Greta Garbo’s belonging to be auctioned

PanARMENIAN.Net - Hundreds of items belonging to Greta Garbo, including designer clothing, will be auctioned off in December, Julien's Auctions announced, according to AFP.

The legendary actress's "personal collection... has never been previously available and (is) rarely seen by others," the Beverly Hills-based auctioneers said in a statement.

The sale, set for December 14 and 15, will include clothes and accessories from star designers such as Emilio Pucci, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Furniture, art and decor from her New York apartment and her mansion in Sweden will include "colorful rugs, featuring modern, abstract motifs," the auctioneers said, adding Garbo was "known as a stylish and highly imitated trendsetter."

A selection of Garbo photographs taken at Hollywood studios will also be up for grabs, in addition to autographed documents.

Some of the items to hit the auction block will first be exhibited at the Silverware Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, Ireland from September to November, as well as aboard the ocean liner Queen Mary 2 at the end of November.

Garbo was born in Sweden in 1905 and died in New York in 1990.
