It would appear that my expectations of the Country House Sale Effect came true in the case of the Althorp Attic sale ,which I recently wrote about here.
The sale concluded last week and the prices realised were much, much higher than the sale estimates.
For example, the Spencer State Chariot, seen above, sold for £133,250 against an estimated price of £50,000-£80,000. The amount raised from the sale was a total of £21.1 million. That should secure the new roof…
Did anyone place a bid? Do tell…..
