This pair of Chinese lacquer altar tables were likely to have been inherited by the 3rd Viscount Hambleden through his wife, who was the daughter of the 15th Earl of Pembroke

Estimates range from £300 ($445) for a number of bookcases, to £25,000 ($37,200) for a pair of 19th century Chinese black and gilt lacquer altar tables.

Hambleden Manor was decorated by English interior designers Colefax and Fowler during the 1950s; the sale represents a rare opportunity for collectors to purchase "a slice of decorating history," according to Homes & Property magazine.

"It is hard to exaggerate the influence of Colefax and Fowler on the English interior," the magazine asserts.

On July 23-24, another important stately home sale is scheduled to take place. The contents of historic Cornwall property Trelissick House are to go under the hammer in association with Bonhams.
