Part Two…The Final Year of Downton Abbey

 I can picture Lady Fiona Carnarvon, the Eighth Countess of Carnarvon using this beautiful Bureau Plat as a desk. The Countess was the featured speaker a year ago for the design conference that I attended.I recommend the two books which she has written. These books will enrich your knowledge of Highclere and its place in history. Note the exquisite pieces in this room that are, like the bureau plat, quite European. The wealthy of the time imported much of their furniture from famous European makers.
