Chatsworth Auction...

Peter has just returned from a week in London. While he was there he discovered that Sotheby's is auctioning off antiques and other assorted fittings belonging to the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire and her late husband, from their many country estates - Chatsworth, Chiswick House, Bolton Abbey, Hardwick Hall, Holker Hall and Lismore Castle.

This is surely going to be one of the great auctions of the century. Those of you who follow our blog will know that I am a keen fan of Chatsworth. We shall be keeping our eye in on the event - we may need to plan another trip to London!


  1. It seems to be fashionable amongst the aristocracy, following as it does from the Althorp attic sale, and the Kent (Princess Marina) sale.

  2. Not only another trip to London but a shipping container too I suspect;o)

  3. Unfortunately there is a lot of interest here in the UK and I suspect prices will be high.
