LONDON.- A selection of works of art from Althorp and Spencer House (the historic London home of the Spencer family) is to be offered on 6, 7 and 8 July at Christie’s King Street and South Kensington salerooms, with individual estimates from £200 to £12 million.

The sale previews are open to the public from Saturday 3 July, and offer the chance to see masterpieces by Rubens and Guercino, as well as selected contents from the attics and store rooms at Althorp and arguably the most important group of aristocratic 19th century horse-drawn family carriages that remains in existence.

• The OLD MASTERS AND 19TH CENTURY ART EVENING SALE on 6 July at King Street will offer two masterpieces from the Spencer Collections; A Commander being armed for Battle by Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) (estimate: £8 million to £12 million) and King David, by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, Il Guercino (1591-1666) (estimate: £5 million to £8 million).

• THE ALTHORP ATTIC SALE: INCLUDING THE SPENCER CARRIAGES, will be offered on 7th and 8th July 2010 at Christie’s South Kensington, and will offer arguably the most important group of aristocratic 19th century horse-drawn family carriages that remains in existence, as well as coronation chairs, Coachmen's livery, Butler's trays, riding whips and saddles, kitchen copper jelly moulds and several centuries of textiles – with estimates from £200 to £80,000.

• THE SPENCER HOUSE SALE will take place at King Street on 8 July 2010 and will offer an important selection of furniture, works of art and porcelain formerly from Spencer House, the London town house of the Spencer family until 1924 (which is still owned by the family, but is leased to tenants) which has been housed until recently at Althorp.
