Carwinion House contents up for auction
9:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
The contents of the house and garden of the Carwinion estate in Mawnan Smith will go under the hammer this week as the National Trust prepares for a new chapter in the estate’s history.
More than two centuries of family history on the estate came to an end with the death of Anthony Rogers. His widow, Jane, has been forced to leave her home as under the terms of an agreement signed in 1969 the property has now passed to the National Trust.
As a result of this, two auctions will be held over three days, with David Lay at the helm. The first will be held at the Penzance Auction House tomorrow and Friday (October 10/11) which will feature much of the fine furnishings from the manor house including |the Anthony Rogers fountain pen collection.
Then, on October 19, an auction will be held at Carwinion when the garden’s rare and exotic plants will be sold to the highest bidders. Anyone interested is invited to view the lots during the week leading up to the sale.
