Thursday 22nd March 10am-6pm,               Saturday 24th March 12 noon-6pm.

Viewing at the Auction Venue; Monday 26th March;
              Larger lots (marked “
þ” in the description); on view at auction venue from 3pm: Smaller lots; on view by 4.00pm. Viewing will end at about 6.50pm. Lots marked “V” are not taken to the auction venue (see information box below).

 

IMPORTANT; Viewing Arrangements for “Not-To-Auction” Lots this Sale
Our experiment with viewing arrangements in February worked fine, so we are repeating them this time.
This relates to all lots in this auction which have the “
Vsymbol in their description, signifying that they will not be taken to the auction venue. We are making arrangements so that these lots can be viewed at our shop premises on auction day, and that purchases can be collected that same evening. [Sorry, this has a specific symbol in our printed catalogue, which does not convert to a web page. If this is important to you, please see the "Word" versions of the catalogue (links at top of page).]
{a} In addition to the normal viewing arrangements noted above, any lots marked “
V” can be viewed at our smaller shop at 1A Inverleith Gardens, on Monday 26th March from 3pm to 6.45pm. Should there be pressure on available space, viewing will be at the discretion of our staff.
{b} After purchasing and paying for any “
V” lots at the auction venue, customers can take their receipted invoice to our shop and pick up these lots, from 8pm until ten minutes after the last customer has been cleared through accounts.
{c} Customers can still opt to collect their lots from us later in the week during shop opening hours.
{d} There is no parking directly outside 1A, so customers will have to park a little further along
Inverleith Gardens. While we can lend you a trolley, there will be no available staff to carry boxes.

              MEDALS

    141     Suffragette Medals; important pair of medals awarded to two sisters – Margaret Skirving Gibb
              and Ellison Scotland Gibb.                              

              Each medal comes in its original box, inscribed “PRESENTED TO/ELLISON GIBB/BY THE WOMEN’S
                   SOCIAL & POLITICAL UNION,/IN RECOGNITION OF A GALLANT ACTION/WHEREBY THROUGH
                   ENDURANCE/TO THE LAST EXTREMITY/OF HUNGER
AND HARDSHIP,/A GREAT PRINCIPLE OF
                   POLITICAL JUSTICE/WAS VINDICATED.
” (the second with identical wording but to “MARGARET
                   GIBB
”).

              Ellison Gibb’s has the top silver bar engraved “FOR VALOUR”, central silver bar engraved
             
OCTOBER 30TH 1912”, and the lower enamelled bar engraved on reverse “FED BY FORCE 4/3/12”, on
              a ring from which is hung the medallion engraved “
HUNGER STRIKE” on front and “ELLISON/
                   GIBB
” on reverse. The ribbon is in the vertical green, white and purple colours of the movement.
              The whole is in excellent condition without any serious blemish, and the ribbon and box being
              fresh.

              Margaret Gibb’s is almost identical but with a central enamelled bar (rather than silver). The
              central bar is engraved on reverse “
FED BY FORCE 19.7.14”, and the lower one “FED BY FORCE
                   26/2/13
”, and the medallion engraved on the reverse “MARGARET/GIBB”. Again in excellent
              condition.

              Also in the group is one silver portcullis badge as given to Suffragettes who were imprisoned in
              Holloway prison (silver portcullis with two small fine chains at top, with “government arrow” in
              purple, white and green fixed at centre, horizontal pin at centre rear). When this group came to us
              this badge was in Ellison’s box, but we cannot say whose it was. The “Holloway Brooch” was
              designed by Sylvia Pankhurst; the badge and the medals were made by Toyes.

              Every Suffragette medal is rare and important. While the list of potential recipients includes
              several pairs of sisters, this is the only pair to sisters we know of to have come on the market.



              Behind the medals lies the amazing story of two
Glasgow sisters, who combined being prize-
              winning chess players with Suffragette activism. (And they were not the first in their family to
              campaign for change; their three times great grandfather was William Skirving, one of the Scottish
              Political Martyrs transported for sedition to
Australia in 1794.)

              Margaret had already served two months in Holloway for striking a Police Constable with a dog
              whip, when on
17 July 1914 she entered the National Portrait Gallery in London and attacked
              Millais’ portrait of Thomas Carlyle with a meat cleaver. ‘The Fury with a Chopper’; ‘A Hatchet
              Fiend’ the newspapers of the day proclaimed, yet Margaret was right when she told the judge at
              her trial “This picture will have an added value and be of great historical interest, because it has
              been honoured by the attention of a militant”. Exhibitions at the NPG in 2014 and 2018 have
              included the story of the attack, for which she was sentenced to six months in Holloway Prison

              Her younger sister Ellison was active from 1908 to 1912. She threw stones and smashed windows
              in London and Dundee, she protested at Downing Street, shouted at the Prime Minister H.H.
              Asquith and in 1912 had a discussion with Winston Churchill (First Lord of the Admiralty at the
              time, but Home Secretary for much of the Campaign) on the Stranraer to Glasgow train that
              according to the press of the day ended with Churchill using words ‘more appropriate to a stair
              head battle than to a Cabinet Minister’ and shouting “Remove this woman. You’ll never get the
              vote !” The length of her prison sentences varied from three days to six months.

VIEWING ARRANGEMENTS

NORMAL BIDDING STEPS
We list here our normal bid steps for your information. This may be of help to bidders who are unable to
attend the sale, as any written bids received which do not fit our normal pattern would usually be taken
down to the next normal step. (We keep to these increments as much as possible, but do sometimes
change if circumstances make it desirable.)
Up to £20, bids are in £1 steps.                From £20 to £30, bids are in £2 steps.
From £30 to £50, bids are in £2 or £3 steps (i.e. £30, £32, £35, £38, £40, £42, £45, £48, £50).
From £50 to £100 in £5 steps.                           From £100 to £200, bids are in £10 steps.
Then £220, £240, £260, £280, £300, £320, £350, £380, £400, £420, £450, £480, £500, £550, £600, £650, £700, £750, £800, £850, £900, £950, £1,000, £1,100, £1,200, etc., and above this in 5% to 10% steps.

THE AUCTION VENUE is 650 metres West of our Shop, on Ferry Road. It has its own car park.
The bar (upstairs) is open
6-10pm and also serves a variety of food, teas and coffees. Please note that
we do not allow drinks at the viewing tables, but you are welcome to bring drinks down from the bar
once the auction has started.

 

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN BID;
            In Person. This is a public auction, and bids are made in the traditional manners.
            Bids by post. Please use the Bid Form supplied, and send first class.
            Telephone bids will be accepted at any time before the sale (but the earlier the better). These bids        should be confirmed in writing, even if the written confirmation will not reach us until after the         auction. Numbers are 0131 552 1220, or 0131 478 7021.
            A mobile number (07974 962649) can be called on the afternoon and evening of sale only.
            Fax bids; no fax facility is available.
            E-mail bids should be sent to us at auction@stamp-shop.com at any time from the moment you         receive this catalogue until
2.45pm on Monday 26 March. Please do not e-mail bids to us after that
            time. Please use the format and wording used on the bid form that comes with your auction cat-
            alogue, and include your postal address. (We have a back-up email address of stamps@blueyonder.co.uk in case of problems.) We normally confirm receipt of email bids within
            24 hours (not on the Sunday before the auction, and usually within one hour on the auction day)

 

€uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.8856, so we are allowing 88p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for lots in this auction by Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy some old “legacy” currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

                  

CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Debit Card. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.
In order to deal with postal clients, our bid forms have been designed to make space for credit or debit card instructions.
If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by card, and to have the lots posted.

 

Methods of payment accepted at auction;
              Cash (Sterling, Euro notes)                              Cheque (from established customers)
              Debit Card (no surcharge)                               Credit Card (no surcharge)
Methods of payment accepted after auction; all the above plus
              Direct bank transfer to our account (Robert Murray Stamp Shop, sort code 82-45-05, account
              80371787) but please quote invoice number, and email or phone to advise us of payment,

         We DO NOT charge buyers a handling charge per lot, nor is there VAT added to any sale prices.
Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
         Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing. (Photocopies are available, at a minimal plus postage, or request scans by email.)
