By invitation only, some 200 guests of Jarrettsville Furniture mingled yesterday in an Earl Grey-infused vapor of gentility and celebrity. They were there to meet Charles, the ninth Earl Spencer and the late Princess Diana's entrepreneurial younger brother, who has turned his aristocratic pedigree into a furniture brand, the Althorp Living History collection. Bill and Gail Kuester came from Hagerstown to get their new Althorp chest of drawers autographed by Spencer. It was a little more cumbersome than having a book or photograph signed, but the couple carried their burden with good humor.

A peer of the British realm travels to Harford County tomorrow to talk a little history, share a spot of tea and show off replicas of furnishings from Althorp, his 500-acre estate in Northhamptonshire. Charles Edward Maurice Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer and maternal uncle of the heir to England's throne, will hold court at Jarrettsville Furniture, where he will promote a line of high-end furniture that he helped design. The earl's visit will include a receiving line that meanders through rooms filled with precise reproductions patterned after furnishings of the earl's 165-room ancestral home, and an English tea. Spencer makes at least one trip annually to the former colonies to oversee design and production of the Althorp line and decided to add the Jarrettsville visit to his itinerary, said Alan Schrum, the furniture company's director of marketing.
