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:

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

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.

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

NOTE

John Baird (1834-1894) was an amateur sculptor who

was a postman in Sydney. He worked in kerosene shale,

an unusual material for sculpture, which was mined on

the North Shore and at Hartley and although he did not

exhibit his work during his lifetime it was the subject of

an article in the ‘Illustrated Sydney News’ in 1886 titled

Carvings in Shale- a Sydney Postman’s Discovery. He

specialised in animals, medallions of notable people,

and members of his family. The bust of Jane, his wife, is

in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia.

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

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

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

of telephone bidding cannot be guaranteed due to

circumstances that are unforeseen. Buyers should

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

discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding

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

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.

Valuers Liability

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.

and experts at the date of the sale or fairly

indicated that there was a conflict of opinions,

the property.

same condition that it was purchased.

permitted by law.

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

updated pre-sale estimates and starting prices.

12. Sale results

13. Goods and Service Tax

Australian tax office (ATO) a Goods and Service Tax

(GST) of 10% on all applicable transactions.

2. The items are exported within 60 days of the

date of the sale

The invoice supplied by Gibson’s Auctioneers &

Valuers for purchases will be regarded as a Tax

invoice for GST purposes.

14. Resale Royalty Scheme

Under the legal obligations of the Resale Royalty

Scheme for Visual Artists Act 2009, sellers must

provide the following information to comply with

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.
