WENTWORTH, N.C. -- Ancient and replica Egyptian pieces will be on display at Chinqua Penn Plantation, a 1920s-era mansion in Wentworth built by a North Carolina businessman and his wife.
Among the items on display beginning Saturday are a reproduction of King Tut's famous golden throne chair that Thomas and Beatrice Penn commissioned while on a world tour in 1929.
Also on display will be a 1600 B.C. bronze figure of the Egyptian deity Horus; a glazed earthenware necklace; and an ivory fail.
The 27-room English countryside mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's filled with furnishings from 30 countries and sits on 22 acres.
