The online sale component of Betsy Bloomingdale: Life and Style provides a keyhole look into both aspects of the icon’s world. Betsy Bloomingdale’s “Life” is explored through William Haines lamps and outdoor furniture, as well as traditional Georgian furniture and fine art from the Holmby Hills house. The legendary hostess’s entertaining traditions are represented by chinoserie porcelain figurines and whimsical dinner services, while her long standing “First Friendship” with President and Mrs. Reagan is commemorated through iconic porcelain, personal effects and signed books. Betsy Bloomingdale’s “Style” comes to life through her gowns, jewelry and themed style capsules combining her handbags, scarves and costume jewelry.
