The Arthur­Mitchell Collection Arthur sadly passed away in April last year. He was a regular follower of the Specialist Clock Auctions at Gardiner Houlgate, always eager to view the sales in his unassuming way. He will be sadly missed.

Arthur’s interest in clocks emerged back in 1944, while still at school, he was inspired by a family friend who was a watch and clock repairer. His love of clocks remained for the rest of his life and he became an avid collector, primarily of electric clocks. He was a founding member of the Electrical Horology Group in 1970, as a sub group of the Antiquarian Horology Society, where he served as secretary for 25 years until 1995, sharing his expertise amongst fellow electrical horologists.

His vast knowledge was undoubted and is further highlighted with some rare and exceptional pieces from his entire collection coming up for sale, ‘Part I’ was in October 2018, ‘Part II’ in February 2019 and ‘Part III’ in this auction. The lots listed below are from the collection:

1133. Very rare Shortt Synchronome free pendulum clock finally developed by William Hamilton Shortt engineer for the London & South Western Railway and Frank Hope Jones horologist of the Synchronome Company.

Shortt Synchronome free pendulum clock No. 101 according to the builders plate, that would have finished a production run begun in 1924. Purchased in the 1970s as a part assembled movement (as it were off the shelf) that could be completed to become a finished example when added to all the component parts some of which are missing. These missing parts that we know of include, free pendulum rod, collars, trunnion, suspension spring and safety plate. The majority of, possibly all, items to finish the 'movement' are contained in plastic packets mostly carrying descriptions, some copies of original drawings ie, components, layout, setup are also included, in addition is the large seconds slave movements, parts, plates and castings. The master movement/clock housed in a cylindrical copper wall mounted vacuum tank, with the movement still to be assembled under a later glass bell jar with a glass bottom circular plate to be secured by the cast brass three point adjustable clamp, the glass plate allows one to see via the mirror the beat plate to be fitted below the pendulum bob.

Also the Astronomical slave clock and pendulum of the type used with the free pendulum system, 10" silvered dial signed Synchronome, Patent No. 187814 with centre seconds, subsidiary minute and twenty four hour dial over two door mounted dials, Free P and Slave, within a glazed mahogany case, 55.25" high. No serial number had been allocated

These complex precision electromechanical pendulum clocks by William Hamilton-Shortt in collaboration with Frank Hope-Jones were the most accurate pendulum clocks ever commercially produced and became the highest standard for timekeeping between the 1920s and 1940s, after which mechanical clocks were superseded by quartz time standards. They were used worldwide in astronomical observatories, naval observatories, in scientific research, and in primary standard for national time dissemination services. The Shortt was the first clock to be a more accurate timekeeper than the earth itself; it was used in 1926 to detect tiny seasonal changes in the earth's rotation rate. Shortt clocks achieved accuracy of around a second per year, although a recent measurement indicated they were even more accurate. About one hundred were produced between 1922 and 1956 ÂŁ10000-20000

CONDITIONs­OF­sALE The Auctioneer acts only as agent for the Seller (unless otherwise specifically declared). Lots sold are likely to have been subject to wear and tear caused by user or the effects of age and may therefore have faults and imperfections. Buyers are given ample opportunity at viewing times to examine lots to be sold and will be assumed to have done so. They must rely solely on their own skill or judgement as to whether lots are fit for any particular purpose. 1. Bids

All bids made shall be treated as offers made upon these Conditions of Sale and all persons present are admitted to a sale on the basis that they have notice of these Conditions.

2. Ascertainment of the Buyer

The Buyer shall be the person making the highest bid which is acceptable to the Auctioneer as signified by the fall of the hammer. No bid may be retracted. In the case of a dispute the Auctioneer may either declare the purchaser or put the lot up again. 3. Auctioneer's discretion

The Auctioneer has sole discretion, (a) to refuse any bid, (b) to advance the bidding as he may decide, (c) to withdraw or divide any lot or combine one lot with another or others, (d) to exclude any person from the auction rooms, and (e) to require pre-payment in full. 4. Reserves and Seller's right to bid

Lots put up for sale are subject, (a) to any reserve price imposed by the Seller, (b) the right of the Auctioneer to bid on behalf of the Seller, and (c) where no reserve has been imposed (but in no other case) for the Seller to bid personally or through any one agent.

Property in lots and risk

The Buyer shall not become the owner of any lot, and the Auctioneer shall have a lien thereon, until the Buyer has discharged the purchase price in full together with any other charges due, but after the fall of the hammer the risk of damage or loss shall nevertheless be the Buyer's. 11.

In these conditions: (a) Reference to the 'the Auctioneer' shall be taken to mean the firm of Gardiner Houlgate or any director, partner or employee thereof at the time of sale; (b) Buyers shall be deemed to be the principals unless to the prior knowledge of the Auctioneer they are acting as agent on behalf of a named principal; (c) 'Forgery' means a lot (i) which is so constituted as deliberately to deceive when considered in the light of its catalogue description, and (ii) whose value as such is materially less that if it had complied with the catalogue description; (d) The Interpretation Act 1978 shall apply to the general construction of terms and expressions used in these Conditions as if contained in a statute. 15. Law and Jurisdiction

These Conditions of sale are subject to English law, which shall apply to their construction as well as their effect. The Seller and Buyer agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

16. What is Temporary Importation?

Temporary Importation is a system that applies to lots which have been imported for sale from outside the EU. It allows the point of importation to be delayed until after the sale at auction. These lots are indicated in catalogues by the use of the following symbol *

Only the Hammer Price will be treated as the import price and the Buyer’s Premium will be subject to UK domestic VAT at 20%. So whilst the Hammer Price will continue to be charged with Import VAT at 5% or 20” as appropriate, the Buyer’s Premium will always be charged with domestic VAT at 20%

Lots subject to Temporary Importation will be offered under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme and will be subject to import VAT of either 5% or 20% on the buyer’s Premium. Anyone who wishes to buy outside the Margin Scheme should notify us immediately. An invoice under the normal VAT rules and charging VAT at 20% on both Hammer and Premium will then be issued

Temporary Importation should affect only private individual buyers who are resident within the EU. Anyone who is registered for VAT in the EU should be able to recover the VAT on the Buyer’s Premium either on their VAT returns or through the 8th Directive Refund Scheme. Any non-EU buyer who exports the lots from the EU will be able to have the VAT refunded provided the appropriate export regulations are complied with 17. Property sold with a * Symbol

These items have been imported from outside the EU to be sold at auction under temporary importation. When Gardiner Houlgate releases such property to buyers in the UK, the buyer will become the importer and must pay Gardiner Houlgate import VAT at 5% on the Hammer Price

These lots will be invoiced under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme. Gardiner Houlgate must bear VAT on the Buyer’s Premium and hence charge an amount in lieu of VAT at 20% on this Premium. This amount will form part of the Buyer’s Premium on our invoice and will not be separately identified VAT registered buyers from the EU should note that the import VAT charged on property released in the UK cannot be cancelled or refunded by Gardiner Houlgate VAT registered buyers from the UK should note that the invoice issued by Gardiner Houlgate for these items is not suitable evidence in respect of import VAT

VAT registered buyers from the EU countries may be able to seek repayment of the import VAT paid by applying to HM Revenue and Customs. On request, immediately after the sale, the office can either ask HM Revenue and Customs to generate a C79 certificate (for UK buyers), or obtain a copy of the import C88 (for other EU VAT registered buyers), which may be used to claim recovery of the VAT. Otherwise Gardiner Houlgate may re-invoice the lot and charge VAT at 20% on both the Hammer Price and the Premium and provide a tax invoice to the buyer

18. CITES Restrictions

As of 2 January 2017, new laws came into effect to control the import and export of all items made with rosewood. Any lots containing any amount of rosewood will therefore be subject to restrictions when exporting outside of the EU. It will be the buyer’s responsibility to make sure that the relevant paperwork is in place before shipping

Some lots are sold with CITES article 10 certificates, allowing the commercial use of an item containing an endangered species. Lots subject to this are marked in the catalogue

19. Gemstones

Many gemstones have been treated in various ways to enhance their appearance. For example, sapphires and rubies are routinely heat treated and emerald treated with oils and resins. Some stones may require re-treating or oiling periodically. Enhancement affects market value and all Gardiner Houlgate estimates assume that gemstones may have been enhanced, in any case all lots are sold as seen and purchasers are deemed to have satisfied themselves as to condition and any possibly treatment of stones 20. Artists Resale Rights (or Droit de Suite)

On certain lots marked in the catalogues and which are sold for a hammer price of 1000 Euros or greater (converted into the currency of the sale using The Design and Artists Copyright Society threshold calculator on the date of the Sale) the Additional Premium will be the percentage of the amount of the Hammer Price calculated as follows:

0-50,000 Euros 4%

50,000.01 to 200,000 3%

200,000.01 to 350,000 1%

350,000.01 to 500,000 0.5% Exceeding 500,000 0.25%
