CONDITIONS OF SALE

AUCTION HOUSE AS AGENT

Except as otherwise stated, John Moran Auctioneers (Moran’s) acts as agent for the seller. The contract for the sale of the property is therefore made between

the seller and the buyer.

BEFORE THE AUCTION

(a) Public Preview: All property is available for inspection by public preview during the day of auction. In many cases, particular lots can be examined in

advance by private appointment. Prospective buyers are strongly encouraged to personally examine any property in which they are interested.

(b) Buyer’s Responsibility: Buyers are responsible for determining to their own satisfaction the true nature and condition of any lot prior to bidding. Though buyers

are not legally required to inspect lots prior to purchase, failure to do so may constitute a waiver of complaint that an item was not delivered in a condition equal

to the existent condition at the auction.

(c) Property Sold ‘As Is’: Neither Moran’s nor the seller provides any guarantee in relation to the nature of the property, or to any errors or omissions in the

catalogue or supplemental material apart from the Limited Warranty stated below. Condition reports are offered as a courtesy and are typically published in

Moran’s catalogue or can be made available upon request. The absence of a condition report does not imply than an item is free from defects or restoration, nor

does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of others.

AT THE AUCTION

(a) Admission: The auction is open to the public, though Moran’s reserves the right to refuse admission or participation to anyone at any time. The auctioneer

may be recorded (visually, aurally or otherwise) and all participants consent to such recording.

(b) Buyer Registration: Prospective buyers must register with Moran’s before bidding. Moran’s may require identification and financial references in advance of

buyer eligibility. Registered bidders accept personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer’s premium plus all applicable charges, unless Moran’s

agrees in advance that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Moran’s. In such case, Moran’s will look to the third party

for payment.

(c) Bidding Guidelines: Bidding, whether in person, by agent, absentee bid, telephone, or internet, constitutes a bidder’s acceptance of these conditions. The

highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auctioneer retains the absolute right to reject any bid, to withdraw, pass or divide any lots,

to combine multiple lots, to advance the bidding at his or her absolute discretion and (in the case of error or dispute, whether during or after the sale) to determine

the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, cancel the sale or to re-offer and sell the lot in question. Under no circumstances are the consignors‚ or agents

acting on their behalf, permitted to bid on their consignment. In the event of any dispute after the auction Moran’s sale record shall be conclusive.

(d) Absentee, Telephone and Internet Bidding: Moran’s offers absentee, telephone and internet bidding as a convenience to clients and does not accept liability

for errors or failures to execute such bids. Absentee and telephone bids must be recognized by Moran’s prior to auction day. When identical absentee bids are

submitted that become the highest bids at the auction, the bid first received by Moran’s shall be accepted as the winning bid. Telephone bidders are encouraged

to leave minimum bids in case of technical failure. Internet bidders are subject to an additional buyer’s premium, as noted below.

(e) Reserves: Unless indicated otherwise, lots may be offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold.

The reserve for any lot shall not exceed its published estimate. Moran’s shall act to protect the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer, who may open bidding

on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on the seller’s behalf. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the reserve amount, either by

placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. Lots without reserves are typically opened for bidding at 50% of their low estimate. In the

absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer may proceed backwards at his discretion or deem the lot unsold if a bid is not recognized.

AFTER THE AUCTION

(a) Payment and Title Transfer: The buyer agrees to pay the sum of the hammer price plus a premium of 20% (of the hammer price) when paying by check, cash

or wire transfer, or 22.5% if paying by credit card, together with any applicable tax. Buyers bidding via the internet agree to pay a total premium of 22.5% when

paying by check, cash or wire transfer, or 25% if paying by credit card (both include 3% online transaction fee). Buyers are strongly encouraged to provide full

payment at the auction. Payment must be received by Moran’s within the five business days immediately following the auction. The buyer shall not acquire title

or take possession of the lot until all amounts (including the hammer price, premium and applicable taxes) due to Moran’s have been paid in full.

(b) Collection: Buyers are strongly encouraged to collect purchased items from the sale site at the time of the auction. Packing material and labor are provided

free of charge at the sale site during the auction. The packing of purchased lots at the auction is undertaken by Moran’s solely as a convenience to customers.

Moran’s is not liable for damage to glass or frames, except as a result of negligence on Moran’s part, regardless of cause in connection with this courtesy

service.

(c) Storage: Following the auction, uncollected lots shall be relocated to and stored in Moran’s warehouse. Moran’s shall retain possession of all purchases

until full payment has been received from the buyer. Lots remaining uncollected after the fifth business day following the sale, regardless of payment status, are

subject to a per-lot daily storage charge of $10.00. In addition to other remedies available by law, Moran’s reserves the right to impose upon delinquent buyers a

separate 1% monthly charge (of the purchase price, or the maximum permitted by law) commencing on the sixth business day after the sale date.

(d) Shipping: Buyers are responsible for arranging their own shipping estimates and deliveries. Moran’s in our discretion and as a courtesy to buyers, can

arrange to have purchased lots packed, insured and forwarded by a third party shipper at the request, expense and risk of the buyer. Moran’s assumes no

responsibility for acts or omissions in such packing or shipping by other packers or carriers, even if recommended by Moran’s. Nor does Moran’s assume any

responsibility for any damage to picture frames or to the glass therein. In circumstances where Moran’s arranges for such third party services, Moran’s may

apply an administration charge of 10% of that service fee.

iii


(e) All Sales Final: Notwithstanding other terms mentioned herein, refunds shall be given at Moran’s sole discretion. Refunds requested on the grounds

of authenticity must be made within 10 days of the auction and accompanied by a supporting written statement from a recognized authority (defined

as a person who has authored, edited, or substantially contributed to a monograph on the artist, a person who has curated, organized or substantially

contributed to a solo exhibition on the artist, a person who has represented the artist’s estate or someone who represented or worked closely with the artist

while they were alive and, in any of the above instances physically handled works of the period, medium and subject matter in question during the course of

their duties) stating that the object sold is incorrect or not the work of the artist. Dealers, appraisers and representatives of other auction firms do not qualify

as authenticators of individual artists unless they have had such specific involvement with that artist’s work, as specified above, in addition to their daily

duties. Refunded lots must be returned to Moran’s in the same condition as when sold. Moran’s does not grant extensions to refund considerations based

upon authenticity due to shipping delays. There are no exceptions to this refund policy.

LIABILITY AND LIMITED WARRANTY

(a) Liability: The buyer expressly agrees that (i) neither Moran’s nor the seller shall be liable, in whole or in part, for any special, indirect or consequential

damages, including, without limitation, loss of profits and (ii) the buyer’s damages, if any, are limited exclusively to the original purchase price paid for the lot.

(b) Limited Warranty: All property is sold as is. Neither Moran’s nor the consignor or our associates make any representation, express or implied warranty

(including merchantability and fitness) or guarantee in condition, size, provenance, medium, signature, inscription, exhibition history, importance, rarity,

country of origin, age, genuineness, historical relevance, monetary or other value, framing or lack thereof, mounting, conservation, coloring, palette,

inscription, edition, style, label or other descriptor. No statement in the catalogue, brochures, website, bill of sale or invoice, any supplementary material, or

statements by any Moran’s employee shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an assumption of liability.

(c) Descriptions: No warranty, whether express or implied, is made with respect to any description contained in this auction or any second opinion. Any

description of the items or second opinion is for the courtesy of identifying the items for those Bidders who do not have the opportunity to view the lots in

person, and no description of items has been made part of the basis of the transaction or has created any express warranty that the goods would conform

to any description made by the Auctioneer. Color variations can be expected in any electronic or printed imaging, and are not grounds for the return of any

lot.

(d) Estimates: All estimates provided are carefully considered opinions of Moran’s specialists, and are merely suggested guidelines for interested buyers.

Buyers must be aware that all property sold is subject to fluctuating values depending on the subjective interests of collectors and a wide variety of other

uncontrollable factors. The lots auctioned may sell at prices above, within, or below estimate.

(e) Notices, Demands and Refunds: Any demands for refunds, problems with the lot(s) sold or notices of any kind concerning the auction shall be in writing

and addressed to John Moran Auctioneers, Inc, 735 West Woodbury Road, Altadena, California 91001.

ADDITIONAL MATTERS

(a) Copyright: The copyright on all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for Moran’s for this auction is and shall remain at all times

the property of Moran’s. Moran’s and the seller make no representation or warranty that the buyer will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to a

purchased lot.

(b) Buyer’s Breach of Conditions: If a buyer fails to comply with any of these conditions, Moran’s may, in addition to asserting all remedies available by

law, including the right to hold that buyer liable for the purchase price, (i) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages any payment made by the

buyer, (ii) resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately upon notice to the buyer, or (iii) take such other action as we deem necessary or

appropriate. If Moran’s resells the property, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency between the original sale price and

any subsequent mitigation sale, including warehousing, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorney’s fees, commissions, incidental damages and all

other charges due hereunder. In the event that such buyer pays a portion of the purchase price for any property, Moran’s shall apply the payment received

to such property that Moran’s in our sole discretion, deems appropriate. Moran’s shall have the benefit of all rights of a secured party under the Uniform

Commercial Code adopted in the State of California.

(c) Severability: Should any of these conditions be deemed unenforceable, invalid or illegal in any court having jurisdiction, that part shall be discounted and

shall have no effect on the enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein, which shall remain valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

(d) Jurisdiction: The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these conditions and the conduct of the auction shall be governed and interpreted

by the laws of the State of California. By bidding, whether in person or by agent, by absentee bid, telephone, internet or other means, the buyer shall be

deemed to have consented to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the state of California or, if applicable, the federal courts sitting in this state. Further,

the buyer agrees that the venue for any action arising out of the failure to abide by these conditions, or any conduct related to or arising out of the auction,

shall be the Los Angeles Superior Court, Pasadena Branch located at 300 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, California 91101 or the Federal Court Central District

located at 312 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, California, 90012-4793.

well and a fitted interior with a central door flanked by faux-book drawers

apron, on waisted bun feet, 99.5’’ H x 42.5’’ W x 24.5’’ D, est:$50,000/70,000

Note: Lacquer, a varnish that dries by solvent evaporation to a hardened, durable

surface, is recorded as being used in China as far back as the Zhou Dynasty (1046

– 256 B.C.E.). The cabinet offered here is a fine example of an ancient Chinese

decorative technique combined with a Western form.

Beginning with Western traders in the 16th century, Chinese lacquerware has been

prized for its luminous qualities and intricately executed decoration. During the 17th

and 18th centuries the influence of Western cultures and the importation of designs

to such production centers as Nanking and Canton resulted in hybrid models of

everything from tea caddies to desks. While smaller objects such as boxes and

tables were produced in relatively large quantities, the time and materials required

to fabricate a piece of such scale and complexity as the present bureau cabinet

necessarily make it quite a rare example. Due to the cost of manufacturing, most of

the larger pieces were made on commission only.

The rage for the ‘Oriental’ influence inspired imitation techniques in the West such

as ‘Japanning’ in England and ‘Lacca’ in Italy. Renowned English cabinet makers

like Thomas Chippendale, Giles Grendy and William and John Linnell incorporated

Chinese-inspired forms and decoration in their designs, like the ‘Chinese’ bed from

Badminton House, executed by the Linnells in 1754.

2010, lot 20 ($104,500). Another example, made for the Danish market, sold Christie’s,

Note: Antonio Pineda was born in Taxco, Mexico to an old Taxquenian family in 1919.

At the age of 14 he apprenticed with William Spratling. After eight years in Spratling’s

studio, and becoming a master silversmith in his own right, Pineda opened his own

workshop. His international reputation was established when his work was exhibited

along side that of Georg Jensen and other renowned modernist silversmiths at the

1944 exhibition of the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.

Pineda’s entire body of work displayed at that seminal show was purchased by

Gump’s, which established a long standing relationship between Pineda and the highend

retailer. In 1953 he won the Presidential Prize at the first National Silver Fair and

by 1956 his operation employed over 160 people. Pineda founded the Silver Museum

in Taxco in 1988.

gemstones in unusual and creative settings. Utilitarian pieces such as hollowware

1104 A Native American Helen Cordero Cochiti pottery storyteller figure

Last quarter 20th century, the underside signed ‘’Helen Cordero (1915 - 1994) / Cochiti

N. Mexico’’, depicting a seated male elder, with legs extended, hands on his lap,

the eyes closed and mouth open in recitation, three small children perched on his

knees, two on his shoulders and one clings to his back, 9.5’’ H x 6.25’’ W x 9.25’’ D,

est:$3000/5000

Note: Helen Cordero began a new tradition in Native American Pueblo pottery with

the creation of her series of figures. Dissatisfied with her work fashioning pottery

vessels, in 1964 she turned her talents toward creating storyteller figures in honor

of her grandfather, a renowned storyteller at the Pueblo, as well as other figurative

pieces.

While most of Cordero’s storyteller figures share a similar expression- eyes closed,

mouth open, head tilted upward, the nature of the story can be discerned by the

gestures of the children that surround the storyteller. In this example, the children

hide their eyes, or clasp their hands or each other, leading the viewer to understand

that the story being recounted is a scary one.

A very similar figure sold Bonham’s, San Francisco, 4 December 2006, lot 5081

1135 A pair of Walter Lamb verdigris bronze patio chairs

back and seat, on a squared frame base with central stretcher, 2 pcs, 32.25’’ H x 19’’

W x 22’’ D, est:$800/1200

Note: Little is known about Walter Lamb other than that he was based in Hawaii in

the first half of the 20th century, but his work has become increasingly sought-after

by today’s collectors as many contemporary designers focus on sustainable design

by using discarded or waste materials. Either for a desire to salvage and reuse or

a simple need for any available materials with which to create, Lamb scavenged

bronze and copper piping and cotton cord from sunken naval ships after the bombing

of Pearl Harbor. He formed from these recovered materials what has become his

signature series of outdoor furniture and a paradigm of mid-20th century California

design. The unique and wonderful characteristics of these original pieces, aside from

their grace and minimalism, are that the metal frames attain a beautiful green patina

from outdoor exposure yet leave no marks on cement or wooden surfaces as they

age. Lamb worked for the Pasadena firm of Brown Jordan which had purchased the

patent for his work circa 1945. They continued to produce his designs after the supply

of harvested ship parts had been depleted, using newly manufactured materials, until

the 1970s. Condition: Height of seat: 18’’. Good condition overall. Webbing probably
