prior to the auction date.<br />

Complimentary printed catalogues are available at Gibson’s<br />

indicating a special clause associated with the sale of the<br />

item/s. Further information on symbols within our catalogues<br />

can be found on Page 1.<br />

Viewing<br />

Auction viewings are open to the public and usually take place<br />

All lots are guaranteed for fourteen (14) days from the<br />

Estimates<br />

Estimates are printed in the catalogue beside every lot and<br />

take into account rarity, condition, quality and provenance.<br />

The reserve is the amount at which the item is available for<br />

Bidding<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer four bidding options:<br />

1. Auction 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 />

Auctioneers & Valuers please bring photo identification, such<br />

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

2. Telephone Bidding<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & 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 Auctioneers & 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 />

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 />

Shirley Temple & Shirley Strauss in Los Angeles<br />

The Shirley Strauss Collection<br />

A CHARMED LIFE<br />

SHIRLEY STRAUSS (1925–2021)<br />

Born January 13, 1925, in Caulfield, Shirley<br />

Strauss was the youngest of three girls. Despite<br />

having strict parents, Shirley was born into a<br />

life of luxury, as the daughter of the founder of<br />

successful clothing firm Ellinson Bros., later<br />

known as Stafford Ellinson. Regularly driven to<br />

school in one of her family’s two Rolls Royces,<br />

Shirley sailed around the world on grand tour for<br />

an entire year at the age of 11 with her parents<br />

and two sisters; a rare opportunity for an 11<br />

year old at the time. Travelling across Europe<br />

and to the Americas, a particular highlight was<br />

having a car sent by 20th Century Fox Studios<br />

to collect her and take her to lunch with Shirley<br />

Temple whilst in Los Angeles.<br />

As a debutante, Shirley volunteered with the<br />

Red Cross, serving food in the canteen to the<br />

American military men in Australia, much to her<br />

parents’ distaste. Whilst the other ladies went<br />

dancing with the soldiers, Shirley was never<br />

allowed. She later said, ‘They were charming<br />

men and I fell in love with hundreds of them’. It<br />

was at this same age where she met Dr Maurice<br />

Strauss, a surgeon, at a dinner party. After<br />

only two dates into the courtship, and after a<br />

family lunch, Maurice whisked Shirley to the<br />

Dandenongs where said, ‘Don’t tell your mother<br />

I kissed you. I would like to spend the rest of my<br />

life with you’. Upon meeting with her mother’s<br />

approval, a year later they were married for<br />

32 years before Maurice’s death. She later<br />

remained with close family friend Robert Spry<br />

for the final 19 years of his life. ‘I have been very<br />

lucky having two wonderful men in my life’.<br />

Living a full life as a socialite, Shirley was known<br />

for her flamboyant style, reflected in her striking<br />

fashions and furs paired with elaborate jewels.<br />

With very cosmopolitan tastes, she lived in<br />

her whole floor parkside apartment in East<br />

Melbourne, since it was built in the 1970s to<br />

early 2021, ensconced amongst bold Florence<br />

Broadhurst wallpaper and a unique mixture of<br />

contemporary and traditional furniture, passing<br />

away at the age of 95.

NOTE<br />

Paul Mazaroz was an unusual<br />

character. Born in Lons-le-Saunier,<br />

friend of Gustave Courbet, Mazaroz<br />

was a patron of the arts and a sculptor,<br />

who also wrote sociological and<br />

economic essays.<br />

He worked in Riballeurís workshop<br />

in Paris and became his partner<br />

after marrying the man's daughter in<br />

1853. This partnership shifted the<br />

Ribailleur-Mazaroz company's focus<br />

towards modernity. Indeed, after<br />

the World's Fair of 1851, Mazaroz<br />

discovered how the English used<br />

machines for cabinet making and was<br />

the first to use them in France. Hence,<br />

he liked to call himself an 'industrial<br />

artist'. This desire to be grounded in<br />

the age and progress of his times was<br />

shown in the book of photography<br />

he produced to present his creations<br />

instead of a simple catalogue of<br />

engravings. Supplier of Napoleon III,<br />

his company was one of the most<br />

prosperous in France during the<br />

Second Empire and the 3rd Republic.<br />

The Geoffrey Stewardson Collection<br />

A chance invitation to join a friend in setting<br />

up a new Interior Decoration business to<br />

be named Marly <strong>Interiors</strong> in 1968, led to<br />

Geoffrey Stewardson’s involvement in the<br />

field of design. The business grew, and in<br />

1976 merged with Riddell <strong>Interiors</strong>, which the<br />

late Reg Riddell had founded in 1933. Now<br />

known as Riddell Marly the firm prospered<br />

through the 1970s, 80s and 90s, specialising<br />

at first in high-end residential work. Over<br />

time it increased its Interior Design work<br />

and its commercial client list included major<br />

law and accountancy firms, hospitals and<br />

private clubs. It was the oldest and longest<br />

established Interior Design and Decoration<br />

practice in Victoria, and possibly Australia.<br />

Geoffrey’s role as Managing Director from<br />

1968 was one of administration and project<br />

management, but during his 30-year<br />

involvement in the business, his interest in<br />

collecting and surrounding himself with an<br />

eclectic choice of art and furniture grew with<br />

his daily involvement in the field of Interior<br />

Design and Decoration. In the mid 1970’s he<br />

commissioned a country house in Central<br />

Victoria designed by Guilford Bell and the sale<br />

of the Collection started with the furnishing<br />

of this house, and later with Falls House,<br />

on Mt Macedon. The sale now presents an<br />

opportunity to acquire upholstered furniture of<br />

a quality generally not seen today, collectable<br />

timber furniture that spans three centuries,<br />

paintings and decorative pieces selected by<br />

Geoffrey over a period of 50 years.

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 Auction takes place. Neither Gibson's<br />

nor the Seller provides any guarantee in relation to<br />

the nature of the property apart from the Limited<br />

Warranty in the paragraph below.<br />

The property is otherwise sold “as is”.<br />

B) CATALOGUE AND OTHER DESCRIPTIONS<br />

All statements by Gibson's in the catalogue entry for<br />

the property or in the condition report, or made orally<br />

or in writing elsewhere, are statements of opinion<br />

and are not to be relied upon as statements of fact.<br />

Such statements do not constitute a representation,<br />

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

any kind. References in the catalogue entry to the<br />

condition report, including damage or restoration<br />

are for guidance only and should be evaluated by<br />

personal inspection by the Bidder or a knowledgeable<br />

representative. The absence of such a reference<br />

does not imply that an item is free from defects or<br />

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

imply the absence of any others. Estimates of the<br />

selling price should not be relied on as a statement<br />

that this is the price at which the item will sell or it’s<br />

value for any other purpose. Neither Gibson's nor the<br />

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

catalogue or any supplemental material.<br />

Images are measured height by width. Illustrations<br />

are provided only as a guide and should not be relied<br />

upon as a true representation of colour or condition.<br />

Images are not shown at a standard scale. Mention<br />

is rarely made of frames (which may be provided as<br />

supplementary images on the website) which do<br />

not form part of the Lot as described in the printed<br />

catalogue.<br />

All transactions are in Australian Dollars so there<br />

may be a small exchange rate risk, for international<br />

Buyers. The costs associated with acquiring a goods<br />

certificate will be borne by the Buyer. If the item<br />

turns out to be a Forgery or otherwise incorrectly<br />

described, all reasonable costs will be borne by the<br />

Seller.<br />

C) BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY<br />

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

warranty of any kind by Gibson's or the Seller. Buyers<br />

are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning<br />

the condition of the property and the matters referred<br />

to in the catalogue by requesting a condition report<br />

4. At the Sale<br />

A) REFUSAL OF ADMISSION<br />

Gibson's reserves the right at our complete discretion<br />

to refuse admission to the Auction premises or<br />

participation in any Auction and to reject any Bid.<br />

B) REGISTRATION BEFORE BIDDING<br />

Any new Prospective Buyer must complete and<br />

sign a registration form and provide photographic<br />

identification before Bidding. Gibson's may<br />

request bank, trade or other financial references to<br />

substantiate this registration.<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 />

Buyer's Premium and all applicable taxes, plus<br />

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

explicitly agreed in writing with Gibson's before<br />

the commencement of the Sale that the Bidder is<br />

acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party<br />

acceptable to Gibson's and that Gibson's will only<br />

look to the principal for payment.<br />

D) INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATIONS<br />

All international clients not known to Gibson's will<br />

be required to scan or fax through an accredited<br />

form of photo identification and pay a deposit at our<br />

discretion in cleared funds into Gibson's account<br />

at least 48 hours before the commencement of<br />

the Auction. Bids will not be accepted without<br />

this deposit. Gibson's also reserves the right to<br />

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

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 will use reasonable efforts to execute written<br />

Bids delivered to us at least 24 hours prior to the<br />

Sale for the convenience of those clients who are<br />

unable to attend the Auction in person. If Gibson's<br />

receives identical written Bids on a particular Lot, and<br />

at the Auction these are the highest Bids on that Lot,<br />

then the Lot will be sold to the person whose written<br />

Bid was received and accepted first. Execution of<br />

written Bids is a free service undertaken subject to<br />

other commitments at the time of the Sale and we<br />

do not accept liability for failing to execute a written<br />

Bid or for errors or omissions which may arise. It is<br />

the Bidder’s responsibility to check with Gibson's<br />

after the Auction if they were successful. Unlimited<br />

or “Buy” Bids will not be accepted. Please refer to our<br />

indicative Bidding increments below for appropriate<br />

absentee Bid amounts (Section K).<br />

F) TELEPHONE BIDS<br />

Priority will be given to overseas and interstate<br />

Bidders. Arrangements for this service must be<br />

confirmed at least 24 hours prior to the Auction<br />

commencing. Gibson's accepts no responsibility<br />

whatsoever for any errors or failure to execute Bids.<br />

In telephone Bidding the Buyer agrees to be bound<br />

by all terms and conditions listed here and accepts<br />

that Gibson's cannot be held responsible for any<br />

miscommunications in the process. The success<br />

circumstances that are unforeseen. Buyers should<br />

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

should contact be unsuccessful at the time of<br />

Auction. You must advise Gibson's of the Lots in<br />

question and recommend a ‘Cover Bid’ amount<br />

H) RESERVES<br />

Unless otherwise indicated, all Lots are offered<br />

subject to a Reserve, which is the confidential<br />

minimum price below which the Lot will not be sold.<br />

The Reserve will not exceed the low estimate printed<br />

in the catalogue. The Auctioneer may open the<br />

Bidding on any Lot below the Reserve by placing<br />

a Bid on behalf of the Seller. The Auctioneer may<br />

continue to Bid on behalf of Seller up to the amount<br />

of the Reserve, either by placing consecutive Bids or<br />

by placing Bids in response to other Bidders.<br />

I) AUCTIONEERS DISCRETION<br />

The Auctioneer 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<br />

after the Sale, to determine the successful Bidder,<br />

to continue the Bidding, to cancel the Sale or to<br />

re-offer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute<br />

arises after the Sale, then Gibson's Sale record is<br />

conclusive.<br />

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

Subject to the Auctioneer’s discretion, on the<br />

acceptance of a Bid by the fall of the Auctioneer's<br />

hammer, a contract of sale is made between the<br />

Seller and the Buyer. Risk and responsibility for the<br />

Lot (including frames or glass where relevant) passes<br />

immediately to the Buyer. Gibson's shall not be liable<br />

for any breach of contract by either the Seller or<br />

the Buyer.<br />

K) INDICATIVE BIDDING STEPS, ETC.<br />

withdraw any Lot from Sale, to place a Reserve on<br />

any Lot and to advance the Bidding according to<br />

Absentee Bids must follow these increments and any<br />

Bids that don’t follow the steps will be rounded up to<br />

the nearest acceptable Bid.<br />

5. After the Sale<br />

A) BUYER'S PREMIUM<br />

In addition to the Hammer Price, the Buyer agrees<br />

to pay to Gibson's the Buyer's Premium. The Buyer's<br />

Premium is 22% of the Hammer Price plus GST.<br />

B) ONLINE SURCHARGE<br />

In the case where the Buyer purchases via online<br />

Bidding platforms, the Buyer agrees to pay the online<br />

Bidding surcharge of 2% (Gibsons.com.au) or 5%<br />

The Buyer will not acquire title for the Lot until<br />

D) COLLECTION OF PURCHASES & INSURANCE<br />

Gibson's is entitled to retain items sold until all<br />

amounts due to us have been received in full in good<br />

cleared funds. Subject to this, the Buyer shall collect<br />

purchased Lots within three (3) days from the date of<br />

the Sale unless otherwise agreed in writing between<br />

Gibson's and the Buyer.<br />

At the fall of the hammer, insurance is the<br />

responsibility of the purchaser.<br />

E) PACKING, HANDLING AND SHIPPING<br />

At the request of the Buyer, Gibson's may assist with<br />

packing of goods but takes no responsibility for loss,<br />

damage or breakage that may occur.<br />

Gibson's at the request of the Buyer may arrange<br />

for a carrier, packer or shipper to have the property<br />

packed, insured and shipped at the Buyer’s<br />

expense. All packing, shipping, insurance, postage &<br />

associated charges will be borne by the purchaser.<br />

Gibson's can assist with removal companies that the<br />

Buyer can use but takes no responsibility whatsoever<br />

for the actions of any recommended third party.<br />

F) CULTURAL HERITAGE EXPORT LICENCES<br />

Unless otherwise agreed by Gibson's in writing, the<br />

fact that the Buyer wishes to apply for an export<br />

licence does not affect their obligation to make full<br />

payment immediately, nor Gibson's right to charge<br />

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

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

Protection of Moveable Cultural Heritage Act 1986<br />

prior to purchase. Export/import licences applications<br />

are the responsibility of the Buyer and/or the Buyer's<br />

nominated shipper. Gibson's shall not be obliged to<br />

rescind a Sale nor to refund any expenses incurred by<br />

the Buyer in circumstances where an export licence<br />

is not granted.<br />

G) REMEDIES FOR NON-PAYMENT<br />

If the Buyer fails to make full payment immediately,<br />

Gibson's is entitled to exercise one or more of the<br />

following rights or remedies (in addition to asserting<br />

any other rights or remedies available under the law)<br />

i) to charge interest at the ANZ visa credit card<br />

rate as published weekly in the Australian<br />

Financial Review;<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

iv)<br />

to hold the defaulting Buyer liable for the<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 />

permitted under applicable law;<br />

to cancel the Sale;<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 defaulting Buyer can have no claim upon<br />

Gibson's in the event that the Lot(s) are sold for<br />

an amount greater than the original invoiced<br />

amount;<br />

vi)<br />

to offset against any amounts which Gibson's<br />

may owe the Buyer across any other<br />

transactions;<br />

viii) to reject at any future Auction any Bids made by<br />

or on behalf of the Buyer or to obtain a deposit<br />

from the Buyer prior to accepting any Bids;<br />

ix)<br />

to exercise all the rights and remedies of a<br />

person holding security over any property in<br />

our possession owned by the Buyer whether by<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. The<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 deem<br />

necessary or appropriate.<br />

H) FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES<br />

Where purchases are not collected within three (3)<br />

days from the Sale date, whether or not payment has<br />

been made, Gibson's shall be permitted to:<br />

i) remove, store and further insure the Lot at the<br />

expense of the Buyer, releasing only after full<br />

payment has been received from the Buyer for<br />

incurred costs;<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

re-sell the Lot without Reserve by Auction,<br />

private treaty or any other means whereby the<br />

Buyer agrees not to challenge the resale price<br />

achieved<br />

rescind the Sale of that Lot or any other Lot sold<br />

by the Seller to the Buyer at the same or any<br />

other Auction<br />

If Gibson's do re-sell the property under clauses H<br />

and G, the defaulting Buyer agrees to be liable for<br />

all payments of any deficiency between the total<br />

amount originally due and the price obtained, as well<br />

as the legal as all costs, expenses, damages, legal<br />

fees, commissions and premiums of whatever kinds<br />

associated with both Sales or otherwise arising from<br />

the default.<br />

6. Extent of Gibson's Liability<br />

Gibson's agrees to refund the purchase price in<br />

the circumstances of the Limited Warranty set out<br />

in paragraph 7. Apart from that, neither the Seller<br />

nor we, nor any of our employees or agents are<br />

responsible for the correctness of any statement of<br />

whatever kind concerning any Lot, whether written<br />

or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in<br />

description or for any faults or defects in any Lots.<br />

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

Seller ourselves, our officers, agents or employees<br />

give any representation warranty or guarantee or<br />

assume any liability of any kind in respect of any<br />

Lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a<br />

particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition,<br />

attribution, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium,<br />

provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical<br />

relevance. Except as required by local law any<br />

warranty of any kind is excluded by this paragraph.


106<br />

7. Limited Warranty<br />

Subject to the terms and conditions of this<br />

paragraph, the warrants for the period of fourteen<br />

(14) days from the date of the Sale that any property<br />

described in this catalogue (noting such description<br />

may be amended by any Saleroom notice or<br />

announcement) which is stated without qualification<br />

to be the work of a named author or authorship is<br />

authentic and not a forgery. The term “Author” or<br />

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

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

may be, with which the creation of such property is<br />

identified in the catalogue.<br />

The 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 when the Lot was sold at Auction.<br />

the original Buyer must have remained the owner<br />

of the Lot without disposing of any interest in it<br />

to any third party<br />

The Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy against<br />

the Seller in place of any other remedy which<br />

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

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

price paid for the Lot less the Buyer's Premium<br />

which is non refundable. Neither the Seller nor<br />

Gibson's will be liable for any special, incidental<br />

nor consequential damages including, without<br />

limitation, loss of profits not for interest.<br />

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

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

the Auction. The Seller shall have the right, to<br />

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

by recognised experts in the field, mutually<br />

acceptable to the Buyer and Gibson's to<br />

decide whether or not to cancel the Sale under<br />

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 />

court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part<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 />

9. Copyright<br />

The copyright of all images, illustrations and written<br />

material produced by Gibson's relating to a Lot<br />

including the contents of this catalogue, is and shall<br />

remain the property at all times of Gibson's and<br />

shall not be used by the Buyer, nor by anyone else<br />

without our prior written consent. Gibson's and the<br />

Seller make no representation or warranty that the<br />

Buyer of a property will acquire any copyright or other<br />

reproduction rights in it.<br />

10. Law and Jurisdiction<br />

These terms and conditions and any matters<br />

concerned with the foregoing fall within the exclusive<br />

jurisdiction of the courts of the state in which the<br />

Auction is held.<br />

11. Pre-Sale Estimates<br />

Gibson's publishes with each catalogue our opinion<br />

as to the estimated price range for each Lot. These<br />

estimates are approximate prices only and are not<br />

intended to be definitive. They are prepared well in<br />

advance of the Sale and may be subject to revision.<br />

Interested parties should contact Gibson's prior to<br />

Auction for updated pre-Sale estimates and starting<br />

prices.<br />

12. Sale results<br />

After the Sale, Gibson's may publish (both verbally<br />

and in writing) the results of Sale at our discretion,<br />

including the prices achieved for specific Lots.<br />

Unless otherwise discussed with the Buyer, details of<br />

individual Buyers will remain confidential.<br />

13. Goods and Service Tax<br />

In accordance with A New Tax System (Goods and<br />

Services Tax) Act 1999, Gibson's Auctions will collect<br />

on behalf of the Australian Tax Office (ATO) a Goods<br />

and Service Tax (GST) of 10% on all applicable<br />

transactions.<br />

GST is applicable on the Hammer Price in the case<br />

where the Seller is selling property that is owned by<br />

an entity registered for GST. GST is also applicable<br />

on the Hammer Price in the case where the Seller is<br />

not an Australian resident. These Lots are denoted<br />

by a dagger symbol † placed next to the estimate.<br />

GST is also applicable on the Buyer's Premium.<br />

Overseas Buyers and non-resident Buyers in Australia<br />

will not be charged GST on both Hammer Price and<br />

Premiums under the following conditions:<br />

1. The items are exported through a Gibson's<br />

approved freight company including Australia<br />

Post<br />

2. The items are exported within 60 days of the<br />

date of the Sale<br />

The invoice supplied by Gibson's for purchases will be<br />

regarded as a Tax invoice for GST purposes.<br />

14. Resale Royalty Scheme<br />

Under the legal obligations of the Resale Royalty<br />

Scheme for Visual Artists Act 2009, Sellers must<br />

provide the following information to comply with<br />

the act:<br />

• was the artwork acquired after 8 June 2010?<br />

• is the Sale/Reserve price (including GST) $1,000<br />

or more?<br />

• is the artist from Australia or a country listed in<br />

the Regulations to the Act?<br />

• is the artist alive, or deceased less than 70<br />

years?<br />

The Seller:<br />

i) acknowledges that he or she understands his or<br />

her legal obligations under the Resale Royalty for<br />

Visual Artists Act 2009 (the Act);<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

iv)<br />

undertakes to comply with all requirements of<br />

the Act, including by providing its agent, the<br />

company, with accurate information sufficient for<br />

compliance with sections 28 and 29 of the Act;<br />

undertakes to indemnify the company for any<br />

loss incurred by the company as a result of<br />

the vendor’s failure to comply with any of the<br />

vendor’s legal obligations under the Act; and<br />

acknowledges that if he or she fails to comply<br />

with any of his or her legal obligations under<br />

the Act, the company may provide the vendor’s<br />

name and contact details to Copyright Agency<br />

Limited (CAL).<br />

Lots subject to payment of the Resale Royalty<br />

Scheme will be denoted by the symbol §. The<br />

Australian Resale Royalty is a flat rate of 5% on the<br />

Hammer Price (including GST). The Australian Resale<br />

Royalty is payable by the Seller in addition to the<br />

Buyer's Premium plus any applicable GST.<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. These treatments may be<br />

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

reserve their appearance. Buyers should assume that<br />

each Lot has been subject to some form of treatment<br />

and that the estimates reflect this.<br />

A number of laboratories issue certificates that give<br />

detailed descriptions of gemstones, and in the event<br />

that Gibson's has been supplied with or obtained<br />

certificates for any Lot, this shall be noted in the<br />

catalogue. However, as there may not be consensus<br />

between different laboratories on the degree, or<br />

types of treatment of the gemstones, Gibson's<br />

supplies these without warranty.<br />

Buyers should assume that all gemstones sold<br />

by Gibson's may have been subjected to such<br />

treatments, and that the catalogue estimates reflect<br />

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 may have been subjected to such<br />

treatments, and that the catalogue estimates reflect<br />

this.<br />

WATCHES<br />

Please note: All watches sold by Gibson's are sold on<br />

an “as is” basis. Gibson's makes no representation<br />

or warranty that any watch is in working order. Many<br />

watches have been repaired over their lifetime and<br />

may contain non-original parts. The absence of any<br />

reference to the condition of a watch does not imply<br />

that the Lot is in good condition and without defects,<br />

repairs or restorations. Buyers should be aware that<br />

a general service, change of battery or further repair<br />

work, for which the Buyer is solely responsible for,<br />

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

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

this information as to its accuracy.
