Christie’s Country House Sale
21 June 2004
London – On 21 June 2004, Christie’s will stage a classic Country House Sale of works of art and
household objects from the private collection of the Myddelton family at Chirk Castle, Wrexham,
Wales. The superb auction will comprise a diverse selection of over five hundred objects from the
family wing at the Castle, the majority never seen by the public before. Highlights will include
furniture, paintings, ceramics, books and silver as well as antique household effects.
“After long discussions, we have decided with sadness to leave our private apartment at Chirk Castle. The Myddelton
family has had an unbroken connection with the property since 1595 so this has not been an easy decision,” said Guy
Myddelton. “The National Trust who run Chirk Castle very effectively now welcome around 80,000 visitors a year.
While we are pleased that so many people come to visit and enjoy the Castle and its grounds, it has become too busy an
environment to bring up our young children. We will not be able to take all our belongings with us to our new home,
hence we have instructed Christie’s to stage this sale in June.”
“We are confident that this auction will not only provide an opportunity to introduce the rich history of Chirk Castle
to a wider audience but will also give collectors, both private and institutional, a fantastic opportunity to acquire fine
works of art and household mementos”, said Richard Roundell, Vice-Chairman of Christie’s UK and
Representative of Christie’s in Wales.
