Catalogue Note

Two large antique Chinese porcelain soldier vases positioned either side of the staircase in the West Hall at Chatsworth were stuffed with a huge array of the last Duke and Duchess's walking sticks and related outdoor paraphernalia and following the move to the Old Vicarage, the Duchess cleverly utilised this chimney-pot found in the garden at the Old Vicarage for the same purpose.
