Furniture, artwork and knickknacks from the homes of President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis will be auctioned in February, Sotheby's announced Tuesday.
The auction, to be held Feb. 15-17, is more modest than a 1996 Kennedy auction at Sotheby's that brought in $34.5 million, including $2.5 million for an engagement ring from Aristotle Onassis. The latest auction features some 600 lots, including art and books.
Many items have presale estimates as low as $200, though the Kennedy mystique could drive prices up.
The property was consigned by Caroline Kennedy, who in an introduction to the catalog says a portion of the auction proceeds will go to the library foundation and other charities.
