Art is an international trader in rare Persian rugs. In June 2012 he received a delivery of an exceptional rug and wrote
to his three most frequent international clients, Bon, Con, and Dan saying that he was offering to sell the rug for
Bon immediately responded that he accepted the offer of the rug but was only willing to pay $75,000.
Con also replied immediately, stating that he accepted Art’s offer but that he would not be able to pay the full amount
Dan replied that he would pay the offered price, but only if Art could supply an additional four rugs of equal quality.
Before receiving any of these replies, Art actually sold the rug to Ek, a local client, for $105,000.
In the context of the rules governing the creation of contracts under the UN Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods, advise:
(a) as to the precise legal nature of Art’s original letter;
(b) whether Bon has any right of action against Art;
(c) whether Con has any right of action against Art;
(d) whether Dan has any right of action against ArtMay 30, 2020 at 7:22 am
And in which direction do your thoughts lie? Tell me what your thoughts are and I’ll let you know if I agree with you
(It’s a bit stupid of Art to make the same offer to three people simultaneously!)
