Antique furniture, sculptures and works of art which belonged to Michael Jackson, will be at auction 17th December in the United States. The last days of the megastar were spent at Holmby Hills mansion, which he shared with his children Prince, Blanket and Paris. The home where he lived for six months until his death on 25th June 2009, is to be sold separately.
Among the items for sale at auction is the queen sized bed which Jackson slept, and died in. Hundreds of other items from the pop stars home will be auctioned, including a message on a kitchen chalkboard, from one of his children. The message reads:
“I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free.”
The chalkboard, complete with message is thought to be worth more than $400. Jackson surrounded himself with fine antiques and collectible items, which will all be up for auction. It may not be possible to purchase antiques from the home of Michael Jackson in the UK, but you will discover fine antique furniture, like antique dining chairs in Preston .
The president of Julien’s Auctions, Darren Julien said that the intention was to preserve the history of Jackson’s furniture and paintings, which he was surrounded by while preparing for his planned concerts.
During the trial, photos of Jackson’s bedroom were shown, but the team at Jackson’s home knew this room as the “medication room”. An adjoining room was where Michael sought inner peace, writing on a mirror in the room:
“TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May”
His first concert was scheduled for July.
