It’s all included, even the bed where he died. The contents of Michael Jackson last home, at 100 N. Carolwood in Holmby Hills, will be sold at a Los Angeles auction. Everything from the armoire on which he tacked a note to himself (“TRAIN, perfections, March April. FULL OUT May”) to a kitchen blackboard on which a child’s scrawl reads “I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free” will be offered at the December 17th sale. Julien’s expects the event to bring $400,000-$600,000, an estimate the auction house admits may be conservative “because of the circumstances.”
Fans will have a shot at acquiring Jackson’s desks, sofas, silverware, candles and a painting by Maurice Utrillo, as well as one of Jackson, clad in armor and mounted on a horse. There are life-size Peter Pan characters and statues of children at play, and much, much more: ornate furniture, trinkets, pinball games, video machines, an air hockey machine, and a ice cream vendor’s bicycle. It will all be on display at Julien’s Beverly Hills gallery from December 12-17.
