Lot Essay

These globes and stands were formerly in the collection of Nancy Lancaster (1897-1994). Born in Virginia, she became the owner of Colefax & Fowler, the influential British decorating firm that codified what is known as the English country house look. Her collaboration with the late John Fowler and the style of decoration and furniture arranging that they developed together remains a strong force in interior design today. Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire was her first major house in England, taken with her husband Ronald Tree for the hunting, while her last house was Haseley Court in Oxfordshire.
