LONDON.- An eclectic range of furniture, clocks, mirrors and paintings from Shelley’s Hotel, once the home of revered English Romantic poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley will be sold at Bonhams Period Design sale on 10th July, in London.

The collection formed part of the decoration at Shelley’s Hotel in Lewes, Sussex, where the great poet once lived and worked. The vendor has close ties with the property, as his family first established the hotel and furnished the property with pieces from their family home of Antioch House, Lewes. Most recently the pieces have been removed from Little Antioch and will be sold at Bonhams, Knightsbridge.

Items from this private collection range from £200 to £5,000 and include a beautiful pair of late George III mahogany and satinwood card tables estimated at £3,000 – 5,000. Also among the varied collection are a number of handsome clocks, including an impressive mid 18th century French stained horn and gilt bronze mounted timepiece (£2,500 – 3,500) and a Regency mahogany fusee bracket clock (£1,200 – 1,800).

Charlie Thomas, Head of Period Design at Bonhams comments “It is rare for such a well-known collection to come on the market - especially one that includes so many beautiful pieces of furniture and decoration. There are some exquisite pieces in the sale and we are expecting a great deal of interest.”
