WHILE the weather is still unseasonably cold, Stonor will benefit over Easter from the new heating system recently installed. To have warmth in all the rooms has added greatly to the feel of this special family home.
The writer Beatrix Potter is very special to Stonor as she was Lady Camoys’ cousin and a quiz for children will be available on Easter Sunday and Monday based on her books.
Visitors will find a fine display of Japanese contemporary ceramics complementing other ceramics from England, Korea and Denmark. Lord Camoys has collected contemporary ceramics for more than 22 years and has had the privilege of meeting many of the artists in person on his travels to the Far East and Denmark. See how contemporary art sits so comfortably in an older setting.
Also on display are the dresses, worn at various events during the débutante season, which were on public display at Kensington Palace in 2009 and 2010 in an exhibition called The Last Débutantes, 1958: Season Of Change. Lady Camoys was one of the last débutantes to be presented — and to curtsey — to the Queen in 1958, after which the tradition ended.
