Christie’s to sell The Private Collection of President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan

Christie's announces it has been entrusted with the sale of The Private Collection of President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan, the celebrated 40th President and First Lady of the United States. This landmark auction is slated for September 2016 to coincide with Christie’s Americana Week sales series in New York.  Per the Reagans’ wishes, proceeds from the auction are designated for The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute.

The sale encompasses furniture, decorative works of art, books, memorabilia, jewelry, paintings, sculpture, drawings and prints from President and Mrs. Reagan’s home in Los Angeles, California. The collection includes American, English, and Chinese furnishings selected for the home’s beautifully appointed Ted Graber-designed interiors, paying homage to the William Haines ‘Hollywood Regency’ style. The collection will be sold in a sequence of live and online auctions. Estimates on individual items range from $1,000 to $50,000, and the sales are expected to realize in excess of $2 million total.

Brook Hazelton, President of Christie’s Americas, noted: “Christie’s is honored to be entrusted with this prestigious collection which offers unprecedented insight into the private lives of President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan.  Each object offers a ‘through the keyhole’ experience revealing as-yet untold stories of two of the 20th century’s most celebrated public figures.”
