that an ordered item is not available any longer. During business hours, all purchased items will be shipped within two weeks after order placement and receiving payment. In case export permits are required, the time until shipment can only be determined individually. We will contact you as soon as possible in such a case. All deliveries will be made after receiving the full payment in advance. Time appointments and limits are only binding if confirmed in writing by us. Delays due to forces majeure are not within our legal responsibility. We are only liable for delays due to gross negligence on our part.


You may withdraw from a purchase and return the subject items in their original state within 30 days after acquisition. All items have to be returned by postal service at the expense of the buyer and adequately insured. The buyer is liable for any damages due to insufficient packaging and insurance. Please consult with us before shipping anything to us.

Reservation of proprietary rights

All items remain the property of Alte Roemer Gallery until full payment has been received.


All documents, especially the invoice, may be transferred electronically or on paper.

Warranty, liability and guarantee of authenticity

The description and classification of the items in our catalogues and online gallery are based on published findings or generally available information. They have been authored to the best of knowledge and conscience. For all purchased and delivered items, Alte Roemer Gallery is granting a guarantee on authenticity, determined aged and provenance for an unlimited period of time. Well-reasoned returns will be investigated and confirmed within three months after receipt. The full purchase price will then be refunded for the returned items in their original state. The state of preservation described for the items in our catalogues and online gallery is generally as to be expected for their age. It is not to be compared with recently manufactured goods.

Online dispute resolution

If differences of opinion should arise based on contractual relations with our customers, it is our highest priority to settle them quickly by mutual agreement.

In the event that the disagreement can not be settled by mutual agreement, we would like to inform you about the responsible consumer conciliation body. The European Commission is providing a platform for out-of-court online dispute resolution (ODR platform), available at­consumers/odr. You will find our e-mail address in our imprint. We would like to point out that we are not legally required to participate in the dispute resolution process. The decision as to whether we are willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure will be made on a case-by-case basis. A list of the recognized dispute resolution bodies incl. contact details can be found at­consumers/odr/­main/index.cfm?event­
