Birmingham Edgar Whittindale and London, Chapman Rogers Auctioneers 11-12 March 1925

Very good copy. 31pp letterpress. Wrappers with red and black titles. Ribbon ties. Un - illustrated catalogue. The last Earl of Craven to live in Coombe Abbey was William Craven, 4th Earl of Craven. When he died in 1921 his wife Cornelia Countess of Craven decided to sell the property. It was bought in 1923 by a Coventry builder named John Grey. Initially he held a contents sale but 18 months later held the sale described in this catalogue. It included such items as staircases, panelled rooms, plaster ceilings, over-mantels and chimney pieces, floors, roofing and windows. All these were still part of the house, and it was up to the buyers to remove them. Many items went to the United States of America, but others remained in England. A staircase is understood to have gone to Solihull, Birmingham, while at least one fireplace went to a country house in Yorkshire. Fascinating list of items sold before demolition of much of the 19th century work which was that of W E Nesfield.
