Lauren Bacall's Needlepoint Pillows and Antiques

Thanks to Judy B's mention on Facebook, I learned that Lauren Bacall's things were auctioned off by Bonham's in London March 31st. You can glimpse a needlepoint pillow and rug here.

I rummaged through the auction catalogue and found several antiques.

There are pillows, too.  They sold for $1500 USD as one lot.  I don't think these were things she stitched else I think that would be noted as provenance.  The rest of the auction is for art, furnishings, knickknacks, a few dresses and simple jewelry.  All classics, but not needlepoint.
