Shooting lodge’s contents to go under hammer in city

The contents of the Scottish shooting lodge and country home of the 27th Lord Mowbray and 21st Lord Stourton, are to be sold at Bonhams Edinburgh.

The sale features a number of important pictures including a 17th century portrait of Henry, 3rd Lord Arundel of Wardour and Keeper of the Privy Seal, in armour, by the British painter John Michael Wright. The portrait is estimated to fetch £8000-£10,000.

Among the hundreds of fascinating items are the Coronation robe and coronet worn by the 24th Lord Mowbray and 21st Lord Stourton at the Coronation of Edward VII in 1902, and a remarkable and rare pair of 18th century Worcester vases decorated in the Soho workshop of James Giles.

Miranda Grant, Bonhams managing director in Scotland, said: ‘This wonderfully eclectic mix of items could only have come from one of the most distinguished families in Britain. ”
