A collection of Betty White’s personal items, including her original director’s chair from The golden girls set and an autographed copy of the show’s pilot script, are set to be auctioned.
The collection, which includes fine jewelry, awards and pieces from White’s wardrobe, is set to go on exhibitions around the world before going up for auction in September.
The iconic American actress and comedian, known for her charm, wit and sharpness, died in December, just weeks before her 100th birthday.
“Betty White was a beloved national treasure and cross-generational icon who made us laugh for eighty years with her illustrious work on classics of film, radio and television such as The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The golden girls“said Darren Julien, President and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, in a press release.
Throughout his decades-long career, White has produced Life with Elizabeth and The Betty White Show. She then starred as Rose Nylund in The golden girls before appearing in Proposal and Hot in Cleveland.
The auction includes a Sunset Gower Studios plaque where the Daddy’s Girls was shot, and a “large number” of scripts for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The golden girls and Hot in Cleveland.
White’s Emmy Award Nomination Certificates for The golden girls, Saturday Night Live and Hot in Cleveland are also part of the auction items. The dress White wore to the Emmys in 1989 will also be included.
