This would have been in the house from way before Princess Diana's birth right up to 2022, the good lady as we know started dating Prince Charles around the age of 16 years old so chances are the princess would have walked passed this piece many times and may even used it to hang a jacket. Condition wise we have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, there will be some age and use related patina marks here and there, mostly its in fine order. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.

Spencer House was conceived as a'Temple of the Arts' for the entertainment of the political, social and cultural elite, and considered the most sumptuous private residence ever built in London.Occupying a central space in the history of British architecture, the state rooms designed by John Vardy and James'Athenian' Stuart were among the first neo-classical interiors in Europe.
