Christie's interest in property consigned for sale.
Christie's generally offers property consigned by others for sale at public auction. From time to time, lots are offered which Christie's International Plc or one of it's subsidiary companies owns in whole or in part. Each such lot is offered subject to a reserve. This is such a lot
The following fourteen lots were originally offered in the October 27-28, 1999 Christie's (New York) auction titled "The Personal Property of Marilyn Monroe;" Sale 9216. Though all items sold, they were never retrieved and therefore have been in the possession of Christie's ever since. The original lot numbers and page numbers from that catalogue will be noted at the end of each description under 'Provenance.'
