The online auction of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller includes a selection of works of art and decorations and offers a unique opportunity to understand the lifestyle of this famous couple in all of its varied aspects. Ranging from Jewelry and Cufflinks to Furniture and Lighting the sale encompasses the world of the Collectors. Their love of entertaining is illustrated in the Silver and Porcelain used by them on a daily basis. David’s mother, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, had a love of Japan that is reflected in the group of Japanese porcelain she passed onto her son, while the large selection of lighting, furniture and rugs aptly demonstrates a love of comfort.
With prices ranging from $100 to $10,000 there is something for everybody including The Rockefeller Money Clip in gold, color lithographs by Manet, Vuillard and Signac, a tea pot by Hester Bateman, a portrait by Ammi Phillips and a Spode apple green dessert service. A selection that allows everyone to live like a Rockefeller!
