Copperfox Welsh Sale/Auction
I am pleased to be offering you an auction from Kelly Sealeys own collection of welsh Cobs. If you are not already aware she is the sculptor of the Infamous and fabulous Copperfox Welsh Cob.
They will all be sold on a best offer basis - each piece will have a starting price and a reserve (there is no buy it now)
Offers will end starting at 1pm UK Saturday 15th May - Please check your local time if you are outside the UK, but as an approximation only - USA EDT - 8am, Australia AWST - 8pm and most of Europe are currently an hour ahead. As there are several pieces there will be staggered finish times, that way if you miss your favourite you can bid on another, or keep a track of what you are winning so not to over stretch your budget. They will be split half to finish 15th May and half on the 16th May
HOW TO PLACE A BID
Each piece will have its own Facebook album on the Mad Dog Facebook Page
https://www.facebook.com/Mad-Dog-Models-104822341288071/photos/?ref=page_internal - this link takes you to the main album page.
You need to click onto the album and add your bid, by leaving a comment. (if there are lots of bids sort them by newest first, FB does have a habit of mixing things up or leaving them from peoples view) In the album there is only the main picture - for all other pictures and condition reports please refer to the below where a more detailed report is shown.
If you wish to remain anonymous or have issues with Facebook, you can send me a private bid via messenger or by email to email@example.com. Private bids will close 15 mins before each auction ends, to give me time to update the album manually. Should there be a tie at the end of the auction those bidders only will be given the chance to bid with their final bid.

Each Piece comes with an Original Copperfox Box - some with foam inserts, some just bubbled wrapped. Kelly has signed each piece on the underside of the hoof with her initials and mouse logo and your Invoice will show that you have bought it from the Kelly Sealey sale.
Before we get to the full details, all the pieces (unless stated) i would live show in the UK , in a breed/halter class - some do have a few flaws, most of the small paint flaws are easily fixable for anyone who wishes to do that, a few mould flaws but no more that your standard Breyer or other Copperfox pieces. Most are as good as the standard as when they were issued. I cannot guarantee no flaking of paint will happen in the future, but if there is any sign of it, it will be mentioned. these are really lovely pieces, but i have listed them as accurately and honestly as possible. If the flaws show up on the camera i will include a picture. I am being overly picky, some of these are rare and pricey pieces, so as a live show judge i am really casting a critical eye over them, so there is no misunderstanding.
Some of this pieces are FIRST EDITIONS - given or purchased exclusively to/by the supporters of the Copperfox Kickstarter Crowdfunding platform, so they are variations of the actual productions runs.
