The £1million contents of a majestic 16th century English country house including its eye-catching tapestries, paintings and antique furniture have emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
The jewel in the crown in the everything must go sale at North Mymms Park is a collection of 19 large European tapestries which are each valued at £20,000.<br />
<br />
The 12ft by 17ft tapestries were crafted in weaving workshops across northern Europe from the mid 16th to mid 18th century and have hung in the Grade I listed manor 'of exceptional interest' near Colney, Herts, for over 100 years. <br />
<br />
They were purchased by Anglo-American banker Walter Hayes Burns who acquired the estate in 1893 to accommodate his growing art collection and whose family owned it until 1979.
