Lucan's desk appears for auction





The 7th Earl of Lucan vanished in 1974 after the murder of his children's nanny at the family's London home.

His body has never been found and the disappearance remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of recent times.

Bonhams has been instructed by Lady Lucan to sell the 19th Century desk, used at her former home at 46 Lower Belgrave Street, at a sale on 11 March.

Guy Savill, head of Bonhams' fine furniture department, said: "Because of its association with Lord Lucan and the mystery surrounding his disappearance, which continues to generate fascination decades later, the sale of the desk will doubtless arouse a great deal of interest."
