Included in this sale are sets of horse-drawn carriages, amongst the hundreds of other items. There are enough lots in this catalogue to furnish many large antique shops, and they would have to be very large to accommodate half a dozen royal carriages, but not as large as the attic of Athorp house.
That isn't the only house they have either. A few years ago, I made some huge, Portland stone, urn finials for Spencer House in London. I wonder if they will be having a car-boot sale there in the near future?
I must take a peep up in our attic. Who knows what compact but adorable curios may be gathering dust right now, as I write?
