Preview: The Incredible Jewelry, Furniture, and Art Available at Bunny Mellon’s Sotheby’s Auction

By

The design world is in a tizzy right now: Rachel “Bunny” Mellon’s collection will be up for grabs at Sotheby’s beginning November 10 with her “Masterworks,” and continuing November 20 to 23, with over 2,000 items of furniture, silver, linens, and decorations, mostly from her storied estate, Oak Spring Farm, in Upperville, Virginia. Leafing through the four-volume catalogue is a treat, and the next best thing if you can’t afford to bid on her treasures.
