The auction offers further collector?s pieces and curiosities? a pair of Indian ivory dolls, a vintage composition torso as a medical aid, a unicorn figure, a carousel lion, a life-size figure of a London Beefeater Gin mascot as well as the taxidermy of a buffalo head are evidences of a widely travelled lord of the castle.
