caroline Ing and joana lamas alerted me to the grandest of sales which I think we can all appreciate. The current Duke and Duchess of Devonshire need to do a little spring cleaning (probably after all those recent renovations) and have commissioned Sotheby's to clean out their attic and auction off a good amount of the treasures they find in there. This comes right after Georgiana's childhood home Althorp, had their auction. You, yes you, can now own literally, a piece of Chatsworth. I say literally because I saw a few door frames in there.
You can view the lot on 1-4 of October this year and the sale begins after that from 5-7 October. It even appears that there might be a few Georgiana-related goodies, especially since some of the items are rescued pieces from Devonshire House (Georgie's true haunt). But for now I will take the tea set.
