Mauchline Ware The success of ‘Mauchline Ware’ owes its fame, in part, to the Smiths of Mauchline initially manufactured by brothers, Andrew and William Smith, who produced wares from the 1820s. It became an industry which was to dominate the market for wooden souvenirs during most of the Victorian era. During the course of the 19th century the factory developed new pieces, shapes and sizes and finishes. The company responded to the new Victorian taste for holidays and souvenirs, as commercial railways were developed and seaside

trips became increasingly popular and their wares were despatched to all parts of the British Isles, Europe, North and South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The Smiths’ innovations ensured the success of their business and earned them The Royal Warrant, enabling them dominate the ‘fancy goods’ market. The business rejuvenated the local economy in Mauchline, and inspired many other makers of similar wares in Scotland until its closure in the 1930s.

MOULDED BORDER WITH TREFOIL DETAIL TO HEXAGONAL POINTS, ENGRAVED SCOTCH CHURCH, OLDHAM STREET, LIVERPOOL (2) Diameter: 24cm Note: Up to 1793 there was no church for the many Presbyterians who had moved from Scotland to Liverpool until Oldham Street Kirk was opened in 1793 with seating for 820 people. The first minister was the Rev. William Kirkpatrick from Dumfriesshire. In January 1824, Dr Thom assisted in forming the Presbytery of the North West of England, and then Rodney Street Kirk was opened on Friday 3rd December 1824. In 1907, when the Oldham Street Church closed, the majority of the members were accepted into Rodney Street Kirk and became one congregation. By 1975 the Church was over 250 years old and a large sum of money would be required if the building was to be put in order. This, coupled with the fact that the building was far too big for a small congregation, made it obvious that alternative premises would have to be found.

The Dean of Liverpool agreed to a suitable room in Liverpool Cathedral for the Church of Scotland for Sunday services. The Rodney Street Kirk closed in 1988 and has since been redeveloped into student accommodation, which opened in 2015. £150‑250

The Mackenzie Sculptures The following five lots form an impressive group of figurative stonework by two leading 19th century Scottish sculptors, Sir John Robert Steell RSA (1804-1891) and Robert Forrest of Carluke (1789-1852). When building a house on his small estate in the Scottish Borders in the 1920s, construction company owner Murdoch Mackenzie purchased a number of figurative sandstone sculptures to adorn his garden. Carved by the Lanarkshire-born Robert Forrest, the romantic figures of Charles XII of Sweden and Robert the Bruce became eye-catching features in the attractive woodland setting of the estate. Continuing the family’s tradition of integrating sculptural artwork in the landscape, Mackenzie’s son, the late Donald Mackenzie, added John Steell’s ‘Providence’ to the collection in the 1970s, flanking it with two stone putti, and mounting the associated maquette for the larger piece on the wall of the greenhouse on-site.


44 Lyon & Turnbull

Robert Forrest of Carluke Robert Forrest (1789‑1852) was born in Carluke, Lanarkshire, in 1789, where he became a stonemason. His early works were of small animals, but he soon caught the attention of the local gentry from whom he received encouragement and patronage. His first commission was of a Highland Chieftain in 1817, but his first major piece was a statue of William Wallace, which resides in a niche in the Tolbooth in Lanark. In 1822 he sculpted his most recognised work, which is the statue of Lord Melville that tops the column in St Andrew Square, Edinburgh. Forrest’s main sources of inspiration came from historical and literary figures, and he was heavily influenced by Romanticism and the poetry of Robert Burns (1759‑1796) and Allan Ramsay (1686‑1758). As a result, his works take on a distinctly Romantic and sentimental attitude and often depict historical figures with particular significance to Scotland, such as Mary, Queen of Scots and Walter Scott. In addition, his works tend to have a narrative element, encompassing or making reference to a historical event, myth or work of literature.

and a replica Swiss cottage built. Statues of a lion and a unicorn stood at the top of steps in front of the main house and steps lead down through grass terraces to a red stone fountain with water coming from the mouth of a salmon held in the jaws of an otter. Around the house and in various positions in the glen the statues carved by Robert Forrest were arranged. The house and estates remained in the Watson family until 1958, however when Earnock House was demolished in 1926 the statues were sold through a Hamilton‑based auctioneer and purchased by Murdoch Mackenzie for his estate in the Scottish Borders.

View of the garden at Neilsland and Earnock Estates, Hamilton showing a sculpture by Forrest in situ. View of Calton Hill, Edinburgh showing the huts where Forrest displayed his sculptures. In 1829, the subscriptions to build the Parthenon monument on Calton Hill were running out and the Royal Association of Subscribers to the National Monument were looking for more funding. In 1831, however, Michael Linning (1775‑1838), who had been secretary to the Melville Monument Subscribers Committee and was also the secretary to the Royal Association of Subscribers to the National Monument, announced that he had secured access to a free supply of stone. He proposed that Robert Forrest create a collection of equestrian statues to be exhibited on Calton Hill to maintain and promote interest in the project. These became his ‘Duke of Wellington’, ‘Duke of Marlborough’, ‘Mary, Queen of Scots with Lord Herries’, and ‘Robert the Bruce and the Monk of Baston’. While the monument was never finished, the statues remained on Calton Hill for the next eighteen years. Forrest continued to expand the exhibition, sculpting ‘Charles XII of Sweden and a Cossack Prince’, ‘Tam O’Shanter and Souter Johnny’ and ‘King James V and the Gypsy’ among others. However, in 1834 Linning declared bankruptcy and died suddenly in the midst of having his property seized. This resulted in the Trustees demanding £800 from the Monument Association, which they could not pay. To meet this, the Association started charging Forrest rent for the display of his sculptures, which gradually increased until 1849, when he could no longer pay. Forrest had his sculptures removed, some of which went to Cheshire, whilst others, on Forrest’s death in 1852, were left to Edinburgh City Council. When eventually sold through Lyon and Turnbull in 1876, the principal buyer at the auction was David Mitchell, former head gardener to the Duke of Hamilton. Mitchell bought on behalf of the coalmine owner, Sir John Watson (1819‑1898), for the Neilsland and Earnock Estates in Lanarkshire. The purchases included ‘Charles XII of Sweden and a Cossack Prince’ and ‘Robert the Bruce and the Monk of Baston’. In 1873 Watson developed his policies, under the direction of Mitchell. Tor Lake at Torhead was constructed and a varied selection of trees planted to form an arboretum on both sides of the glen. A rockery was created

CHARLES XII OF SWEDEN AND A COSSACK PRINCE, CIRCA 1844 carved sandstone raised on a plinth Dimensions: 160cm x 190cm Provenance: Robert Forrest (1789‑1852) The City of Edinburgh, from 1852 With Lyon & Turnbull, 1876 Sir John Watson 1st Baronet of Earnock (1819‑98) and by descent at Earnock and Neilsland Estates, Hamilton, until 1926 L.S. Smellie & Sons Ltd., Hamilton, auctioneers, 23rd January 1926 Murdoch Mackenzie and thence by descent Note: Charles XII was the King of Sweden from 1697‑1718. He came to the throne when he was fifteen and, taking advantage of his youth and inexperience, the surrounding countries, including Denmark, Norway, Poland and Russia, launched an attack on Sweden and Charles’s Imperial lands. In response, he led a formidable military campaign, defeating multiple armies whilst vastly outnumbered. Once he had regained his own land, he carried on fighting, conquering swathes of Northern Europe; but he was eventually thwarted by Peter the Great of Russia during his march on Moscow. He was then exiled to the Ottoman Empire and he died in his later attempt to retake his land. His death marked the dispersal of the Swedish empire and the end of absolute monarchy in Sweden, bringing in the first parliamentary government in continental Europe. He features in Lord Byron’s poem Mazeppa (Ivan Mazepa was the Cossack leader with whom Charles allied himself in his later campaign). The poem is a recounting of Mazeppa’s love affair with a Countess Theresa and it is to Charles that the story is narrated. This is the poem and scenario on which Forrest based his sculpture. £5,000‑7,000

Sir John Robert Steell John Steell (1804‑1891) was born in Aberdeen in 1804, but moved to Edinburgh with his family in 1807. He entered into an apprenticeship with his father, who was a carver and gilder, and trained at the Trustees’ School of Design. Just five years after going into partnership with his father in 1824 he resolved to become a sculptor and travelled to Rome. On his return in 1830, he was made a member of the Royal Scottish Academy. During the course of his career he became one of the most important and esteemed sculptors of nineteenth century Scotland, being made sculptor to the Queen in Scotland in 1838. He is known for several famous statues including the statue of Queen Victoria atop the RSA building on Princes Street, Edinburgh, the statue of Sir Walter Scott in the Scott Monument, also on Princes Street, and Edinburgh’s Prince Albert Memorial monument in Charlotte Square, for which he received his knighthood in 1876. In 1832 he was commissioned to design his first architectural piece, the current lot, which would adorn the entrance to the St Andrew Square, head office of the Scottish Widows’ Fund and Life Assurance Society in Edinburgh. It was based on the decorative emblem that was used on the society’s policy documents. The sculpture depicts Providence, who is the divine representation of the ability to make provision, with a cornucopia with fruit and vegetables spilling from it. To her left is a child holding a bulging sheaf of wheat. On the left of the sculpture sits a mourning widow, shawled and seated in a Madonna‑like fashion, surrounded by her children who look up at her. On the right of the sculpture is a headstone, signifying the lost husband, with the date AD MDCCCXV (1815) inscribed on it, which was the year of the society’s establishment.

View of lot 182, above the door of Scottish Widows’ office, 141 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, 1860. In 1859 the society’s offices were moved a few doors down and the sculpture was relocated to their Glasgow branch on Buchanan Street. From there it was removed some time before the building’s demolition in the 1970s, at which point it was stored in the basement of the old Scottish Widows’ building at 9 St Andrew Square. The sculpture was subsequently gifted to Donald Mackenzie who placed it in his garden.

19TH CENTURY with comb back above a solid seat, raised on turned legs linked by stretchers Width: 59cm, height: 108cm, depth: 37cm Literature: Jones, David, ‘Darvel Chairs’, Regional Furniture Society, 1995 Hunter, Stephen, ‘Darvel Chair Update’, Regional Furniture Society Note: The manufacturing town of Darvel, some twenty‑four miles south of Glasgow was a centre of production for linen cloth and cotton muslins during the 18th and 19th centuries. As a result of the booming trade, the population of the town increased by 75 per cent, thereby inviting a steady income and arena for furniture making too. Timber (particularly elm and ash) was plentiful and woodworking skills were developed to a high level, thanks to the local tradesmen making looms for the textile industry. Although there were changes in the industry, chair production continued during the 19th century, and extended beyond the town of Darvel into areas east of Glasgow. The chairs are characteristic due to their shape and construction, with “idiosyncratic seats, which correspond exactly with the shape of the arm bow” and it is noted that “the seats have ‘ears’ at their front corners”, according to David Jones. £250‑350

210 SCOTTISH BORDERS & GALASHIELS INTEREST: TWO ARTS & CRAFTS ELM LOW CHAIRS EARLY 20TH CENTURY carved by Tom Hislop, en suite with the previous lot, each with carved top rails, one inscribed GALA with pierced splat below carved with the inscription AULD CORN MILL, 45cm wide, 82.5cm high, 41cm deep; and the other inscribed SOOR PLOOMS with splat carved with two foxes by a plum tree, 45cm wide, 80cm high, 37cm deep (2) £300‑500 Note: In 1337 a group of men from the border town of Galashiels came across some English raiders resting in a field, eating unripe wild plums. The Galashiels men attacked and killed them and, in doing so, saved their town from raids. In commemoration of this event, not only was a boiled sweet created and sold, called a ‘soor ploom’, but the town’s motto also became ‘soor plooms’ and the crest became an image of two foxes reaching for the fruit of a plum tree. It is also this event that is celebrated during Galashiels’ annual Common Riding. This is a tradition in many border towns, whereby a principle townsperson is elected who leads a procession to celebrate historical events during which individuals risked their lives to protect the town. These principles have different titles depending on the town; in Galashiels they are known as Braw Lads or Lasses, which was taken

from Robert Burns’ poem ‘Braw Lads o’ Galla Water.’ The tradition of Common Riding originated in the thirteenth and fourteenth century. At this time, the principle would be selected by the local lord to patrol the town boundaries in order to protect it from raiding parties, which were common at the time. After the necessity for this practice diminished, it was carried on ceremonially to celebrate local legends and history. Galashiels’ current tradition began in 1930. The ‘Braw Lads Gathering’ has also come to commemorate three other historical events: the engagement of James IV to Margaret Tudor (1503), whose descendants brought about the union of the crowns (1603) and the Treaty of Union (1707); the granting of a Charter as Burgh of Barony to the people of Galashiels (1599), thus establishing the town as an independent unit; and as an homage to the war memorial for those from Galashiels that died in the First World War 1914‑1918.

Note: Silver work by James R. MacKay is rare and most work which features his mark is silver plated with him acting as retailer rather than maker. This rare example in silver shows a punch unique to his silver work. It would also appear that he was the last maker to use a local town punch of ELGIN in full.

322 PERTH – A SCOTTISH PROVINCIAL TABLESPOON

JOHN AND FRANCIS BROWN Marked IB, armorial shield twice, FB, of Hanoverian pattern, with deep bowl, the reverse of the terminal engraved WF/SG, with double drop heel and beaded and engraved fleur de lys ‘rat tail’ Length: 20.1cm, weight: 59.5g Note: The working careers of John and his son Francis Brown is somewhat confused. Although recorded in Perth as early as 1724 they appear to have worked in Edinburgh and possibly Elgin as well. No marks have been confidently ascribed to either of these periods and all their work is tied to Perth. The marks they used fall into three groups (all with the very recognisable IB and FB maker’s marks), with PERTH in full, a large Fleur de Lys and, as seen on this spoon, what appears to be an armorial bearing. The use of the armorial bearing has not been explained and the use of the punch is certainly their rarest. Its large size means that when encountered it is often poorly struck leaving details hard to ascertain. This example is one of the best noted. The double drop and engraved ‘rat tail’ is also a feature unique to these makers in Scottish silver and shows much closer comparison to continental European work than British. Where this influence and the use of the fleur de lys comes from is unknown for makers with a Scottish pedigree and no obvious continental European connections. For another example of this mark ex Sir John Noble Collection, see Lyon & Turnbull, Fine Scottish Silver, 19th August 2013, lot 452

His legacy is not confined to his output of fine silver, which encompasses various civic items, including the Maces for the City of Dundee in 1954 and that of the Deacon Convener of the Nine Trades of Dundee in 1953. He will also be remembered for his influence on a much wider sphere of Scottish silversmith and jewellers as the head of Silversmithing and Jewellery Department at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. He held this position from 1943 until 1974 influencing a generation of students.

The discovery left more questions than answers as no grave goods were found (apart from a broken pot). There was evidence of burning and more unusually no other excavated Cairn had been found with a coffin underneath. £500‑700

JOHN FINDLAY, GLASGOW 1840 of single struck Queens pattern with vacant terminal and deep round bowl Length: 37cm, weight: 8.6oz £150‑180

Heraldry: The crest is that of the family of Hering or Herring. It may be blazoned as follows:

355 A SET OF SIX WILLIAM IV TABLE FORKS

Crest: A dexter arm in armour embowed in the hand a dagger all proper

Length: 20cm, weight: 13.5oz

Motto: Arma tuentur pacem [Arms maintain peace] Note: From an evidential point of view, it is found that a Captain Julines Hering (or Herring), of Heybridge in the County of Essex and of Pauls Island in the Parish of Westmorland on the Island of Jamaica used this as his crest with the motto as cited above displayed in the Scottish fashion, whilst the second motto of the family: ‘Fortitudine non vi’ [With fortitude not force] is found below their arms. It is certainly known that he petitioned the Earl Marshal of England via his solicitor for a confirmation of the arms that his family anciently bore when living in the Counties of Warwickshire and Salop (Shropshire). He was the grandson of John Hering who had served as the Mayor of Coventry in 1612. From this evidence, one may assume that this piece of Scottish silver was in all probability acquired by Captain Hering either whilst resident in Jamaica or, perhaps, more likely from the London market and thereafter engraved with his crest. Certainly, from an examination of a published pedigree of the family there appears not to be an overt Scottish connection. £800‑1,200

363 A RARE SUITE OF THREE GEORGE IV TUREENS

ALEXANDER EDMONSTONE, EDINBURGH 1823 retailed by Alexander Murray of Dundee, comprising a large soup tureen and cover and a pair of vegetable tureens, liners and covers, each of oval outline with baluster bellied form with cast acanthus handles and scroll supports, the pull off covers on domed form with gadrooned border and shell details, with cast artichoke and foliate finial, each piece with engraved armorial to body and crest to cover (3) Soup – width: 39.5cm weight: 102oz, vegetable – width: 23cm weight: 37oz each Heraldry: The engravings may be blazoned as follows: Arms: Argent a man’s heart gules ensigned with an Imperial crown proper on a chief azure three mullets of the field

Note: These arms pertain to the ancient Scottish lowland family of Douglas. They are generally borne as a quarter, either undifferenced or differenced, in order to show which branch of the family they pertain. Often the other quartering with which they are borne is difference enough. Here is shown the ‘plain’ arms of Douglas which should ordinarily be borne by the chief of the family/clan which is vested in the Douglas‑Hamiltons, Dukes of Hamilton (and Brandon) as Heirs Male of the House of Douglas since 1761, but as the Dukes of Hamilton (and Brandon) bear the compound surname of Douglas‑Hamilton they cannot at present be recognised as the Chiefs of the Clan Douglas. Although it cannot be stated with any degree of certainty, but given the penalties for using arms without authority in Scotland, perhaps this tureen was indeed part of the household silver of the Douglas‑Hamiltons or another branch of the family who could very well prove their Douglas antecedents with a fair measure of certitude. £12,000‑18,000


78 Lyon & Turnbull 364 A RARE PAIR OF GEORGE III SURGICAL/MEDICAL SCISSORS

EDINBURGH 1816 by JH (unknown), of conventional scissor form with loop handles and tapered point Length: 16.5cm, weight: 43.7g Note: During the 19th century Edinburgh lead the world in the study and practice of medicine and surgery. It is therefore not surprising that the upper class worlds of the silversmith and doctor/surgeon met in creating fine instruments. Indeed, even from the times of the ancient Greeks, the purifying and antibacterial properties of silver were known and its use in treatments considered a great benefit. £200‑300

365 A LARGE GEORGE III SALVER

WILLIAM & PATRICK CUNNINGHAM, EDINBURGH 1802 of circular outline with reeded rim and engraved arched inner border, the centre engraved with armorial, raised on four bracket feet Diameter: 46cm, weight: 84.5oz Heraldry: They may be blazoned as follows: Arms: Gules a chevron ermine between three antique crowns or Crest: A Roman fasces erect proper Motto: Leges juraque serva [Observe the laws and ordinances] Note: The family of Grant of Kilgraston, in the County of Perthshire are lineally descended from the Grants of Grant, the Chiefs of the ancient clan of Grant. The Kilgraston Grants were originally designated ‘of Glenlochy’, but this estate was alienated from the family by Patrick Grant of Glenlochy in the County of Inverness‑shire. The family bore as their crest: ‘A mountain in flames proper’ and used this motto: ‘Ferti citi flammas’. It was Patrick’s eldest son, John Grant (died 28th March 1793) who served as the Chief Justice of the Island of Jamaica from 1783 to 1790, who later purchased the estate of Kilgraston. The crest and motto as engraved on this salver were granted to John Grant (now designated ‘of Kilgraston’) by the Lord Lyon King of Arms in substitution of his family’s original crest and motto by Letters Patent dated 21st December 1790. As will be noted, the new crest and its accompanying motto reflected John’s career as a lawyer. So, with this evidence alone (together with the presumed date of manufacture) we may conclusively say that this salver was certainly in the possession of John Grant of Kilgraston between the granting of his new crest and motto in 1790 and his death three years later in 1793. John married Margaret Macleod, the sister of Sir Alexander Macleod, Lord Bannatyne, a Lord of Session. As there were no children from John and Margaret’s marriage, the Kilgraston estate was inherited by his brother, Francis Grant. £2,500‑3,500

WILLIAM ROBERTSON, EDINBURGH 1792 of shaped circular outline with cast foliate scroll border, the inner semi spiralled fluted panels with alternating pierced designs, raised on simple collet feet Diameter: 13cm, combined weight: 9.5oz Note: Although in style these baskets look similar to baskets from a larger epergne, these are both fully hallmarked – rather than part‑marked as expected for epergne baskets – and this dispels this theory. They would appear to be a rare pair of sweetmeat/fruit or dessert baskets. £300‑500

374 A GEORGE III COMMUNION CUP

ALEXANDER GAIRDNER, EDINBURGH 1784 the deep bowl with slightly everted rim engraved to the obverse within laurel cartouche ‘Relief Church Paisley 1785’, engraved to opposing side within similar cartouche ‘Drink abundantly o beloved for my blood is drink indeed’, raised on a tapered knopped stem and slightly domed circular foot Height: 21cm, rim diameter: 12cm, weight: 16.9oz £2,000‑3,000

80 Lyon & Turnbull

377 A GEORGE III TABLESPOON

DAVID DOWNIE, EDINBURGH 1788 of Celtic Point pattern, engraved script initials IL to terminal, numbered to stem 10 Length: 22cm, weight: 1.8oz Note: David Downie was born to an Edinburgh watchmaker and a former housekeeper in around 1736. He was taken on as an apprentice by William Gilchrist, the Deacon of the Incorporation of Goldsmiths and then married in 1773, after establishing his trade in Edinburgh. The following three decades were a time of significant social and political upheaval. Civil unrest was brought on by the influx of the population into cities and the huge commercial competition caused by the industrial revolution. This, combined with increasingly popular Enlightenment political ideas, manifested in and encouraged by the successful American War of Independence (1776‑1783), the French Revolution (1789), and the economic strain inflicted by the French Revolutionary Wars (1792‑1802), increased calls for political reform and created an atmosphere of anxiety within the establishment. The Incorporation of Goldsmiths, however, had a reputation for conservatism and anti‑radical sentiment, releasing statements supporting the establishment on multiple occasions. David Downie, however, is thought to have been the only Catholic in the Incorporation and is known to have made enemies of other members known for their conservatism. He became increasingly involved with radical politics, attending radical conventions and contributing to the formation of various radical committees. In 1794, he and his associate, Robert Watt, plotted to occupy various public buildings in Edinburgh, seize the Castle and demand of the King the dismissal of government and Parliament, the instigation of a democratic constitution and a withdrawal from the war in France. Prior to its undertaking, however, Downie and Watt were arrested and found guilty of high treason, (the first trial of its kind since 1709) for which they were sentenced to be hung, drawn and quartered. This particular sentencing is seen to be significant as its severity caused reluctance in later juries to find people guilty of high treason. Three days before they were due to be executed they were given reprieves; Watt’s sentence was reduced to being hanged until dead, while Downie’s sentence was reduced to a year’s imprisonment and subsequent banishment from Great Britain. On his release, he emigrated to Augusta, Georgia, USA, where he died on Christmas Day in 1816. For further information please see, Fortescue, W.

Scottish Hallmarked Silver 81

381 A GEORGE III TEAPOT AND STAND

WILLIAM DEMPSTER, EDINBURGH 1776 of inverted pear form with chased floral swag and scroll cartouche, hinged dome cover with gadrooned rim and cast finial, C scroll handle and fluted scroll spout, together with matching stand of oval form, with gadrooned and engraved borders, raised on four hoof feet (2) Height of teapot: 16cm, width of stand: 18cm, combined weight: 28oz £1,200‑1,800

382 A RARE GEORGE III DRUM TEA CADDY

BY WILLIAM KERR, EDINBURGH 1772 The drum formed caddy with finely engraved border of foliate decoration around rim, keyhole pendant cartouche with crest and motto within, flush hinged lid similarly engraved with cast fruiting bud finial to centre, with original steel key Height: 12cm, diameter: 9.5cm, weight: 10.2oz Note: This fine tea caddy represents a very rare survivor of Scottish silver. The use of tea caddies in Scotland would have been as commonplace as elsewhere in Britain, however the survival of Scottish‑made silver tea caddies are extremely rare. Even into the third quarter of the 18th century, when tea drinking and silver tea wares were far more common and accessible. It has often been considered that either the fashion in Scotland was for wooden caddies, with various examples of Scottish origin known, or that specialist makers in England were supplying the trade in Scotland with silver examples. Both theories seem to carry weight and these combined perhaps give reason to the rarity of such fine Scottish-made examples. £3,000‑5,000

383 A GEORGE III WAITER

ROBERT CLARKE, EDINBURGH 1773 of shaped circular outline with cast shell and scroll border and chased fruit, floral and foliate inner border around an engraved crest, raised on three hoof feet Diameter: 19cm, weight: 9oz £300‑500

Scottish Hallmarked Silver 83 395 A GEORGE II SPIRIT KETTLE AND STAND

WILLIAM AYTOUN, EDINBURGH 1749 Assay Master Hugh Gordon, the body of inverted pear shape design with finely chased border of flower head clusters within scroll and shell borders, with twin vacant cartouches, the domed hinged cover with spiralled foliate decoration emanating from a cone finial, the whole raised on a tripod stand with leaf capped S scroll and shell supports with integral burner suspended and pierced scrolling borders Height: 36cm, weight: 56.3oz £5,000‑8,000

396 A GEORGE II BULLET TEAPOT

JAMES KER, EDINBURGH 1742 Assay Master Edward Lothian, of slightly compressed bullet form with finely chased floral, shell and fruit border, the interior grill finely pierced in scrolling patterns, swan neck curved spout and C scroll wooden handle with carved thumbpiece, raised on a simple short stem and domed foot Height: 14.6cm, weight: 19.1oz £2,500‑3,500

397 A GEORGE II MUG

DOUGAL GED, EDINBURGH 1734 Assay Master Archibald Ure, the body of slight baluster form with slightly flared rim and engraved crest and motto, resting on a socle foot, with simple S scroll handle with plain thumb piece Height: 7.5cm, weight: 5oz Heraldry: With crest and motto of VIRTUTI FORTUNA COMES Fortune is the attendant of virtue for MAYNE of Powis and Logie, Clackmannanshire, derived from the MAINS of Lochwood, co. Stirling Provenance: Pheonix Collection Lyon & Turnbull 30th November 2010, lot 310 Literature: ’Compendium of Scottish Silver II’ R & J Dietert, illustrated plate 54, listed page 363 £1,500‑1,800


84 Lyon & Turnbull 398 A RARE GEORGE I SUGAR BOWL AND COVER

HENRY BETHUNE, EDINBURGH 1725 the deep hemispherical plain bowl with engraved crest, raised on a short stem and domed spreading foot, the pull of stepped cover with flat central section, the rim with matching engraved crest Diameter: 11.8cm, height: 9.5cm, weight: 12.5oz Note: When compared to the survival of early teapots the rarity of early sugar bowls becomes much more apparent. However, when this is looked at more closely it would appear that fewer than 20 per cent of these still have their original cover. While it cannot be guaranteed that all were created with a cover, it does appear that the finest tea services had covered sugar bowls and, in some cases, covers which could be used as a tea pot stand as well. Examples of this pattern are obviously meant to match with the fine bullet teapots of the period and when looked at closely the scale of the bowl matches, almost identically, the size of the teapots. This, combined with the use of the same short stems and domed feet, would appear to suggest these are the beginning of the matching tea service. This said, at this early period it would only have been very high status clients who would have been able to afford a full tea service in silver, again pointing to the rarity of some of the constituent parts which would likely have been supplied in porcelain or ceramics. £6,000‑10,000

399Y A FINE GEORGE I BULLET TEAPOT

HENRY BETHUNE, EDINBURGH 1725 the spherical body with tapered spout and bold S scroll handle with ivory insulators, the domed cover with ball finial and cast moulded hinge, the whole raised on a short stem and stepped domed foot Height: 16cm, weight: 20oz

Note: Although the earliest Scottish bullet teapot dates to 1714 this is rather an anomaly in its survival as most early Scottish teapots are of the more conventional apple form. It was perhaps not until just after 1720 when the classic bullet teapot takes over from this form and would become a favourite of Scottish makers for the next 50 years. This example is therefore among the earliest of the true bullet teapots and shows the fine skills of the maker to create an apparently simple, elegant spherical body and cover with bold handle and balanced tapered spout. £5,000‑8,000

402 GED, WILLIAM

BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS OF WILLIAM GED including a particular account of his progress in the art of block printing. Newcastle: E. Charnley, 1819. 8vo, one of 160 copies signed by Thomas Hodgson, later paper covered boards, a little dampstaining Notes: William Ged, Edinburgh Goldsmith, was apprenticed to Robert Inglis in 1697. He became a Freeman on producing a plain gold ring and a silver tankard with John Penman and Patrick Murray as his assay masters in 1706. Although recorded as a Goldsmith, Ged’s lasting legacy is the process which he invented to print whole pages from cast plates, known as stereotyping, an invention he made between 1725 and 1727. The new process helped revolutionise the printing methods in Britain and indeed help Edinburgh and the Royal Mile to be one of the centres of book printing. Although the process become widely adopted, Ged did not reap the full reward as he was taken advantage of through various poor partnerships, and his legacy did not give him either the financial or personal renown it should have. £200‑300


86 Lyon & Turnbull 403 A RARE WILLIAM III DOG NOSE SPOON THOMAS KER, EDINBURGH 1696 Assay Master James Borthwick, the wide dog nose terminal with engraved initials M/AG/IL, the large bowl with reeded rat tail Length: 18.9cm, weight: 52.4g

Note: This Dog Nose spoon appears to be one of the earliest of the pattern recorded of Scottish manufacture. The majority of the pattern are made post 1700 and it is very unusual to see one before the turn of the century. Originally from a group of three this example pairs that sold in these rooms within the inaugural Fine Scottish Silver & Accessories auction 13th February 2008, lot 368. £3,000‑5,000

A Private Collection of Jacobite Glass


406 A SCARCE ENGRAVED JACOBITE ALE GLASS

18TH CENTURY the deep drawn trumpet bowl engraved with displayed rose head flanked by single bud and foliage, raised on a tapered stem with elongated tear drop air bubble raised on a domed circular foot Height: 19.5cm, diameter of rim 6.5cm, diameter of foot 7.5cm £800‑1,200

407 AN UNUSUAL JACOBITE TRAVELLING GLASS

18TH CENTURY the rounded funnel bowl wheel engraved with displayed rose head flanked by open and closed buds, to the opposing side with oak leaf and motto Fiat, raised on an air twist stem and slightly domed rounded foot 7.6cm high, diameter of rim 4.5cm, diameter of foot 5.6cm Note: This glass is highly unusual in style and seems to have few, if any comparisons, within the Jacobite survival. The exact use of this glass is unknown as it does not have the typical heavy foot of a firing glass of the period. It has previously been considered as a travelling glass, perhaps fitting into a wooden or leather fitted case. The engraved decoration to this glass shows some close similarities to the recorded work of Engraver A, the style of lettering to the motto Fiat and the detail within the rose buds show the closest comparison. £1,000‑2,000


408 A JACOBITE ENAMEL TWIST FIRING GLASS 18TH CENTURY the ogee bowl with finely engraved sweeping thistle with crown above, raised on a short multi white enamel twist stem and thick circular foot Height: 9cm, diameter of rim: 5cm, diameter of foot: 6.4cm £1,000‑2,000

409 A FINE JACOBITE PORTRAIT WINE GLASS

18TH CENTURY the conical bowl with finely engraved portrait of Prince Charles in tartan jacket with bonnet, with motto ‘Audentior ibo’ below, the opposing side with engraved displayed rose head flanked by twin buds, raised on a plain stem and domed circular foot Height: 15.5cm, diameter of rim: 6cm, diameter of foot: 7.4cm Note: Jacobite wine glasses engraved with such bold and obvious portraits of Prince Charles are a rare survival. Indeed, such an obvious show of support in any form for the Jacobites is unusual. Considered by many the peak of wheel engraved glasses, these must surely have been owned not only by the higher ranking supporters but also those confident in their safety and situation, as owning such pieces would have been considered treason. This finely engraved glass appears to be by the hand of Engraver A. The fine quality and detail seen to this portrait and the roses is very typical of his work. £3,000‑5,000


90 Lyon & Turnbull 410 AN IMPORTANT SILVER MOUNTED JACOBITE WINE GLASS

MOUNTS BY PATRICK MURRAY OF STIRLING CIRCA 1745 marked to underside of base PM in shield cartouche, the large drawn trumpet bowl above a tapered stem with internal tapered tear drop air bubble, the foot set with a stepped domed silver foot with wide flat rim, mounted to glass stem set in red sealing wax with six lobes engraved GOD BLIS KING JAMES THE EIGHT Height: 17.5cm, diameter of rim: 9.2cm, diameter of foot: 8.7cm Provenance: Bruce of Cowden family collection By direct descent to Hon. Bruce Ogilvy Sotheby’s 1924, where sold as The Bruce of Cowden ‘Amen Glass’ Private Collection Mr. T Waugh Collection (sold Sotheby’s) Note: This iconic glass not only connects the story of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, Jacobites and the art they left behind, but crosses into the lives of ordinary supporters who would in the end pay the ultimate price for their support of the Jacobite Cause. The Bruce of Cowdens glass allows us the rare opportunity to say who was involved in the making of such an object, rare in many forms of Jacobite art, other than portraiture. While the maker of the glass still remains anonymous in this case, perhaps more interestingly and importantly, the man tasked with preserving such an important object is known: Patrick Murray, Goldsmith in Stirling. Firstly, we must consider the need for the repair to a relatively simple plain glass. Family history suggests that the glass was broken by the Bruce family after it had been drunk from and the toast given to ‘The King Over the Water’ by Prince Charles Edward Stuart himself. Charles is recorded in the area during the ‘45 and was likely gathering support and men to continue the uprising. It is considered likely he met with Bruce of Cowdens, an important member of the local community, to garner such support and dined with them, using this glass. The tradition of breaking glasses after the toast so that no lesser toast could be given from the glass is regularly discussed and indeed a glass with such tradition, and a later wooden foot, from the Thriepland of Fingask collection was sold within these rooms on 13th May 2015, lot 5. The repair in itself is not only interesting but confirms the true Jacobite nature of the glass, otherwise just a simple plain 18th century drinking glass. Patrick Murray of Stirling has been a goldsmith little considered and almost totally overlooked until recently when a pair of Hanoverian pattern tablespoons by his hand were sold (within these rooms 13th August 2014, lot 341). Currently recorded are only one other pair of spoons (from the same original set), the foot to this glass, and a pair of

sugar tongs (in Jersey Museum) are all that is known by his hand. The maker’s mark (no town or other marks are recorded with his work) to the foot of this glass is by far the best preserved striking of his mark. Little is recorded about Murray other than to say he was working in Stirling as early as 1732. No record of his training or apprenticeship is known. During this time he appears to have been the only working goldsmith in the Burgh and it is surprising not more work by him is known considering the wealth of the area. Murray, whilst an obvious choice to repair the glass due to his geographical proximity to the family, was the obvious choice on a more important level, as he too was a Jacobite. Indeed, giving this work to a goldsmith and not knowing his leanings could have resulted in the owner’s imprisonment for treason. Murray is among a small handful of true Jacobite craftsmen not only working for Jacobite sympathisers but taking to the cause himself. Prince Charles’ rally in Stirling must have inspired Murray as he signed and served in Lord George Murray’s Brigade. Murray’s career as a solider was short lived and less successful than that as a goldsmith and he was taken prisoner as a Jacobite in November 1745, possibly under the Surrender Act invoked by Marshal George Wade which offered clemency to those who surrendered and became loyal to the Government. Whether or not they in fact surrendered under this Act is unknown, but Murray would be imprisoned from November 1745 until November 1746, in Airdrie, Perth, Edinburgh Castle and Carlisle, where on 14th November 1746 Patrick Murray was executed for his part in the rebellion. While other goldsmiths (perhaps most notably Ebenezer Oliphant) are considered Jacobites, it is only Patrick Murray whose name and work paid the greatest price for his convictions. The engraving to the lobes of the foot is interesting. It is a regularly recorded Jacobite toast and undoubtedly the toast which the glass gave. It is also very similar in wording to the Jacobite national anthem immortalised on the fabled ‘Amen Glasses’. While this glass is simpler in style to the engraved Jacobite glasses with roses, buds, oak leaves, portraits etc. and much plainer than the Amen glasses, the connection between the two is important and without doubt. Showing such an obvious toast to the Stuart King without symbolism and hidden intent shows the confidence its owners felt. The addition of silver to a broken glass again promotes the importance this revered glass had so early in its life. And perhaps most important the fact that all these aspects can be dated to before November 1745 when Patrick Murray was first imprisoned. These aspects combine to create a glass while plainer, simpler and indeed damaged, it is arguably more important than any engraved example, and on a par with even the most important Amen glasses. £8,000‑12,000

411 A ‘DOWN WITH THE RUMP’ JACOBITE WINE GLASS

18TH CENTURY the trumpet bowl with diamond point engraving under the rim ‘God Bliss Prince Charles and Down With the Rump’ raised on a swollen stem and spreading domed foot, the foot engraved PC Height: 16.2cm, diameter of rim 6.7cm, diameter of foot 7.5cm £600‑800

412 A RARE BOSCOBLE OAK ENGRAVED JACOBITE WINE GLASS

18TH CENTURY the ogee bowl with finely engraved scene of King Charles in the boughs of an oak tree with three crowns suspended from the branches, raised on a multi enamel twist stem and on a slightly domed circular foot Height :15.6cm, diameter of rim: 5.1cm, diameter of foot: 7.1cm Note: The use of the oak tree in Jacobite symbolism is not rare and is used in various forms. Whether the oak leaf (a symbol of the Stuart Clan), the acorn (showing mighty things start from small beginnings) or even the stricken oak with its green shoots emanating (showing that things can be re‑born from considered lost causes). However, the symbolism of the Boscobel Oak tree goes far deeper within Stuart history and legends. The story of the Boscoble Oak goes back to the Stuart monarch King Charles II who, during the Commonwealth uprising and after the battle of Worchester in 1651, had to flee for his life. With Cromwellian forces in pursuit, he and Colonel William Careless tried to make their escape only to have to hide in the boughs of an ancient oak tree. Safe in this hiding place, they made their escape afterwards. The story became so important to Royalists and Stuarts alike that the tree became a revered place and the story a legend. This culminated in the original Boscobel Oak being cut down and turned into souvenirs after the Restoration of the monarchy and beyond, as far as Victorian times. It is said that the oak tree which now stands in its place grew from an acorn of the original. The iconography of this glass not only shows the tree, a symbol of the Stuart monarch but, importantly, the three crowns to which he laid claim: England, Scotland and Ireland. The potent symbolism demonstrates the original owners’ strong allegiance to the Jacobite cause and the rightful monarchy. These Boscobel Oak glasses are an extremely rare type of Jacobite glass and among the finest quality of their type to survive. On comparison with the few others recorded, the current example appears to be by the most accomplished engraver. £4,000‑6,000

426 A FRAMED SECTION OF PRINTED FABRIC

18TH CENTURY the torn section of fabric printed with foliate sprigs on a natural ground, framed on a red background with handwritten label reading THE FRAGMENT FROM A DRESS GIVEN TO BONNIE PRINCE CHARLIE FOR HIS DISGUISE AS BETTIE BURKE, MANY YEARS LATER HE GAVE IT TO LADY MARY STEWART, WIFE OF LORD FORTROSE Fabric 16.5cm x 16cm (approx), frame 30cm x 37cm Note: Charles Edward was fleeing for the safety of the continent after the defeat at Culloden. His escape from the mainland via the Isle of Skye has been immortalised in song, poem and art since the 18th century, however the period where, with Flora MacDonald’s help, Charles dressed as her maid Betty Burke to escape detection, is often overlooked for the more romantic idea of the gallant Charles retreating. Relics and propaganda of Flora MacDonald are scarce, despite the fact that she is considered such a famous supporter of the Jacobite cause to the modern mind. Some confusion has surrounded the imagery of Flora/Betty Burke in the past and a how famous print of Flora was, for a long time, considered to be of Prince Charles as Burke. A small handful of engraved glasses showing Charles dressed as Betty Burke survive, giving an insight into the importance the contemporary Jacobites held for this event, which has almost been forgotten. Flora MacDonald was born in 1722 to a tenant farmer on the island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Her father died when she was a child, and her mother was abducted and then married by Hugh MacDonald of Skye, leaving Flora to be brought up by the chief

of her clan, the MacDonald’s of Clanranald. She was later educated in Edinburgh. After his defeat at Culloden in 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie fled to the island of Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides, where the 24‑year old Flora was visiting her brother. Charles persuaded Flora to help him escape the island undetected, and she was granted, via her step‑father, the commander of the local militia, a pass by boat to reach the mainland for herself, two servants and a crew of six. The Young Pretender was disguised in a dress as Irish spinning maid, Betty Burke, until he reached Skye where Flora was able to find him help; and thus she became the quintessential heroine of the Jacobite cause. However upon arriving in Skye, people became suspicious, and although Bonnie Prince Charlie was able to escape, Flora was arrested and sent to the Tower of London. She was allowed to live outwith the confines of the tower for a time under the watch of a gaoler, until her release in 1747. She later married, and moved with her new husband to North Carolina for a period, before her husband was captured whilst fighting for the Hanoverian forces during the War of Independence. Upon his release they returned to Scotland via a short stay in Nova Scotia. The voyage home was anything but quiet, and after their ship was attacked by privateers, she was injured after refusing to take shelter below deck. Flora and her husband took up residence on the Isle of Skye and she remained there until her death in 1790. During her time in Skye she met Samuel Johnson, the English essayist who was travelling in Scotland for a period, who recorded that ‘’her name will be mentioned in history, and if courage and fidelity be virtues, mentioned with honour.” £1,000‑3,000

427Y A PORTRAIT MINIATURE OF FLORA MACDONALD

AFTER I. MARKLUIN oil on ivory with figure of Flora MacDonald with green dress and tartan shawl, holding a portrait miniature of Prince Charles Edward Stuart from a concealed case, in a gilt brass frame with pierced floral border, the reverse with blue material backing with white Jacobite rose decoration Height: 11cm Note: The painting from which this portrait miniature was taken was by I. Markluin; however, it is unknown where it currently resides. The National Portrait Gallery has three mezzotint prints (from the same plate) that were taken after the original oil and were published in 1747. Portraits of Flora MacDonald are rare, but there are a few well‑known portraits of her, all in public collections. The National Portrait Gallery has one by Richard Wilson, painted in 1747; The Ashmolean in Oxford has one by Allan Ramsay from 1749; and there is one by Richard Wilson, also from 1747, in the collection of National Galleries Scotland. She is often depicted with white roses, symbolising her support for the Jacobite cause. £400‑600

428 A FINE JACOBITE REVIVAL CARVED WOOD FRAME

MID 19TH CENTURY the engraving showing the return of Bonnie Prince Charlie to Edinburgh after the Battle of Prestonpans, engraved by Francis Bacon after the painting by Thomas Duncan, signed in the margin, the heavily carved frame with a cresting of a plumed crown above a central figure of Charles Edward on horseback, draped with colours, canon, shields and including the dress targe presented to Prince Charles Edward Stuart by James, 3rd Duke of Perth, the corners with further clusters of arms and armour, the engraving flanked by bold Highland figures holding flags and standing on scrolls with carved crests in shields for the MacPhersons to the left and MacDonald to the right, the lower section with carved central Royal Standard flanked by oval portrait of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, further trophies of arms and various Scottish musical instruments Dimensions: 112 x 128cm (overall) Provenance: Formerly at Glentruim, with the MacPherson family by descent Note: Although the exact provenance and history of this commission is unknown, its long connection with the MacPherson family and the obvious iconography tells an interesting and important story. The frame dates firmly to the Jacobite/Highland revival period when the turn in Scots’ attitudes to being Scots meant that all parts of a family’s history were re‑evaluated and relics were not only brought out to display but new ‘heritage’ was created. It would appear that this frame falls into both camps. While it is firmly a revival piece of the highest quality, its purpose was not confined to showing off the wealth and artistic style of its owner and their interest in the Jacobite revival. With the very obvious heraldic motifs and armorials, it also demonstrates the family’s connections with the past and the uprising of 1745. Its choice not to commemorate the ‘45 but in particular one of the key victories at Prestonpans indicates the high regard in which their ancestors were being placed, even when the ultimate result of their involvement would have been as ill‑fated as the uprising itself. The fine carving depicts trophies of war and displays of Highland regalia and figures of the time, many being seen in prints, glassware and other works of art and which would have been very recognisable to not only a 19th century revivalist but an 18th century Jacobite. This is no better demonstrated than in the portraits of Charles Edward Stuart within the decoration and his iconic silver mount targe which is unquestionably located in the lower section. £5,000‑7,000

429Y JACOBITE INTEREST – AN UNUSUAL EARLY/MID 18TH CENTURY DOUBLE SNUFF BOX

UNMARKED, CIRCA 1720/1730 of oval outline, the plain straight sided silver body with reeded rims, the hinged ivory cover with traces of blue staining and inlaid lattice and pins, the centre set with an almost flush hinged silver cover with finely engraved armorial with rococo scroll mantling, when open reveals a mirror to interior and blue stained ivory inner, the inside of the main cover with three displayed open rose heads on a greenish blue background, the base of similar colour with foliate scroll to outside Width: 9cm Heraldry: Belsches of Innermay (or Invermay) in the County of Perthshire (the arms and crest as found on the lid) and the crest of the family of Robertson of Lude in the County of Perthshire (as found on the side of the box). They may be blazoned as follows: Arms and Crest of Belsches of Innermay Arms: Or three pallets gules a chief vair a crescent for difference Crest: A trunk of oak eradicated sprouting leaves proper Motto: Revirescit [It flourishes again]

Note: The Belsches originally held lands at Tofts in Berwickshire, but some of the family moved to Perthshire in 1717. The most likely original owner of this snuff box is Thomas Belsches of Greenyards (baptised on 1st October 1702). He served as Depute Sheriff Clerk for Edinburgh and was admitted a Burgess of the city by right of his father, and for his good services to the city, on the 25th July 1739. He was the second son (hence the use of the cadency mark of a crescent upon the arms) of Alexander Belsches of Innermay (the 1st of Innermay) and Emelia Murray, the daughter of Sir Thomas Murray of Glendoik. Thomas firstly married Margaret Hepburn of Baads, the daughter of Robert Hepburn of Baads on the 8th November 1741, and later, his cousin, Helen Belsches of Tofts, the daughter of John Belsches of Tofts. The fact the eradicated oak tree is used as the crest of the Belsches is interesting and may suggest early Jacobite leanings and support. Such an oak tree was a badge employed by the Royal House of Stuart and there are certainly strong connotations with the Jacobite cause. This symbol is regularly depicted in medallions, glass and other forms of Jacobite art, almost exclusively in connection with the motto, as seen with this example. Although ascertaining the Belsches Jacobite support has proved almost impossible, the family through marriage are later very closely connected with Alexander Forbes, 4th Lord Pitsligo (1678 – 1762). He was a staunch Jacobite who not only fought in the 1715 uprising, but also in the 1745 uprising. His support for the ill‑fated ‘15 saw him flee to the safety of the continent and the Jacobite court, but his stay would not last long: by 1720 he was travelling back to Scotland. This support of his countrymen would be seen some 25 years later with Prince Charles Edward Stuart’s return to Scotland, when Forbes raised a regiment of over 100 men and fought closely with the Prince until their eventual defeat at Culloden. After the defeat of Culloden, Forbes went into hiding on and around the estates of Pitsligo. However, the house and farms were not safe so he created a hidden lair in a cave underneath a bridge, where he lived for many years disguised as a beggar. Throughout this time he was a wanted man and local legend tells of him – in full disguise – helping Hanoverian troops look for himself and even give away the location of his hiding place, feigning assistance. This daring attitude and continued disrespect for the Hanoverian rule in the staunchly Jacobite North East created a man of legend, whose daring acts live up to the stories told. £1,000‑2,000

DEFINITIONS In these Conditions of Sale (Buyers): “Auctioneer” means Lyon & Turnbull Ltd (Registered in Scotland No: 191166 | Registered address: 33 Broughton Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3RR) or its authorised auctioneer, as appropriate; “Hammer price” means the level of bidding reached (at or above any reserve) when the Auctioneer brings down the hammer; “Lot” means each Item offered for sale by Lyon & Turnbull; “Purchase Price” is the Hammer Price and applicable Buyer’s Premium; “Reserve” means the lowest price below which an item cannot be sold; “Total amount due” means the hammer price in respect of the lot sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax or other taxes chargeable and any additional charges payable by a defaulting Buyer under these Conditions; “You”, “Your” means the Buyer “Us”, “Our”, “We” etc. refers to Lyon & Turnbull Ltd The singular includes the plural and vice versa as appropriate. 2. AGENCY Lyon & Turnbull acts as agent solely for and in the interests of the Seller. We do not act for Buyers in this role and does not give advice to Buyers. When Lyon & Turnbull make a statement about a lot it is doing so on behalf of the Seller of the lot. The Auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by Sellers or Buyers. 3. BIDDING PROCEDURES AND THE BUYER (a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding and to satisfy any security and credit references or arrangements before entering the auction room to view or bid; (b) High Value Lots and High Cumulative Value of Lots: If you wish to bid on any High Value Lot (a lot with a lower estimate of £30,000 or above) or if you are bidding on several lots with a total lower estimate value of £30,000 or above, you are invited to complete the High Value Lot pre-registration. After you have successfully registered as a bidder with Lyon and Turnbull, you should complete the High Value Lot pre-registration before the date of sale by contacting the Office Manager or on the date of sale at the registration area. Unless otherwise agreed by us, you will be permitted to bid for High Value Lots only if Lyon and Turnbull has confirmed your payment of deposit and your completion of the High Value Lot preregistration before the sale. The Deposit required will be 10% of the lower estimate. Upon pre-registration, you should pay the deposit or such other sum as determined by Lyon and Turnbull dependant on circumstances, by way of bank transfer or credit card(s) acceptable to Lyon and Turnbull. Please note that Lyon and Turnbull does not accept payment from third parties and this also applies to agents. If you are not successful in any bid and do not owe Lyon and Turnbull any debt, the deposit will be refunded to you by way of wire transfer or such other methods as

determined by Lyon and Turnbull. Please make sure that you provide your bank details in the pre-registration form. The exchange rate provided to us by the bank on the date of exchange is final. We will arrange to refund the deposit to you within seven days after the date of sale, however we do not guarantee when you will receive the payment due to the variance in time for banks to process fund transfers. Upon successful pre-registration, you will be given a numbered High Value Lot paddle for identification purposes. The auctioneer will usually only accept bids made with the High Value Lot paddle or by its High Value Lot registered bidder. This applies to saleroom, telephone and absentee bids. Lyon and Turnbull has the right to change the High Value Lot pre-registration procedures and requirements from time to time without notice. (c) The maker of the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer conducting the sale shall be the Buyer and any dispute shall be settled at the Auctioneer’s absolute discretion. (d) Once made, no bid may be withdrawn. (e) Our right to bid on behalf of Sellers is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve. (f) The right to refuse any bid is also reserved. (g) Commission Bids: While 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 shall, if so instructed, clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor our employees nor agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so. 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. (h) Telephone Bids: If a prospective Buyer makes arrangements with us prior to the commencement of the sale we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate in bidding by telephone. We do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions in connections. (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 Bidding increments shall be at the Auctioneer’s sole discretion. 5. THE PURCHASE PRICE For each lot purchased a Buyer’s Premium of 25% of the hammer price of each lot up to and including £100,000, plus 20% from £100,001 thereafter. VAT at the appropriate rate is charged on the Buyer’s Premium. No VAT is payable on the hammer price or premium for printed books or unframed maps bought at auction. Live online bidding is subject to an additional 3% premium (charged by the live bidding service provider Invaluable). This additional premium is subject to VAT at the appropriate rate as above. 6. VALUE ADDED TAX 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. (3) Lots affixed with [Ω]: Standard rate of Value Added Tax on the hammer price and premium is payable. This applies to items that have been imported from outwith the European Union and do not fall within the reduced rate category outlined above. 7. DROIT de SUITE 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. 8. PAYMENT (1) Within 7 days of a lot being sold you will: (a) Pay to us the total amount due in cash or by such other method as is agreed by us. We accept cash, bank transfer (details on request), debit cards and Visa or MasterCard credit cards. (b) Please note there is a surcharge of 2% when using credit cards. (c) Please note that we do not accept cash payments over £5,000. (2) Any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any sums owing by you to us howsoever incurred and without agreement by you or your agent, whether express or implied. 9. TITLE AND COLLECTION OF PURCHASES (1) The ownership of any lots purchased shall not pass to you until you have made payment in full to us of the total amount due. (2) You shall at your own risk and expense take away any lots that you have purchased and paid for not later than 7 working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment whichever is later. We can provide you with a list of shippers. However, we will not be responsible for the acts or omissions of carriers or packers whether or not recommended by us. (3) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been paid for. (4) It is the Buyer’s responsibility to ascertain collection procedures, particularly if the sale is not being held at our main sale room and the potential storage charges


for lots not collected by the appropriate time. (5) Export of goods: Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing goods of that character, e.g. items that may contain prohibited materials such as ivory or rhino horn. 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. (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. (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 safety regulations (items manufactured prior to 1950 are exempt from any regulations). 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 (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. 13. CITES Please be aware that all lots marked with the symbol Y may be subject to CITES regulations when exporting these items outside the EU. These regulations may be found at http://www.defra.gov.uk/ahvla-en/imports-exports/cites Lyon & Turnbull accepts no liability for any lots which may be subject to CITES but have not be identified as such. 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. Accordingly, neither the Auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to, during or after a sale. 16. GENERAL (a) We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person.

(d) Should any provision of these Conditions of Sale be held unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE Lyon & Turnbull guarantees that the authorship, period, or origin (collectively, “Authorship”) of each lot in this catalogue is as stated in the BOLD or CAPITALISED type heading in the catalogue description of the lot, as amended by oral or written salesroom notes or announcements. Lyon & Turnbull makes no warranties whatsoever, whether express or implied, with respect to any material in the catalogue other than that appearing in the Bold or Capitalised heading and subject to the exclusions below. In the event Lyon &Turnbull in its reasonable opinion deems that the conditions of the authenticity guarantee have been satisfied, it shall refund to the original purchaser of the lot the hammer price and applicable Buyer’s Premium paid for the lot by the original purchaser. This Guarantee does not apply if: (i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the opinion(s) of generally accepted scholar(s) and expert(s) at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or (ii) the only method of establishing that the Authorship was not as described in the Bold or Capitalised heading at the date of the sale would have been by means or processes not then generally available or accepted; unreasonably expensive or impractical to use; or likely (in Lyon &Turnbull’s reasonable opinion) to have caused damage to the lot or likely to have caused loss of value to the lot; or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description in the Bold or Capitalised type heading. This Guarantee is provided for a period of one year from the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the original purchaser of the lot at the auction and may not be transferred to any third party. To be able to claim under this Authenticity Guarantee, the original purchaser of the lot must: (i) notify Lyon & Turnbull in writing within one month of receiving any information that causes the original purchaser of record to dispute the accuracy of the Bold or Capitalised type heading, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons for such dispute; and (ii) return the Lot to Lyon & Turnbull’s registered office in the same condition as at the date of sale to the original purchaser of record and be able to transfer good title to the Lot, free from any third party claims arising after the date of such sale. Lyon & Turnbull has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Lyon & Turnbull may require the original purchaser of the lot to obtain, at the original purchaser of lot’s cost, the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field. The reports must be mutually acceptable to Lyon & Turnbull and the original purchaser of the lot. Lyon & Turnbull shall not be bound by any reports produced by the original purchaser of the lot, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. It is specifically understood and agreed that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid (the successful hammer price, plus the buyer’s premium) is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available as a matter of law. Lyon & Turnbull and the Seller shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages incurred or claimed, including without limitation, loss of profits or interest. 18.

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. All lots will be invoiced to the name and address given on your registration form, which is non-transferable.
