Bidding<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers offer four bidding options:<br />

1. <strong>Auction</strong> Room Bidding<br />

To bid in person we suggest you arrive early so that you<br />

have sufficient time to register for a bidding number prior<br />

to the auction. If this is your first time bidding with Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers please bring photo identification, such<br />

as a driver’s licence or passport with you.<br />

2. Telephone Bidding<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers offer telephone bidding on all<br />

lots, at all auctions.<br />

Telephone Bidding is a convenient solution if you are unable to<br />

attend an auction in person. A Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers<br />

staff member will call you approximately 5 lots in advance and<br />

with your instruction, bid on your behalf at the auction.<br />

Please note: Telephone Bids must be organised at least 24<br />

hours prior to the auction and that occasionally, the number<br />

of telephone bidders available may be restricted when the<br />

auction is offsite.<br />

To organise a Telephone Bid please follow the link<br />

to the Telephone Bidding form on our website:<br />

www.gibsonsauctions.com.au.<br />

Please fill in & return via email to mail@gibsonsauctions.com.au<br />

Valuers, an email address is to be supplied when you submit<br />

your Telephone Bid, along with clear Photo ID verifying<br />

your address.

3. Absentee Bids<br />

Absentee Bidding is another convenient solution if you<br />

are unable to attend an auction in person, to speak on the<br />

telephone or if you simply have a strict budget.<br />

An Absentee Bid should be set at the maximum amount<br />

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

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

the bid recorded on your form, the lot will be sold to you for<br />

the lesser hammer price.<br />

Please note Absentee Bids must be received at least 24 hours<br />

prior to the auction to allow time for processing.<br />

To organise an Absentee Bid please follow the link to<br />

Please register for this service at least 24 hours prior to the<br />

<strong>The</strong> Collection of Billie Tyrrell<br />

Kathleen Patricia Ince, known always as<br />

Billie, was born in Malvern in 1924. She<br />

spent most of her early life at Katanga,<br />

an elegant home designed by prominent<br />

architect Harold Desbrowe-Annear, which<br />

still stands in Glenferrie Road. Katanga<br />

was built by her father Wesley Armstrong<br />

Ince, a prominent lawyer, who, with his wife<br />

Elsie, loved to entertain. Billie and her sister<br />

Betty were brought up surrounded by fine<br />

art, furnishings, china and silver which was<br />

the basis of her love for beautiful things,<br />

particularly antiques and silver.<br />

Despite the War, the Ince sisters were very<br />

social and often featured in the papers,<br />

known as some of Melbourne’s best<br />

dressed. Billie attended finishing school at<br />

Invergowrie before studying physiotherapy<br />

at Melbourne University and, shortly after<br />

graduating, moved to practice in London.<br />

In 1957 Billie married Harry Tyrrell, a<br />

former Naval Lieutenant and the founder<br />

of National Can Industries. <strong>The</strong>y had two<br />

children, Alexandra and Michael. Together<br />

they built, and lived in, houses in Toorak,<br />

then Hawthorn, before retiring to a life spent<br />

between an elegant apartment in Clivedon,<br />

East Melbourne and a farming property on<br />

the Gippsland Lakes, satisfying Billie’s love of<br />

horses and Harry’s love of the sea.<br />

During her long marriage to Harry, Billie<br />

became increasingly passionate, and<br />

knowledgeable, about sterling silver<br />

and porcelain. She amassed substantial<br />

collections both locally and during their<br />

extensive travels to Europe, the UK<br />

and New Zealand.<br />

Billie died at the age of 93.

A gilt bronze figure of Avalokitesvara<br />

Qing dynasty, 18th century<br />

the deity with eleven heads standing in samabhanga on<br />

a later lotus base, with eight arms extended in various<br />

mudras or holding an attribute, wearing a dhoti, jewellery<br />

and a trailing scarf, the principal hands held in anjalimudra<br />

before the chest, the faces with serene expressions apart<br />

from the one head with fierce expression<br />

18cm high overall<br />

<strong>The</strong> eleven headed Avalokitesvara is an esoteric form<br />

of the Bodhisattva, believed to have overcome eleven<br />

hardships in order to attain Buddhahood. Another<br />

explanation is that Avalokistesvara fails to fulfil his vow of<br />

saving all sentient souls from hell and his head splits into<br />

one hundred pieces. Amitabha Buddha gathered up the<br />

pieces and consolidated them into ten heads crowning<br />

them with one of his own to show that Amitabha is always<br />

there to aid him in his goal of universal salvation<br />

agree to be bound by these terms.<br />

1. Background to the Terms used in<br />

these Conditions<br />

<strong>The</strong> conditions that are listed below contain terms<br />

that are used regularly and may need explanation.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y are as follows:<br />

“the Buyer” means the person with the highest bid<br />

accepted by the <strong>Auction</strong>eer<br />

“the Lot” means any item depicted within the sale for<br />

auction and in particular the item or items described<br />

against any lot number in the catalogue.<br />

“the Hammer price” means the amount of the highest<br />

bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to a lot<br />

“the Buyers Premium” means the charge payable by<br />

the Buyer to the auction house as a percentage of<br />

the hammer price.<br />

“the Reserve” means the lowest amount at which<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers has agreed with the<br />

Seller that the lot can be sold.<br />

“Forgery” means an item constituting an imitation<br />

originally conceived and executed as a whole, with<br />

a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship,<br />

origin, age, period, culture or source, where the<br />

correct description as to such matters is not<br />

reflected by the description in the catalogue.<br />

Accordingly no lot shall be capable of being a forgery<br />

by reason of any damage or restoration work of any<br />

kind (Including re-painting).<br />

“the insured value” means the amount that Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers in its absolute discretion<br />

from time to time shall consider the value for which<br />

a lot should be covered for insurance (whether or<br />

not insurance is arranged by Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers<br />

& Valuers.)<br />

All values expressed in Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers &<br />

Valuers Pty Ltd catalogues (in any format) are in<br />

Australian Dollars (AU$). All bids, “hammer price”,<br />

“reserves”, “Buyers Premium” and other expressions<br />

of value are understood by all parties to be in<br />

Australian Dollars (AU$) unless otherwise specified.<br />

2. Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>s as Agent<br />

Except as otherwise stated Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers &<br />

Valuers Pty Ltd acts as agent for the Seller.<br />

<strong>The</strong> contract for the sale of the property is therefore<br />

made between the Seller and the Buyer.<br />

3. Before the Sale<br />

A) EXAMINATION OF PROPERTY<br />

Prospective Buyers are strongly advised to examine<br />

in person any property in which they are interested<br />

before the <strong>Auction</strong> takes place. Neither Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers nor the Seller provides any<br />

guarantee in relation to the nature of the property<br />

apart from the Limited warranty in the paragraph<br />

below.<br />

<strong>The</strong> property is otherwise sold “AS IS”<br />

B) CATALOGUE AND OTHER DESCRIPTIONS<br />

All statements by Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers<br />

in the catalogue entry for the property or in the<br />

condition report, or made orally or in writing<br />

elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not<br />

to be relied upon as statements of fact. Such<br />

statements do not constitute a representation,<br />

warranty or assumption of liability by Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers of any kind. References in the<br />

catalogue entry to the condition report to damage<br />

or restoration are for guidance only and should be<br />

evaluated by personal inspection by the bidder or<br />

a knowledgeable representative. <strong>The</strong> absence of<br />

such a reference does not imply that an item is free<br />

from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to<br />

particular defects imply the absence of any others.<br />

Estimates of the selling price should not be relied<br />

on as a statement that this is the price at which<br />

the item will sell or it’s value for any other purpose.<br />

Neither Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers nor <strong>The</strong><br />

Seller is responsible for any errors or omissions in the<br />

catalogue or any supplemental material.<br />

Images are measured height by width (sight size).<br />

Illustrations are provided only as a guide and should<br />

not be relied upon as a true representation of colour<br />

or condition. Images are not shown at a standard<br />

scale. Mention is rarely made of frames (which may be<br />

provided as supplementary images on the website)<br />

which do not form part of the lot as described in the<br />

printed catalogue.<br />

Foreign buyers should note that all transactions<br />

are in Australian dollars (AU$)so there may be a<br />

small exchange rate risk. <strong>The</strong> costs associated<br />

with acquiring a good certificate will be carried by<br />

the purchaser. If the item turns out to be forged or<br />

otherwise incorrectly described, all reasonable costs<br />

will be borne by the vendor.<br />

C) BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY<br />

All property is sold “as is” without representation<br />

or warranty of any kind by Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers<br />

& Valuers or the Seller. Buyers are responsible for<br />

satisfying themselves concerning the condition<br />

of the property and the matters referred to in the<br />

catalogue by requesting a condition report<br />

A) REFUSAL OF ADMISSION<br />

C) BIDDING AS A PRINCIPAL<br />

When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal<br />

liability to pay the purchase price including the<br />

buyers premium and all applicable taxes, plus all<br />

other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly<br />

agreed in writing with Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers<br />

before the commencement of the sale that the<br />

bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified<br />

third party acceptable to Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers &<br />

Valuers and that Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers will<br />

only look to the principal for payment.<br />

D) INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATIONS<br />

Bids will not be accepted without this deposit.<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers also reserves the<br />

right to request any additional forms of identification<br />

prior to registering an overseas bid.<br />

This deposit can be made using a credit card,<br />

however the balance of any purchase price in excess<br />

of $5,000 can not be charged to this card without<br />

prior arrangement. This deposit is redeemable<br />

against any auction purchase.<br />

E) ABSENTEE BIDS<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers will use reasonable<br />

efforts to execute written bids delivered to us AT<br />

LEAST 24 Hours before the sale for the convenience<br />

of those clients who are unable to attend the auction<br />

in person. If we receive identical written bids on a<br />

particular lot, and at the auction these are the highest<br />

bids on that lot, then the lot will be sold to the person<br />

whose written bid was received and accepted first.<br />

Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken<br />

subject to other commitments at the time of the sale<br />

and we do not accept liability for failing to execute<br />

a written bid or for errors or omissions which may<br />

arise. It is the bidder’s responsibility to check with<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers after the auction if<br />

they were successful. Unlimited or “Buy” bids will not<br />

be accepted. Please refer to our indicative bidding<br />

amounts (Section K).<br />

listed here and accepts that Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers<br />

& Valuers cannot be held responsible for any<br />

mis-communications in the process. <strong>The</strong> success<br />

of telephone bidding cannot be guaranteed due to<br />

circumstances that are unforeseen. Buyers should<br />

be aware of the risk and accept the consequences<br />

changes to descriptions, withdrawals or any other<br />

sale room notices.<br />

responsibility for any errors, failure to execute bids or<br />

any other miscommunications regarding this process.<br />

accuracy of the relevant information regarding bids,<br />

lot numbers and contact details.<br />

H) RESERVES<br />

Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject<br />

to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price<br />

below which the Lot will not be sold. <strong>The</strong> reserve will<br />

not exceed the low estimate printed in the catalogue.<br />

<strong>The</strong> auctioneer may open the bidding on any Lot<br />

below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the<br />

Seller. <strong>The</strong> auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf<br />

of seller up to the amount of the reserve, either<br />

by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in<br />

response to other bidders.<br />

I) AUCTIONEERS DISCRETION<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Auction</strong>eer has the right at his absolute and sole<br />

discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding<br />

in such a manner as he may decide, to withdraw or<br />

divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and,<br />

in the case or error or dispute and whether during or


165<br />

after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to<br />

continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer<br />

and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises<br />

after the sale, then Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers’s<br />

sale record is conclusive.<br />

J) SUCCESSFUL BID AND PASSING OF RISK<br />

Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the highest<br />

bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer<br />

and the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance<br />

of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract<br />

for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Risk and<br />

responsibility for the lot (including frames or glass<br />

where relevant) passes immediately to the Buyer.<br />

E) CULTURAL HERITAGE EXPORT LICENCES<br />

Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the fact<br />

that the buyer wishes to apply for an export licence<br />

does not affect his or her obligation to make full<br />

payment immediately, nor our right to charge<br />

interest or storage charges on late payment. It<br />

is the Buyer’s responsibility to check Australia’s<br />

Protection of Moveable Cultural Heritage Act 1986<br />

before purchase. If the Buyer requests Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers to apply for an export licence<br />

total amount due and to commence legal<br />

proceedings for it’s recovery along with interest,<br />

legal fees and costs to the fullest extent<br />

to resell the property publicly or privately on<br />

such terms as we see fit<br />

v) to pay the Seller an amount up to the net<br />

proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid<br />

by the defaulting Buyer. In these circumstances<br />

the item(s) are sold for an amount greater than<br />

the original invoiced amount.<br />

vi)<br />

vii)<br />

to set off against any amounts which Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers may owe the Buyer in<br />

any other transactions, the outstanding amount<br />

remaining unpaid by the Buyer.<br />

where several amounts are owed by the Buyer to<br />

us, in respect of different transactions, to apply<br />

any amount paid to discharge any amount owed<br />

in respect of any particular transaction, whether<br />

way of pledge, security interest or in any other<br />

way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of<br />

the place where such property is located. <strong>The</strong><br />

Buyer will be deemed to have been granted such<br />

security to us and we may retain such property<br />

as collateral security for such Buyer’s obligations<br />

to us.<br />

x) to take such other action as Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers deem necessary or<br />

appropriate<br />

If we do sell the property under paragraph<br />

(iv), then the defaulting Buyer shall be liable<br />

for payment of any deficiency between the<br />

total amount originally due to us and the<br />

price obtained upon reselling as well as for<br />

all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and<br />

commissions and premiums of whatever kinds<br />

associated with both sales or otherwise arising<br />

from the default.<br />

concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor<br />

for any other errors or omissions in description<br />

or for any faults or defects in any lots. Except as<br />

stated in paragraph 7 below, neither the Seller<br />

ourselves, our officers, agents or employees give any<br />

any property described in this catalogue (noting<br />

such description may be amended by any saleroom<br />

notice or announcement) which is stated without<br />

qualification to be the work of a named author or


166<br />

authorship is authentic and not a forgery. <strong>The</strong> term<br />

“Author” or “authorship” refers to the creator of the<br />

property or to the period, culture, source, or origin<br />

as the case may be, with which the creation of such<br />

property is identified in the catalogue.<br />

<strong>The</strong> warranty is subject to the following:<br />

i) it does not apply where a) the catalogue<br />

description or saleroom notice corresponded<br />

to the generally accepted opinion of scholars<br />

and experts at the date of the sale or fairly<br />

indicated that there was a conflict of opinions,<br />

or b) correct identification of a lot can be<br />

demonstrated only by means of a scientific<br />

process not generally accepted for use until<br />

after publication of the catalogue or a process<br />

which at the date of the publication of the<br />

catalogue was unreasonably expensive or<br />

impractical or likely to have caused damage to<br />

the property.<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

iv)<br />

the benefits of the warranty are not assignable<br />

and shall apply only to the original buyer of the<br />

lot as shown on the invoice originally issued by<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers when the lot was<br />

sold at <strong>Auction</strong>.<br />

the Original Buyer must have remained the<br />

owner of the lot without disposing of any interest<br />

in it to any third party<br />

might be available, is the cancellation of the sale<br />

and the refund of the original purchase price<br />

paid for the lot less the buyers premium which is<br />

non refundable. Neither the Seller nor Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers will be liable for any<br />

special, incidental nor consequential damages<br />

including, without limitation, loss of profits not for<br />

interest.<br />

v) <strong>The</strong> Buyer must give written notice of claim<br />

to us within fourteen (14) days of the date of<br />

to require the Buyer to obtain two written<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers to decide whether or not<br />

to cancel the sale under warranty.<br />

vi)<br />

the Buyer must return the lot to Seller in the<br />

same condition that it was purchased.<br />

8. Severability<br />

If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any<br />

shall be discounted and the rest of the Conditions<br />

shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent<br />

permitted by law.<br />

15. Jewels & Watches<br />

GEMSTONES<br />

Gemstones have historically been subjected to a<br />

variety of treatments to enhance their appearance.<br />

Sapphire and rubies are routinely heat treated to<br />

improve their colour and clarity, similarly emeralds<br />

are frequently treated with oils or resin for the same<br />

purpose. Other treatments such as staining or dyeing,<br />

irradiation, filling or coating may have been used<br />

on other precious and semi-precious gemstones<br />

and organic material. <strong>The</strong>se treatments may be<br />

permanent, whilst others may need special care to<br />

preserve their appearance. Buyers should assume<br />

that each lot has been subject to some form of<br />

treatment and that the estimates reflect this.<br />

A number of laboratories issue certificates that<br />

give detailed descriptions of gemstones, and in<br />

the event that Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers has<br />

been supplied with or obtained certificates for any<br />

lot, this shall be noted in the catalogue. However,<br />

as there may not be consensus between different<br />

laboratories on the degree, or types of treatment<br />

of the gemstones, Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers<br />

supplies these without warranty.<br />

Buyers should assume that all gemstones sold by<br />

Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers may have been<br />

subjected to such treatments, and that the catalogue<br />

estimates reflect this.<br />

PEARLS<br />

Pearls, like gemstones, are also subject to various<br />

treatments. Buyers should assume that any pearls<br />

sold by Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers may have<br />

been subjected to such treatments, and that the<br />

catalogue estimates reflect this.<br />

WATCHES<br />

Please note: All watches sold by Gibson’s<br />

<strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers are sold on an “as is”<br />

basis. Gibson’s <strong>Auction</strong>eers & Valuers makes no<br />

representation or warranty that any watch is in<br />

working order. Many watches have been repaired<br />

over their lifetime and may contain non-original parts.<br />

<strong>The</strong> absence of any reference to the condition of a<br />

watch does not imply that the lot is in good condition<br />

and without defects, repairs or restorations. Buyers<br />

should be aware that a general service, change of<br />

battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is<br />

solely responsible for, may be necessary.<br />

ESTIMATED WEIGHTS<br />

If a stone has a known weight, it has been weighed<br />

out of the mount. If a stone has an estimated weight,<br />

it is an approximate weight only and has been<br />

measured by us in the mount and is a statement of<br />

opinion only. <strong>The</strong> information is given as a guide only<br />

and Buyers should satisfy themselves with regard to<br />

this information as to its accuracy.
