Bed Guru can reveal the estimated value of the bedroom interior featured in the hit series Bridgerton. Bridgerton is set in 1813, two years after the regency era came to fruition in the UK. The Regency era in the UK was a period at the end of the Georgian era, when George, Prince of Wales, governed the country as ‘Regent’, because of his father being declared as unfit to rule in 1811. The style of furniture in this era can be described as dark, elegant, and flamboyant.
The cast lived up to the regency style and never failed to look lavishing in their 1800’s outfits, and they truly lived like royalty in their luxuriously decked out bedrooms – but how much would the bedroom interior fetch in the real world?
According to expert antique appraisers at David Duggleby in collaboration with Bed Guru, the bedrooms featured in the hit series could be worth up to £8,000 each today.
The UK based antique valuer and bed and mattress provider estimated that if all the Bridgerton interior props were real, such as the bed, the chest of drawers and the artwork, they would be valued at £8,000, maybe even more!
To ensure an approximate valuation was given, Bed Guru enlisted the help of expert antique appraisers. Antique appraisers have an eye for desirable and authentic antiques, and the Bridgerton set certainly lived up to the antique regency generation.
