Manor House Contents at Auction

The contents of a Somerset Manor house are being sold by Charterhouse in Sherborne in their two day auction on Thursday 1st & Friday 2nd October.

“It is a beautiful looking property which in part dates back to the 15th century.” Commented Richard Bromell. “We were invited to the house, which is near Bridgwater, to advise on disposing of the contents as a family member ad moved into care and the house was being sold.”

Removed to the Charterhouse salerooms in Sherborne from the Somerset manor house is an eclectic selection of items. The contents was amassed over a period of nearly 50 years by the owner who had been an antiques dealer. She kept all her favourite pieces in the house which she could not bring herself to sell at the time.

This Manor House was furnished with a traditional country house look. There is 17th century and later oak furniture, there are stuffed animals, clocks, pictures, books, ceramics, glass, copper and brass, all of which is going under the Charterhouse gavel. Overall the contents is estimated to sell for £15,000-20,000.
