Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers offer telephone bidding on<br />

all lots, at all auctions.<br />

at the auction.<br />

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

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

the lesser hammer price.<br />

<strong>Graham</strong> <strong>Geddes</strong><br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Grand</strong> <strong>Tour</strong><br />

Stepping from the bustle and clamour of High<br />

Street Armadale into the exotic world of <strong>Graham</strong><br />

<strong>Geddes</strong> with its moody fragrant interiors, rich<br />

with tapestries, furniture, myriad sparkling<br />

chandeliers, gilded mirrors, and objects from<br />

the Mediterranean to the Orient, transports us<br />

to a world like no other. Established in 1972, the<br />

sprawling premises with its commanding and<br />

theatrical window displays takes the visitor on a<br />

journey, informed by one man’s taste and vision.<br />

With his formidable passion for history, myths<br />

and stories, the Classics, antiquities, oriental<br />

porcelain and sculpture, for travel, for food, for<br />

life; for his love of Italy especially, and for places<br />

less travelled, <strong>Graham</strong> <strong>Geddes</strong> is, in essence,<br />

the modern embodiment of a <strong>Grand</strong> <strong>Tour</strong>ist. He<br />

has and continues to relish every opportunity to<br />

take the <strong>Tour</strong>, marvelling at, learning about, and<br />

acquiring artefacts for his eponymous emporium.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Grand</strong> <strong>Tour</strong>, the phenomenon of early<br />

travel, enlightened, enriched, and educated<br />

many a well to do young English gentleman<br />

during its heyday in the 18th century. <strong>The</strong> heady<br />

experiences of Italy in particular, the ‘cradle of<br />

civilisation’, (and for the more intrepid <strong>Grand</strong><br />

<strong>Tour</strong>ist, Greece) were to indelibly inform the<br />

cultural, architectural, artistic, gastronomic,<br />

and social practices of many.<br />

Eager traveller Charles Thompson observed in<br />

1744 of “being impatiently desirous of viewing<br />

a country so famous in history”. Italy with its<br />

vibrant exotic cities and spectacular ruins<br />

and discoveries at Pompeii, Herculaneum and<br />

Tivoli was alluring to those with the means.<br />

Travel may now be democratic and broad in its<br />

offerings, but the country still exerts a powerful<br />

presence — and <strong>Graham</strong> <strong>Geddes</strong> is often lured<br />

by Italy’s siren call.<br />

<strong>The</strong> impatient urge to again travel and ‘go<br />

shopping’ for the extraordinary, surprising, and<br />

always high-quality objects with which to enrich<br />

his collection is the impetus for the current sale.


5<br />

<strong>Graham</strong>’s world of antiques is as varied and<br />

interesting as the man himself. He was not born<br />

into an environment surrounded by art and<br />

antiques. His grandfather, a pawn broker, gave<br />

<strong>Graham</strong> his first taste, setting the then sevenyear-old<br />

the task of polishing the pawn shop<br />

silver, urging him to be mindful of over rubbing<br />

the marks. At Melbourne University he studied<br />

psychology and Fine Arts where the glories<br />

of the Classical period and the world of pre-<br />

Classical antiquities made a lasting impression.<br />

A lifelong voracious reader he likes nothing<br />

better than to “wander about in antiquity”, noting<br />

that “the past is a way for the future to be seen”.<br />

<strong>Graham</strong>’s journey to antiques dealer however<br />

was a circuitous route. He earned his PhD,<br />

researching communication problems with deaf<br />

children. While serving as a school headmaster<br />

at Maude near Geelong he diversified by opening<br />

a discotheque, ‘<strong>The</strong> Catcher’, running bands<br />

such as the Wild Cherries and Max Merritt &<br />

the Meteors. While the highly lucrative and<br />

colourful rock and roll lifestyle didn’t sit well<br />

with the Education Department it certainly<br />

demonstrated <strong>Graham</strong>’s characteristic flair for<br />

entrepreneurship, for seeing an opportunity<br />

and pursuing it, a trait that has served him<br />

well over the decades.<br />

Renowned as a raconteur, mercurial, a man<br />

who knows how to put on a party, <strong>Graham</strong> is<br />

humble about his life-long interests. Now in<br />

his late 80s, he is excited at the prospect of<br />

going shopping again, but at the end of the day,<br />

<strong>Graham</strong>’s philosophy is succinct: “I simply love<br />

learning about things and understanding the<br />

meaning of it all”.<br />

misunderstanding or mistake regarding a Sale or a<br />

Lot the subject of a Sale, the Auctioneer may rescind<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. Gibson's at<br />

the request of the Buyer may arrange for a carrier,<br />

packer or shipper to have the property packed,<br />

insured and shipped at the Buyer’s expense. All<br />

packing, shipping, insurance, postage & associated<br />

charges will be borne by the purchaser. Gibson's can<br />

assist with removal companies that the Buyer can<br />

use but takes no responsibility whatsoever for the<br />

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<br />

1986 prior to purchase. Export/import licences<br />

applications are the responsibility of the Buyer and/<br />

or the Buyer's nominated shipper. Gibson's shall<br />

not be obliged to rescind a Sale nor to refund any<br />

expenses incurred by the Buyer in circumstances<br />

where an export licence 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 its 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 the Company sees 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<br />

Gibson's 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<br />

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

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

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

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

obligations to the Company;<br />

x) to take such other action as the Company<br />

deems 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, the Company 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 the<br />

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

paragraph 7. Apart from that, neither the Seller nor<br />

the Company, nor any of the Company’s employees<br />

or agents are responsible for the correctness of any<br />

statement of whatever kind concerning any Lot,<br />

whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or<br />

omissions in description or for any faults or defects<br />

in any Lots. Except as stated in paragraph 7 below,<br />

neither the Seller, the Company, its officers, agents<br />

or employees give any representation warranty<br />

or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in


192<br />

respect of any Lot with regard to merchantability,<br />

fitness for a particular purpose, description, size,<br />

quality, condition, attribution, authenticity, rarity,<br />

importance, medium, provenance, exhibition history,<br />

literature or historical relevance. Except as required<br />

by local law any warranty of any kind is excluded by<br />

this paragraph.<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. <strong>The</strong> 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 />

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

the original Buyer must have remained the<br />

owner of the Lot without disposing of any<br />

interest in it to any third party<br />

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

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

the Auction. <strong>The</strong> 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 decide<br />

whether 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 />

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 />

<strong>The</strong> 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 shall<br />

not be used by the Buyer, nor by anyone else without<br />

our prior written consent. Gibson's and the Seller<br />

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

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

reproduction rights in it.<br />

10. Law and Jurisdiction<br />

<strong>The</strong>se 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. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

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

intended to be definitive. <strong>The</strong>y 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<br />

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

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

Goods 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. <strong>The</strong>se 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<br />

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

Price and Premiums under the following conditions:<br />

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

approved freight company including Australia<br />

Post<br />

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

date of the Sale<br />

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

be 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)<br />

$1,000 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 years?<br />

<strong>The</strong> Seller:<br />

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

her legal obligations under the Resale Royalty<br />

for 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<br />

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

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 §. <strong>The</strong> Australian<br />

price (including GST). <strong>The</strong> Australian Resale<br />

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

Vendor Commission plus any applicable GST and<br />

government charges.<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<br />

same purpose. Other treatments such as staining<br />

or dyeing, irradiation, filling or coating may have<br />

been used on other precious and semi-precious<br />

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

may be permanent, whilst others may need special<br />

care to reserve their appearance. Buyers should<br />

assume that each Lot has been subject to some<br />

form of treatment 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<br />

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 may have been subjected to such<br />

treatments, and that the catalogue estimates<br />

reflect 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. <strong>The</strong> 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. <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.
