Items from the estate of legendary comic and moviemaker Jerry Lewis will be up for auction at Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip later this month. Lewis, a long-time Las Vegas resident, died in August at age 91.
Julien’s Auctions will conduct the sale June 22. Sessions will begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. local time. It’s free to attend and browse items from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through June 22. Admission is free with bidders required to register in advance or at the door.
Among the items being auctioned are watches from the Lewis’s collection, including a gold Cartier watch from the Baignoire collection that is expected to garner an estimated $25,000 to $35,000.
Also included are timepieces given to Lewis by Sammy Davis Jr. (expected to sell for $6,000 to $8,000) and his longtime radio, TV and movie partner, Dean Martin ($4,000 to $6,000). The 14-karat gold LeCoultre watch from Martin is inscribed with the words on three lines: “Jerry My Buddy and Pal, I Love You, Dino”
From his film and theater work, are collections of custom false teeth and black-rimmed glasses expected to bring $2,000 to $4,000 each.
