The scarce catalogue for the sale of the contents of the Old Vicarage, Edensor, the final home of Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire. As the youngest of the Mitford Sisters and the chatelaine of Chatsworth for many years, the Duchess lived an eventful life. The contents of the 'Old Vic' are testament to this, personal belongings telling the story of a life well lived. Over 400 lots were included in the sale and are illustrated here, alongside photos of the beautifully decorated vicarage before it was packed-up. An excerpt from the Duchess' book Home to Roast is included.
