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.

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.

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

title and lot number/s.

Bidding

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer four bidding options:

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:

your Telephone Bid, along with clear Photo ID verifying

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.

Auctions’ tab.

MARIUS JEAN ANTONIN MERCIÉ

(FRENCH 1845 - 1916)

Gloria Victis, circa 1889

conceived circa 1874, the gilded and

patinated bronze with a circular plinth

base signed ‘A. MERCIÉ’, titled ‘GLORIA

VICTIS’, with foundry inscription ‘F.

BARBEDIENNE, Fondeur’ and with ‘A.

COLLAS REDUCTION MECHANIQUE’

cachet stamp

82.5 cm high

NOTE

The full-size plaster model of Gloria

Victis was exhibited at the Salon of 1874,

winning the Medaille d’Honneur and

critical acclaim. It was then purchased

by the City of Paris for the sum of twelve

thousand francs and then cast in bronze

by Victor Thiébaut for eight thousand

francs. The original bronze is now placed

in a central courtyard at the Hôtel de

Ville. The plaster version was re-exhibited

at the Paris Exposition Universelle of

1878, alongside bronze reductions of the

group by Barbedienne. Mercié’s modern

sculpture had become an instant classic,

even receiving an entry in the Nouveau

Larousse Illustré. The success of the

group undoubtedly lay in the fact that

it was admired not just on an aesthetic

level, but also on a patriotic level. The

winged female figure of hope carries to

glory a dying French hero, his broken

sword a sign of defeat. As the sting of

their defeat at the hands of the Prussians

was still keenly felt by the French nation,

the idea of commemoration of heroism

in defeat made Mercié’s composition

especially popular. Critics also marvelled

at the compositional daring of the group,

balancing as it did two figures on the

minimal support of one foot.

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

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

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

J) SUCCESSFUL BID AND PASSING OF RISK

bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer

of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract

for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Risk and

made of removal, storage handling, insurance and

any other costs incurred, together with payment of all

other amounts due to us.

15. Jewels & Watches

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.
