A Country House Christmas

This Festive Season we are delighted to share this photograph of the Christmas tree at Althorp, twinkling beside a roaring fire and decorated in traditional tones of red and gold. Note the use of natural ornamentation on the mantle – fir branches and pine cones, and the lavish pots of poinsettia flanking the fire.

If you plan on gathering around an open fire during Christmas 2012 consider this Parliament Club Fender, inspired by the 6th Earl Spencer who was a member of the British Parliament in the early 20th Century.

Look out for the fender on retail floors next year.

A finely carved mahogany club fender, the button leather seat above brass gallery supports and a dipped centre, on a Vitruvian scroll carved mahogany base.
