Abell Jewelry Auction
The French Constitution of 1848 ushered in a new standard of luxury in France. Louis-François Cartier experimented with different materials under the new government, as many jewelers did.

Items from the Estate of Penny Marshall
A collection of one-of-a-kind items from the estate of Penny Marshall PDT. The online-only auction features an impressive selection of rare American lighting and personal items from the late actress, director, and producer's celebrated Los Angeles estate. For decades, Marshall collected art, memorabilia, and collectibles that reflected her interests, tastes, and lifestyle. Marsha Reiner's daughter Tracy Reiner said the family respected her mother's wishes to entrust many of her belongings to museums, universities, sports organizations, and loved ones. Reiner said that this auction is very important to her family as it features some of her most beautiful, fun, and interesting items, including an extensive collection of American folk art and lamps." "My mother was often drawn to people and things that went unnoticed." It was important to her that others remember each artist's work and era, so she championed each collection into some form of recognition. In my mom's collections, and in those of her friend Carrie Fisher, we revered the unseen artists."
