A George II irish mahohany side table sold for £75,000
A grand country house is bracing itself for a huge influx of international visitors as its contents of antiques, furniture and paintings go on display ahead of an everything-must-go sale.
The auction of a myriad of treasures inside Athelhampton House in Dorset, which is expected to raise over £1million, is being hailed as one of the best country house sales for a generation.
The doors of the £7m Tudor mansion will be thrown open to visitors and potential bidders for four days from tomorrow (Sat).
