Judith Howard - Collector, Curator and Bon Vivant “My mother caught the antiques bug early. When she was about six, an antiques dealer saw she was enthusiastic and said if she could guess what factory a cup was she could keep it; she cleverly spotted it as Caughley.” In this vignette, Charlotte Howard captures perfectly the precocious talent of her mother Judith, a well-liked and hugely respected scholar, dealer and collector, who sadly died after a long illness in January 2019 aged 73. A pupil at North London Collegiate, Judith was a very bright child, “but she was quite lazy, as her journals show,” says Charlotte. “Throughout her O and A Level years she kept writing about working at the V&A, but she didn’t really revise and instead seemed to spend a lot of time going to the pub and watching TV.” Diversions from her school work they may have been, but when it came to her professional ambition, there was no stopping Judith. The V&A was the only place she wanted to work and, eschewing university, she applied for a job there at 18. “In those days they never took applicants without a degree, but by sheer force of personality and determination, she persuaded them to make an exception in her case and she joined the textile department,” explains Charlotte. This led to a number of notable experiences, including helping Cecil Beaton to mount exhibitions. Later, she put the expertise she gained here and in business towards helping launch London Fashion Week. Despite bypassing university for the V&A, once there she returned to her studies, successfully completing a diploma in the humanities at London University in 1966. While textiles gave her a start at the V&A, she always wanted to work in porcelain and soon transferred to the ceramics department where she helped Svend Eriksen with his research, leading to a lifelong passion for Sèvres. Promoted to research assistant, it fell to Judith to act as guide to Sir Geoffrey de Bellaigue (Surveyor of the Queen’s Works of Art) while he inspected the V&A’s collection for his book about Sèvres. She also developed a passion for collecting, which inevitably led to dealing as she scoured the markets at Portbello, Grays, Alfie’s

and Antiquarius, where she struck up a friendship with Simon Wilson of Butler and Wilson. She also bought from Monty Don when he designed costume jewellery and sold it in his shop in Beauchamp Place. Continental porcelain was her passion and she was soon recognised as an authority on antiques. Leaving the V&A to conduct research and try her hand at dealing, she found herself with Arthur Negus as an expert on the popular TV programme Going for a Song. She later became the curator of the Bowood House Museum – “the exhibition she created there is pretty much extant to this day” says Charlotte – and lectured at Christie’s and Southampton College, as well as on a freelance basis across the south of England. When Judith married Alvin they moved to Wiltshire. He was an architect and there she dabbled in antique dealing. “She didn’t have a lot of money, so she would have to sell to buy and that’s really how she first developed as a dealer,” says Charlotte. “If she saw a beautiful opal ring she wanted, she would sell a couple of cameo brooches to buy it. Then she started dealing properly and that’s where her obsession came from.” In the end her collection numbered nearly 800 pieces of Sèvres. “Her collection was incredibly varied,” says Charlotte. “She didn’t have a massive budget, but she did have a sixth sense when it came to finding the gems among the dross. She was a magnet for rare antiques where you would least expect to find them. For instance, she once found a Josephine sugar bowl from the Egyptian service in one junk shop and a Louis XV Sèvres plate, mislabelled as Minton, in another junk shop in Marlborough.” When it came to organising her collection, Judith’s experience at the V&A proved a godsend. “She was very creative – a designer as well as a collector and very organised thanks to her museum background. She kept every receipt and wrote the catalogue number on the back – a curator’s dream. I think it partially came from her upbringing with a very strict mother and father, as well as from her education.” That organised mind also led to two books, written while Judith was still in her twenties: Carolian Fabrics and William and Mary Fabrics. Despite all this, Charlotte says: “My mother always felt that she hadn’t achieved greatness, but I wish she were alive now to see and hear what people are saying.” For those who first met her, Judith’s most striking aspect was her sheer charisma.

“She always wore bright colours and was immaculately dressed, with perfect nails and lots of beautiful 18th century jewellery, which she always wore when she visited the big antiques fairs to make everybody jealous.”

“Shopping was her greatest passion and she was on eBay all the time. She bought some awful things from the Franklin Mint and other places, but she didn’t care if she liked it. And she also found some treasures.”

Judith adored the Grosvenor House Art and Antiques Fair and, latterly, Masterpiece. She would also visit the Sunday fairs in London, at the Rembrandt and Mayfair.

Summing up her mother’s life, Charlotte says: “Looking back, she is what we would call a Renaissance woman, with the most eclectic tastes when it came to collecting, and she was a great writer and photographer.”

Clearly a champion of glamour, then, but also, as it turns out, a genius when it came to thrift. In the dark days of the three-day week in the 1970s as the economy suffered and things looked particularly bleak, Judith and Alvin became stars. In 1975, the BBC decided to launch a competition to find the nation’s most successful couple at making something out of nothing. Titled the Nationwide Supersave Couple of Great Britain, entrants were given £15, on which they had to survive for a week, throw a dinner party, make clothing and also make a piece of furniture. The Howards won and soon became household names, with Judith even securing a weekly column in Woman’s Own on how to save money and being sought out for tips and advice by the newspapers. “Remember, there were only three channels on TV then and, with an appearance on Blue Peter and other programmes they became famous quickly. When The Good Life came out a year later, my mother said it must be based on them.”

“She would have loved it if her Sèvres collection could have gone to a museum, but that wasn’t really an option for us,” explains Charlotte. “However, she would have been delighted with the fact that two of her pieces have gone to the Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon, where they are displayed with her name alongside.” The Waddesdon connection, especially, would have struck a chord: “She used to say that if her life had been different, she would have ended up running the Wallace Collection, but she was no diplomat. She loved people who were fun and eccentric, but couldn’t stand bores.” Charlotte’s favourite piece from her mother’s collection is lot 258 a Sèvres biscuit figure of a lady at a dressing table having her hair done. It’s the piece that reminds me of her the best,” she says.

Written by Ivan Macquisten

The legacy of this belt-tightening experience was Judith’s enduring passion for a maximalist interior decoration style, with her collections filling every bit of wall space and available nook and cranny. “When people have had it tough like that, they crave a bit of luxury and plenty, and this reflected that, I think,” says Charlotte. “She would be quite put out if visitors didn’t compliment her on how the house looked.” Keeping everything spick and span was another matter. “She used to dust once a year and we would all have to leave the house for the whole day. She hated that chore but it had to be done.” When ill health confined Judith to a wheelchair in her later years, it restricted her ability to visit her favourite antiquing haunts, so she turned to the internet.

1. A Vincennes lobed plate (assiette à cordonnet), c.1752, painted in puce camaieu with a reclining putto with arms outstretched towards a bird in flight, after François Boucher with gilt detailing to the cavetto and rim, blue interlaced Ls mark enclosing a dot, small rim chips, 24.5cm. £300-500 The assiette à cordonnet shape is first recorded at Vincennes in October 1752 when 242 examples were sold, 64 of them decorated ‘à enfants camayeux’, like the plate in this lot.

2. A Vincennes sucrier and cover, date code for 1754-55, the slightly waisted form painted by Jean-Louis Morin in puce camaieu to two sides with a putto amidst flowers, with further small scattered flower sprays, the cover with musical instruments and military motifs around an open flower finial, gilt dentil rims, interlaced blue Ls mark and date code B, painter’s mark M, 8.3cm high. (2) £600-1,000 Provenance: acquired from Malcolm HeygateBrowne, 11th November 1986. Cf. Bonhams, 26th November 2014, lot 289 for a similar cup and saucer.

A Vincennes or early Sèvres vase (vase à oreilles), c.1754-56, decorated possibly at a later date with blue camaieu panels of a putto 3. writing on a tablet amidst clouds and of instruments and other trophies, within gilt foliate panels on a yellow ground, blue interlaced Ls mark, £300-500 21.5cm. Provenance: purchased from Jean Sewell, 2nd July 1970. The veracity of this vase has been a source of some conjecture for Judith since she bought it. Correspondence with Dame Rosalind Savile in 1987 confirms that no examples of this vase are listed in the sales records with a yellow ground. However, it had previously been thought that the decoration was genuine. The vase has a special resonance as it is the first piece of Sèvres that Judith bought.

Heavenly Blue One of the main characteristics of Sèvres porcelain over its contemporaries is the use of bold ground colours. Starting with bleu lapis, the deep midnight blue that was used on the wares of Vincennes, probably to emulate the powdered blue grounds on Chinese porcelain, as the factory’s technical abilities improved so did the range of colours produced. A delicate yellow ground (fond jaune) was also used at Vincennes, taking its inspiration from a ground used on early services at Meissen. The colour was not an easy one to produce and early wares tend to be mottled and pale. By 1756 a solid green ground was introduced, coinciding with the factory’s move from Vincennes to Sèvres. Another influence from Meissen, the ground was sometimes known as fond vert de Saxe and used copper oxide as its colourant. A pink ground followed by 1758 and, a decade later, a richer blue colour known as beau bleu or bleu nouveau. Arguably the most celebrated of all the Sèvres grounds, however, is the rich turquoise colour known as bleu celeste or ‘Heavenly Blue’. Introduced in 1753, the ground uses a combination of copper and cobalt and was the most expensive ground colour produced at Vincennes and Sèvres in the 1750s. The ground was invented by the chemist, Jean Hellot, in 1753 specifically for an extensive dinner and dessert service ordered for Versailles by Louis XV. It was inspired by a similar ground colour on Chinese porcelain and would become a firm favourite with the Royal Court, including being used on later services for Madame du Barry. Much later, in 1776, a service using this ground was commissioned by Catherine the Great; taking six years to complete, the service was the most expensive ever produced at Sèvres and nearly resulted in the factory’s financial ruin. Despite new progressions into the production of hard-paste porcelain, the body was found to be unsuitable for the bleu celeste ground and so the traditional soft paste body persisted.

This fromager may have formed part of an ornithological service received by Louis-Charles-Auguste Le Tonnelier, baron de Breteuil on 16th April 1768, of which Aloncle is known to have decorated several key pieces. Two fromagers are listed as part of the original service, which was supplemented in 1771. Cf. David Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the 18th Century, Vol. II, pp.385-386, where this fromager is mentioned. Items from this service are believed to have been in the collection of Count A D Sheremetev, which was dispersed in London in 1906.

34.

It was presented on behalf of the king by Louis-Marie-Gabriel-César, baron de Choiseul d’Esquilly, French Ambassador to the Kingdom of Sardinia to Giuseppe Vincenzo, Count Lascaris, Minister and Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs for Sardinia, on 25 March 1771.

35. A Vincennes circular dish (plat d'entremets) from the first Louis XV service, date code for 175455, painted by Pierre-Antoine MĂŠreaud with a loose central spray of flowers, the moulded rim with three panels of further flowers reserved within gilt foliate and scroll borders on a bleu celeste ground, blue interlaced Ls mark enclosing the date letter B, painter's mark S, a section broken out and repaired with rivets, 31.5cm. ÂŁ20,000-25,000 The bleu celeste (heavenly blue) ground was created by the chemist, Jean Hellot, specifically for this service and it was the first time such a colour had been used on porcelain in this way. This service, the first full service that Vincennes had delivered, was first used on 4th February 1754 and remained in use until the end of the Ancien regime. 120 components were delivered to Louis XV at the end of 1753, with a further 133 pieces being delivered a year later. Factory records detail 28 plat d'entrĂŠes et d'entremets delivered among the third part of the service, on 31st December 1795, each at a cost of 240 livres, and it is likely that this is one of those. Items from the service remain in the collection at the palaces of Versailles, with a large part of the service in the collection of the Duke of Buccleuch at Boughton House (this part of the service apparently gifted to the duc de Choiseul and then sold to the Duke of Buccleuch by Beau Brummell). Provenance: purchased in Hungerford in 1982.

44. A Sèvres ice cup (tasse à glace) from a service ‘à rubans Bleu Celeste’, c.1769-70, painted with flower garlands entwined with a turquoise ribbon between narrow gilt bands, unmarked, 6.5cm. £1,000-1,500 Provenance: purchased in London, 20th May 1990. This service was ordered by Madame du Barry via her banquier, Jean-Baptiste Buffault in December 1769 and included 44 tasses à glaces at a cost of 24 livres each. Much of the service was passed back to Buffault in 1771 and sold by him to an English buyer.

45. A Sèvres triple salt (saliere à trois compartments), c.177090, painted to the exterior with scrolling blue ribbon edged with gilt dots and interlaced with garlands of polychrome flowers, the handles lacking, 10.3cm across. £100-200

A service of this pattern was ordered by Madame du Barry in 1769, see lot 44 . A service of the same pattern was ordered by M. de Beaujon, which included a number of triple salts. On his death in 1792, his service was bought by Princess Kandinski who then ordered supplements. It is likely that this salt is from Beaujon’s service or a later addition to it.

A service of this pattern was ordered by Madame du Barry in 1769, but the residue was sold to M. Buffault (probably the marchandmercier Jean Buffault) at the end of that year, with a supplement service ordered at the end of 1770. It is likely that this cup and saucer comes from that second supplementary service.

47. Five Sèvres ice cups (tasse à glace), c.1765-1790, one decorated with rubans bleu celeste interlaced with flower garlands after the service for Madame du Barry, another painted in the Vincennes manner in puce camaieu with a putto carrying a flaming torch, another painted by Louis-Gabriel Chulot with panels of pink roses on a band of oeil de perdrix, another painted with a band of flowers reserved in a gilt foliate panel on a bleu celeste ground, the last decorated in the 19th century with a putto holding a wreath within a gilt panel on a blue ground, varying interlaced Ls marks, two unmarked, damages and repairs, 6.3cm. (5) £300-400 Provenance: the puce camaieu cup from the Isaacson Collection. This cup was probably once part of an extensive Vincennes service with later Sèvres additions, which was sold at Sotheby’s in 1963 as part of the René Fribourg Collection. The oeil de perdrix cup from th Hector Binney Collection and believed to be part of a supplement ordered for the service made for the Comte d’Artois in 1786.

75. A Sèvres plate (assiette), possibly from the Bedford Service, date code for 1761, painted by François Binet with a central flower spray, the rim with three shaped floral panels reserved on a blue ground with a gilt vermiculé design, blue interlaced Ls mark enclosing date letter i, some gilt wear, a restuck rim chip, 24.2cm. £600-1,000 Cf. Rebecca Shaw, A Thing of Beauty is a Joy for Ever, pp.80-81 for a similar example. Provenance: purchased from Shepton Mallet, 18th November 2001. John Russell, 4th Duke of Bedford, was the British Ambassador to France between September 1762 and June 1763. An extensive dinner service was gifted to his wife, Duchess Gertrude, in recognition of the Duke’s work in negotiating the end of the Seven Years War in 1763.

76. A Sèvres ice cup (tasse à glace), c.1768-71, painted with a panel containing a small flower spray, within a gilt foliate border on a bleu lapis ground with gilt caillouté decoration, unmarked, 6.5cm. £1,000-1,500 Provenance: purchased from John Whitehead on 16th April 1989. The lack of a date mark makes the attribution of this ice cup to a specific service difficult. Gilt caillouté decoration had three main periods and this is likely to date from either 1768 or 1771. The Royal Danish Collection holds a service presented to Christian VII of Denmark when he visited France in 1768, but the decoration is also extremely close to a service made for Louis XVI c.1770, with similar examples in the collection at Woburn Abbey. For a discussion of this service see David Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the 18th Century, Vol. II, pp. 429-432.

The single ice cup is possibly part of a service ordered by Claude Bonnet (payeur des rentes, for the Court of Parma). Two identical ice cups are in the Royal Collection, No. RCIN 73232.

78. Two Sèvres ice cups (tasses à glace), date codes for 1788 and 1789, the first from the Service Bombelles and painted by Mme Noualhier with a panel of pink rose and another of cornflower, reserved on sprigged ground between narrow blue bands with gilt dots, the second from the Montmorin service and painted by Mlle Bouillat with a band of flowering fuchsia between blue borders with a gilt foliate design, blue interlaced Ls marks with date letters LL and MM, 6.5cm. (2) £300-500 The Service Bombelles is a duplicate of a pattern produced on a 1785 service sold to the Marquis de Bombelles, Ambassador to Portugal. It is listed in the inventory of 12th March 1789 as unsold. The second ice cup matches decoration on a service made for Armand-Marc Comte de Montmorin-Saint-Helen. This ice cup is from a service bought by the English dealer, Enoch Rittener of Albemarle Street.

79. A Sèvres ice cup from the service of Madame du Barry, c.1770-71, painted with stylized blue vases with flowers issuing, linked by further flower garlands, blue interlaced Ls mark, possibly some regilding, 6.5cm. £2,500-3,500 This service of Petit vases et guirlandes is the fourth of several ordered for or by Madame du Barry and was probably intended for use at the château de Louveciennes, which had been gifted to the Comtesse by Louis XV in 1769. The design is believed to have been carried by Augustin de Saint-Aubin. The service included 28 tasses à glace at a cost of 24 livres each.

80. A Sèvres stand (plateau Bouret) from the Attribus et groseilles service for Louis XV, c.1770-74, the lobed triangular form painted with three vignettes of trophies including a rake, sickle and cornucopia, a spade and basket of grapes, and a telescope, chart and drawing callipers, between gilt sprays of fruiting currant, all enclosed in simple blue foliate scrolls and encircling a small floral wreath, 21cm. £5,000-8,000 Provenance: purchased from Robert McPherson, 21st January 1989. Louis XV purchased in 1771, 1772 and 1773 a number of plateaux Bouret, compoters and saladiers described as ‘attribus et groseilles’, a style of decoration that was rather out of date at this time. The original service appears to have been ordered in 1763, but it is likely that this stand (and the one in the next lot) was one of six ordered on 13th June 1772. An ice cup from the same service, formerly in the Goldblatt Collection, is now at the Bowes Museum.

Louis XV purchased in 1771, 1772 and 1773 a number of plateaux Bouret, compoters and saladiers described as ‘attribus et groseilles’, a style of decoration that was rather out of date at this time. The original service appears to have been ordered in 1763, but it is likely that this stand (and the one in the previous lot) was one of six ordered on 13th June 1772. An ice cup from the same service, formerly in the Goldblatt Collection, is now at the Bowes Museum.

This service was ordered by Louis XVI on 11th May 1783 for use at Versailles.

David Peters records just two of these original plateaux as known survivals. Cf. David Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the 18th Century, Vol. III, pp.663-665. £1,500-2,000 Exhibited: ‘Tale of Two Cities’, Brighton, London and Paris, May-October 1989.

(3) £600-1,000 The Guirlande de Barbeaux service was ordered by Louis XVI on 11th May 1783 for use at Versailles. It was supplemented several times between 1784 and 1790. The dated cup in this lot was one of four sold at Christie’s in 1989 which is believed to have come from the 1790 supplement. Cf. David Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the 18th Century, Vol. III, pp.663-665 for the original service, and Vol. IV pp. 911-912 for the 1790 supplement.

84.

Cf. David Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the 18th Century, Vol. III, 83-2 and 85-2. Peters notes that a service in the same pattern was delivered on 30th December 1785 to Charles-Pierre Pécoul and items from this service are in the Bowes Collection at Barnard Castle.

43


85. Two Sèvres plates and a soup plate (assiettes et assiette à potage), date codes for 1792, painted by Jean-Jacques Pierre jeune, Hirel de Choisy and Charles-Nicolas Buteux, each with a central flower spray, the rim with sprays of pink rose, blue convolvulus and yellow jasmine within gilt leaf garlands reserved on blue borders, blue interlaced Ls marks enclosing date letters PP and above painter’s marks, the soup plate cracked, some filled rim chips, 24cm. (3) £250-350

(2) £300-400 The service these plates came from was sold to M. Verdier on 1st December 1791. A note from David Peters (dated 9th October 1991) records that the Artists’ Ledger references a set of eight soup plates against Philippine jeune on 9th June 1791. He left the factory one month later and David suggests that the soup plate in this lot may have been one of the last items he completed before his departure.

87. Two Sèvres plates (assiettes unie), c.1770-86, painted with scattered pink roses to the wells, the rims with oval panels of further roses reserved on a ground of green, red and gilt flowerheads or large gilt dots enclosed in oeil de perdrix hexagons, and a circular dish (compotier rond) decorated in the 19th century with the same pattern, varying interlaced Ls marks, 24.3cm max.

An additional order was placed on 21st September 1786 and included 29 plates. The other plate is from a similar service ordered by the marchand-mercier Bazin, with the compotier a later addition.

A Sèvres circular dish (compotier rond), date code for 1787, of Montmorin type, painted by Mme Fontaine with a design of fuchsia tendrils within narrow pale blue bands with a gilt foliate border, and a Sèvres soup plate (assiette à potage) from the Rittener service, date code for 1791, painted by Jean-Joseph-Philippe Boucot with a central spray of pink roses and cornflowers, the rim with formal flower sprays with a repeated sprig border, interlaced Ls marks enclosing date letters and above painter’s marks, gilder’s marks for Vandé and Prevost, some wear, 24.2cm max. (2) £400-600 The Montmorin service was made for Armand-Marc Comte de Montmarin-Saint-Hérem and was delivered on 24th May 1787. Much of it was purchased by Thomas, 2nd Marquess of Bath, and was sold at Christie’s in 2002 as part of the contents from Longleat. The pattern proved popular and was used on other, later services. The Rittener service was ordered by Enoch Rittener of 37 Albemarle Street, London and delivered on 4th March 1791.

94. A Sèvres plate (assiette unie), date code for 1785, painted by Mme Le Bel with design no. 129 Jardin pattern, with a central spray of roses, the rim with cornflowers and other flowers issuing from a jagged blue border, interlaced Ls mark enclosing date letters HH, and another plate similarly decorated with vases of flowers and further flowering plants issuing from a turquoise border, a central flower spray to the well, interlaced Ls mark and script Sèvres mark, painter’s mark for MichelGabriel Commelin, the latter probably with some later decoration, 24.3cm. (2) £200-300 The plate in the Jardin pattern is from a service purchased by Mme Victoire, daughter of Louis XV, of which Mme Le Bel is recorded as having decorated six plates. A plate from the same service, deborated by Mlle Buteux, is in the collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The second plate relates to a service produced in 1787-89 and held in stock until 1794. A supplement was ordered in 1796 but production halted before gilding had commenced. It seems likely that the gilding was added elsewhere during the 19th century and the interlaced Ls mark added at that time.

LOT SYMBOLS VAT Lots marked with an dagger (†) are subject to VAT on the hammer price. Lots marked with an omega (Ω) have been temporarily imported from outside the EU and are subject to VAT at 5% on the hammer price and the buyer’s premium. In online catalogues, the Sales Tax % column indicates the rate of VAT on hammer price. CITES REGULATIONS Please note that lots marked λ may be subject to CITES Regulations when exported. The CITES Regulations may be found at www.defra.gov.uk/ahvla-en/imports-exports/cites/

ARTIST’S RESALE RIGHT / DROIT DE SUITE Lots marked with a ‡ symbol are potentially subject to a levy. Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist’s heirs each time a work is resold during the artist’s lifetime and up to a period of 70 years after the artist’s death. Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price excluding the buyer’s premium. The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of €1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of €10,000. Droit de Suite, which is not subject to VAT, will be added to the buyer’s purchase price and then passed on to the relevant collecting agency. Please enquire for the accepted exchange rate on the day of the sale. Royalties for Droit de Suite are as follows: 4% Up to €50,000 3% €50,000.01 - 200,000 1% €200,000.01 - 350,000 0.5% €350,000.01 - 500,000 0.25% In excess of €500,000 Up to a maximum levy of €10,000 FIREARMS Lots marked Ƒ in the catalogue, or by any other means identified as controlled firearms, are subject to the UK firearms/shotgun licencing regime, and should only be viewed/purchased by individuals with appropriate licences. It is the responsibility of the bidders to ensure that they are legally entitled to acquire the lot(s) that they are bidding for. In the event that such a lot is successfully bid for by an individual who is not authorised to possess it, that individual will be required to pay for it, but may not take physical possession of it. The auctioneers will reoffer the lot on behalf of the buyer in a future auction, or may accept instructions to dispose of it by some other legal means, at their discretion.


SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS

TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS

1 . Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand. 2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller. 3. Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive. 4. The purchase price. The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4% inclusive) thereafter. 5. VAT. (†) indicates that VAT at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The omega symbol (Ω) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax. 6. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale). 7. Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. 8. Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment. 9. Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding. 10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax. 11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash). 12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges.

1. Interpretation. In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers. 2. Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above. 3. Removal costs. Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility. 4. Loss and damage waiver. We are not regulated by the FSA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. To justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. If the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable. 5. Illustrations. The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue. 6. Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7. 7. We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve. . Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8. Electrical items. These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. 9. Soft furnishings. The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977, Schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request. 10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. The liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it. 11. Unsold and withdrawn items. If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate.


12. Withdrawn and bought in items. These are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAT of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued.

(c) Bidders shall be deemed to act as principals. (d) Our right to bid on behalf of the seller is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve and the right to refuse any bid is also reserved.

13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking.

3. INCREMENTS Bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer’s sole discretion.

14. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain premium and interest. (a) You authorise us to deduct commission at the stated rate and all expenses incurred for your account from the hammer price and consent to our right to retain beneficially the premium paid by the buyer in accordance with our Conditions of Sale and any interest earned on the sale proceeds until the date of settlement. (b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. 16. Settlement. Subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACS or cheque 5 weeks after the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of Sale. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days from the date of sale.

The completion of the sale of a Lot will be postponed or cancelled at our discretion if further time is needed for investigation, or if you are in breach of your warranties as a buyer, or if we consider the sale to be unlawful or in any way cause liabilities or be detrimental to either Woolley and Wallis or the Seller. 7.

THIRD PARTY LIABILITY All members of the public on our premises are there at their own risk and must note the lay-out of the accommodation and security arrangements. Accordingly neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury (except as required by law by reason of our negligence) or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to or at a sale.


10. COMMISSION BIDS Whilst prospective buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition, we will if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so save where such failure is unreasonable. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made. 11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY The seller warrants to the auctioneer and you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 12. AGENCY The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers. 13. TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot. 14. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (a) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 ‘information to buyers’. (b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 15. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale.

22. Prior written consent must be sought by the buyer or any other party for the use of any images, illustrations and written materials produced by or for Woolley & Wallis relating to a lot or sale, including the contents of a catalogue. Copyright for any of the aforementioned will remain the property of Woolley & Wallis, subject to the provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Woolley & Wallis and the seller make no representations or warranties that the buyer of a lot will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights to it. PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS, LITHOGRAPHS, ENGRAVINGS AND PRINTS In accordance with long standing practice in Fine Art Sale Rooms certain terms used in descriptions in the Catalogue have the meanings ascribed to them in the glossary below. Glossary Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age, provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact. The Company reserves the right, in forming their opinion, to consult and rely upon any expect or authority considered by them to be reliable. (a) Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by the artist. (When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named. (b) Attributed to Edward Lear: In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainly as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. (c) Studio of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist which may be or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. (d) Circle of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified but distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. (e) Style of ...; Follower of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or nearly contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil. (f) Manner of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. (g) After Edward Lear: In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. (h) The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. (i) The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. (j) Dimensions are given height before width. (k) Pictures are framed unless otherwise stated. BOOK AUCTIONS If, on collation, any named item in this catalogue proves defective in text or illustration, the lot may be returned within 14 days of the sale with the defects stated in writing. This proviso shall not apply to defects stated in the catalogue or announced at the time of sale; nor to the absence of blanks, half titles, tissue guards or advertisements, damage in respect of bindings, stains, spotting, marginal tears or other defects not affecting completeness of text or illustration; nor to drawings, autographs, letters or manuscripts, signed photographs, music, atlases, maps or periodicals; nor to books not identified by title; nor to books sold not subject to return.

GENERAL 16. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 17. (a) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate.

Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail or Swiftmail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 19.

Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect.

ARTIST’S RESALE RIGHT / DROIT DE SUITE

21. English law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.

Lots marked with a ‡ symbol are potentially subject to the levy.

Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist’s heirs each time a work is resold during the artist’s lifetime and up to a period of 70 years after the artist’s death. Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price excluding the buyer’s premium. The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of €1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of €10,000.
