Dunrobin Attic Sale

It seems like everyone was cleaning out their closets and cupboards during the pandemic even castles. The Dunrobin Attic Sale is scheduled for 20 April 2021 at Bonhams in Edinburgh and will include more than 450 lots of paintings, portraits and historic photographs, picture frames, marble sculptures, crested dinner services, and an array of treasures from the castle’s kitchen and cellar. Not sure anyone needs a chamberpot these days but they and the footbaths look like they’d make great cachepots for plants and flowers.

“The Dunrobin Attic Sale provides a glorious opportunity to purchase a piece of history from one of Scotland’s grandest and most historic castles. Many of the items have been hidden away in Dunrobin Castle for generations and never been seen on the open market before. They provide a wonderful snapshot of what it was like to live both upstairs – and downstairs – in the Highlands’ premier ducal palace.”

Charlie Thomas, Director of House Sales, Bonhams
