Saturday July 25, 2009 Starting at 10:00 AM Lots 1 – 484 Antiques by the very nature of their age, have wear that reflects their years of use. As a result, honest wear earned from use is to be expected and is sometimes the proof that an item is an antique. Normal wear will not be listed.

Closson’s has been a staple of the Cincinnati retail scene since the late 19th century. The present clock was likely retailed by Closson just after the turn of the 20th century and was made by the firm of Francis Bawo and Charles Dotter of New York. Bawo and Dotter were initially importers of glass and china, but hired Charles A. Jacques in 1895 to oversee the sale of hall clocks. Initially Jacques used Elliot movements, but began, in 1898, using German Elite movements. The tubes on the present clock are marked for Elite. The case is identical to a number 4 Bawo and Dotter clock that sold at Cowan’s in April 2007, lot 109, though the present case retains its original carved cartouche.

GARTH’S POLICY GUARANTEE: Garth’s Auctions, Inc. continues to be committed to providing thorough descriptions that reflect our belief in service through honesty, integrity and attention to detail. Garth’s Auctions, Inc. guarantees the authenticity of origin as stated in the first bold line of the catalogue description, with the exception of amendments by any oral or written notices or announcements at the time of the auction. “Origin” is defined as the creator, period, culture, or source, as set forth in the first bold line of a lot in the catalog. Exclusions – Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms of Guarantee, Garth’s Auctions, Inc. does not guarantee the names or patterns of any Oriental rugs. All rug dimensions are approximate. Garth’s does not guarantee the authenticity of any item created before 1500. Regarding all jewelry, all weights, grades, sizes, and metal content(s) are approximate. Regarding colored stones: purchasers are reminded that colored stones and diamonds may be enhanced by using one or more techniques, including but not limited to: clarity enhancements, resins, and heat treatment. Garth’s makes no warranty express or implied to the buyer as to whether a natural stone has been enhanced. Additionally, antiques, by the very nature of their age, have wear that reflects their years of use. As a result, honest wear earned from use is to be expected and is sometimes the proof that an item is an antique. Normal wear will not be listed. Buyers who would like to know the fine points regarding condition should call prior to the auction. We would prefer that you examine the items before you place a bid. All other guarantees of authenticity of authorship, expressed or implied, are hereby disclaimed. There is no other warranty, express or implied. Each and every lot is sold “as is”.

BUYING FOR OUR ACCOUNT: The owners and employees of Garth’s Auctions, Inc. never have, nor ever will buy any item at our auction for ourselves.

LIABILITY: Garth’s Auctions, Inc. guarantees the authenticity of origin of a lot for a period of twenty-one days from the date of the auction and only to the original purchaser of record at the auction. If it is determined to Garth’s Auctions, Inc.’s satisfaction that the first bold line is incorrect, the sale will be rescinded provided the lot is returned to Garth’s Auctions, Inc. in the same condition in which it was at the time of the auction. It is also Garth’s Auctions, Inc.’s policy to have the purchaser obtain, at the purchaser’s expense, the opinion of one (or two in some cases) recognized experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Garth’s Auctions, Inc. and the purchaser, before Garth’s Auctions, Inc. determines whether to rescind the sale under the above guarantee. The purchaser’s sole remedy in the event of disputed authenticity of origin of any lot shall be the rescission of the sale and return of the original purchase price and premium paid by the purchaser. Garth’s Auctions, Inc. accepts no liability of any kind for an item after the gavel has fallen.

WITHDRAWN LOTS: Garth’s Auction, Inc. reserves the right to withdraw any property before the auction and shall have no liability whatsoever for withdrawal of the property.

SUCCESSFUL BIDDERS: The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer is the buyer. The auctioneer is the sole determinant as to who is the successful bidder. Once the auctioneer’s gavel falls, the successful bidder immediately assumes full risk and responsibility for the purchased lot.

DISPUTED AND REJECTED BIDS: The auctioneer reserves the right to re-open the bidding on the disputed lot. The auctioneer also reserves the right to reject nominal bids and to withdraw from the auction items that do not receive a bid reflective of an item’s worth. We make every attempt, for the benefit of both seller and buyer, to create lots that reflect the quality of our cataloged merchandise. Therefore, any lot not receiving an opening bid of at least $50.00 will be passed.

ESTIMATES & RESERVES: Presale estimates are intended as guides and may not be reflective of actual gavel price. Some of the items in this auction are subject to a reserve. The reserve is a confidential minimum price agreed upon by the consignor and Garth’s Auctions, Inc. The reserve will not be higher than the low estimate.

DEFINITIONS OF STATEMENTS: a) “Attributed to” – work is of the period of the named artist and may be the work of that artist, but not definitely so. b) “Circle of” – work of the period closely associated with the artist or from his studio. c) “School of” – work by a pupil or follower of the artist, in his style. d) “After” – in our opinion, a copy of the work of the artist. e) “Signed” – has a signature that in our opinion is the signature of the artist. f) “Bears signature” – has signature that in our opinion might be the signature of the artist.

PREVIEWS: We encourage our clients to come and examine the items before each auction. Preview times are listed in the forward of each catalog. The stage is closed during the auction. 100 | GARTH’S May 23, 2009

GARTH’S POLICY (continued) CONDITION REPORTS: Absentee bidders should call for an updated condition report. This report supersedes the catalog description.

ABSENTEE BIDS: Garth’s Auctions, Inc. accepts absentee bids including internet bids. These bids are given to an experienced bidder to execute competitively.

A $50.00 minimum bid is required on all lots. Absentee bids must be submitted in (a minimum of) $5.00 increments. Increments less than $5.00 will not be observed.

Introducing Garth’s Newest Hybrid... As many of you may know, our company has taken the “Antiques are green” slogan to heart – promoting our offerings as an ecologically friendly alternative to new furnishings and adopting green business practices wherever possible. In fact, we look at any new purchase or project, large and small, as an opportunity for responsible stewardship of our resources. Our dedication to walk the talk recently led us to the purchase of a hybrid vehicle for our sales fleet. The choice was obvious: looks great, economical, and gets the job done. As a result of the past 12-24 months of worrisome predictions and uncomfortable realities, consignors have been shaken to the core. More often than not these days, we are reassuring sellers that it remains an ok time to sell – that efforts to predict the return to pre-recession prices are futile. In fact, as we all know, price fluctuations are dependent upon more than solely economic condition(s). But, until consignor confidence meets consumer confidence, auctioneers and dealers will need to be agile enough to adjust their marketing and selling strategies to meet the market. These are the times that smaller may mean better: companies and individuals who can respond quickly to shifting market conditions will not only survive, but thrive. We believe Garth’s is well-positioned to create opportunity where others see challenge: re-focusing on the marketing to the middle, and waiting patiently for confidence in the highest end, where we shine, to return. As our July auction came together and the deadline for marketing materials loomed, it became obvious that this auction is the product of consignor and market shift. As a result, we needed another new vehicle – this time metaphorically speaking: a vehicle to bring to auction quality objects demanding an international audience, with a piercingly effective and efficient marketing strategy. While our catalogs have become quite eye-catching and a consignor favorite in the industry, the reality is that catalog events need to be of a certain “economic” formula to make good business sense. Additionally, recent changes to our Eclectic Auctions, including an online catalog, have yielded steadily increasing average lot values as well as greater national attention, but (as with most estate or house auctions) it still remains largely a regional venue. July’s auction is what we have half-jokingly referred to as our “newest hybrid”: with a quality overview of the offerings delivered to the largest database of Garth’s clients, additional print advertising and several new on-line venues, we believe we have bridged the gap between seven-figure catalogued auctions and the regional, vintage and collectible events – looks great, makes good business sense, and gets the job done. We hope you enjoy the innovations – and, look forward to talking with you about these and other relevant issues. The phone lines and doors are always open! Best Regards, Amelia and Jeff Jeffers
