GLEN COVE, N.Y. – Items from Sefton Manor, the Tudor Revival-style home in Long Island once owned by cosmetics heiress Lillian Sefton Dodge (1880-1960), are included in the two-day estates sale (Day 1, Day 2) at Roland Auctions on Friday, August 25 and Saturday, August 26. A total of 44 lots come from the property – now the Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf – with proceeds going to the charity. Bidding is available via LiveAuctioneers.

Headline items from the consignment include a pair of 18K gold Tiffany & Co. star-form diamond and sapphire earrings, estimated at $2,500-$3,500, plus a 14K gold Tiffany & Co. shell-footed pin tray, estimated at $3,000-$4,000.

Estimated at $4,000-$6,000 is a pair of George III silver chalices by the esteemed London silversmith John Bridge. With a full set of marks for 1824 and weighing 38oz, one is engraved to the foot with a presentation inscription to Lillian Sefton Dodge, dated 1952.

By that time Dodge, the highest-paid woman executive in America during the 1930s, had left the 34-room house she had built with her husband Robert Leftwich Dodge at a cost of £2 million (roughly $2.5 million) in 1923. It became a school for deaf children in 1951 and was used for classes until 2002. Now open to the public, it is famed for its interior metalwork by Samuel Yellin.
