Silent Auction for a Well-loved
Gloucester (Children’s) Rocker

Bid Form for Gloucester Rocker Silent Auction

The Mahone Bay Centre has received the donation of a Gloucester Rocker which we have decided to auction off to a new home between now and Tuesday 19 December.  The rocker is made of wood: 36 inches long, 18 inches wide and weighs a sturdy 16 pounds (approximately).

It is an elegant classic design, carrying a nameplate “the Original Gloucester Rockers, Hull No. 4184”.

Rocker

The Centre intends to pass on this rocker by holding a form of a “silent auction” whereby potential buyers can submit a bid either in person or by email.  The internet reveals that the original sales price of these quality rockers was $499.99 US. Given that this is a used rocker, but in very good condition, we are setting a starting minimum bid price of $150.

 

The auction will take place in three Phases:

First: until 1200 Monday 4 December when all bids will be reviewed and a new minimum bid value will be determined for the next round (based upon the highest bid). COMPLETED- Highest bid $500

Second: until 1200 Monday 11 December when all bids placed in this second round will be reviewed and a new minimum bid will be posted for the final round.
Completed, Highest bid $520

Final Offer: on Friday 15 December a new minimum will be set and Bidders will be invited to make a final offer. Final bids close at noon, Tuesday 19 December.  The winning bid will be announced later that day.

The Rocker is on display at Birdsall Worthington Pottery, 590 Main Street, Mahone Bay, Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm, and Sunday noon – 5pm.  Bids may be deposited there.

Rules:

  1. Bids can only be made either i) in writing on bid forms provided at Birdsall Worthington Pottery or ii) by email at: welcome@mahonebaycentre.org (receipt of email bids will be acknowledged by return email)
  2. Bids must contain all the required information on the form so that we can inform bidders of the status of the auction following each round. The status will also be posted on the Mahone Bay Centre’s web site. All bids, except the final winner, will remain anonymous.
  3. Participants may enter the contest at any of the three stages noted above.
  4. Delivery of the rocker will be at the Mahone Bay Centre, 45 School St. Mahone Bay.
