The late Joan Rivers was never shy about asking people about what (or who) they were wearing on the red carpet, and now the public will get its chance to learn about what the beloved comedienne herself owned. A number of items from her Manhattan penthouse will go on sale through Christie’s this June, according to a press release the auction house released today. A portion of the proceeds will go to the charities God’s Love We Deliver and Guide Dogs For The Blind.
Among the items for sale will be costumes made by Bob Mackie, jewelry from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, a Edouard Vuillard painting from circa 1915 and a Fabergé “jeweled nephrite study of a Lily of the Valley leaf.” There will be an online and live sale and prices are estimated to be between $500 to $200,000.
Rivers died in September 2014 at the age of 81. Her lavish triplex penthouse on the Upper East Side sold in June for $28 million.
