How to Buy<br />

All you need to know about the bidding process at auction<br />

Viewing<br />

Catalogues<br />

Online catalogues can be viewed at<br />

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au approximately three weeks<br />

prior to the auction date.<br />

Complimentary printed catalogues are available at Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers.<br />

Symbols<br />

Occasionally, a symbol is printed next to a lot number,<br />

indicating a special clause associated with the sale of the<br />

item/s. Further information on symbols within our catalogues<br />

can be found on Page 1.<br />

Viewing<br />

Auction viewings are open to the public and usually take place<br />

three or four days prior to the auction date, at the location/s<br />

listed in the auction catalogue and on the website.<br />

Lot Descriptions<br />

Lot Descriptions provide basic catalogue information such<br />

as dimensions, date or age, medium, attribution, provenance<br />

and quantity.<br />

All lots are guaranteed for fourteen (14) days from the<br />

auction date.<br />

Estimates<br />

Estimates are printed in the catalogue beside every lot and<br />

take into account rarity, condition, quality and provenance.<br />

The reserve is the amount at which the item is available for<br />

purchase. The reserve is an undisclosed confidential amount<br />

which is set at, or below the low estimate.<br />

The reserve will never exceed the low estimate at Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers. Many lots are sold without reserve.<br />

Talk to our Specialists<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers are an experienced team of<br />

specialists who are available to discuss items in further detail,<br />

and to offer advice and assistance.<br />

Contact details for relevant specialists can be found on the<br />

inside front cover our auction catalogues and on our website.<br />

Condition Reports<br />

Condition Reports are available on request. Condition Reports<br />

supplement the lot description and provide information on the<br />

condition of an item.<br />

We strongly advise obtaining a condition report if you are<br />

unable to view an item in person prior to the auction.<br />

To request a condition report please email<br />

condition.reports@gibsonsauctions.com.au with the auction<br />

title and lot number/s.<br />

Bidding<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer four bidding options:<br />

1. Auction Room Bidding<br />

To bid in person we suggest you arrive early so that you<br />

have sufficient time to register for a bidding number prior<br />

to the auction. If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers please bring photo identification, such<br />

as a driver’s licence or passport with you.<br />

2. Telephone Bidding<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer telephone bidding on all<br />

lots, at all auctions.<br />

Telephone Bidding is a convenient solution if you are unable to<br />

attend an auction in person. A Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

staff member will call you approximately 5 lots in advance and<br />

with your instruction, bid on your behalf at the auction.<br />

Please note: Telephone Bids must be organised at least 24<br />

hours prior to the auction and that occasionally, the number<br />

of telephone bidders available may be restricted when the<br />

auction is offsite.<br />

To organise a Telephone Bid please follow the link<br />

to the Telephone Bidding form on our website:<br />

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au.<br />

Please fill in & return via email to mail@gibsonsauctions.com.au<br />

If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s Auctioneers &<br />

Valuers, an email address is to be supplied when you submit<br />

your Telephone Bid, along with clear Photo ID verifying<br />

your address.


5<br />

3. Absentee Bids<br />

Absentee Bidding is another convenient solution if you<br />

are unable to attend an auction in person, to speak on the<br />

telephone or if you simply have a strict budget.<br />

An Absentee Bid should be set at the maximum amount<br />

you wish to bid on the lot/s you are interested in purchasing.<br />

Should the lot/s be knocked down at an amount lower than<br />

the bid recorded on your form, the lot will be sold to you for<br />

the lesser hammer price.<br />

Please note Absentee Bids must be received at least 24 hours<br />

prior to the auction to allow time for processing.<br />

To organise an Absentee Bid please follow the link to<br />

the Absentee Bidding form available on our website:<br />

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au.<br />

Please fill in & return via email to mail@gibsonsauctions.com.au<br />

If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s Auctioneers<br />

& Valuers, an email address is to be supplied when you<br />

submit your Absentee Bid, along with clear Photo ID verifying<br />

your address.<br />

4. Online Bidding<br />

Online bidding allows you to bid via the internet in real<br />

time with a live broadcast of the auction. To bid online visit<br />

our website and follow the ‘Live Bidding’ link under the<br />

‘Auctions’ tab.<br />

Please register for this service at least 24 hours prior to the<br />

auction to ensure you do not miss your lot.<br />

Please note online bidding is powered by Invaluable.com and<br />

so will incur a 5% fee on successful lots.<br />

If you have not bid with Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

previously, a photo ID verifying your address will be<br />

required before you can be approved to bid. Please email to<br />

mail@gibsonsauctions.com.au as soon as practical.<br />

International Bidding<br />

If you are bidding from overseas for the first time, you will be<br />

asked to provide a clear Photo ID verifying your address and<br />

a deposit (set at Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers’ discretion)<br />

prior to the auction. The deposit is refundable within 48<br />

hours should you not be successful. If you are successful<br />

the deposit will be deducted from your invoice total. The<br />

remaining balance must be paid preferably by direct deposit.<br />

Bank details are provided in the Payment & Collection section<br />

of this guide.<br />

Payment & Collection<br />

Payments<br />

If you are successful an invoice (AU$) will be emailed or<br />

posted to you immediately after the auction.<br />

applicable charges such as GST on hammer.<br />

The Collection of the late Bjarne Nielsen<br />

Bjarne Kjær Nielsen was born in 1941 on<br />

the west coast of Denmark and grew up<br />

on a farm. At 15 he became a merchant<br />

seaman and travelled the world making<br />

many trips to the Far East. It was this first<br />

introduction to the art and culture of China<br />

which continued to enchant him for the rest<br />

of his life. In 1961 he became a permanent<br />

resident of Australia.<br />

He continued to travel widely and in 1969<br />

was given the opportunity to become<br />

the manager of Aronson Antiques where<br />

through his mentor Nico Aronson his<br />

love of Chinese and Dutch blue and white<br />

porcelain took hold. In 1971 he joined his<br />

father-in-law in the diamond business<br />

and found his true calling as a diamond<br />

merchant for the next 40 years. Bjarne’s<br />

business took him to Europe and the Far<br />

East several times a year and it always<br />

included a side trip to London where he<br />

could indulge in his interests, visiting<br />

antique dealers and galleries. Every trip<br />

seemed to include a parcel home with a<br />

precious piece of blue and white.<br />

This collection presented for sale is<br />

representative of his astute eye and<br />

passion for the beauty of art and especially<br />

antique Chinese and Delft porcelain.

NOTE<br />

In the last quarter of the 17th century<br />

a number of French huguenot<br />

craftsmen left their own country and<br />

settled in England to escape religious<br />

persecution. The Huguenots were<br />

generally popular in London due to<br />

the protestant reaction under William<br />

and Mary and several collections were<br />

made for their relief. This style of ewer<br />

was typical of French silver from this<br />

period and was introduced to England<br />

by The Huguenot silversmiths at the<br />

end of the 17th century.<br />

Pierre Harrache, thought to be from<br />

Rouen, was the first Huguenot to be<br />

admitted into the Goldsmiths Company.<br />

He is recorded in the company’s<br />

minutes of 21st July 1682 as having<br />

“lately come from France for to avoid<br />

persecution and live quietly” and was<br />

made a Freeman of the company<br />

on the same day. See page 87, “The<br />

Plate of the Worshipful Company of<br />

Goldsmiths,” by J. Bodman-Carrington<br />

business in Geelong, which expanded<br />

to employing some 17 workers by the<br />

business and moved to Melbourne<br />

agree to be bound by these terms.<br />

1. Background to the Terms used in<br />

these Conditions<br />

The conditions that are listed below contain terms<br />

that are used regularly and may need explanation.<br />

They are as follows:<br />

“the Buyer” means the person with the highest bid<br />

accepted by the Auctioneer<br />

“the Lot” means any item depicted within the sale for<br />

auction and in particular the item or items described<br />

against any lot number in the catalogue.<br />

“the Hammer price” means the amount of the highest<br />

bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to a lot<br />

“the Buyers Premium” means the charge payable by<br />

the Buyer to the auction house as a percentage of<br />

the hammer price.<br />

“the Reserve” means the lowest amount at which<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers has agreed with the<br />

Seller that the lot can be sold.<br />

“Forgery” means an item constituting an imitation<br />

originally conceived and executed as a whole, with<br />

a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship,<br />

origin, age, period, culture or source, where the<br />

correct description as to such matters is not<br />

reflected by the description in the catalogue.<br />

Accordingly no lot shall be capable of being a forgery<br />

by reason of any damage or restoration work of any<br />

kind (Including re-painting).<br />

“the insured value” means the amount that Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers in its absolute discretion<br />

from time to time shall consider the value for which<br />

a lot should be covered for insurance (whether or<br />

not insurance is arranged by Gibson’s Auctioneers<br />

& Valuers.)<br />

All values expressed in Gibson’s Auctioneers &<br />

Valuers Pty Ltd catalogues (in any format) are in<br />

Australian Dollars (AU$). All bids, “hammer price”,<br />

“reserves”, “Buyers Premium” and other expressions<br />

of value are understood by all parties to be in<br />

2. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

Auctions as Agent<br />

Except as otherwise stated Gibson’s Auctioneers &<br />

Valuers Pty Ltd acts as agent for the Seller.<br />

The contract for the sale of the property is therefore<br />

made between the Seller and the Buyer.<br />

3. Before the Sale<br />

A) EXAMINATION OF PROPERTY<br />

Prospective Buyers are strongly advised to examine<br />

in person any property in which they are interested<br />

before the Auction takes place. Neither Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers nor the Seller provides any<br />

guarantee in relation to the nature of the property<br />

apart from the Limited warranty in the paragraph<br />

below.<br />

The property is otherwise sold “AS IS”<br />

B) CATALOGUE AND OTHER DESCRIPTIONS<br />

All statements by Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

in the catalogue entry for the property or in the<br />

condition report, or made orally or in writing<br />

elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not<br />

to be relied upon as statements of fact. Such<br />

statements do not constitute a representation,<br />

warranty or assumption of liability by Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers of any kind. References in the<br />

catalogue entry to the condition report to damage<br />

or restoration are for guidance only and should be<br />

evaluated by personal inspection by the bidder or<br />

a knowledgeable representative. The absence of<br />

such a reference does not imply that an item is free<br />

from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to<br />

particular defects imply the absence of any others.<br />

Estimates of the selling price should not be relied<br />

on as a statement that this is the price at which<br />

the item will sell or it’s value for any other purpose.<br />

Neither Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers nor The<br />

Seller is responsible for any errors or omissions in the<br />

catalogue or any supplemental material.<br />

Illustrations are provided only as a guide and should<br />

not be relied upon as a true representation of colour<br />

or condition. Images are not shown at a standard<br />

scale. Mention is rarely made of frames (which may be<br />

provided as supplementary images on the website)<br />

which do not form part of the lot as described in the<br />

printed catalogue.<br />

Foreign buyers should note that all transactions<br />

are in Australian dollars (AU$)so there may be a<br />

small exchange rate risk. The costs associated<br />

with acquiring a good certificate will be carried by<br />

the purchaser. If the item turns out to be forged or<br />

otherwise incorrectly described, all reasonable costs<br />

will be borne by the vendor.<br />

C) BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY<br />

All property is sold “as is” without representation<br />

or warranty of any kind by Gibson’s Auctioneers<br />

of those clients who are unable to attend the auction<br />

particular lot, and at the auction these are the highest<br />

bids on that lot, then the lot will be sold to the person<br />

whose written bid was received and accepted first.<br />

Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken<br />

subject to other commitments at the time of the sale<br />

and we do not accept liability for failing to execute<br />

a written bid or for errors or omissions which may<br />

arise. It is the bidder’s responsibility to check with<br />

after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to<br />

continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer<br />

and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises<br />

sale record is conclusive.<br />

J) SUCCESSFUL BID AND PASSING OF RISK<br />

E) CULTURAL HERITAGE EXPORT LICENCES<br />

Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the fact<br />

that the buyer wishes to apply for an export licence<br />

does not affect his or her obligation to make full<br />

payment immediately, nor our right to charge<br />

interest or storage charges on late payment. It<br />

is the Buyer’s responsibility to check Australia’s<br />

Protection of Moveable Cultural Heritage Act 1986<br />

before purchase. If the Buyer requests Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers to apply for an export licence<br />

then we shall be entitled to charge a fee for this<br />

service. We shall not be obliged to rescind a sale nor<br />

to refund any interest or other expenses incurred<br />

by the Buyer where payment is made by the Buyer<br />

in circumstances where an export licence is not<br />

granted.<br />

total amount due and to commence legal<br />

proceedings for it’s recovery along with interest,<br />

legal fees and costs to the fullest extent<br />

permitted under applicable law<br />

to cancel the sale<br />

to resell the property publicly or privately on<br />

such terms as we see fit<br />

v) to pay the Seller an amount up to the net<br />

proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid<br />

by the defaulting Buyer. In these circumstances<br />

the defaulting Buyer can have no claim upon<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers in the event that<br />

the item(s) are sold for an amount greater than<br />

the original invoiced amount.<br />

vi)<br />

vii)<br />

to set off against any amounts which Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers may owe the Buyer in<br />

any other transactions, the outstanding amount<br />

remaining unpaid by the Buyer.<br />

where several amounts are owed by the Buyer to<br />

us, in respect of different transactions, to apply<br />

any amount paid to discharge any amount owed<br />

in respect of any particular transaction, whether<br />

or not the Buyer so directs.<br />

viii) to reject at any future auction any bids made by<br />

or on behalf of the Buyer or to obtain a deposit<br />

from the Buyer prior to accepting any bids.<br />

ix)<br />

person holding security over any property in<br />

our possession owned by the Buyer whether by<br />

way of pledge, security interest or in any other<br />

way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of<br />

the place where such property is located. The<br />

Buyer will be deemed to have been granted such<br />

security to us and we may retain such property<br />

as collateral security for such Buyer’s obligations<br />

to us.<br />

x) to take such other action as Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers deem necessary or<br />

appropriate<br />

If we do sell the property under paragraph<br />

(iv), then the defaulting Buyer shall be liable<br />

for payment of any deficiency between the<br />

total amount originally due to us and the<br />

price obtained upon reselling as well as for<br />

all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and<br />

commissions and premiums of whatever kinds<br />

associated with both sales or otherwise arising<br />

from the default.<br />

If we pay any amount to the Seller under<br />

paragraph (v) the Buyer acknowledges that<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers shall have all<br />

of the rights of the Seller, however arising, to<br />

pursue the Buyer for such amount.<br />

G) FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES<br />

Where purchases are not collected within three (3)<br />

days from the sale date, whether or not payment<br />

has been made, we shall be permitted to remove the<br />

property to a warehouse at the buyer’s expense, and<br />

only release the items after payment in full has been<br />

made of removal, storage handling, insurance and<br />

any other costs incurred, together with payment of all<br />

other amounts due to us.<br />

Valuers Liability<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers agrees to refund<br />

the purchase price in the circumstances of the<br />

Limited Warranty set out in paragraph 7 below.<br />

Apart from that, neither the Seller nor we, nor any<br />

of our employees or agents are responsible for<br />

the correctness of any statement of whatever kind<br />

concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor<br />

for any other errors or omissions in description<br />

or for any faults or defects in any lots. Except as<br />

stated in paragraph 7 below, neither the Seller<br />

ourselves, our officers, agents or employees give any<br />

representation warranty or guarantee or assume any<br />

liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard<br />

to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose,<br />

description, size, quality, condition, attribution,<br />

authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance,<br />

exhibition history, literature or historical relevance.<br />

Except as required by local law any warranty of any<br />

kind is excluded by this paragraph.<br />

7. Limited Warranty<br />

Subject to the terms and conditions of this<br />

paragraph, the Seller warrants for the period of<br />

fourteen (14) days from the date of the sale that<br />

any property described in this catalogue (noting<br />

such description may be amended by any saleroom<br />

notice or announcement) which is stated without<br />

qualification to be the work of a named author or


112<br />

authorship is authentic and not a forgery. The term<br />

“Author” or “authorship” refers to the creator of the<br />

property or to the period, culture, source, or origin<br />

as the case may be, with which the creation of such<br />

property is identified in the catalogue.<br />

The warranty is subject to the following:<br />

i) it does not apply where a) the catalogue<br />

description or saleroom notice corresponded<br />

to the generally accepted opinion of scholars<br />

and experts at the date of the sale or fairly<br />

indicated that there was a conflict of opinions,<br />

or b) correct identification of a lot can be<br />

demonstrated only by means of a scientific<br />

process not generally accepted for use until<br />

after publication of the catalogue or a process<br />

which at the date of the publication of the<br />

catalogue was unreasonably expensive or<br />

impractical or likely to have caused damage to<br />

the property.<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

iv)<br />

the benefits of the warranty are not assignable<br />

and shall apply only to the original buyer of the<br />

lot as shown on the invoice originally issued by<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers when the lot was<br />

sold at Auction.<br />

the Original Buyer must have remained the<br />

owner of the lot without disposing of any interest<br />

in it to any third party<br />

The Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy against<br />

the Seller in place of any other remedy which<br />

might be available, is the cancellation of the sale<br />

and the refund of the original purchase price<br />

paid for the lot less the buyers premium which is<br />

non refundable. Neither the Seller nor Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers will be liable for any<br />

special, incidental nor consequential damages<br />

including, without limitation, loss of profits not for<br />

interest.<br />

v) The Buyer must give written notice of claim<br />

to us within fourteen (14) days of the date of<br />

the Auction. The Seller shall have the right,<br />

to require the Buyer to obtain two written<br />

opinions by recognised experts in the field,<br />

mutually acceptable to the Buyer and Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers to decide whether or not<br />

to cancel the sale under warranty.<br />

vi)<br />

the Buyer must return the lot to Seller in the<br />

same condition that it was purchased.<br />

8. Severability<br />

If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any<br />

court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part<br />

shall be discounted and the rest of the Conditions<br />

shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent<br />

permitted by law.<br />

9. Copyright<br />

The copyright of all images, illustrations and written<br />

material produced by Gibson’s Auctioneers &<br />

of Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers and shall not be<br />

used by the Buyer, nor by anyone else without our<br />

prior written consent. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

and the Seller make no representation or warranty<br />

that the Buyer of a property will acquire any copyright<br />

or other reproduction rights in it.<br />

10. Law and Jurisdiction<br />

concerned with the foregoing fall within the exclusive<br />

jurisdiction of the courts of the state in which the<br />

auction is held.<br />

11. Pre-Sale Estimates<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers publishes with each<br />

catalogue our opinion as to the estimated price range<br />

for each lot. These estimates are approximate prices<br />

only and are not intended to be definitive. They are<br />

prepared well in advance of the sale and may be<br />

subject to revision. Interested parties should contact<br />

updated pre-sale estimates and starting prices.<br />

12. Sale results<br />

and Services Tax) Act 1999 Gibson’s Auctioneers<br />

& Valuers Auctions will collect on behalf of the<br />

Australian tax office (ATO) a Goods and Service Tax<br />

(GST) of 10% on all applicable transactions.<br />

ABN: 26 440 767 899<br />

GST is applicable on the hammer price in the case<br />

where the seller is selling property that is owned by<br />

an entity registered for GST. GST is also applicable<br />

on the hammer price in the case where the seller is<br />

not an Australian resident. These lots are denoted by<br />

a dagger symbol † placed next to the estimate.<br />

GST is also applicable on the buyer’s premium.<br />

Overseas buyers and buyers non-resident in Australia<br />

will not be charged GST on both hammer price and<br />

premiums under the following conditions:<br />

1. The items are exported through a Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers approved freight<br />

company including Australia Post<br />

2. The items are exported within 60 days of the<br />

date of the sale<br />

The invoice supplied by Gibson’s Auctioneers &<br />

Valuers for purchases will be regarded as a Tax<br />

invoice for GST purposes.<br />

14. Resale Royalty Scheme<br />

Under the legal obligations of the Resale Royalty<br />

Scheme for Visual Artists Act 2009, sellers must<br />

provide the following information to comply with<br />

the act:<br />

• was the artwork acquired after 8 June 2010?<br />

The seller:<br />

i) acknowledges that he or she understands his or<br />

her legal obligations under the Resale Royalty for<br />

Visual Artists Act 2009 (the Act);<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

loss incurred by the company as a result of<br />

the vendor’s failure to comply with any of the<br />

vendor’s legal obligations under the Act; and<br />

acknowledges that if he or she fails to comply<br />

with any of his or her legal obligations under<br />

the Act, the company may provide the vendor’s<br />

premium plus any applicable GST.<br />

15. Jewels & Watches<br />

GEMSTONES<br />

Gemstones have historically been subjected to a<br />

variety of treatments to enhance their appearance.<br />

Sapphire and rubies are routinely heat treated to<br />

improve their colour and clarity, similarly emeralds<br />

are frequently treated with oils or resin for the same<br />

purpose. Other treatments such as staining or dyeing,<br />

irradiation, filling or coating may have been used<br />

on other precious and semi-precious gemstones<br />

and organic material. These treatments may be<br />

permanent, whilst others may need special care to<br />

preserve their appearance. Buyers should assume<br />

that each lot has been subject to some form of<br />

treatment and that the estimates reflect this.<br />

A number of laboratories issue certificates that<br />

give detailed descriptions of gemstones, and in<br />

the event that Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers has<br />

been supplied with or obtained certificates for any<br />

lot, this shall be noted in the catalogue. However,<br />

as there may not be consensus between different<br />

laboratories on the degree, or types of treatment<br />

of the gemstones, Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

supplies these without warranty.<br />

Buyers should assume that all gemstones sold by<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may have been<br />

subjected to such treatments, and that the catalogue<br />

estimates reflect this.<br />

PEARLS<br />

Pearls, like gemstones, are also subject to various<br />

treatments. Buyers should assume that any pearls<br />

sold by Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may have<br />

been subjected to such treatments, and that the<br />

catalogue estimates reflect this.<br />

WATCHES<br />

Please note: All watches sold by Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers are sold on an “as is”<br />

basis. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers makes no<br />

representation or warranty that any watch is in<br />

working order. Many watches have been repaired<br />

over their lifetime and may contain non-original parts.<br />

The absence of any reference to the condition of a<br />

watch does not imply that the lot is in good condition<br />

and without defects, repairs or restorations. Buyers<br />

should be aware that a general service, change of<br />

battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is<br />

solely responsible for, may be necessary.<br />

ESTIMATED WEIGHTS<br />

If a stone has a known weight, it has been weighed<br />

out of the mount. If a stone has an estimated weight,<br />

it is an approximate weight only and has been<br />

measured by us in the mount and is a statement of<br />

opinion only. The information is given as a guide only<br />

and Buyers should satisfy themselves with regard to<br />

this information as to its accuracy.
