324 A LARGE AND RARE CHINESE IMPERIAL CELADON JADE DATED BI DISC INSCRIBED QIAN LONG JI YOU, CORRESPONDING TO THE YEAR 1789 In Western Han dynasty style, carved in shallow relief to each side with rows of studs, encircled by a band to the rim containing taotie masks divided by pairs of stylized phoenix, the flattened edge with an extensive inscription including the seals Gu xiang and Tai pu, 22.8cm. £30,000-50,000 Provenance: a private collection in the south of France. Cf. Compendium of Collections in the Palace Museum, Jade 8, Qing Dynasty, pp.62-3, no.34, where a closely related bi is illustrated. The inscription translates loosely as ‘this beautiful gift from Hetian, wholesome, soft and warm, was immersed in fertile soil which enriched its beauty. Carved in the traditional methods of craftsmanship, I [the Emperor Qianlong] ordered the sculptor to carve it as an archaistic bi disc. The objective was not to remain accurate with the proportions of the carving, but to maximize the beauty of the jade’. 清乾隆 青白玉雕獸面鳳鳥紋御製詩璧 銘文: 良質和闐貢,巨材周尺贏。全含水以潤,間沁土之精。 早厭俗工巧,命為古璧呈。不教拘肉好,恐惜捐瑤瓊。 乾隆己酉仲春御題。(1789) 印文:古香、太璞 來源:法國南部私人收藏 青白色玉質,器體兩側各有深褐色瑕斑,體扁圓形,中有圓孔,兩面飾紋相同。孔邊及外沿各有陽刻弦紋一周, 并以另一弦紋相隔為兩區。內區淺浮雕殼紋,外圈雕四組一首雙身獸面鳳鳥紋。來自法國南部的私人藏家的此件 玉璧傳承有序,雕工精湛,并刻乾隆御製詩一首。 璧是一种圆板形、片状、中部有孔的玉器,《说文》释璧:“瑞玉,圆器也。”《尔雅》有“肉倍好谓之璧”的说 法。肉即边,好即孔,边为孔径的两倍便是璧。《爾雅》曰:璧大六寸謂之瑄,肉倍好謂之璧,好倍肉謂之瑗, 肉好若一謂之環。但乾隆下令製作这件璧的时候特别嘱咐工匠不必拘泥于‘肉’于‘孔’2比1的比例,因为怕浪費了這 塊從和闐進貢的难得的美玉。 自宋徽宗時起,復古的藝術鑒賞觀念就已經成為主流,各地仿古之風尤勝。以歐陽修為首的文人臣子紛紛投入古 物目錄的編纂,對其進行了系統整理并繪圖。這種好古的觀念一直帶動著後代模仿古物的潮流然後。此件玉璧仿 漢代玉璧而製,乾隆皇帝也繼承了這種追慕淳樸古風的潮流,據《清高宗御製詩集全集》中記載乾隆排斥俗匠製 作‘新樣’‘時樣’,認為如此做法有傷美玉,甚至直指其為‘玉厄’。他更傾向於‘復古’‘仿古’的製作方式,認為‘漸欲引 之古,庶其返以初’,尋求一種樸素、高壓、有含義的典雅風格。詳見《清高宗御製詩文全集》,國立故宮博物 院,台北,1976年。 這種形式的玉璧,既用於禮儀和喪葬,也作人身配飾和和鑲嵌、餽贈等用途。這種用於祭奠的玉璧可以一路尋淵 追溯至西周之前基本沒有任何紋飾,始於戰國,西漢前期做工最精,數量最多,漢中期以後逐漸減少。乾隆二十 四年(1759年)平定新疆準格爾部和回部動亂之后,解決了長期阻礙玉器發展的原料問題,和闐玉開始大量進貢 京城。加上乾隆皇帝耳提面命、精益求精的仿古熱情,宮廷玉器生產出現了繁榮的局面。此件玉璧的御製詩作於 乾隆五十四年,正是良玉美材充沛,工匠技術純熟之時。與此件拍品類似的沒有銘文的玉璧可以在《故宮博物院 藏品大系:玉器編8》,紫荊城出版社,2011,圖版34。

Accuracy, speed and above all confidentiality are paramount. insurAnCE VAluAtiOns written valuations for insurance can vary from a single item to a large estate. Before starting we discuss the various options available so that the valuation is specifically tailored to individual client’s needs.

估價:估價是爲了提供競買人一個大概的價格 浮動範圍。所有提供的拍賣品均設有賣家所定 的保密的最低價,拍品不會以低於此價出售。 圖錄上較低的估價價格即可能是該拍賣品的底 價。估價不包括競買人支付的傭金和VAt增值 稅。估價會在拍賣之前提供給競買人。

買入價格:競買人需要付成交價和傭金(每 件拍品的成交價低於£500,000 取22%,超過 £500,000 上部份 取12%)+ VAt增值稅 VAt增值稅:買家須以有關法律所規定的稅率 及時間繳付增值稅。增值稅會在成交價和傭金 之上收取。帶有星號(*)的拍品是從歐盟國 家進口的,將徵收20%進口VAt增值稅。帶有 雙星符號(**)的拍品是從歐盟以外的國家進 口的,當下的VAt增值稅為5%。如果沒有以上 敘述的兩種符號,該拍品就不需要徵收VAt增 值稅。 威立士拍賣行:本公司是賣家的仲介,所有拍 品的資訊均源自於賣家,同時也會檢查拍品的 情況。本公司在關於拍品的目錄、品相報告和 另外口頭與書面的所有陳述,均只屬於意見的 表述,而不應依據為事實的陳述。目錄和品相 報告中所提及的有關瑕疵和未經修復的敘述只 作為對該拍品的參考,不應被依據為拍品的真 實狀況。所以競買人在拍賣前仔細檢查拍品情 況是一個明智的選擇。但如果發現拍品存在‘ 蓄意偽造’的情況,在三個星期內可能可以被 退還。(蓄意偽造的詳細解釋可以在本公司的 拍賣條款裏查閱) 電器拍品:所有電器拍品都以古董的形式進行 拍賣,如果是用於日常使用請在拍賣之前與專 業電器公司確認其安全性。 出口拍品:買家如果想要出口競拍所得物品需 要查明:a)是否需要出口許可證。b)要攜帶 入境的國家是否對該類拍品有禁令。比如說, 可能會禁止攜帶象牙。如有需要請詢問本公司 前臺服務。但上述的兩種情況都不作為取消交 易和推遲付款的原因。

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS 1.

Introduction. the following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand.

2.

Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller.

3.

Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. the lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAt (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. they are in no sense definitive.

4.

The purchase price. the Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 22% on the first £500,000 and 12% thereafter + VAt at the appropriate rate.

5.

VAT. (†) indicates that VAt at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. this imposition of VAt is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAt within the European union and is not operating the dealers Margin scheme or because VAt is due at 20% on importation into the uk. the symbol (Ω) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAt (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAt is payable on the hammer price. this is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin scheme and it should be noted that the VAt included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax.

6.

we are, primarily, agents for the seller. we are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of sale. neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. in particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. there is a 3 week time limit. (the expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale).

7.

Electrical goods. these are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first.

8.

Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. the denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment.

9.

Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding.

10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. they will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. if two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid

11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash). 12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of sale state about collection and storage. it is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges. TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS 1.

Interpretation. in these terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the seller’s authority to contract. similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers.

2.

Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above.

3.

Removal costs. items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. we may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility.

4.

Loss and damage waiver. we are not regulated by the FsA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. to justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAt or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. if the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable.

5.

Illustrations. the cost of any illustrations is borne by you. if we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue.

6.

Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7.

7.

we may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve.

Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8.

Electrical items. these are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. they must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense.

9.

Soft furnishings. the sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. we reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. the rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of the torts (interference with Goods) Act 1977, schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request.

10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. there is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. we will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary.


where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. the liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it.

(f)

11. Unsold and withdrawn items. if an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. we reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate.

2.

12. Withdrawn and bought in items. these are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAt of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued. 13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of sale. in particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking.

‘sale proceeds’ means the net amount due to the seller, being the hammer price of the lot sold less commission at the stated rate, Value Added tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by the seller in whatever capacity and however arising. (g) ‘‘You’, ‘Your’, etc. refer to the buyer as identified in Condition 2. (h) the singular includes the plural and vice versa as appropriate.

3.

(b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. we disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. 16. Settlement. subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACs or cheque four weeks after the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. in this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of sale. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days from the date of sale.

Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. we undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. this Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 ‘information to buyers’. (b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 15. FORGERIES notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. the right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of sale. GENERAL 16. we shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 17. (a) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (b) such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them.
