The Stanley Museum will hold its ninth special consignment auction of steam car parts, literature and other ephemera on Saturday, September 13, 2014 in Kingfield, Maine at 9:00 am (preview September 12 from 10 am to 4 pm and September 13 from 7 am to 9 am). The auction will be held, rain or shine, under a tent outside the Stanley Museum at 40 School Street, Kingfield, and will also be conducted live over the World Wide Web via Invaluable (www.invaluable.com) .

            The purpose of the Stanley Museum Consignment Auction is two-fold: first, to help raise funds to support the Museum; and second, to help fulfill one of the Museum’s objectives by providing access for its members to rare and hard-to-find steam car parts to help keep their steam cars operational and out on the road. The Museum’s consignment auction is one of the primary methods of keeping vital steam car parts circulating among the collectors who need them.

            This year the Stanley Museum auction will present over 370 lots, including three vintage Stanley steam cars – all in superb driving condition. These highly sought-after cars include Stanley Model 740 5-passenger touring cars from 1922 and 1923, and a 1911 Model 63 brass-era Stanley.

            The auction will also offer numerous sought-after steam engines, parts, and hardware, as well as many unique items including rare vintage photographs and special tools used in servicing Stanleys.


.  Our 9th Consignment Auction of Steam Cars, Parts, Literature, & Memorabilia and the Museum's Annual Meeting of Members are being held in collaboration with the Kingfield Bicentennial and Thomaston Place Auction Galleries', annual Antique Appraisal Day.   The Auction benefits the Stanley Museum while the Antique Appraisal Day, scheduled for Friday, September 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., benefits the Kingfield Bicentennial. We would encourage you to support this event by bringing items to be appraised.   The Annual Meeting of the Stanley Museum Membership will be held on Friday, September 12, 2014, at 5:30 pm, in the Herbert Grand Hotel, 246 Main Street, Kingfield, Maine. Prior to the Annual Meeting, the Museum will sponsor a social hour from 4:30 to 5:30 in the Herbert.  Music will be provided complements of Kingfield Bicentennial  and the Stanley Museum. The public is invited.  These events are not to be missed.

            As in years past the Stanley Museum auction will be conducted in the customary smooth and professional style of the Thomaston Place Auction Galleries of Thomaston, Maine (www.thomastonauction.com). The Museum is indebted once again to Thomaston Place Auction Galleries and their entire crew for donating their services, bringing the auction into the digital age, and ensuring that our auction will be a huge success.
