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 identifi<strong>cat</strong>ion,<br />

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

2. Telephone Bidding<br />

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

all lots, at all auctions.<br />

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

to attend an auction in person. A Gibson’s Auctioneers<br />

& Valuers staff member will call you approximately 5 lots<br />

in advance and with your instruction, bid on your behalf<br />

at the auction.<br />

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

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

number of telephone bidders available may be restricted<br />

when the 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. Please fill in & return<br />

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<br />

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

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

the Absentee Bidding form available on our website:<br />

time with a live broadcast of the auction. To bid online visit<br />

our website and follow the ‘Live Bidding’ link under the<br />

‘Auctions’ tab.<br />

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

auction to ensure you do not miss your lot.<br />

Please note online bidding is powered by Invaluable.com<br />

be asked to provide a clear Photo ID verifying your address<br />

and a deposit (set at Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers’<br />

discretion) prior to the auction. The deposit is refundable<br />

within 48 hours should you not be successful. If you are<br />

successful the deposit will be deducted from your invoice<br />

total. The remaining balance must be paid preferably by<br />

direct deposit.<br />

Property from the Collection<br />

of Hugh & Jackie Wallace<br />

Lots 1–200<br />

Jackie and Hugh Wallace were both born in the late 1930s.<br />

Jackie was born in Epsom, England and Hugh in Melbourne,<br />

Australia. Jackie’s father served with the English army in Iceland<br />

and following WWII, he continued to travel extensively through<br />

his work as a quantity surveyor, opening offices around the<br />

globe. Jackie accompanied him on numerous trips through<br />

Europe and Africa, as well as to Australia, where she met Hugh.<br />

Hugh by now was a stockbroker and partner at Carrington & Co,<br />

when he first met Jackie.<br />

Both Jackie and Hugh enjoyed collecting art from an early age<br />

and had a good eye for it. Being a stockbroker, Hugh was used to<br />

calculated risks and so would often buy an artwork when he felt<br />

the artist showed potential. Together they bought art by the likes<br />

of Jeffrey Smart and Albert Namatjira, long before they became<br />

well known artists, let alone collectable works of art. They worked<br />

well as a team, with interests and growing knowledge in differing<br />

areas. Jackie was particularly interested in English seascapes,<br />

Staffordshire and furniture, while Hugh favoured Murano glass,<br />

Torquay Ware ceramics and Aboriginal art.<br />

Over the years Jackie and Hugh travelled extensively, in particular<br />

to England, Europe, Sri Lanka and around Australia. Their<br />

collection is eclectic, from Aboriginal art, Naïve art, early and<br />

modern Australian, English and Asian furniture and artefacts,<br />

Murano glass, Torquay Ware, Staffordshire and bronze works<br />

through to Egyptian and Shona stone. Some items date back to<br />

the 17th century. The Wallace Collection presented by Gibson’s is a<br />

personal selection of their shared lifetime of collecting.

Property from the Collection of<br />

the Late Harry & Masha Flicker<br />

Lots 201–406


45<br />

An architect-designed modernist 1960s house<br />

in a quiet Toorak cul-de-sac gives little hint as<br />

to the unusual trove that lies within. Upon entry,<br />

an exotic oriental world unfolds, the singular<br />

stylistic vision of Harry and Masha Flicker.<br />

Born in Bratislava (now the capital of Slovakia),<br />

Harry and Masha grew up in the same circle,<br />

their respective grandfathers worked in business<br />

together and there was a warm friendship<br />

between the two families.<br />

Between 1939-1941, the dislo<strong>cat</strong>ion and threat<br />

of German occupied Europe forced movement<br />

of Jewish populations further east. Harry and<br />

Masha’s families were sent first to collective<br />

farms in Kazakhstan in Central Asia and then to<br />

Siberian labour camps. Post-war, Harry’s family<br />

secured passage to Australia, while Masha’s<br />

family sought sanctuary and a new life in Israel.<br />

The geographical separation did not diminish<br />

the great bond between the families. About<br />

eight years after the teenage Masha arrived<br />

in Israel, Harry visited, returning to Australia<br />

with Masha as his bride-to-be, aged about 22.<br />

A new country, new language, and new customs,<br />

while at times challenging, didn’t deter Masha as<br />

she reconnected with extended family, friends<br />

and acquaintances who bonded through their<br />

wartime experiences.<br />

Businessman, Harry, purchased the Toorak<br />

family home in 1966, and it proved sufficiently<br />

large to accommodate a family of two boys,<br />

while leaving two rooms vacant and unused for<br />

several years. Things were soon to change.<br />

In 1970 Masha and Harry attended Expo in<br />

Osaka, Japan. Despite the forward-looking<br />

theme of the expo, Progress and Harmony<br />

for Mankind, it was old Japan that captivated<br />

the Flickers. Women in traditional kimono still<br />

graced the local streets as they went about daily<br />

life, and Masha, especially, was captivated.<br />

Upon returning to Melbourne, she set about<br />

transforming the unused rooms into exotic<br />

galleries for her new-found interest. The rooms<br />

were extended, a talented local joiner created<br />

oriental-inspired fitted cabinetry and suitable<br />

furnishings. The walls, windows and floors were<br />

suitably adorned with papers and tatami mats<br />

to create a moody interior. Oriental inspired<br />

stained glass windows were commissioned.<br />

Over the course of the next two decades<br />

Masha collected woodblock prints, bronzes,<br />

carvings, ivories, cloisonné, satsuma and<br />

other porcelains – her interest broadening to<br />

also embrace Chinese decorative arts and<br />

furnishings. The exotic rooms were not merely<br />

showpieces. They were the core of family life,<br />

dinners and entertainment, and items were<br />

used and enjoyed.<br />

Masha developed a reputation as a willing buyer<br />

amongst Melbourne dealers, one of whom<br />

visited the house twice a week with suitable<br />

objects, happy to relieve Mrs Flicker of her<br />

housekeeping money, a practice that was both<br />

meticulously recorded in a Spirax cash book and<br />

warmly encouraged by the adoring Harry.<br />

The love of the orient extended also to the<br />

exterior with both Masha and Harry becoming<br />

afficionados and collectors of bonsai of which<br />

they had over fifty highly regarded specimens.<br />

The back yard, too, was transformed into a<br />

Japanese garden with bamboos, maples and<br />

conifers set within gravel paths, water features<br />

and a rockery.<br />

Harry Flicker worked in business from 1959-1974<br />

helping to build Worsted Finishers Australia<br />

Pty Ltd. He acquired the business in 1975<br />

renaming it, Flickers Dye House, which he grew<br />

and diversified to become a noted supplier of<br />

world-class services and products to the textile<br />

and other industries. Flicker’s Pty Ltd continues<br />

today and remains family owned.<br />

Harry’s beloved Masha died in 1992 and Harry<br />

passed away in 2021. This is their collection.<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. The property is<br />

otherwise sold “as is”.<br />

B) CATALOGUE AND OTHER DESCRIPTIONS<br />

All statements by Gibson's in the <strong>cat</strong>alogue entry<br />

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

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

opinion and are not to be relied upon as statements<br />

of fact. Such statements do not constitute a<br />

representation, warranty or assumption of liability<br />

by Gibson's of any kind. References in the <strong>cat</strong>alogue<br />

entry to the condition report, including damage<br />

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

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

a knowledgeable representative. The 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 its value for any other purpose.<br />

Neither Gibson's nor the Seller is responsible for<br />

any errors or omissions in the <strong>cat</strong>alogue or any<br />

supplemental material.<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 />

<strong>cat</strong>alogue.<br />

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

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

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

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

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

look to the principal for payment.<br />

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

request any additional forms of identifi<strong>cat</strong>ion prior<br />

to registering an overseas Bid. This deposit can be<br />

any purchase price in excess of $5,000 cannot be<br />

charged to this card without prior arrangement. This<br />

deposit is redeemable against any Auction purchase.<br />

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

to the Sale for the convenience of those clients<br />

who are unable to attend the Auction in person.<br />

If Gibson's receives identical written Bids on a<br />

particular Lot, and at the Auction these are the<br />

highest Bids on that Lot, then the Lot will be sold<br />

to the person whose written Bid was received and<br />

accepted first. Execution of written Bids is a free<br />

service undertaken subject to other commitments<br />

at the time of the Sale and we do not accept liability<br />

for failing to execute a written Bid or for errors<br />

or omissions which may arise. It is the Bidder’s<br />

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

Auction if they were successful. Unlimited or<br />

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

indi<strong>cat</strong>ive Bidding increments below for appropriate<br />

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

miscommuni<strong>cat</strong>ions in the process. The success<br />

registered at least 24 hours before the Auction of<br />

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

H) RESERVES<br />

Unless otherwise indi<strong>cat</strong>ed, all Lots are offered<br />

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

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

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

printed in the <strong>cat</strong>alogue. The Auctioneer may open<br />

the 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) AUCTIONEER'S DISCRETION<br />

The Auctioneer has the right at his absolute and<br />

sole discretion to refuse any Bid, to advance the<br />

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

withdraw or divide any Lot, to combine any two or<br />

more Lots and, in the case or error or dispute and<br />

whether during or after the Sale, to determine the<br />

successful Bidder, to continue the Bidding, to cancel<br />

the Sale or to re-offer and resell the item in dispute.<br />

In the event of a dispute, or the Auctioneer or the<br />

Company is of the opinion that there has been a<br />

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

Lot the subject of a Sale, the Auctioneer may rescind<br />

the Sale and put any Lot up for a Second Auction. If<br />

a Sale is rescinded, the Company may put the Lot up<br />

at a second Auction, offer the Lot for sale by private<br />

treaty or withdraw the Lot from sale entirely.<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 />

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 />

appli<strong>cat</strong>ions 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 />

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 lo<strong>cat</strong>ed.<br />

The 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


134<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 <strong>cat</strong>alogue (noting such description<br />

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

announcement) which is stated without qualifi<strong>cat</strong>ion<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 <strong>cat</strong>alogue.<br />

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

i) it does not apply where a) the <strong>cat</strong>alogue<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 />

indi<strong>cat</strong>ed that there was a conflict of opinions,<br />

or b) correct identifi<strong>cat</strong>ion of a Lot can be<br />

demonstrated only by means of a scientific<br />

process not generally accepted for use until<br />

after publi<strong>cat</strong>ion of the <strong>cat</strong>alogue or a process<br />

which at the date of the publi<strong>cat</strong>ion of the<br />

<strong>cat</strong>alogue 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 />

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 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 />

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

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

including the contents of this <strong>cat</strong>alogue, 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 />

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 <strong>cat</strong>alogue 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<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. 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<br />

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

Price and 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<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 />

The 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 §. The Australian<br />

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

price (including GST). The 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 & Gold<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. These 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 certifi<strong>cat</strong>es that give<br />

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

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

certifi<strong>cat</strong>es for any Lot, this shall be noted in the<br />

<strong>cat</strong>alogue. 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 <strong>cat</strong>alogue 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 <strong>cat</strong>alogue 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. 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.<br />

GOLD<br />

Gold is sold in good faith that its purity is as<br />

marked or hallmarked on the object. Should an<br />

item have a gold content of 10% less than the<br />

<strong>cat</strong>alogued amount, Gibson’s will refund as per our<br />

Terms and Conditions.
