Next week we’ll be taking a leaf out of Del Boy and Rodney Trotter’s book and cleaning our enormous chandelier in the Saloon. The chandelier is by the French firm Bacarrat and dates from about 1860. It’s made of ormolu and cut glass, and is comprised of around 4,000 drops – no wonder it takes us several days to clean!
We’ll be cleaning the chandelier and six matching sconces in the Saloon from Monday 9 to Friday 13 June, 12.30-4.30pm. Why not pop along and see us in action – no Only Fools and Horses jokes necessary!
