Manor House Treasures & Phoenix, AZ, Part 2 of 3
Manor House Treasures
The Roadshow is taking inspiration from the furnishings and finery of the sprawling estates in popular period dramas such as “Downton Abbey” and “Upstairs, Downstairs” for its new special, featuring extraordinary objects from across the pond and beyond. Highlights that would fit right in any of the stately homes of the rich and powerful include: a Lord Byron cellarette and portrait, ca. 1810; a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk, ca. 1915, that was gifted to the caretakers of an estate; and a Louis Comfort Tiffany necklace, ca. 1905, that belonged to the owner’s wealthy great-grandmother and is appraised for $75,000 to $100,000.
