This Saturday at Carlton Scroop near Grantham there will be a rare opportunity to attend a Country House sale conducted on site in a marquee.
These events rarely happen in the modern era, due to modern day restrictions concerning access, heath & safety and security.
Instruction from Colonel & Mrs Patrick Bowlby were received to sell the residual contents of the Manor, together with surplus furnishings from properties in Scotland.
The premises ticked all the boxes for a sale onsite and the quality of the consignment ensured a sale of the highest caliber could be prepared.
Selected other entries are included in the sale, notably from the Great House at Kegworth, culminating in over 300 lots of fine antiques, works of art, books and collectables. A further 150 lots of general household furniture and effect are also included.
Viewing starts 10am Wednesday and viewing times range right up to the start of the sale at 10am on Saturday 26th September.
Even if you cannot attend the sale, the catalogue is available online or a hard copy can be ordered at The Grantham Auction Rooms (01476 565118) for £10, which covers four fine auction sales.
