Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are delighted to be offering a collection of  items from the attics at Castle Hill in North Devon on the instructions of The Earl and Countess of Arran.

Among the many items are a selection of French and Chinese period porcelain, including an 18th century Armorial part dinner service. Made during the reign of George I, the delicate porcelain survived the long journey from China to be pride of place at the dining table at Castle Hill. Despite the damage over the years, the colours of the enamelling are as vibrant as they were over 200 years ago.

The collection also includes a number of pieces of period furniture, silver and pictures.
