Garbo Auction (14-15 Dec 2012)

Post by Ann Harding »

I started looking through this amazing catalogue and couldn't stop. It contains the Garbo estate: objects, clothes, shoes, etc. that are sold next month. I found the clothes particularly fascinating. She seemed to love turquoise and had many dresses of that colour. Browse through the catalogue, you won't be disappointed:

This was very interesting, Christine. I am surprised that Garbo favored pink so much in her personal dress and accessories which were generally so simple and classic. I wonder if the prices being asked for these everyday objects will bring what is asked? There is an interesting account of the auction here too:
