Lauren Bacall's Belongings Sell for $3.6 Million—Sneak a Peek!
The 2-day auction for the collection of prized possessions belonging to the late, great Lauren Bacall ended today at Bonhams New York, with the total sum clocking in at $3.6 million. Bonhams reported that more than 1,500 bidders from 34 countries vied for the collection, which included artwork, jewellery, furniture and other big ticket items such as the steamer trunk (auctioned for $47,500) that once belonged to Bacall’s first husband Humphrey Bogart.
The Oscar-winning actress, who died at age 89 in August, is remembered for her many iconic roles, particularly in film noirs, during Hollywood's Golden Age, and her trademark sultry irreverence. A lover of art and an enthusiastic collector, Bacall’s 4,000-square-foot Manhattan apartment in the Dakota Building on 72nd Street was filled with treasures and collectibles, all of which were on display at the New York auction house. Scroll now to take a look inside Bacall's Manhattan apartment, and to see some of the items in the collection.
