A Fond Farewell….Part One The Final Year of Downton Abbey

The PBS Masterpiece series, Downton Abbey, is approaching its final season. No big deal....WRONG! It really is a big deal to those of us who follow the Crawley Family as if personally received by invitation each Sunday evening. ( I have been known to break away from events just to get home in time, forget recording).It is one of the most delightful series I have ever experienced.

To my great pleasure, the series has given the viewer an opportunity to experience the period antiques incorporated within the settings. It is a marvelous study of the evolution of costume and design. Each detail and fabric is perfected to the time periods and changes throughout the course of the episodes.

I will be presenting a particular piece of antique furniture that is featured in the series in conjunction with those pieces that we feature here at Pickwick Antiques. Check our blog for this continued series.

The Carlton House Desk* in its specifc form was supposedly designed for the Prince of Wales( Later King George IV) by George Hepplewhite. The name was derived from Carlton House,the residence of the time for the Prince of Wales.
