The Althorp Living History Collection

Brights of Nettlebed offer the opportunity to own an exquisitely hand-crafted item endorsed by Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, inspired by the collection at Althorp House, built up over 500 years and 20 generations of the same family for their home.

We have sponsored the unmissable Althorp Literary Festival for the last four consecutive years - hearing famous authors in the setting of one of Englands best loved historic houses has proved to be a winning combination.  We have also been fortunate for Earl Spencer to give two fascinating talks at our Dorset showroom with all proceeds donated to Whole Child, a charity devoted to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned, abused, and neglected children worldwide. Donations are also made by us in relation to our sales of Althorp Living History furniture.

Dark mahogany Bar or Drinks Cabinet with Parcel Gilt and Fine Brass Inlay
Dark mahogany Bar or Drinks Cabinet with Parcel Gilt and Fine Brass Inlay

A mahogany, chestnut burl veneered, parcel gilt and finely brass decorated Bar cabinet. The pierced brass gallery top above two faux drawer fronted cabinet doors and centered by a further doors with a columned grand entrance with finely cast and pierced brass mounts, the doors enclosing a lit, fitted and mirror backed interior with two drawers and adjustable glass shelves, above a base with a concealed drawer and square legs with fretwork spandrels brackets and block feet.

Inspired by a 17th century Spanish Collector's Cabinet at Althorp in red tortoiseshell with very fine brass mounts. The base of the cabinet would have originally been different but the Althorp cabinet was adapted in the Georgian period and in the Chinese Chippendale style. The original central cabinet door contains a classical figure and would likely have been mounted on claw and ball feet which in the Althorp example were removed.
