Auction of Bunny Mellon's Jewelry and Home Items Increase Estate Sale Total

AntiquesAs I have previously discussed, the auction of  artwork from the collection of Rachel 'Bunny' Mellon exceeded expectations by bringing in $158.7 million from 43 pieces by famous artists.  In a second auction that featured items from Mellon's estate that were from her U.S., Europe, and Caribbean homes again exceeded the expected results by  bringing in $14.3 million. In total, Mellon's estate sale brought in $218.1 million through three separate auctions.
