Rare and historically important lute by Mangnus Hellmer, Füssen 1601, currently set up for eleven courses of strings, the body comprising seventeen ivory ribs each divided by fine stringing of ebony, ivory and ebony, paper linings, a small ivory button at the top and bottom, the soundboard of very fine grain in the centre widening towards the edges, ebony half edging, the upper soundboard with cutouts now patched with pine for two earlier fingerboard points indicating an earlier neck probably to accommodate between seven to nine courses, an exceptionally fine rose, the piercing based around an eight-pointed star and interlocking circles, the base of the soundboard with an inset upward-pointing ivory heart, the neck overlaid with ebony, the ebony fingerboard possibly a later replacement, the pegbox with treble rider, the central section of fretted scrollwork, bearing a handwritten label Mangnus Hellmer zur Füessen Anno 1601, overall length 78cm., string length 67.2cm

*Provenance:

This lute was formerly the property of Sebastian Isepp (1884-1954), renowned picture conservator and chief restorer at the Kunsthistorischesmuseum, Vienna. Today as a painter he is credited as a leader of the Nötscher Kreises School of Austrian Painting. He came to Britain with his wife who was of Jewish descent in 1938 at the instigation of Sir Kenneth Clark. He had formed a collection of some thirty-seven stringed instruments most of which were later dispersed, some passing into the Collection of the musicologist and early stringed instrument player, Robert Spencer, and thence into the museum of the Royal Academy of Music. A guitar by Sellas from the Isepp Collection was sold in these Rooms on 20th September 2013. The remaining instruments passed to his son, the renowned piano accompanist Martin Isepp (1930-2011) and thus by inheritance to the present owner

Good small portable Cimbalom by Lajos Bohak, the front and sides carved with stylised foliage and inscribed Bohak, Budapest to the front, supported upon four circular tapering screw-in legs, with a pair of beaters, tuning handle and bespoke hard case, 47" wide overall, 29" deep

*The owner of this Cimbalom has been a player for over forty years, mainly on movie soundtracks. You can hear this small Bohak Cimbalom on the score of Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring in the sequence called Concerning Hobbits where Gandalf rides on a horse and cart into Hobbiton to meet Bilbo Baggins. He was a member of the Hobbit Band for all three of the Lord of the Rings movies playing this Cimbalom. In the early part of the 20th century, to meet the teaching demands of music institutions like Liszt Ference Academy of music in Budapest, Lajos Bohak devised a small portable Cimbalom and made a limited series of one hundred instruments, of which this is number 70. Although it is fully chromatic, the bass register is one octave shorter than the full size version and brass strings are used to give a very clear and delicate sound £1000-1500

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 and approved to bid are admitted to a sale on the basis that they have notice of these Conditions.

1A. Internet Bidding

There are no additional surcharges when bidding via our own bidding platform 'GH Live'

We also use two other online bidding platforms via the-saleroom.com and Easylive which will be subject to additional fees. Please see their respective websites for further details and terms.

‘Pre-Bidding Autobids’

'Pre-Bidding' is a new feature to our own platform and allows bidders to bid against each other prior to the start of a live auction. During the live auction the bidding will start at the current bid reached during the 'Pre-Bidding' and continues until your maximum bid is reached. All bids are anonymous, and your maximum bids are confidential. If you have been outbid, during the ‘Pre-Bidding’ then you will receive an email notifying you that you are no longer the leading bidder, however once the sale is live you will not receive any further notifications. Once bids are placed, they cannot be removed, but can be reduced, if above the current bid.

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.

6. Payments ALL LOTS ARE TO BE PAID & CLEARED WITHIN 7 DAYS OF THE AUCTION

Methods of payment include direct bank transfer, debit card, credit card, cash to a maximum of £8,500, Cheque payments are no longer accepted. For fraud protection we no longer accept payments by credit or debit cards for ‘Customer not Present’ transactions. Card payments at the saleroom will be accepted but must be supported by Chip and PIN. Card payments for live internet bidding will only be accepted if they have been AVS and 3D Secure authorised via our online platform with a maximum transaction limit of £1000 for Watch & Jewellery auctions; £2000 limit for all other auctions unless previous authorisation has been agreed. Deposit payments made direct at the bank or via telephone banking will need to be confirmed as 'cleared funds' before any goods are released.

6A. Anti-Money Laundering Policy

New clients spending over £5000 on an individual transaction must be verified, by supplying a current form of ID confirming their name and address to match the invoice. This must be supplied to complete the transaction before the release of goods

7. Liability of the Auctioneer and Sellers

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.

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

Any lots containing any amount of Brazilian rosewood and endangered species may 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

Import/Export

It is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain the correct import/export licenses and CITES licenses for items which they have purchased. Gardiner Houlgate take no responsibility for the export of goods.

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.

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 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 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%
