Russian Works of Art from the Collection of The Late Jan Bethge Esq.

Jan Bethge was a most kind and gentle person. He was very private but not withdrawn and always extended a warm and generous welcome to his home where a bottle of bubbly cooling in a bucket remained on hand over long chats about Russian art, colleagues and friends. When Jan moved to London from Schnackenburg, a quiet town on the River Elbe in Germany, it was during the heady days of the swinging 60’s. He was no doubt seduced by the many possibilities that this city of ‘innovation, iconoclasm and fun’ offered, and from that time onwards made it his principal residence. He found himself in the circle of an international set of artists, photographers, ballet dancers, art dealers and deposed Russian aristocracy. He settled in part of a house belonging to Maude Lloyd, a retired ballet dancer and her husband, Nigel Gosling, art reporter and critic at The Observer, and he remained at this address for the rest of his life. It was in this Kensington house that Rudolf Nureyev took shelter when he dramatically defected to the West in 1961, and throughout his life he returned to the ground floor flat that the Goslings kept for him in Victoria Road. At the promising age of twenty, Jan entered the art world of London, then the ‘epicentre of style’, with his very first job at the renowned dealers of Chinese and Japanese art, Bluett & Sons. He soon developed his artistic flair and knowledge to become the window dresser for the gallery, and generally assisted the directors, James Bluett and Brian Morgan. This was excellent early training and the experience eventually led to the start of his passion for art and a long lasting partnership with Nicholas Lynn and their antique shop in Kensington Church Street in West London, The Winter Palace. Nicholas Lynn was a dashing American art dealer, passionate about Imperial Russia. They were joined in the partnership by Margot Tracey, a former Russian aristocrat, fashion model, Portobello trader and author of The Red Rose. From this shop many important Fabergé items and historical art works were traded. A strong liaison was struck between The Winter Palace and the leading Russian art dealers in Paris, Alexandre Djanchieff of À la Vielle Cité and Elliott Baruch of Popoff & Co.

All three establishments benefitted from their location in cities where many impoverished Russian aristocrats had migrated to and were forced to sell their artworks. There was always a steady flow of wonderful treasures such as Imperial diamond‑set and guilloché enamelled cigarette cases by Fabergé; jewellery; colourful watercolours by Benois or Chekhonine and the finest array of porcelain plates from the Imperial Manufactory. All of these items appealed to their many international collectors for their Imperial provenance, as well as for the romantic and tragic history that befell the Romanoffs. The business ran until the early 90’s when the associates decided to cease trading and some of the collection was dispersed through a number of auctions. The lots being offered for sale here formed part of this extraordinary collection, and are the last items from the The Winter Palace. Alice M Ilich

124 OREST ADAMOVICH KIPRENSKY (RUSSIAN 1782-1936) PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG WOMAN SAID TO BE AMELIE ADLERBERG inscribed, and inscribed verso (see note) coloured chalk 21.5cm x 24.5cm (8.5in x 9.75in) £2,000-3,000

AMALIE ADLERBERG (1808-1888) Born in June 1808 in Darmstadt, Amelie Lerchenfeld was the illegitimate daughter of Duchess Therese of Mecklenburg‑Strelitz and the Bavarian diplomat Maximilian‑Emmanuel Graf von und zu Lerchenfeld auf Köfering und Schönberg. Amalie’s mother was the aunt of Empress Alexandra Feodorovna (Princess Charlotte of Prussia), the wife of the Russian Emperor, Nicholas I. With her husband away working for Napoleon in Paris, Princess Therese had an affair with Count Maximilian‑Emmanuel von Lerchenfeld and Amelie was the result. With the death of her father in 1809, Amalie was placed in the care of Therese’s von Sternfeld relatives in Hesse/ Darmstadt and took their name. Later, with her name now changed to Satrgard, she was taken up by her father’s family, moving to the Lerchenfeld Palace in Munich and their castle at Regensburg. Finally, formally granted the name Von Lerchenfeld in 1823, at the age of 15, she settled in Munich. While there, she met Fyodor Tyutchev – the celebrated Russian poet, then a junior diplomat. Tyutchev fell in love with Amalie and dedicated numerous poems to her. Despite their mutual love, in 1825 Amelie married an older man, Baron Alexander von Krüdener (1786-1852), a wealthy, titled diplomat and effectively Tyutchev’s superior. Nevertheless, Tyutchev and Amalie continued to see each other and their tortured affair continued. In Munich in the late 1820s Amelie became a society beauty. King Ludwig I of Bavaria was ‘spellbound’ by her and ordered her portrait to be painted by Joseph Stieler in 1828. In 1836 Krüdener was promoted and the couple moved with their young family to Saint Petersburg. There she promoted Tyutchev’s poetry, gaining the attention of Sergey Pushkin, editor-in-chief of Sovremennik, the major literary journal of nineteenth-century Russia, which published many of the poems. Amalie became well known in Saint Petersburg society. Tzar Nicholas himself was captivated by her, and, although no clear evidence of a relationship exists, we do know that Amalie received presents from him, including a fur coat. In 1848, following an affair with Count Nikolai Adlerberg, Amelie gave birth to an illegitimate son. While her husband was promoted to Ambassador to the King of Sweden and Norway, Amelie now chose to remain in St Petersburg. They never met again and following

Krüdenenr’s death in 1852, Amelie married Adlerberg in 1855. She devoted her later life to charitable works, opening an orphanage and living in Helsinki with her husband, then Governor General of Finland, before settling in Munich where she died in 1888. OREST KIPRESNKY (1782-1836) Orest Adamovich Kiprensky was a prominent Russian Romantic artist. Born near St Petersburg in 1782, the illegitimate son of a landowner, he was raised as a serf but with the help of his natural father, from the age of six, studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St Petersburg. Following considerable acclaim, and a further period of study in Naples, Kiprensky settled in Moscow from 1809 and from 1812 in St Petersburg. In mid-May 1816, having been appointed Adviser to the Academy of Arts, he was given state support to travel to Italy and, from 1816 to1822 lived in Rome and Naples. While in Rome he was involved in a scandal involving the death of one of his life models, a girl named Mariucci, who was found dead in Kiprensky’s quarters. A few days later, in a local hospital, Kiprensky’s servant, a young man, also died. Kiprensky maintained that the model had been murdered by the servant, but some said that he himself had committed the murder. With the police unable to solve the crime, Kiprensky placed the murdered girl’s ten year old daughter Anna Maria in a convent and left Rome for Paris, but with the story becoming more widespread, in 1823 he moved on to Russia. It would appear to have been during this journey that he might have had the opportunity to make the drawing of Amelie Adlerburg which forms the current lot, either at Munich, Regensburg or at the spa town of Marienbad where we know he paused en route for Russia, making two drawings of Goethe. Back in Russia, from 1823, Kiprensky continued to pay for Anna Maria Mariucci’s upkeep and in 1828 he took her on as his ward. Seven years later, returning to Rome, on meeting the now 17-year-old Anne Maria, he fell in love with her. Although 36 years her senior, he converted to Catholicism and in 1836, married her. Sadly however, the marriage was not happy and three months later, Kiprensky died of pneumonia. A few months later, Kiprensky’s daughter Clotilde was born and Mariucci subsequently sold her inheritance - a large number of her husband’s works - to the St Petersburg Academy of Arts.

The ball took its curious name on account of the death of Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, who had died in mysterious circumstances with his teenage mistress at the Mayerling hunting lodge in Austria a few days earlier. In fact it later emerged that the couple had made a suicide pact and their tragic love story has since been immortalized in many films and plays, principally the two 1936 and 1968 movies both entitled Mayerling. According to protocol, the ball should have been cancelled. However, the Russian Empress Maria Feodorovna insisted that the event would still take place, three days beforehand informing the guests that there would now be a black dress-code. It is possible that, by doing so she sought to repay the Austrian royal family for not having mourned the

death of a Russian Royal family member a few years earlier. Whatever her motive, as the work here shows, the guests successfully prepared anew their ball costumes and the ball went ahead as planned. The artist has inscribed Prince Rudolph’s name inside two decorative ribbons at the top of the painting. The painting is divided into three sections representing different episodes of the ball. The top section shows the Russian Emperor Alexander III standing third from the right. The bottom left illustration probably depicts an amusement which is inscribed in French as “it is just a hard time to go through.” Similarly, the bottom right image portrays the royal orchestra with a conductor and a dancing crowd. It is inscribed as “he is just a uniform”. Both inscriptions might be a cutting reference to the deceased Prince. Mihály Zichy, born in Hungary in 1827, died in Saint Petersburg in 1906, originated from a noble Hungarian family. Moving to Russia in 1847, he rose to become a court artist in 1859 and produced numerous paintings of the life of the imperial court in the periods between 1859 to 1873 and 1880 to 1906. Zichy was admitted to Saint Petersburg’s Academy of Art for his works depicting the coronation of Alexander II. £5,000-7,000

54 Lyon & Turnbull ALEXANDRE BORISOVICH SEREBRIAKOFF Alexandre Serebriakoff was a celebrated Russian‑French illustrator, particularly known for his paintings of interiors. Serebriakoff was born in 1907 in Neskuchnoe, in the Kurskiy region (modern Ukraine). His mother, Zinaida Serebriakova was herself a prominent artist, who originated from a famous family of architects, sculptors and painters from Benois-Lancere. In 1905 she had married the engineer Boris Serebriakoff. Having trained in Saint Petersburg, Italy and Paris, she became one of the most prominent “World of Art” [Mir Iskusstva] painters of pre-revolutionary Russia.

decades, when in 1960 Zinaida met her two other children after 36 years of separation.

The family’s situation changed drastically with the 1917 Revolution. In 1919 Boris Serbriakoff was imprisoned by the Bolshevik government and died in captivity, leaving Zinaida with four children and a sick mother in the war-torn and starving Ukraine. In 1924 however, Zinaida was commissioned to undertake a large project in Paris.

Serebriakoff became well‑known as a specialist interior painter, specifically for his paintings of Paris’ hôtels particuliers, painting Daisy Fellowes’ rooms at the Paris Ritz in 1948 and the Parisian apartment of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Le Château de Groussay. During his lifetime the artist showed his work in numerous group exhibitions in France and Belgium.

She initially planned to return to Russia after the completion of her work, but it was unwise to do so due to the country’s continuing political instability. Only two of her four children Alexandre and Ekaterina, managed to escape to France and the family would not be reunited for

134 ALEXANDRE BORISOVICH SEREBRIAKOFF (RUSSIAN 1907-1994)

Alexandre Serebriakoff remained in Paris for the rest of his life. A largely self-trained artist, he adopted the tradition of the “World of Art” movement and predominantly worked in watercolour and gouache, producing highly realistic interiors in a traditional style. He also worked as a book illustrator with French and British publishers, and collaborated with the renowned grocers Maison Fauchon, along with French cinema and fashion magazines.

It is known that Alexandre’s sister Catherine, who also worked as an interior painter, collaborated with her brother on many projects, however, her signature often does not appear on the artworks, as she preferred Alexandre to sign the paintings himself.

Russian Works of Art 57 A LA VIELLE RUSSIE This series of drawings and watercolours were created as part of a collaboration between Alexandre Serebriakoff and the Paris‑based Russian antique dealers, A La Vielle Russie and are records of the decorative scheme Serebriakoff created for their shop windows and first‑floor library. A La Vieille Russie, was founded in Kiev in 1851 but left the turmoil of the Revolution to be re-established in Paris in the 1920’s by the descendants of the original owner. In its original incarnation, Carl Faberge, who held a premises nearby, was a client. The business continued to flourish in Paris, with many high‑profile clients including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. It ultimately became a focal point for socialising among European high-society. At the start of the Second World War, the gallery relocated again, to New York City, taking over premises in the Rockefeller Centre. In America it became the market leader for Fabergé and Russian Imperial treasures, assisting in the formation of some major museum-quality collection. Still a family business, A La Vieille Russie continues to deal in fine art and antiques from Fifth Avenue, New York.

157 WORKSHOP OF CHRISTIAN DANIEL RAUCH (GERMAN 1777‑1867)

WHITE MARBLE BUST OF TSAR ALEXANDER I, CIRCA 1810 carved with head slightly tilted 47cm high Note: Christian Daniel Rauch was the foremost German sculptor of his day, becoming court sculptor apprentice in 1790. In 1797 he was appointed groom of the chamber on behalf of the King’s household. Rauch’s talent for sculpting was brought to the attention of Queen Louisa of Prussia who made arrangements for him to be educated at the Academy of Art. He subsequently went onto study in Rome where he became friends with other great sculptors, Canova and Thorwaldsen. In 1802, Rauch accompanied the King and Queen during a visit to Memel to meet with

Tsar Alexander. Some years later, Rauch met the Tsar again on the 4th October 1815, when he visited Berlin with the Allies. It is thought that it was on this occasion that the arrangements were made for a portrait bust of the Tsar to be sculpted. An entry from Rauch’s diary on the 7th of November 1815 indicates that he began sculpting the bust at 1pm, and according to Fredrich Eggers, the first biographer of Rauch, the Tsar duly attended to his business until he was required to look up for the purpose of the bust, although he remained distracted throughout the sitting. There are a number of busts of the Tsar known, including those in the National Museum’s collection in Warsaw, in Pavlovsk Palace, Chatsworth House and in Skulpturensammlung, Albertinum, Dresden. These vary in date from 1815, 1818, 1820 and latterly in 1832. £6,000-8,000

92 Lyon & Turnbull

Note: The design for this magnificent statuary marble chimneypiece, which combines French influences with mid 18th century Georgian features in the ‘picturesque’ manner, is representative of the English Rococo period. The chimneypiece unites strong Palladian influences with the softer, more sinuous lines evolving in the middle of the 18th century and relates to the ‘Basso Relievos’ and monuments executed around 1750 by the celebrated sculptor Sir Henry Cheere (d. 1781). The very fine carving of the morning glory and floral sprigs spreading out from the central ‘pelta’ scroll cartouche suggest themes of Dawn, Springtime, and the Feminine, while the bold corner pilasters with their Roman Ionic whorls, cartouches, and triumphal palms speak of the Masculine, drawing on Classicism and Palladian themes. The chimneypiece was installed in the Octagonal Drawing Room of Minto House, in Roxburghshire, by the decorators W. Turner Lord & Co., 120 Mount Street following their estimate for works at Minto dated 18 September 1891. The history of Minto House, reads like a who’s who of Scottish architecture. The original 16th century tower was enclosed in a house designed by William Adam circa 1740, expanded by Archibald Elliot at the beginning of the 19th century, further altered by William Playfair in 1837, and finally enlarged by Robert Lorimer at the end of the 19th century. It’s floorplan had an unusual V shape, with two large blocks radiating out from a central axis containing an entry hall, stair and octagonaldrawing room. Owned for several centuries by the Elliott family and the Earls of Minto, the house, like many houses throughout the country, suffered in the post‑war years. From 1952-1966 it housed Craigmount School for girls, after which it sat empty and neglected, slowly sliding into disrepair. Despite objections from historical authorities, Minto House was demolished in 1992.

The ‘Director’ was first published on 23rd March 1754 as ‘The Gentleman & Cabinet Maker’s Director’ and immediately became an important reference work, not only for cabinetmakers, but as a style guide for the fashion consciousness who embraced the new style of the Rococo and the exoticism of ‘Chinoiserie’. Pier-glasses, with their pagoda-swept canopies attended by exotic birds perched on gothic rustic pillars were the ultimate evocations of this fashionable style. Similar designs for mirrors were widely published in following years including examples illustrated in Collection of Designs, by Thomas Johnson in 1758 and his One Hundred and Fifty New Designs of 1761. The fashion for all things Chinese had been popular in London from the 1740s and had in turn been a revival of a style prevalent in the late seventeenth century. The enthusiasm endured for over two decades as Chippendale published further designs in the third edition of his Director in 1763. Later, in the middle of the 19th century a further revival of the Rococo style was seen in England and many designers and furniture makers turned once again to Chippendale’s ‘Director’ for inspiration, as in the fine example offered here. £12,000-18,000

Breadalbane and Holland, the title created on 13th August 1681. The form of this bookcase has stylistic similarities to bookcases designed by Robert Smirke (1780-1867) for the library at Kinfauns Castle, Perthshire although at the time the seat of the Breadalbanes was at Taymouth Castle, Perthshire. The 4th Earl of Breadalbane and Holland, created Marquess of Breadalbane in 1831, was succeeded by the 2nd Marquess in 1834. He completed the improvements from 1838, by the remodelling of William Adam’s west wing, which was enlarged and refaced to match the main block. This time the architect was James Gillespie Graham, with interiors designed by A. W. N. Pugin. These works were complete by 1842, in time for the first visit to Scotland of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, when they stayed at Taymouth for three days. £8,000-12,000

Note: The original coloured example of this urn was designed by Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson (1817-1875) for the Garnkirk stand at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and is now held at Glasgow’s Museum and Art Galleries. Thompson was a visionary Scottish architect who rejected the Gothic style that prevailed in Britain in the 1850s and 1860s and strove to resuscitate the principles of Greek architecture. The urns depict a bridal procession on the frieze, modelled by John Mossman (1822‑1863) and the urns are early examples of how Thomson managed to combine Greek principles and industrial design. £5,000-7,000

Bidding increments shall be at the Auctioneer’s sole discretion.

This symbol § indicates works which may be subject to the Droit de Suite or Artist’s Resale Right, which took effect in the United Kingdom on 14th February 2006. We are required to collect a royalty payment for all qualifying works of art. Under new legislation which came into effect on 1st January 2012 this applies to living artists and artists who have died in the last 70 years. This royalty will be charged to the Buyer on the hammer price and in addition to the Buyer’s premium. It will not apply to works where the hammer price is less than €1,000 (euros). The charge for works of art sold at and above €1,000 (euros) and below €50,000 (euros) is 4%. For items selling above €50,000 (euros), charges are calculated on a sliding scale. All royalty charges are paid to the Design and Artists Copyright Society (‘DACS’) and no handling costs or additional fees are retained by the auctioneer. Resale royalties are not subject to VAT. Please note that the royalty payment is calculated on the rate of exchange at the European Central Bank on the date of the sale. More information on Droit de Suite is available at www.dacs.org.uk.

(h) Online Bidding: We will use reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the internet or software malfunctions related to execution of online bids/live bidding. 4. INCREMENTS

Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate prevailing by law at the date of sale and is payable by Buyers of relevant lots. (1) Lots affixed with (†): Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with a dagger (†). This imposition of VAT maybe because the Seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating under a Margin Scheme. (2) Lots affixed with (*): A reduced rate of Value Added Tax on the hammer price of 5% is payable. This indicates that a lot has been imported from outwith the European Union. This reduced rate is applicable to Antique items.

It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import licence. The denial of any licence or any delay in obtaining licences shall neither justify the recession of any sale not any delay in making full payment for the lot. 10. REMEDIES FOR NON·PAYMENT OR FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES (1) If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with these Conditions or if there is any other breach of these Conditions, we, as agent for the Sellers and on their behalf, shall at our absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights we may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies: (a) to proceed against you for damages for breach of contract; (b) to rescind the contract for sale of that lot and/or any other lots sold by us to you; (c) to resell the lot (by auction or private treaty) in which case you shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due (after crediting any part payment and adding any resale costs); (d) to remove, store and insure the lot in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere and to recover from you all costs incurred in respect thereof; (e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.5% per month above the current base rate on all sums outstanding for more than 7 working days after the sale; (f) to retain that or any other lot sold to you until you pay the total amount due; (g) to reject or ignore bids from you or your agent at future auctions or to impose conditions before any such bids shall be accepted; (h) to apply any proceeds of sale of other lots due or which become due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due by you and to exercise a lien over any of your property in our possession for any purpose until the debt due is satisfied. 11. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) 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 only accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and no warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are given. Please note that photographs/images provided may not be fully representative of the condition of the lot and should not be relied upon as indicative of the overall condition of the lot. (2) Condition reports: Condition reports are provided on our website or upon request. The absence of a report does not imply that a lot is without imperfections. Large numbers of such requests are received shortly before each sale and department specialists and administration will endeavor to respond to all requests although we offer no guarantee. Any statement in relation to the lot is merely an expression of opinion of the Seller or Lyon & Turnbull and should not be relied upon as an inducement to bid on the lot. Lots are available for inspection prior to the sale and you are strongly advised to examine any lot in which you are interested prior to the sale. Our condition reports are not prepared by professional conservators, restorers or engineers. Our condition report does not form any contract between Lyon & Turnbull and the Buyer. The Condition Reports

do not affect the Seller’s obligations in any way.

http://www.defra.gov.uk/ahvla‑en/imports‑exports/cites/

(3) Estimates: Estimates are placed on each lot to help Buyers gauge the sums involved for the purchase of a particular lot. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT. Estimates are a matter of opinion and prepared in advance. Estimates may be subject to change and are for guidance only and should not be relied upon.

Lyon & Turnbull accepts no liability for any lots which may be subject to CITES but have not be identified as such.

(4) Catalogue Alterations: Lot descriptions and estimates are prepared in advance of the sale and may be subject to change. Any alterations will be announced on the catalogue alteration sheet, made available prior to the sale. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to make themselves aware to any alterations which may have occurred. (5) Electrical Goods: are sold as “works of art” only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. Use of such goods is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties as to safety of the goods are given. (6) Upholstered items: are sold as “works of art” only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with current safety regulation. Use of such goods is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties as to safety of the goods are given. Lyon & Turnbull provide no guarantee as to the originality of any wood/material contained within the item. (7) Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items (Books, Jewellery, Paintings, Guns, Firearms etc.) in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing in the catalogue. These notices and terms will also form part of our terms and conditions of sales. 12. BOOKS, CLOCKS & WATCHES, DIAMONDS & GEMSTONES (1) Books-Collation: If on collation any NAMED item in the sale catalogue proves defective, in text or illustration the Buyer may reject the lot provided he returns it within 21 days of the sale stating the defect in writing. This, however, shall not apply in the case of unnamed items, periodicals, autographed letters, music M.M.S., maps, drawings NOR in respect of damage to bindings, stains, foxing, marginal worm holes or other defects not affecting the completeness of the text NOR in respect of Defects mentioned in the catalogue, or at the time of sale, NOR in respect of lots sold for less than £300. (2) Clocks & Watches: All lots are sold “as seen”, and the absence of any reference to the condition of a clock or watch does not imply the lot is in good condition and without defects, repairs or restorations. Most clocks and watches will have been repaired during their normal lifetime and may now incorporate additional/ newer parts. Furthermore, Lyon & Turnbull makes no representation or warranty that any clock or watch is in working order. As clocks and watches often contain fine and complex mechanisms, Buyers should be aware that a general service, change of battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is solely responsible, may be necessary. Buyers should also be aware that Lyon & Turnbull cannot guarantee a watch will remain waterproof if the back is removed. Buyers should be aware that the importing watches such as Rolex, Frank Muller and Corum into the United States is highly restricted. These watches cannot be shipped to the USA and only imported personally. (3) Diamonds & Gemstones: Please note that diamonds and gemstones cannot be accurately graded and measured when mounted in jewellery. Unless it is stated in the catalogue and condition report that the item is accompanied by an independent report by a named gemmological laboratory, the information provided about the colour, clarity and size of a gemstone is the opinion of our department jewellery specialists. Please note in the event that Lyon and Turnbull has been given or has obtained certificates for any lot in the sale, Lyon and Turnbull nor the Seller accepts any liability for contradictions or differing certificates obtained by Buyers on any lots post sale. Diamonds and gemstones are not unmounted by the department, therefore any information provided in this instance is an approximate understanding of the quality of the gemstone under these limitations. Without an independent report the department are generally unable to give an opinion on any potential treatments a gem material has been subjected to. Many gemstones and diamonds have been subjected to a variety of treatments to enhance their appearance and unless stated buyers should presume gemstones/diamonds have been exposed to some sort of treatment. 13. CITES Please be aware that all lots marked with the symbol Y are subject to CITES regulations when exporting these items outside the EU. These regulations may be found at

14. SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY (a) The same Conditions of Sale (Buyers) shall apply to sales by private treaty. (b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction and subject to our agreed charges for Sellers and Buyers. (c) Lyon & Turnbull undertakes to inform the Seller of any offers it receives in relation to an item prior to any Proposed Sale, excluding the normal method of commission bids. (d) For the purposes of a private treaty sale, if a lot is sold in any other currency than Sterling, the exchange rate is to be taken on the date of sale. 15. 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, safety and security arrangements.

Bidding At the Sale Registered bidders will be assigned a bidder number and given a paddle for use at the sale. Once the first bid has been placed, the auctioneer asks for higher bids in increments determined by the auctioneer. To place your bid, simply raise your paddle until the auctioneer acknowledges you. Please ensure that the auctioneer repeats your bidder number correctly when confirming the sale. If there is any doubt at this stage as to the hammer price or buyer it must be brought to the auctioneer’s attention immediately.
