Christie's catalog of the "Magnificent Jewels from the Collection of Ellen Barkin". This is a linen covered hard bound catalog with a gold dust jacket. This one fo the most important jewel collections of the century, and includes the largest collection of JAR pieces ever displayed, let alone offered at auction. All are items collected by Ms. Barkin during her marriage to billionaire Ron Pearlman. The catalog also features Ms. Barkin wearing some of her iconic pieces in fashion and red carpet photographs as well as photographs of her with other celebrities such as George Clooney. The dust jacket does show some marks sustained when mailed to me, such as seen in the photo, but the hardbound catalog itself is in excellent condition. Note that this item as sent to me by Francois Curiel, President of Christie's Europe, and that his stationary is included.
After deciding to unload the jewels she accumulated during her six-year marriage to billionaire Ron Perelman that ended this winter, Ellen Barkin sold off more than 100 pieces at Christie's New York on Tuesday
