It’s a step up from the tents we spend our ‘authentic’ events in and probably a darn sight warmer – a house with furniture from the 17th Century has gone under the hammer.
According to The Daily Mail, “Auctioneers on a routine house inspection have uncovered a treasure trove of valuable antique items hailing from the 17th century.
The house was so filled with period furniture that the staff from Charles Hanson auctioneers said it was as if they had stepped back in time.
The black and white timbered property near Lichfield, Staffordshire contained furnishings including four poster beds, tapestries, longcase clocks and bible boxes.”
Even on the two photos with the article it’s clear to see what an absolute treasure trove this house was.
It’s a real privilege to be able to visit properties with 17th Century history, never mind perform in or at them. Hopefully, we help bring alive the people who would have enjoyed this simple but – for the time – comfortable existence.
