Public viewing arrangements will be advised in advance of the Date of Sale and private viewing can be arranged at the TimeLine premises by appointment.

14. Lot Descriptions: all Lots are offered 'as seen' and 'as is' and are available for inspection. The Buyer is obligated to make all and any enquiries he wishes as to the accuracy and authenticity of any sale description and the principle of caveat emptor applies except where expressly excluded by operation of law.

For coins that have been authenticated, graded and encapsulated ('slabbed') by an independent grading company, no guarantee of any kind is offered by TimeLine. Buyers should note that removal or attempted removal from any slab will immediately void any independent guarantee that might have been offered by that grading company.

15. Condition Reports: All Lots are available for inspection. TimeLine will provide a report on the physical condition of any Lot on request. Bidders/Buyers should note that reports are provided as a service to interested clients. Descriptions therein are not warranties and all Lots are offered 'as seen' and 'as is'.

16. Estimates: estimates are for general guidance only and Lots may sell outside their range. Buyers must make their own assessment as to the value of any Lot and conduct their bidding accordingly.

17. Reserves: Lots may be subject to a Reserve set by the Seller, at a level not exceeding the low estimate, below which Reserve bids cannot be accepted; TimeLine reserves the right to bid on behalf of a Seller, up to the amount of any reserve.

18. Buyer's Premium: the general Buyer's Premium is 24% (VAT inclusive) for Bidders attending the Auction or for telephone Bidders and no additional charge is made for Bidders using our in-house TimeLine internet bidding service.

19. Registration and Bidding: all prospective bidders must register their personal details with TimeLine before bidding and a Bidder Number will be allocated for their exclusive use; prospective Bidders may be asked to provide proof of identity and address. TimeLine reserves its right to refuse any Bidder or any Bid at its discretion. The Bidder Number must be shown by Bidders to the Auctioneer when placing a bid and by the successful Bidder when the Lot is knocked down. The auctioneer shall conduct the Auction at his sole discretion for all matters, accept Bids from any source and may exercise bids on behalf of Absentee Bidders or on behalf of Sellers up to any Reserve.

21. Commission Bidding: while Bidders are advised to attend the Auction and to bid in person, TimeLine will accept written instructions in advance of a live Auction from a Registered Bidder to personally execute bids on behalf of the Bidder up to a stated maximum. Unlimited bids or bids to 'buy' will not be accepted. In the event of identical bids being received from more than one Bidder, the earliest received will have priority. TimeLine offers this as a free service for live Auctions but no liability is accepted for any errors in bidding or in the event that a bid is not placed. A deposit may be required.

22. Internet Bidding: live, real-time bidding is available to Bidders through the TimeLine website for all live Auctions. Bidders intending to use any other internet bidding service must Register in advance with that service and the provider's normal charges at 3.6% (VAT inclusive) will be payable in addition to the Buyer's Premium. It is entirely the responsibility of the Bidder using any bidding service to ensure that Bids are made accurately; Bids cannot be retracted once made and are binding on the Bidder in all circumstances. TimeLine are not responsible for any technical failure or otherwise which results in bids not being received.

23. Telephone Bidding: facilities for telephone bidding are available at live Auctions at the discretion of TimeLine for Bidders on Lots with a low estimate in excess of £400 and must be booked and confirmed in advance. It is a condition for acceptance by TimeLine of any telephone bidding request that the Bidder undertakes to execute a minimum Bid at the low estimate sum. TimeLine offers telephone bidding as a free service but no liability is accepted for any errors or in the event that a connection cannot be made or is interrupted before the Lot is knocked down.

24. Agents: all Bidders making Bids through any means shall be deemed to be acting as principal in their bidding and shall be directly and fully liable for all Bid amounts, Buyer's Premium and any other charges or costs. If any prospective Bidder wishes to appoint a person to bid on their behalf, then this must be agreed and authorised in writing by TimeLine in advance of the Auction. A deposit may be required.

25. Value Added Tax: VAT is charged and invoiced on an inclusive basis, under the Auctioneer's Margin Scheme on all Buyers' Premiums and other charges. Where marked with a 'dagger' (†) symbol VAT will be payable on the Hammer Price in addition.

26. Payment: the Purchase Price becomes due and payable when the auctioneer knocks the Lot down.
(a) The full Purchase Price must be paid in Pounds Sterling and can be made by cash up to the value of £7,000, cheque from a UK bank (subject to clearance), bank transfer (for transfers from outside the UK, subject to payment of a £10 transaction fee), bank debit card or credit card (subject to a transaction fee of 3% of the invoice total amount).

27.

Risk for the Lot passes to the Buyer at the time the Lot is knocked down to the Bidder. TimeLine does not hold property insured after the Lot has been knocked down.

28. Collection of Lots and Storage: Once the Buyer has paid the Purchase Price in full, TimeLine will release the Lot to the Buyer for collection. The Buyer must collect, or arrange the collection of, all purchases from the location advised by TimeLine by 4.30pm on the seventh working day following the Date of Sale. Buyers may use the services of Mail Boxes Etc (contact details are provided on TimeLine documentation) or a service of their choice for collection, packing and shipping services. Lots not collected by the seventh working day following the Date of Sale will be moved to storage at a transfer cost of £20 plus VAT per lot and storage charges will thereafter be applied at the rate of £1.90 plus VAT per lot per day until collected; no lots may be removed until any storage costs have been paid in full.

Anglo-Saxon Bird Hanging Bowl Mount

Estimate: £100 - £140

Description: 6th century AD. A bronze mount of a long-necked bird with elliptical body and short tail; hollow to the underside, filled with cuprous corrosion products where it was attached to the rim of a hanging bowl; the creature's back with an elliptical panel of yellow enamel infill surrounded by a thin green enamelled outer border extending to the tail; the neck D-shaped in section and arched to form a hook, with the eyes and beak indicated on the upper face. Cf. the triangular mounts on a bowl from Ipswich in West. S. A Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Finds From Suffolk, East Anglian Archaeology 84, Ipswich, 1998 fig.69 and discussion in Bruce-Mitford, R. and Raven, S.

The mount was used as one of a series of hooks by which the bowl was suspended.

It is likely that they formed part of tribute and dowry exchanges.

Typically, they comprise a matched pair of plates, one with a hook to the reverse at one edge and the other with a corresponding slot. Some clasps feature a third, triangular gusset plate above which strengthened the top of the slit and prevented the fabric from tearing. Examples of clasps with an integral gusset are very rare, but Hines illustrates this feature on a suite from grave 75 in the Barrington B cemetery (Cambridgeshire) - his fig.124(h"). [No Reserve]
