On March 2, items from the estate of Deborah, the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire will be auctioned at Sotheby’s in London. I was so disappointed to miss the preview of this spectacular auction, which is the UK equivalent to Bunny Mellon’s auction a year and a half ago for its provenance alone.
I scrolled through the on-line catalogue and picked out some items I would have bid on.
