The Collection of Billie Tyrrell

Kathleen Patricia Ince, known always as

Billie, was born in Malvern in 1924. She

spent most of her early life at Katanga,

an elegant home designed by prominent

architect Harold Desbrowe-Annear, which

still stands in Glenferrie Road. Katanga

was built by her father Wesley Armstrong

Ince, a prominent lawyer, who, with his wife

Elsie, loved to entertain. Billie and her sister

Betty were brought up surrounded by fine

art, furnishings, china and silver which was

the basis of her love for beautiful things,

particularly antiques and silver.

Despite the War, the Ince sisters were very

social and often featured in the papers,

known as some of Melbourne’s best

dressed. Billie attended finishing school at

Invergowrie before studying physiotherapy

at Melbourne University and, shortly after

graduating, moved to practice in London.

In 1957 Billie married Harry Tyrrell, a

former Naval Lieutenant and the founder

of National Can Industries. They had two

children, Alexandra and Michael. Together

they built, and lived in, houses in Toorak,

then Hawthorn, before retiring to a life spent

between an elegant apartment in Clivedon,

East Melbourne and a farming property on

the Gippsland Lakes, satisfying Billie’s love of

horses and Harry’s love of the sea.

During her long marriage to Harry, Billie

became increasingly passionate, and

knowledgeable, about sterling silver

and porcelain. She amassed substantial

collections both locally and during their

extensive travels to Europe, the UK

and New Zealand.

Billie died at the age of 93.

A gilt bronze figure of Avalokitesvara

Qing dynasty, 18th century

the deity with eleven heads standing in samabhanga on

a later lotus base, with eight arms extended in various

mudras or holding an attribute, wearing a dhoti, jewellery

and a trailing scarf, the principal hands held in anjalimudra

before the chest, the faces with serene expressions apart

from the one head with fierce expression

18cm high overall

The eleven headed Avalokitesvara is an esoteric form

of the Bodhisattva, believed to have overcome eleven

hardships in order to attain Buddhahood. Another

explanation is that Avalokistesvara fails to fulfil his vow of

saving all sentient souls from hell and his head splits into

one hundred pieces. Amitabha Buddha gathered up the

pieces and consolidated them into ten heads crowning

them with one of his own to show that Amitabha is always

there to aid him in his goal of universal salvation

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

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

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

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


165

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.

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

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


166

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

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

concerned with the foregoing fall within the exclusive

jurisdiction of the courts of the state in which the

auction is held.

updated pre-sale estimates and starting prices.

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.
