Objets Divers


Lot 89001A Marilyn Monroe Star-Shaped Light Fixture, 1962.
Triangular-shaped panels made of opaque white glass, solidified within a metal frame, one portion opens to reveal the socket for a light bulb, electrical cord still attached but is cut so piece is not in working condition; evidently one of the many items Monroe famously purchased down in Mexico to furnish her new Spanish-style home in Brentwood; light fixture was later purchased by the current owner in 1964 directly from Dr. Gilbert Nunez who bought Monroe's house after her death; included with a letter from the current owner stating in part that the Nunez family told her that "Marilyn had this piece hanging in the corner of one of the rooms." (Please note this fixture needs re-wiring and its metal frame is rusted due to age.)
12" x 12" x 12"
The grainy color snapshot showing this light fixture in Monroe's home is believed to have been taken by Eunice Murray [Monroe's weird housekeeper] who was helping the star with purchases for the home and with interior decoration.

Lot 89002 - A Marilyn Monroe Decorative Rustic Chest, 1962.
Smallish in size (to set atop a table), made of wood with a metal overlay, adorned on entire surface with rows of blue, green, and red marbles inspersed with brass studs, brass ring on top front lid, four small pegs on bottom; evidently one of the many items Monroe famously purchased down in Mexico to furnish her new Spanish-style home in Brentwood; chest was later purchased by the current owner in 1964 directly from Dr. Gilbert Nunez who bought Monroe's house after her death; included with a letter from the current owner stating in part that the Nunez family told her this piece was "found in Marilyn's bedroom and she kept her jewelry in it." (Please note this piece is somewhat rusted due to age.)
6" x 18" x 9" x 10" 

lot89002 


 Lot 89003 -A Marilyn Monroe-Related Rustic Standing Candlestick, 1962.
Made of wood, hand-carved, in two parts that affix together at the center, one metal spike in top center for candle placement; purchased by the Nunez family after they bought Marilyn's house and on display in Marilyn's house (albeit after her death) until they sold this piece to the current owner sometime in the mid-1960s. To be clear, Marilyn Monroe never owned this piece, but it does have the distinction of "living" in her house for a few years in the 1960s! (Please note there are numerous natural cracks in the wood and there is candle wax on all sides.)
44" x 8" x 7"

Lot 89004 A Marilyn Monroe Terracotta Planter / Vase, 1962.
Oversized, with two handles on either side, hand-painted in colorful shades in a Spanish-style design; evidently one of the many items Monroe famously purchased down in Mexico to furnish her new Spanish-style home in Brentwood; vase was later purchased by the current owner in 1964 directly from Dr. Gilbert Nunez who bought Monroe's house after her death; included with a letter from the current owner stating in part that the Nunez family told her this piece was "left in the backyard near the swimming pool." (Please note there are a number of minor paint chips around the bottom of the vase due to age and wear.)

Lot 809: MARILYN MONROE OVERCOAT
 A Marilyn Monroe fawn colored silk overcoat with black velvet collar detail and apricot satin lining. Seven-button closure and two exterior pockets. No size or maker’s label present. Fits size 8 dress form.
Monroe’s affection for this coat is documented by many photos of her wearing it during the years 1956-1959. Some have deemed it “Marilyn’s Favorite Coat.” As a newlywed, she modeled the coat in an iconic June 30, 1956, road trip and photoshoot with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller, to his country home in Roxbury, Connecticut. Accompanying the couple in Miller’s black ’56 T-Bird was Marilyn Monroe Productions business associate and favored photographer, Milton Greene. Other extant photos include Monroe and Miller in June 26, 1959 as they departed New York’s Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City after Monroe's hospitalization for gynecological surgery.
This coat has been on continuous exhibit since 2010 at owner’s “Marshhaven” residence, Heritage Plantation, Pawleys Island, SC. The coat has been climate and UV protected.

Lot 712: EARL MORAN (AMERICAN, 1893-1984) MARILYN MONROE NUDE
 An oil on canvas painting of Marilyn Monroe reclining nude in bed. Signed middle right “Earl Moran.”
Earl Moran was a prominent pin-up artist during the 1930s and 1940s with a stylish flair that helped sell millions of calendars for publishers Brown & Bigelow. In 1946, Moran had the good fortune of meeting an aspiring model named Norma Jeane Dougherty, soon to become famous as Marilyn Monroe. Dozens of photographs were taken of Monroe in various poses, which Moran then used to paint seductive nudes in oil and pastel, portraying Monroe as a blonde, a redhead, and even as a brunette. The painting shown here was purchased by the consignor's wife directly from Moran after they met him at the Laguna Art Festival. The consignor fondly recalls how Moran explained to them that the model for the painting was a young woman named Norma Jeane Dougherty.
Canvas, 23 3/4 by 48 inches; 32 by 56 inches, framed

Lot 738: MARILYN MONROE CAST HAND AND FOOT PRINTS
 An acrylic cast of Marilyn Monroe's hand and foot prints from Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Monroe originally immortalized her hand and foot prints at the theatre in June 1953. This cast, made of casting grade silicone, was part of a project from the late 1970s that was supposed to preserve the prints but also was going to be used to create a limited number of the molds for sale. That project never reached fruition, and this is the only known cast prepared this way. On one side the cast looks like the original; the back shows the cast in negative relief.
Approximately 40 by 36 inches

When he taught at the school himself, he used these X-rays to ensure that students were paying attention. Monroe was said to have known about the X-rays and their use, about which she said, "Isn't that sweet." Monroe's hospital visit was said to be for her chronic endometriosis, or as her doctor's described it, "For correction of a female disorder she has suffered for years." Monroe was in the hospital for several days and was filmed by the press when she left the hospital.
