CAMBRIDGE.- The principal contents that once adorned one of Britain’s finest privately-owned country houses will be sold at Cheffins in September.

Over 200 lots from the Grade I listed Mawley Hall in Shropshire will be offered at The Fine Sale, held on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th September at Cheffins’ Cambridge salesroom.

The high-quality consignment includes paintings, furniture, Chinese ceramics, decorative items and carpets.

Mawley Hall was commissioned to be built in the 18th century by Sir Edward Blount and has changed hands only twice since, most recently in September 2018 by a family who wish to remain private when the guide price was set at £10 million.

Following the purchase of Mawley Hall, Cheffins Fine Art have been instructed to sell the principal contents of the house.

Luke Macdonald, director at Cheffins Fine Art, said: “We are expecting a lot of interest in the Mawley Hall consignment, given the high quality of the lots on offer and that they are fresh to the market.

“The consignment augments a strong catalogue at one of our flagship sales of the year.”
