Sinatra selections nice fit for Leland Little’s auction Sept. 13-15
HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. – A selection of clothing items from the personal wardrobe of Frank Sinatra is going up for auction by Leland Little Auction & Estate Sales Ltd., giving fans and collectors a chance to own an item belonging to an icon of a glamorous era. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding for the Sept. 13-15 auction.
The selection from his personal wardrobe, coming up for auction Saturday, Sept. 15, will be sold alongside other celebrity objects including a 14K gold watch that Bob Hope gifted to big-band leader Kay Kyser, and items from notable designers such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Tiffany & Co. It is all part of a three-day gallery auction being conducted by Little.
This is not the first time the public has had an opportunity to bid on items owned by the legendary singer and film actor. In 1995, Christie’s of New York sold a collection of Sinatra’s belongings for $2.07 million. And, since his death in 1998, items from his personal collection continue to sell at auction, including everything from his cars to his personal credit cards.
President and auctioneer Leland Little says, “We are excited and proud to continue this year’s success by presenting several excellent collections and choice fine and decorative arts in this fall cataloged auction. Over three days, we will open with 270 lots of rare and fine wine followed by regional art and anchored by over 750 lots of national and international level objects.”
For those unable to attend the auction, online bidding is available with the opportunity of following the sale via a live video and audio feed.
Other highlights from the three-day auction include fine jewelry, sterling silver, rare and fine wines, Oriental carpets, Meissen porcelain, Southern pottery, antique furniture, and American and international art.
