Lien of bailees for hire
§ 186. Lien of bailees for hire. Every person, firm or corporation
engaged in performing work upon any watch, clock or jewelry for a price
shall have a lien upon any such watch, clock or jewelry upon which such
person, firm or corporation performs such work for the amount of any
account that may be due for such work. Such lien shall also include the
value or agreed price, if any, of all materials furnished by such
bailees for hire in connection with such work, whether added to such
article or articles or otherwise. If such account remain unpaid for one
year, after completing such work, such bailees for hire may, upon thirty
days' notice in writing to the owner specifying the amount due and
informing him that the payment of such amount within thirty days will
entitle him to redeem such property, sell any such article or articles
at public or bona fide private sale to satisfy the account. The proceeds
of the sale, after paying the expenses thereof, shall be applied in
liquidation of the indebtedness secured by such lien and the balance, if
any, shall be paid over to the owner. Such notice may be served by mail,
directed to the owner's last known address, or, if the owner or his
address be unknown, it may be posted in two public places in the town,
village or city where the property is located. Such notice shall be
written or printed. Nothing herein contained shall preclude the remedy
of enforcing such lien by action, as provided in article nine of this
