Elton John is auctioning the contents of his Atlanta home

The star is teaming up with Christie’s to sell 900 items from his former Atlanta home, with experts believing the items’ value will add up to a cool $10 million.

Less than a year after selling his 13,332 square-foot Atlanta home for just over $7 million, singer Sir Elton John is teaming up with British auction house Christie’s to auction off its contents.

As the first auction of Sir Elton’s possessions in 21 years, The Collection of Sir Elton John: Goodbye Peachtree Road has lit up the internet, as well as made many collectors eager to see what will be on sale.

The 900 treasures being put up for auction include dinnerware, furniture, clothes, prints, art, jewellery, musical instruments, accessories, and, needless to say, eyewear. Of course, many of the items are as extra as you’d imagine, and the prices reflect this: with estimates starting from ‘as little’ as  $1,000-$1,500 for a David Lachapelle neon sign that reads ‘Horny?!’, and going up to $1 million and $1.5 million for Banksy’s Flower Thrower Triptych.

Other noteworthy treasures that will be on sale are a pair of silver leather boots custom-made for Sir Elton; a Yamaha Grand Piano; the iconic, 1950s Jean Patchett Vogue portrait by Irving Penn; an 18th-century costume designed by British costume designer, Sandy Powell; a custom Damien Hirst; Versace shirts from the early 90s; and a limited edition, asymmetrical Cartier watch. 

The auction will take place in New York on February 21, with public viewing open from February 9. During the auction, there will also be a pop-up store of Sir Elton’s vinyl, accessories, apparel, and signature eyewear.
