How to Buy

All you need to know about the bidding process at auction

Viewing

Catalogues

Online catalogues can be viewed at

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au approximately three weeks

prior to the auction date.

Complimentary printed catalogues are available at Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers.

Symbols

Occasionally, a symbol is printed next to a lot number,

indicating a special clause associated with the sale of the

item/s. Further information on symbols within our catalogues

can be found on Page 1.

Viewing

Auction viewings are open to the public and usually take place

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

listed in the auction catalogue and on the website.

Lot Descriptions

Lot Descriptions provide basic catalogue information such

as dimensions, date or age, medium, attribution, provenance

and quantity.

All lots are guaranteed for fourteen (14) days from the

auction date.

Estimates

Estimates are printed in the catalogue beside every lot and

take into account rarity, condition, quality and provenance.

The reserve is the amount at which the item is available for

purchase. The reserve is an undisclosed confidential amount

which is set at, or below the low estimate.

The reserve will never exceed the low estimate at Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers. Many lots are sold without reserve.

Talk to our Specialists

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers are an experienced team of

specialists who are available to discuss items in further detail,

and to offer advice and assistance.

Contact details for relevant specialists can be found on the

inside front cover our auction catalogues and on our website.

Condition Reports

Condition Reports are available on request. Condition Reports

supplement the lot description and provide information on the

condition of an item.

We strongly advise obtaining a condition report if you are

unable to view an item in person prior to the auction.

To request a condition report please email

condition.reports@gibsonsauctions.com.au with the auction

title and lot number/s.

Bidding

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer four bidding options:

1. Auction Room Bidding

To bid in person we suggest you arrive early so that you

have sufficient time to register for a bidding number prior

to the auction. If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers please bring photo identification, such

as a driver’s licence or passport with you.

2. Telephone Bidding

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer telephone bidding on all

lots, at all auctions.

Telephone Bidding is a convenient solution if you are unable to

attend an auction in person. A Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

staff member will call you approximately 5 lots in advance and

with your instruction, bid on your behalf at the auction.

Please note: Telephone Bids must be organised at least 24

hours prior to the auction and that occasionally, the number

of telephone bidders available may be restricted when the

auction is offsite.

To organise a Telephone Bid please follow the link

to the Telephone Bidding form on our website:

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au.

Please fill in & return via email to mail@gibsonsauctions.com.au

If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers, an email address is to be supplied when you submit

your Telephone Bid, along with clear Photo ID verifying

your address.


5

3. Absentee Bids

Absentee Bidding is another convenient solution if you

are unable to attend an auction in person, to speak on the

telephone or if you simply have a strict budget.

An Absentee Bid should be set at the maximum amount

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

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

the bid recorded on your form, the lot will be sold to you for

the lesser hammer price.

Please note Absentee Bids must be received at least 24 hours

prior to the auction to allow time for processing.

To organise an Absentee Bid please follow the link to

the Absentee Bidding form available on our website:

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au.

If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s Auctioneers

& Valuers, an email address is to be supplied when you

submit your Absentee Bid, along with clear Photo ID verifying

your address.

4. Online Bidding

Online bidding allows you to bid via the internet in real

time with a live broadcast of the auction. To bid online visit

our website and follow the ‘Live Bidding’ link under the

‘Auctions’ tab.

Please register for this service at least 24 hours prior to the

auction to ensure you do not miss your lot.

Please note online bidding is powered by Invaluable.com and

so will incur a 5% fee on successful lots.

If you have not bid with Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

previously, a photo ID verifying your address will be

required before you can be approved to bid. Please email to

mail@gibsonsauctions.com.au as soon as practical.

If you are bidding from overseas for the first time, you will be

asked to provide a clear Photo ID verifying your address and

a deposit (set at Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers’ discretion)

prior to the auction. The deposit is refundable within 48

hours should you not be successful. If you are successful

the deposit will be deducted from your invoice total. The

remaining balance must be paid preferably by direct deposit.

Bank details are provided in the Payment & Collection section

of this guide.

The Collection of the late Bjarne Nielsen

Bjarne Kjær Nielsen was born in 1941 on

the west coast of Denmark and grew up

on a farm. At 15 he became a merchant

seaman and travelled the world making

many trips to the Far East. It was this first

introduction to the art and culture of China

which continued to enchant him for the rest

of his life. In 1961 he became a permanent

resident of Australia.

He continued to travel widely and in 1969

was given the opportunity to become

the manager of Aronson Antiques where

through his mentor Nico Aronson his

love of Chinese and Dutch blue and white

porcelain took hold. In 1971 he joined his

father-in-law in the diamond business

and found his true calling as a diamond

merchant for the next 40 years. Bjarne’s

business took him to Europe and the Far

East several times a year and it always

included a side trip to London where he

could indulge in his interests, visiting

antique dealers and galleries. Every trip

seemed to include a parcel home with a

precious piece of blue and white.

This collection presented for sale is

representative of his astute eye and

passion for the beauty of art and especially

antique Chinese and Delft porcelain.

315gms total weight

NOTE

In the last quarter of the 17th century

a number of French huguenot

craftsmen left their own country and

settled in England to escape religious

persecution. The Huguenots were

generally popular in London due to

the protestant reaction under William

and Mary and several collections were

made for their relief. This style of ewer

was typical of French silver from this

period and was introduced to England

by The Huguenot silversmiths at the

end of the 17th century.

Pierre Harrache, thought to be from

Rouen, was the first Huguenot to be

admitted into the Goldsmiths Company.

He is recorded in the company’s

minutes of 21st July 1682 as having

“lately come from France for to avoid

persecution and live quietly” and was

made a Freeman of the company

on the same day. See page 87, “The

Plate of the Worshipful Company of

Goldsmiths,” by J. Bodman-Carrington

& G. Ravensworth-Hughes, University

Press, 1926 edition.

Terms & Conditions of Sale

The terms and conditions of sale listed here contain

the policies of Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

Pty Ltd. They are the terms on which Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers Pty Ltd and the Seller contract

with the Buyer. They may be amended by printed

Saleroom Notices or oral announcements made

before and during the sale. By bidding at auction you

agree to be bound by these terms.

1. Background to the Terms used in

these Conditions

The conditions that are listed below contain terms

that are used regularly and may need explanation.

They are as follows:

“the Buyer” means the person with the highest bid

accepted by the Auctioneer

“the Lot” means any item depicted within the sale for

auction and in particular the item or items described

against any lot number in the catalogue.

“the Hammer price” means the amount of the highest

bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to a lot

“the Buyers Premium” means the charge payable by

the Buyer to the auction house as a percentage of

the hammer price.

“the Reserve” means the lowest amount at which

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers has agreed with the

Seller that the lot can be sold.

“Forgery” means an item constituting an imitation

originally conceived and executed as a whole, with

a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship,

origin, age, period, culture or source, where the

correct description as to such matters is not

reflected by the description in the catalogue.

Accordingly no lot shall be capable of being a forgery

by reason of any damage or restoration work of any

kind (Including re-painting).

“the insured value” means the amount that Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers in its absolute discretion

from time to time shall consider the value for which

a lot should be covered for insurance (whether or

not insurance is arranged by Gibson’s Auctioneers

& Valuers.)

All values expressed in Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers Pty Ltd catalogues (in any format) are in

Australian Dollars (AU$). All bids, “hammer price”,

“reserves”, “Buyers Premium” and other expressions

of value are understood by all parties to be in

Australian Dollars (AU$) unless otherwise specified.

2. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

Auctions as Agent

Except as otherwise stated Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers Pty Ltd acts as agent for the Seller.

The contract for the sale of the property is therefore

made between the Seller and the Buyer.

3. Before the Sale

A) EXAMINATION OF PROPERTY

Prospective Buyers are strongly advised to examine

in person any property in which they are interested

before the Auction takes place. Neither Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers nor the Seller provides any

guarantee in relation to the nature of the property

apart from the Limited warranty in the paragraph

below.

The property is otherwise sold “AS IS”

B) CATALOGUE AND OTHER DESCRIPTIONS

All statements by Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

in the catalogue entry for the property or in the

condition report, or made orally or in writing

elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not

to be relied upon as statements of fact. Such

statements do not constitute a representation,

warranty or assumption of liability by Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers of any kind. References in the

catalogue entry to the condition report to damage

or restoration are for guidance only and should be

evaluated by personal inspection by the bidder or

a knowledgeable representative. The absence of

such a reference does not imply that an item is free

from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to

particular defects imply the absence of any others.

Estimates of the selling price should not be relied

on as a statement that this is the price at which

the item will sell or it’s value for any other purpose.

Neither Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers nor The

Seller is responsible for any errors or omissions in the

catalogue or any supplemental material.

Images are measured height by width (sight size).

Illustrations are provided only as a guide and should

not be relied upon as a true representation of colour

or condition. Images are not shown at a standard

scale. Mention is rarely made of frames (which may be

provided as supplementary images on the website)

which do not form part of the lot as described in the

printed catalogue.

Foreign buyers should note that all transactions

are in Australian dollars (AU$)so there may be a

small exchange rate risk. The costs associated

with acquiring a good certificate will be carried by

the purchaser. If the item turns out to be forged or

otherwise incorrectly described, all reasonable costs

will be borne by the vendor.

C) BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY

All property is sold “as is” without representation

or warranty of any kind by Gibson’s Auctioneers

& Valuers or the Seller. Buyers are responsible for

satisfying themselves concerning the condition

of the property and the matters referred to in the

catalogue by requesting a condition report

4. At the Sale

A) REFUSAL OF ADMISSION

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers reserves the right at

our complete discretion to refuse admission to the

auction premises or participation in any auction and

to reject any bid.

B) REGISTRATION BEFORE BIDDING

Any prospective new buyer must complete and sign

a registration form and provide photo-identification

before bidding. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may

request bank, trade or other financial references to

substantiate this registration.

C) BIDDING AS A PRINCIPAL

When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal

liability to pay the purchase price including the

buyers premium and all applicable taxes, plus all

other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly

agreed in writing with Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

before the commencement of the sale that the

bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified

third party acceptable to Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers and that Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers will

only look to the principal for payment.

D) INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATIONS

All International clients not known to Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers will be required to scan or fax

through an accredited form of photo identification

and pay a deposit at our discretion in cleared funds

into Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers’ account at least

48 hours before the commencement of the auction.

Bids will not be accepted without this deposit.

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers also reserves the

right to request any additional forms of identification

prior to registering an overseas bid.

This deposit can be made using a credit card,

however the balance of any purchase price in excess

of $5,000 can not be charged to this card without

prior arrangement. This deposit is redeemable

against any auction purchase.

E) ABSENTEE BIDS

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers will use reasonable

efforts to execute written bids delivered to us AT

LEAST 24 Hours before the sale for the convenience

of those clients who are unable to attend the auction

in person. If we receive identical written bids on a

particular lot, and at the auction these are the highest

bids on that lot, then the lot will be sold to the person

whose written bid was received and accepted first.

Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken

subject to other commitments at the time of the sale

and we do not accept liability for failing to execute

a written bid or for errors or omissions which may

arise. It is the bidder’s responsibility to check with

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers after the auction if

they were successful. Unlimited or “Buy” bids will not

be accepted. Please refer to our indicative bidding

increments below for appropriate absentee bid

amounts (Section K).

F) TELEPHONE BIDS

Priority will be given to overseas and interstate

bidders. Arrangements for this service must be

confirmed AT LEAST 24 HOURS PRIOR to the auction

commencing. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

accepts no responsibility whatsoever for any errors

or failure to execute bids. In telephone bidding the

buyer agrees to be bound by all terms and conditions

listed here and accepts that Gibson’s Auctioneers

& Valuers cannot be held responsible for any

mis-communications in the process. The success

of telephone bidding cannot be guaranteed due to

circumstances that are unforeseen. Buyers should

be aware of the risk and accept the consequences

should contact be unsuccessful at the time of

Auction. You must advise Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers of the lots in question and recommend a

‘Cover Bid’ amount should there be any issues with

technology or communication via the telephone

number provided. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

will advise Telephone Bidders who have registered

at least 24 hours before the auction of any relevant

changes to descriptions, withdrawals or any other

sale room notices.

G) ONLINE BIDDING

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers accepts no

responsibility for any errors, failure to execute bids or

any other miscommunications regarding this process.

It is the online bidder’s responsibility to ensure the

accuracy of the relevant information regarding bids,

lot numbers and contact details.

H) RESERVES

Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject

to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price

below which the Lot will not be sold. The reserve will

not exceed the low estimate printed in the catalogue.

The auctioneer may open the bidding on any Lot

below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the

Seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf

of seller up to the amount of the reserve, either

by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in

response to other bidders.

I) AUCTIONEERS DISCRETION

The Auctioneer has the right at his absolute and sole

discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding

in such a manner as he may decide, to withdraw or

divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and,

in the case or error or dispute and whether during or


111

after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to

continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer

and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises

after the sale, then Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers’s

sale record is conclusive.

J) SUCCESSFUL BID AND PASSING OF RISK

Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the highest

bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer

and the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance

of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract

for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Risk and

responsibility for the lot (including frames or glass

where relevant) passes immediately to the Buyer.

K) INDICATIVE BIDDING STEPS, ETC.

a reserve on any lot and to advance the bidding

our possession owned by the Buyer whether by

way of pledge, security interest or in any other

way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of

the place where such property is located. The

Buyer will be deemed to have been granted such

security to us and we may retain such property

as collateral security for such Buyer’s obligations

to us.

x) to take such other action as Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers deem necessary or

appropriate

If we do sell the property under paragraph

total amount originally due to us and the

price obtained upon reselling as well as for

all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and

commissions and premiums of whatever kinds

associated with both sales or otherwise arising

from the default.

If we pay any amount to the Seller under

paragraph (v) the Buyer acknowledges that

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers shall have all

of the rights of the Seller, however arising, to

pursue the Buyer for such amount.

G) FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES

Where purchases are not collected within three (3)

days from the sale date, whether or not payment

has been made, we shall be permitted to remove the

property to a warehouse at the buyer’s expense, and

only release the items after payment in full has been

made of removal, storage handling, insurance and

any other costs incurred, together with payment of all

other amounts due to us.

6. Extent of Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers Liability

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers agrees to refund

the purchase price in the circumstances of the

Limited Warranty set out in paragraph 7 below.

Apart from that, neither the Seller nor we, nor any

of our employees or agents are responsible for

the correctness of any statement of whatever kind

concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor

for any other errors or omissions in description

or for any faults or defects in any lots. Except as

stated in paragraph 7 below, neither the Seller

ourselves, our officers, agents or employees give any

representation warranty or guarantee or assume any

liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard

to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose,

description, size, quality, condition, attribution,

authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance,

exhibition history, literature or historical relevance.

Except as required by local law any warranty of any

kind is excluded by this paragraph.

7. Limited Warranty

Subject to the terms and conditions of this

paragraph, the Seller warrants for the period of

fourteen (14) days from the date of the sale that

any property described in this catalogue (noting

such description may be amended by any saleroom

notice or announcement) which is stated without

qualification to be the work of a named author or


112

authorship is authentic and not a forgery. The term

“Author” or “authorship” refers to the creator of the

property or to the period, culture, source, or origin

as the case may be, with which the creation of such

property is identified in the catalogue.

The warranty is subject to the following:

i) it does not apply where a) the catalogue

description or saleroom notice corresponded

to the generally accepted opinion of scholars

and experts at the date of the sale or fairly

indicated that there was a conflict of opinions,

or b) correct identification of a lot can be

demonstrated only by means of a scientific

process not generally accepted for use until

after publication of the catalogue or a process

which at the date of the publication of the

catalogue was unreasonably expensive or

impractical or likely to have caused damage to

the property.

ii)

iii)

iv)

the benefits of the warranty are not assignable

and shall apply only to the original buyer of the

lot as shown on the invoice originally issued by

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers when the lot was

sold at Auction.

the Original Buyer must have remained the

owner of the lot without disposing of any interest

in it to any third party

The Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy against

the Seller in place of any other remedy which

might be available, is the cancellation of the sale

and the refund of the original purchase price

paid for the lot less the buyers premium which is

non refundable. Neither the Seller nor Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers will be liable for any

special, incidental nor consequential damages

including, without limitation, loss of profits not for

interest.

v) The Buyer must give written notice of claim

to us within fourteen (14) days of the date of

the Auction. The Seller shall have the right,

to require the Buyer to obtain two written

opinions by recognised experts in the field,

mutually acceptable to the Buyer and Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers to decide whether or not

to cancel the sale under warranty.

vi)

the Buyer must return the lot to Seller in the

same condition that it was purchased.

8. Severability

If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any

court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part

shall be discounted and the rest of the Conditions

shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent

permitted by law.

9. Copyright

The copyright of all images, illustrations and written

material produced by Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers relating to a lot including the contents of this

catalogue, is and shall remain the property at all times

of Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers and shall not be

used by the Buyer, nor by anyone else without our

prior written consent. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

and the Seller make no representation or warranty

that the Buyer of a property will acquire any copyright

or other reproduction rights in it.

10. Law and Jurisdiction

These terms and conditions and any matters

concerned with the foregoing fall within the exclusive

jurisdiction of the courts of the state in which the

auction is held.

11. Pre-Sale Estimates

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers publishes with each

catalogue our opinion as to the estimated price range

for each lot. These estimates are approximate prices

only and are not intended to be definitive. They are

subject to revision. Interested parties should contact

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers prior to auction for

updated pre-sale estimates and starting prices.

12. Sale results

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers will provide auction

results, which will be available as soon as possible

Australian tax office (ATO) a Goods and Service Tax

(GST) of 10% on all applicable transactions.

GEMSTONES

Gemstones have historically been subjected to a

variety of treatments to enhance their appearance.

Sapphire and rubies are routinely heat treated to

improve their colour and clarity, similarly emeralds

are frequently treated with oils or resin for the same

purpose. Other treatments such as staining or dyeing,

irradiation, filling or coating may have been used

on other precious and semi-precious gemstones

and organic material. These treatments may be

permanent, whilst others may need special care to

preserve their appearance. Buyers should assume

that each lot has been subject to some form of

treatment and that the estimates reflect this.

A number of laboratories issue certificates that

give detailed descriptions of gemstones, and in

the event that Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers has

been supplied with or obtained certificates for any

lot, this shall be noted in the catalogue. However,

as there may not be consensus between different

laboratories on the degree, or types of treatment

of the gemstones, Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

supplies these without warranty.

Buyers should assume that all gemstones sold by

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may have been

subjected to such treatments, and that the catalogue

estimates reflect this.

PEARLS

Pearls, like gemstones, are also subject to various

treatments. Buyers should assume that any pearls

sold by Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may have

been subjected to such treatments, and that the

catalogue estimates reflect this.

WATCHES

Please note: All watches sold by Gibson’s

Auctioneers & Valuers are sold on an “as is”

basis. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers makes no

representation or warranty that any watch is in

working order. Many watches have been repaired

over their lifetime and may contain non-original parts.

The absence of any reference to the condition of a

watch does not imply that the lot is in good condition

and without defects, repairs or restorations. Buyers

should be aware that a general service, change of

battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is

solely responsible for, may be necessary.

ESTIMATED WEIGHTS

If a stone has a known weight, it has been weighed

out of the mount. If a stone has an estimated weight,

it is an approximate weight only and has been

measured by us in the mount and is a statement of

opinion only. The information is given as a guide only

and Buyers should satisfy themselves with regard to

this information as to its accuracy.
