Can I reserve a Work online?
The orders contained in your shopping cart are not reserved. The sales contract will be made only with the first Buyer. It is therefore not possible to reserve a Work online.

Can I pick up my order at the Young Collectors Gallery in Geneva?
The Buyer may decide to pick-up his/her order at the Young Collectors gallery, in Geneva. In this case, the Buyer will not be charged a delivery fee.
The Seller notifies the Buyer by email of the availability of the Work(s) at the gallery. The Buyer shall therefore collect the Work(s) at the gallery within 15 days from receipt of the email.
At the collection of the Work(s), the Seller supplies the Buyer with the order, the invoice and the certificate(s) of authenticity, after verification of the Buyer’s identity.
Does Young Collectors provide certificates of authenticity?
Young Collectors benefits from the authentication procedures of Phoenix Ancient Art S.A.
Phoenix Ancient Art S.A. has developed a rigorous traceability procedure for all of the Works sold, which is indispensable in the industry of the antiquities trade. Phoenix Ancient Art S.A. provides the same authentication procedures for the Works offered for sale on the Young Collectors website. All analysis, historic recognition, and tests required to establish the authenticity of the Works are conducted by Phoenix Ancient Art S.A., to ensure that each Work is authentic.
Young Collectors is therefore able to offer an excellent warranty. A certificate of authenticity will accompany each purchased Work.
Do you take responsibility for sale taxes and import duties/licenses?
The potential Buyers are informed that some countries may prohibit or restrict the importation of certain goods, especially antiquities, or may apply for a permit for their importation. It is the Buyer’s obligation to check such regulations and to take the necessary steps for the licenses and/or permits required to import the Work(s) he/she wishes to purchase.
In cases in which customs duties, taxes or import duties would be due, they would be the sole responsibility of the Buyer. They are payable by the Buyer and come within his/her entire responsibility, both in terms of declaratory procedure and payments.
Do you ship internationally?
During the validation process of the order, the Buyer can opt for his/her order to be delivered to the address of his/her choice, in Switzerland or abroad (to be notified on the Site during the check-out process). The Work will be delivered to the complete shipping address provided by the Buyer when the purchase was made. The Seller will ship the Work via Swiss Post. The Buyer previously accepted the delivery costs at the moment of the order validation. They are included in the total purchase price.
What payment methods and credit/debit cards do you accept?
The orders placed on the Site may be paid solely by credit card through PayPal. We accept the following credit cards: American Express, Visa or MasterCard, Discover and Union Pay.
The Buyer’s card will be debited of the price of the Work he/she has purchased, together with the delivery charges.
How to order on our website?
The Works are displayed on the Site of the Seller with a description and a picture (or pictures) enabling the Buyer to know the main features and price of the Works.
The Buyer selects the Work(s) he/she wishes to acquire. Buyer decides whether he/she wants the order to be delivered to the address of his/her choice or wishes to pick it up at the Young Collectors gallery. The Buyer selects the type of credit card he/she prefers for the payment via PayPal and immediately proceeds with payment. After confirming his/her selection, the Buyer reviews and agrees to these Sale Terms. Once the order has been validated by Young Collectors, an e-mail will be sent to the Buyer to confirm that the order has been taken into account. In cases in which there would be multiple concurrent orders for the same Work, the sales contract will be made only with the first Buyer. In this hypothesis, the other Buyer(s) will be informed of the invalidation of the transaction and his/her (their) account will be re-credited the amount of the payment.
