The Graham Geddes Collection: Previous Loans

The lots withdrawn from the sale of the Graham Geddes collection at Bonhams on October 15, 2008 had previously been on display in four separate locations in Melbourne, Australia. Indeed, other parts of the collection had been on loan to different museums (e.g. Apulian pottery at auction in October 2008; earlier material sold through Christie's).

What were the loan policies of these museums? Do the museums require loans to have a recorded history that can be traced back before the 1970 UNESCO Convention?
