A rare David Gilhooly frog sandwich pendant-necklace is also in this sale. Handbags, evening bags, totes and related accessories come from Hermès, Bottega Veneta, Paloma Picasso, Ferragamo, Judith Leiber, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Tory Burch, Tumi, Bally, Nicole Miller, Icon and others.

Other offerings include a selection of couture clothing from Badgley-Mischka, Yves St. Laurent and St. John; several furs; designer hats and a few scarves; several pairs of shoes or cowboy boots; Western silver and leather belts; and a Native American beaded vest. Among the decorative items are Baccarat candleholders, jewelry boxes, malachite carvings, and silver Christmas ornaments.
