The provisions of section 45 reads as follows:
1. Auctions
1.1 In this section, "auction" includes a sale in execution of or pursuant to a court order, to the extent that the order contemplates that the sale is to be conducted by an auction.
1.2 When goods are put up for sale by auction in lots, each lot is, unless there is evidence to the contrary, regarded to be the subject of a separate transaction.
1.3 A sale by auction is complete when the auctioneer announces its completion by the fall of the hammer, or in any other customary manner, and until that announcement is made, a bid may be retracted.
1.4 Notice must be given in advance that a sale by auction is subject to -
(a) A reserved or upset price; or
(b) A right to bid by or on behalf of the owner, in which case the owner or auctioneer, or any one person on behalf of the owner or auctioneer, as the case may be, may bid at the auction.
1.5 Unless notice is given in advance that a sale by auction is subject to a right to bid by or on behalf of the owner or auctioneer:
(a) The owner or auctioneer must not bid or employ any person to bid at the sale;
(b) The auctioneer must not knowingly accept any bid from a person contemplated in paragraph B.1.5 (a); and
(c) The consumer may approach a court to declare the transaction fraudulent, if this subsection has been violated.
1.6 The Minister may prescribe requirements to be complied with by an auctioneer, or different categories of auctioneer, in respect of:
(a) The conduct of an auction;
(b) The records to be maintained with respect to property placed for auction; and
(c) The sale of any such property by auction.
2. The rules of the auction are those promulgated in terms of the
Regulations promulgated by the Minister of Trade and Industry dated 23 November 2010 under Government Gazette No. 33818 on 1 April 2011 and any subsequent amendment and/or variation to the rules and these terms.
3. In the event of there being a discrepancy between the rules and the terms herein, the rules shall be operative and overriding.
4. Every bid constitutes an offer, open for acceptance by the
Auctioneer and such acceptance shall be signified by the fall of the hammer, or by the acceptance of the offer by the Company in the event of a private sale.
5. Buyers are solely responsible to satisfy themselves prior to auction/ private treaty sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with the description or not.
5.1 Neither the Company, its servants, its employees, its agents and/or the Auctioneer shall be responsible whether directly or indirectly for any errors, omissions, acts of negligence, incorrect and/or inadequate descriptions or defects or lack of authenticity and/or inadequate descriptions or defects or lack of authenticity or lack of ownership or genuineness in any goods auctioned and sold. The Company shall not be held responsible for any incorrect, inaccurate or defective description of the goods listed for sale in the catalogue or in any condition report, publication, letter, or electronic transmission or to the attribution, origin, date, age, provenance, condition and description of the goods sold, and shall not be responsible for any loss, damage, consequential damages and/or patrimonial loss of any kind or nature whatsoever and howsoever arising thereout.
5.2 No warranty, whether express, implied or tacit is given by the Company, its servants, its agents, or its employees, or the Auctioneer or the Seller or the Buyer of any lot shall be binding or legally enforceable.
5.3 Any lot which proves to be a 'deliberate forgery' (which will only be the case if an expert appointed by the Company for such purposes confirms same in writing) may be returned by the Buyer (as his sole remedy hereunder or at law) to the Company within 21 days of the date of auction in the same condition in which it was at the time of the auction, accompanied by a statement of defects, the number of the lot, and the date of the auction at which it was purchased. If the Company is satisfied that the item is a 'deliberate forgery' and that the Buyer has and is able to transfer a good and marketable title to the lot, free from any third-party claims, the sale will be set aside and any amount paid in respect of the lot will be refunded, subject to the express condition that the Buyer will have no rights or claims against the Company if:
5.3.1 the description in the catalogue at the date of the sale was in accordance with the then generally accepted opinion of scholars and experts or fairly indicated that there was conflict of such opinion; or
5.3.2 the only method of establishing at the date of publication of the catalogue that the lot was a 'deliberate forgery' was by means of a scientific process not generally accepted for use until after publication of the catalogue, or by a process which was unreasonably expensive or impractical.
5.4 Buyer's claiming under this condition will be limited to any amount paid in respect of the lot and will not extend to any loss or damage of whatsoever nature suffered, or expense incurred by him/her.
5.5 The benefit of this condition will not be assignable and willrest solely and exclusively in the Buyer who, for the purpose of this condition, will be and only be the person to whom the original invoice is made out by the Company in respect of the lot sold.

7. The Company has the sole and absolute discretion without having to give any reasons therefore, to refuse any bid, withdraw or reoffer lots for auction (including after the fall of the hammer), cancel any sale if the Auctioneer and/or the Company believes that there may be an error or dispute of any nature whatsoever, and shall have the rights, as it deems fit, to divide any lot; to combine any two or more lots, or to put up any lot for auction again.
8. Any notice required to be given in connection with this agreement:
8.1 if given by the Company, shall be delivered by hand, or sent by registered post; or by telefax or by email, provided such address is given in which event such address shall constitute the domicilium citandi et executandi of the person to whom notice must be given.

8.1.1 on the date of delivery if delivered by hand or telefax or email;
8.1.2 on the fourth (4th) day from the date of posting, including the date of posting if posted by prepaid registered post from within the Republic of South Africa, which postage shall be deemed to have been sent on receipt of the post office of proof of posting.

9. The Seller submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the South African courts.
10. The Buyer and/or Seller, as the case may be, hereby pledges the goods either sold and/or bought as security to the Company for all amounts which are owing to it.
11. No variation, alteration, consensual termination, representation, condition, term or warranty, relaxation or waiver or release by the Company, or estoppel against the Company, or the suspension by the Company, in respect of these terms and conditions of business, or any part thereof, shall be of any force or effect unless reduced to writing and signed by the Company and the Buyer.
12. The Buyer shall be responsible for the payment of the Company's legal costs, calculated on the scale as between attorney and client incurred by the Company in enforcing any of its rights of its principal whether such rights are exercised by way of legal proceedings or not.
13. Notwithstanding the nature or amount of the claim by the Company, the Company and the Buyer hereby consent to the jurisdiction of the Magistrate's Court otherwise having jurisdiction; this consent is without prejudice to the right of the Company to institute proceedings and to obtain judgment or any order in the High Court of competent jurisdiction, the Company nevertheless still being entitled to claim on the High Court scale of costs and expenses, all as set out in this agreement.

14. Breach by the Buyer
14.1 Should the Buyer breach any of the terms and conditions thereof, alternatively not make payment in full or collect the items bought as provided herein, or should there be any other breach, the Company, agent for the Seller (alternatively the Company in the event of it being the Seller of its own goods) will, and at its absolute and sole discretion, and without prejudice to any other rights it may have in law, be entitled to exercise on or more or all of the following remedies:
14.1.1 to institute proceedings against the Buyer for payment and/or damages for breach of contract;
14.1.2 to cancel the sale of that or any other lots sold to the defaulting Buyer at the same time or at any other auction;
14.1.3 to resell the goods (lot) or cause it to be resold by public auction or private sale;
14.1.4 to remove, store and insure the goods at the sole expense of the defaulting Buyer and if such goods are stored either at the Company's premises or any other place as the Company may require such goods to be stored at, the Buyer shall be responsible for all charges associated therewith;
14.1.5 to charge interest on such monies as are due, owing and payable in an amount of two percent (2%) above the prime rate granted to a customer by the Company's bankers;
14.1.6 to retain that or any other lot sold to the same Buyer at the same time, or at any other auction and to allow the Buyer to take delivery of such goods after all amounts due, owing and payable have been paid by the Buyer to the Company in terms of this agreement, including interest, storage charges and any other charges;
14.1.7 to reject any bid made by or on behalf of the defaulting Buyer at any future auction/sale;
14.1.8 to exercise a right of retention over the goods sold and not to release such goods to the Buyer until full payment has been made to the Company in terms of this agreement.

14.1.9 to charge a rental charge of R10 (ten rand) plus VAT per day for each item stored by the Company from the date of auction until the time of collection.
14.2 In the event of the Company reselling the goods at a subsequent auction or by way of private treaty sale and should such goods be sold for a lesser amount than the amount sold, the Buyer shall be liable for any loss (if any) being the difference between the initial sale price and the resale price if lower than the initial price and the Company shall be entitled forthwith to proceed against the Buyer for a claim for damages.
15. Rescission of the sale
If before 21 days after the auction or within 48 hours of a private treaty sale, the Buyer makes a claim to rescind the sale under the definition of deliberate forgery or otherwise and the Company is of the opinion of the claim is justified, the Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to rescind the sale and refund the Buyer any amounts paid to the Company in respect of that sale and the Seller authorises the Company to do so.
16. Treatment and Condition of Gemstones
The Buyer acknowledges that gemstones and precious stones and/or semi-precious stones have been treated by a variety of techniques to enhance their colour, appearance and clarity. These or other techniques, such as dyeing, irradiation, coating and impregnation, may be used on other gemstones.
Although it is widely believed that heat treatments are permanent, Buyers should assume that any treatment may not be permanent and that over time special care of the stone may be required. Prospective Buyers are reminded that, unless the catalogue description specifically states that a stone is natural, the Company have assumed that some form of treatment may have been used and that such treatment may not be permanent. To the extent that the Company has laboratory reports containing specific information on the treatment of a stone, these reports are made available for review by potential Buyers. Available reports from internationally recognised gemmological laboratories will be noted in the description of the item. New forms of treatments and new scientific methods to discern them are constantly being developed. Consequently, there may be a lack of consensus among laboratories as to whether gemstones have been treated, the extent of the treatment or the permanence of the treatment.

References in the catalogue descriptions to certificates or reports issued by gemmological laboratories are included only for the information of Buyers, and the Company accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports.

Statements in the catalogue regarding the condition of lots in this sale usually appear in the description. However, the absence of any such reference does not imply that a lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear or imperfections. The Company will be pleased to offer condition reports on all lots of the sale to potential Buyers.
17. Wristwatches
All wristwatches are sold as viewed and cannot be returned on the grounds that repairs have been carried out or parts supplied by anyone other than the named makers.

Watches may not be taken apart whilst on view. Prospective Buyers or their agents wishing to do so should make an appointment with the Watch Department for a private view the week before the sale.
Although condition reports may be given on request, such reports are statements of opinion only and may not specify all mechanical replacements or imperfections in the movement, case and dial. All dimensions are approximate.

The Company offers no guarantees with regard to the working order of wristwatches, and will not be liable for any losses which may be incurred in this respect. As with all items included in the sale, it is the prospective Buyer's responsibility to conduct a full inspection of the lot prior to the sale. Water-resistant cases may have been opened and no warranty is offered with regard to the water resistance of any watches.

The Company does not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets and leather bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts. Straps made of material derived from endangered or otherwise protected species (i.e. alligator and crocodile) are not sold with the watches and are for display purposes only. The Company reserve the right to remove these straps prior to shipping. Furthermore, in reference to watch bands, the Company does not guarantee the material of manufacture.
18. Overseas Bidders
Overseas bidders are advised that courier companies such as RAM, Fedex and DHL do not insure jewellery being sent between South Africa and overseas countries. Insurance will therefore become the responsibility of the buyer.

A CHINESE JIAN WARE TEA BOWL, POSSIBLY SONG DYNASTY, 906-1279 the wide flar

Estimate: R6,000 - R9,000

Description: A CHINESE JIAN WARE TEA BOWL, POSSIBLY SONG DYNASTY, 906-1279 the wide flaring bowl with slight upturned lip, the exterior glazed in black, falling short above the low foot exposing the buff body, the amber glazed interior suffused with mottled splashes of milky lavender, crazing 15,8cm diameter A Jian ware bowl may also be referred to as 'The Black Peony' of Chinese ceramics. Jian ware was highly regarded for its craftsmanship and extraordinary mottled glaze variations. The production of Jian ware was a meticulous process which started with the selection of suitable clay to produce the wares - the first kilns were established in Fujian Province, as the quarries yielded iron rich clay that produced the reddish-brown and buff-yellow bodies required for Jian ware. Jian ware reached its pinnacle during the Song Dynasty, 960 – 1279. Not only were the pieces admired for their simple beauty and unusual glazes, but they became popular tea bowls. Tea parties were in vogue amongst the Song elite and often tea contests were held, where so-called 'whipped tea' was prepared. Water was poured onto tea powder and whisked to produce a white froth, Song Emperor Huizong wrote: “The black hued tea bowls are to be preferred” as the tea-froth was more notable against a dark glaze.
