Written and oral descriptions are our opinions and should in no way be construed as a guarantee of any kind as to age, condition, materials or any other feature of any lot being sold. If you require absolute certainty in all areas of authenticity, and the results of your evaluation leave uncertainty in your mind, we recommend you not bid on the lot in question.

9. CONDITION REPORTS: Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc., and its employees will provide, upon request, condition reports and additional photographs for items contained within the current auction catalog. This service is provided as a courtesy only and requesting a condition report in no way changes article #1 of Conditions of Sale. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to inspect each lot yourself or have an agent do so on your behalf. Prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc., or its employees is merely a subjective qualified opinion, notwithstanding written reports or any discussion concerning condition in this catalog. Condition reports are provided by request on a "first come, first served" basis, making it imperative that requests are submitted early. Requests submitted close to auction date may not be completed.
NOTICE TO BIDDER: Estimated Weights and Measurements: All weights in our catalogue descriptions have been estimated through volumetric proportions and are to be considered approximations and are not to be relied on to be exact. The term "all-in" relating to weight means the weight includes all the components of the item.
Jewelry: Unless stated otherwise, all diamonds and other precious stones have been measured and graded in their settings. Some jewelry and/or stones are accompanied by certificates prepared by gemological laboratories. These certificates are provided as a convenience to our clients and are not warranted by Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc. Metal weights given for jewelry includes stones unless stated otherwise. Buyers should be reminded that many colored gemstones have historically been treated to enhance their appearance.
Clocks and Watches: No guarantee is given as to the working order of clocks or watches. Most of these items have been repaired over the course of time and may now have parts not original to them. Unless stated otherwise, weight measurements include the works.
10. TELEPHONE & ABSENTEE BIDDING: As a service, Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc. provides several absentee bidding formats to those who cannot or choose not to attend the auction in person.

13. EXPORT LICENSES AND PERMITS: Certain property sold at auction may be made of or contain elements of endangered and other protected species of wildlife. Such material includes, among other things, tortoiseshell, ivory, crocodile skin, whale bone, certain species of coral and other animal bone. These materials may be subject to laws governing export from the United States or import into a foreign country (i.e.: endangered species). Several countries prohibit the importation of property containing these materials altogether and other countries require a permit (e.g., a CITES permit) from their respective regulatory agency. For example, the United States generally prohibits the importation of articles less than 100 years of age that contain material from any species listed as endangered or threatened. It is the buyer's responsibility to obtain any and all export or import licenses, permits or documentation required by any local authority for export from the United States or import into any other country for any object requiring same. The denial or delay in obtaining any license or permit from any agency shall not justify the cancellation or rescission of any sale or any delay in making payment for the total purchase price of any lot in accordance with these Conditions of Sale.
14. FIREARMS: All post-1898 firearms must be registered in compliance with Federal and South Carolina State Laws. Buyers of post-1898 firearms must complete State and Federal registration forms at Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc., unless otherwise specified; processing of such forms may require a waiting period.

15. While Charlton Hall Galleries, Inc., their employees and representatives, make every effort to accurately describe all lots offered for sale, it is incumbent upon the bidder to satisfy themselves in all areas of authenticity, originality, condition and imperfections. Bidders should also acknowledge that condition reports are often subjective and any item offered at auction may be subject to normal wear consistent with age that may not be specified in a condition report. If a bidder is uncertain about any of these issues, we would recommend that they not bid on lots in question. We would further urge that all potential bidders become familiar with "Commonly Used Terms and Abbreviations" printed in each catalog or available upon request.

Regency bronze and burl-yew inkstand, Alexis Decaix

Estimate: $5,000 - $8,000

Description: Regency bronze and burl-yew inkstand, Alexis Decaix circa 1805, bronzes attributed to Alexis Decaix (British, active 1778-1811), the inkstand possibly supplied by Dupasquier; hinged top and bull''s-head cornucopia, flanked by pair kneeling Egyptian priestesses holding incense burners with pierced removable tops; above highly-figured yew case with long drawer and lion''s-mask pull; on paw feet headed by scrolls; H11" W17 1/2" D9" Provenance: Millicent Rogers Estate of Arturo Peralta Ramos II Other Notes: The same inkstand model, but with an ''ormoulu'' garniture was acquired in 1810 by George, Prince of Wales, later George IV. It was illustrated in the ''Jutsham'' pictorial ledger for the contents of Carlton House, and noted as being purchased from ''Dupasquier'' (H. Clifford Smith, Buckingham Palace, London, 1931, p.203 and pl.236). A related bronze figural inkstand was acquired by the Prince and listed by the court goldsmith Thomas Garrard in his ledger of 21 June 1803, as ''an inkstand of yew Tree with female figure in bronze holding cornucopia'' (M. Levy, ''Taking up the Pen'', Country Life, 23 April 1992, pp.60-62). The French patterned monopodia is also featured on clocks, such as that by the Parisian ébeniste Martin-Eloy Lignereux (see also Lot 410 in this sale). However, this inkstand''s bronzes are likely to have been executed by Alexis Decaix ''bronze and ormolie [sic.] manufacturer'' of Rupert Street, who invoiced the Prince of Wales for ''bronze manufacturers'' in April 1803. Other inkstands of this pattern, but with ormolu rhyton and undecorated altars, were sold anonymously, Christie''s South Kensington, 25 October 1989, Lot 249; and The Humphrey Whitbread Collection, Christie''s-London, 5 April 2001, Lot 384. Illustrated in 1940 photograph at Claremont Manor, James River, Virginia

Empire amaranth-inlaid birch armchairs, Jacob Freres (4pcs)

Description: Empire amaranth-inlaid birch armchairs, Jacob Freres circa 1796-1803, curved back above palmette-inlaid shaped splat, leading to arms on dolphin supports and overupholstered seat, on carved joined hairy animal legs and hoof feet; stamped: JACOB FRERES RUE MESLEE; BH34" SH19" W21" D24" (4pcs) Provenance: Millicent Rogers Estate of Arturo Peralta Ramos II Other Notes: Jacob Freres was the stamp used by brothers Georges II (1768-1803) and Francois-Honore Jacob (1770-1841) from 1796-1803. They were sons of Georges Jacob (1739-1814), a furniture maker who worked for aristocracy and royalty during the reign of Louis XVI. The Jacob Freres firm''s most famous client was Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte. She would have most likely seen the work of their father during the revolution in a progressive aristocrat''s house. She used them to decorate various Imperial residences, such as the Tuileries palace, and remained a loyal customer, using them almost exclusively, until her death. When Georges II (the elder brother) died in 1803, Georges came out of retirement to help the remaining son, Francois-Honore (who changed his named to Jacob Desmalter) from a new partnership called Jacob Desmalter Et Cie. (stamped Jacob D. R. Meslee, on two lines), which continued to be a influential supplier for the Imperial period and is credited with helping to define the Empire style as it is known today.

Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones (attributed to) (2pcs)

Estimate: $5,000 - $9,000

Description: Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones (attributed to) (British, 1833-1898) HAIR STUDIES (probably for The Golden Stairs, 1880) graphite on paper, framed, unsigned, one inscribed on verso: 5805 and the other: 5809 sight H9 1/2" W6 1/2" (2pcs) Provenance: Millicent Rogers Estate of Arturo Peralta Ramos II Literature: Wildman, Stephen; and Christian, John. EDWARD BURNE-JONES: VICTORIAN ARTIST DREAMER. New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1998. Other Notes: The Golden Stairs is one of the best-known paintings by the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, and is one of many paintings he sketched out in 1872 following a trip to Italy. He began work on the canvas in 1876 and finished it in great haste in April 1880, just days before the Grosvenor Gallery exhibition was to open. The figures of the musicians were drawn from professional models, but the heads are young women of Burne-Jones''s circle. Some identifications have been made as follows: his daughter Margaret is fourth from top, holding a trumpet. Edith Gellibrand, known by the stage name Edith Chester, is seventh from top, seen stooping. May Morris, daughter of William Morris, is ninth from top, holding a violin. Frances Graham, later known as Lady Horner, daughter of William Graham, is bottom left, holding cymbals. Standing behind her on the stairs is Mary Gladstone, daughter of William Gladstone. Others include Laura Tennant, later known as Laura Lyttelton, and Mary Stuart-Wortley, later Lady Lovelace. The painting was purchased by Cyril Flower (1843-1907), later Lord Battersea, a politician and art patron, and was bequeathed by him to the Tate Gallery-London, where it remains today.

Condition Report: top hinge, toning, age discoloration and one with foxing. Appears to be in original condition. *** Notice to bidders: The absence of a condition report does not imply that an object is free of defects or restoration.
