FOOTNOTES. The name Gods Providence House is reputed to have been given due to the legend surrounding the building that stood here prior to the construction of this house. The original property, which is believed to date from the 13th century, is reported to have been the only one in a considerable area whose inhabitants escaped the plague that swept through Chester in 1647-48, which killed some 2000 in the city (the population at the time is estimated to have been only around 5000 or so) The original building was destroyed and the current house built in 1652. The facade of the house differing slightly in the postcard photograph as this details the later Victorian work visible today. The house’s future looked uncertain in the 19th century as the then owners looked to demolish it but were pressured not to do so by The Chester and North Wales

Architectural, Archaeological and Historical Society who campaigned against the loss of ancient and historic buildings in the city. Instead, the 19th century owners enlisted James Harrison in 1862 to add a more contemporary feel to the ancient facade in keeping with the trends of the day, resulting in the more decorative look that the building adopted from this time. known as a pioneer of ‘black-and-white revival’, Harrison’s work here has been described as “the first conservation case in the modern sense”*. God’s Providence House is located at No. 9 Watergate Street, Chester, Cheshire. The grade II listed house incorporates part of the Chester Rows. *As referred to in Cheshire, The Buildings of England, New Haven and London, Harwell, Hyde and Pevsner. £800 - £1,200

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO JEWELLERY BUYERS Prospective buyers please note that lots marked with ◉ may be subject to VAT on the hammer price. Prospective buyers should note that although every effort is made to note repairs, restoration and damage in the catalogue descriptions, a lack of any such note should not be taken to imply that the lot is in perfect condition. Prospective watch buyers should note that the working order of watches is not guaranteed. All weights stated in the catalogue are approximate only, these figures are for reference only and prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to the accuracy. Prospective buyers are reminded that coloured gemstones have historically been treated to enhance their appearance. A variety of methods have been, and are currently used to improve both transparency and colour of various gemstones. All yellow and white metals have not been tested. The International Jewellery Trade generally accept these methods. It is not possible for Halls to obtain gemmological reports on all stones offered for sale and therefore all Halls Holding’s estimates assume that gemstones have been enhanced.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO BOOK BUYERS Prospective buyers should be aware that general wear to include; creasing, light foxing, small tears, bumped corners, worn boards or weak spine/joints, will not be specified in the catalogue descriptions. Any substantial losses/wear to include detached boards, detached spines or extensive graffiti will be described as ‘at fault’. Prospective buyers must satisfy themselves with a condition report prior to bidding, Halls Holdings can take no responsibility for condition of purchased lots if condition reports were not requested.

IMPORTANT NOTICE Although every effort is made to note damage and restoration, the absence of such information does not imply that the lot is free from defects. Detailed condition reports and email images can be obtained on request until 4.00pm the day prior to the sale. 88
