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

The George Gyori Collection

George Gyori arrived in Australia in 1957 at the

age of 19 as a refugee from Hungary. Brought

here by the Red Cross, George became an

Australian citizen in 1962 and started his own

general engineering business in 1963.

George's interest in timepieces can be traced

back to his upbringing in Hungary, where it

had not been possible for his family to afford

the wristwatch he always wanted. His success

in Australia meant that he was eventually

able to begin collecting watches and this

soon developed into an interest in clocks,

their mechanics and their workmanship.

It was a natural progression to clock-making

machinery and scientific instruments.

Between 1960 and 1980, George regularly

visited Sunday markets and metal merchants,

both of which he found to be a valuable source

of pieces for his collection. As items became

harder to find, George turned his engineering

skills to advantage and began making

pieces he could not source, considering

their manufacture to be an engineering

challenge. He always aimed for the perfect

replica, made to the most demanding of

engineering tolerances using his favourite

items in this very personal collection, the old

watch-making machinery.

A limited edition grand orrery, made by George Gyori

mounted on an ebonised wooden base surmounted by

a circular brass plate engraved with signs of the Zodiac,

months of the year and the four seasons, the central stepped

and turned brass column surmounted by a brass sun, the

geared arms supporting the planets and moons of earth’s

solar system.

52cm high, 78cm diameter

The grand orrery is a mechanical model powered by

clockwork, that replicates the orbit of the planets of our solar

system around the sun. The first modern orrery was produced

in 1704. This contemporary example is made of brass and

wood. Its baseplate is engraved with months, zodiac signs and

the four seasons. The earliest known example of clockwork

technology is the Greek made Antikythera mechanism

from 87 BC. Records and mythology suggest many ancient

cultures were familiar with clockwork mechanisms, but this

knowledge was lost during the Dark Ages. Technology with

comparable complexity did not re-emerge in Europe until the

14th century.

The present example is an astrological timepiece popularised

during the Age of Enlightenment. This intellectual movement

dominated European culture in the 17th and 18th century.

The Enlightenment emphasised reason and science over

superstition and faith to an increasingly literate population.

This drove the development and dissemination of scientific

equipment like orreries.

This particular orrery models the orbit of the earth and the

outer planets around the sun. The earth completes a solar

orbit every 365.256 days. In this journey the earth travels 940

million kilometres in a counter-clockwise direction at a speed

of nearly 30 kilometres per second, or 67,000 miles per hour.

A patented tellurian tabletop orrery by Parkes and Hadley,

early 20th century

with an oil lamp and reflector as the sun, on a cast iron base

27cm high

NOTE

A device that only illustrates the earth, is called a ‘tellurian’ and

one that illustrates the movements of the moon, a ‘lunarium’.

The term ‘lunarium’ is usually not associated with the lunar

depiction of a tellurian, but rather a more specialized device.

A brass and enamel half size compass orrery

by Eugène Ducretet, Paris, late 19th century

‘Cosmographie de Girod La Maison E Ducretet & CIE a Paris,

Rue Claude Bernard 75 est seule Concessionaire pour

l’Exploitation de cet Appareil’ and ‘E Ducretet ET CIE Paris’

42cm high

A patented Parkes and Hadley’s brass tellurian and lunarium

orrery, late 19th century

with a candle and reflector as the sun, on a cast iron stand

with a crank handle mechanism

42.5cm high

NOTE

Planetariums have existed for centuries. A particularly famous

one was made about 1704 for Charles Boyle, the 4th Earl of

Orrery and hence the machine became known as an ‘Orrery’.

This name however, is properly applied mainly to planetariums

illustrating more than one planet revolving around the sun. A

device that only illustrates the earth, is called a ‘tellurian’ and

one that illustrates the movements of the moon, a ‘lunarium’.

Nowadays, the term ‘lunarium’ is usually not associated

with the lunar depiction of a tellurian, but rather a more

specialised device.

The Clark Family – A Colonial History

John Clark migrated to Launceston, Tasmania in 1833

aboard the ship the Red Rover.

He married Ann Guillan and they had 3 sons and 3

daughters.

The eldest son was David born in Sydney in 1838.

They came to Melbourne in1840 where John was

listed on the electoral roll at 137 Elizabeth St as

Journeyman and Saddler.

John established a successful business as saddler

and harness maker on freehold property in Lonsdale

St which was later sold to Sydney Myer.

In August 1854 he purchased 61/2 acres at Yarraberg

(Richmond) where he carried on the Stafford Tannery

in addition to the saddlery and harness business

in Lonsdale Street. Their neighbours and friends in

Yarraberg were the Mitchell family whose daughter

was Nellie Melba.

The business won a number of awards at various

shows as follows:

1857 Clark & Sons won second prize for cart and

plough harness at the Port Phillip Farmers

Society Show

1858 Silver Medal at the Victorian Industrial Society

Exhibition for the best 12 basils and for skirt

hides and bag leather

1862 Silver Medal at the London Exhibition

1865 Silver Medal (Arts & Manufacture) Dublin

International.

1867 Bronze Medal best collection of leather at the

Napoleon Exposition Universelle Paris

1870 Bronze Medal at the NSW Agriculture Society

1875 Silver Medal for leather at the National

Agriculture Society

In May 1865 John with his wife and son George

travelled to England and Scotland but were all lost in

the wreck of the SS London in the Bay of Biscay in

January 1866

David took over management of the business

and purchased 1600 acres at Carrajung near the

Grand Ridge Rd., Gippsland. He named the property

Richmond Vale. Here he bred cattle and trotting

horses which he imported to build up his stud. He

was the first to import Aberdeen Angus cattle from

Scotland.

David’s imported American Champion Trotting stallion

‘Honesty’ won amongst many races the Australian

Trotting Championship in 1883. He was also awarded

First and Grand Champion prize in Agricultural Shows

from 1891 to 1894

Richmond Vale prospered and became something

of a showplace for being a smaller version of Como

in South Yarra. It was well known for its hospitality

and many visitors were entertained as house guests

including the Victorian Governor Lord Hopetoun in

1892 and Lady Brassey in 1898.

David was well known in the sporting world,

particularly Trotting and Coursing. He was a member

of the Victorian Coursing Club and always identified

himself with the sport. He was a Committee man and

Steward at Moonee Valley and a representative of

the National Coursing Club. He was recognised as an

excellent judge of a greyhound and an authority on

the sport. He imported the dog Pilot which ran a close

second in the first Australian Waterloo Cup in 1873.

He was a member of the Melbourne Cricket Club

and the Victorian Racing Club. The finely chased and

decorated silver mounted claret jug in the present

lot was won by David Clark at the Mt Aitken Private

Coursing Meeting with the dog ‘Telegraph’ in 1875.

After selling up Richmond Vale in 1905 David entered

hospital and passed away soon after.

NOTE

The son of a London silversmith and a

manufacturing silversmith, Edwards came to

Australia in 1857. Until about 1872 he ran a business

in Melbourne which supplied silverware to major

retailers with some objects imported from the family

business in London. From around 1873 to 1892,

Edwards worked in partnership with Alexander

Kaul. William Edwards’ workshop excelled in the

production of silver-mounted emu egg trophies and

is credited with making the earliest surviving piece.

The firm produced a number of silver claret jugs

during the 1860s and 1870s which were made in

many variations including richly repousséd pieces

and even emu and ostrich egg variations.

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

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.
