Pavilion provides pleasant surprise

Essex house contents sold in North Yorkshire include Madonna and Child at £135,000

Art market

Selling the contents of historic estates, especially those in the same family for several generations, will often throw up surprises.

This was true of North Yorkshire saleroom Tennants (20% buyer’s premium), which offered a collection of continental Old Masters and other antiques from a nine-bedroom house in Essex on November 18.

Le Pavilion, which had been in the same family since 1938 and is currently on the market for £7.5m, was formerly the principal dwelling on the Shortgrove Estate. This sprawling property was originally built in the 16th century, with gardens and surrounding parkland designed by Capability Brown.

With the help of appealing estimates and an Old Master sleeper, the 10-lot picture group contributed just under £230,000 to the bottom line.
