TERMINOLOGY

A work catalogued as “by” a maker is, in our opinion, a work by that maker. A work catalogued as “by” a dealer, is in our opinion, a work made specifically for the dealer and originally sold by him, the identity of the actual maker being unknown or unidentifiable. The instrument is believed to be the named maker in the opinion of the author(s) or the authority(ies) whose literature or certificates are referred to in the footnote to the lot. In our opinion the instrument is not necessarily the work of this maker. A traditional attribution with which we do not necessarily agree.

In our opinion the instrument was probably executed by an unknown hand on the premises of and possibly under the direct supervision of the named maker. In our opinion a work by a follower of the maker or in the style of works associated with the area.

Instruments catalogued as labelled, branded. inscribed and stamped with a maker’s name does not necessarily mean the instrument was made by that maker.

COnDItIOnS OF SAle 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.

Online Bidding

Gardiner Houlgate offers an online bidding service via the-saleroom.com for bidders who cannot attend the sale. In completing the bidder registration on www.the-saleroom.com and providing your card details and, unless alternative arrangements are agreed with Gardiner Houlgate, you: i) authorise Gardiner Houlgate, if they so wish, to charge the card given in part or full payment, including all fees, for items successfully purchased in the auction via the-saleroom.com, and

ii) confirm that you are authorised to provide these card details to Gardiner Houlgate through www.the-saleroom.com and agree that Gardiner Houlgate is entitled to ship the goods to the card holder name and card holder address provided in fulfilment of the sale. Please note that any lots purchased via the-saleroom.com live auction service will be subject to an additional 3% charge + VAT at the rate imposed on the hammer price

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. It is the responsibility of the Seller to ensure any reserves are received by the Auctioneer.

5. Buyer's Duties

The Buyer shall forthwith or as soon as possible after the sale, (a) supply his name and address, (b) supply, if so required, bank or other suitable references, (c) pay the full purchase price in a way acceptable to the Auctioneer, notwithstanding any prior arrangement for advance payment required by the Auctioneer, and (d) on proof of payment clear the lots purchased by the times specified. Lots may not be cleared during the sale except by permission of the Auctioneer.

50p per lot per day on any lot or lots uncleared by the time specified together with any removal expenses. In addition, interest will be charged at 2.5% per month or part thereof (34.4% APr) on any accounts that remain unpaid in part or full 1 week after the sale. Interest and storage will be charged from the date of sale. In addition, the Buyer shall be liable for all legal and court costs incurred by the Auctioneers in pursuit of payment from the Buyer. The Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse any cheques and will not release lots purchased until evidence has been received that any cheque accepted has been cleared.

13. Release of Goods

Payment and clearance should be made within seven days after the sale. Goods will not be released until fully payment has been received and a paid invoice produced. For clients arranging courier or third party collection: written instruction must be received by the purchaser; identification will be requested from the courier and their vehicle’s registration number taken. For security purposes our premises are monitored by 24 hour CCTV 14. Definitions and interpretation

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

6. Payments

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

7. Liability of the Auctioneer and Sellers

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

due to a recent rise in card fraud, we are no longer able to accept payments by credit or debit cards for ‘Customer not Present’ transactions at the discretion of the auctioneers. Card payments at the saleroom are still accepted, but must be supported by Chip and PIN Subject to Condition 8: (a) faults and imperfections (if any) are not stated in the catalogue and neither the Seller nor the Auctioneer is responsible for any defects whatsoever, (b) no warranty is given or authorised to be given by the Seller or the Auctioneer with regard to any lot other than the Seller's right to sell it, (c) any express or implied conditions or warranties relating to description or quality, are hereby excluded.

8. Catalogue Descriptions

descriptive statements contained in the advertisements or catalogues or made up by the Auctioneer or any member of his staff should be taken as matters of opinion only, and shall not be taken as statement of fact.

i) Items in the catalogue are sold as seen. Where possible significant damage is mentioned, but this does not include all faults and imperfections. The absence of such reference does not imply that the lot is in good condition or free from restoration or repair. Condition reports are available upon request ii) ’Inscribed’ or ‘Signed’ does not imply that the lot is wholly or partly by that maker

9. Forgeries

Notwithstanding Conditions 6 and 7, if the Auctioneer receives notice in writing from the Buyer WITHIN 7 dAYS OF THE SALE that in his opinion a lot is a forgery (as defined in Condition 12) and on giving such notification the lot in question is returned to the Auctioneer at his working premises in the same condition as when bought, then if on considering such evidence as the Buyer supplies to prove his assertion, the Auctioneer decides that the lot is a forgery the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price repaid to the Buyer. 10. 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. The Premium

The Buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer a premium of 20% of the hammer price together with VAT on such premium. 12. Default by Buyer

If the Buyer fails to make payment in a way acceptable to the Auctioneer or to remove any lot or lots bought by him within 7 days of the auction or in any other material respect fail to comply with these conditions, the Auctioneer shall have the right, (a) to resell the lot or lots by public auction or otherwise without notice to the Buyer, and if any deficiency arises on such resale, after deducting the Auctioneer's full costs and expenses, the Buyer shall be responsible to the Auctioneer therefore (but any net surplus to be the Seller's) or, alternatively, (b) to store the lot at the Auctioneer's premises or elsewhere and to release the lot to the Buyer only after payment in full of the purchase price together with any other charges due. The Auctioneer reserves the right to charge storage of

17. Property sold with a * Symbol

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 in the catalogue 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 50,000.01 to 200,000 200,000.01 to 350,000 350,000.01 to 500,000 Exceeding 500,000
