When I was England years ago I was lucky enough to go to a to the above, entire house contents auction. It was held over two days in a huuuge! marquee which was set up in a part of it's fabulous grounds, a friend and I sat with our picnic lunches for the entire two day auction. It was a once in a life time experience for me and I loved every single second of it.
There where wealthy phone bidders from all over the world and on site, as well as hundreds of people like myself with limited funds.
There was the most amazing 'stuff' going up for auction, viewing the contents and walking around this amazing house on the open days was an amazing experience, I shall never forget I went to every single one of them and then never really had time to look at everything or appreciated most of it.
I sat down at the start of the auction nervously with my list and purse! in hand ready to bid, but I never stood a chance the prices went thought the roof! I obviously had good taste as everything I wanted everybody else wanted much more than I did.
I managed to get a few things that I love to bits and think now! that I was very lucky to get. They were things that I had never viewed, I know not a good move, but I did ok! I would like to share over the coming days these items.
The fourth photo gives a brief history about the family and house.
Thank you for looking.
