Eclectic and artful pieces from a Hollywood star.
More than 300 items are for sale in an auction from the personal collection of actor, director and screenwriter David Arquette. From bona fide hippie chairs bought in Haight Ashbury in the sixties, to an antique canopy bed from London, a vintage jukebox, and a statue of Borden Dairy Company’s Elsie the Cow, the selection here is as eclectic and impressive as Arquette’s career.
King Size Oak Canopy Bed
The Arquettes bought this one hundred-year-old canopy bed at an antique store in London. “We added fabric to the canopy because we were inspired by Downton Abbey," he notes. “It has a very special feel.”
Electric Advertising Statue of Elsie The Cow
This life-sized version of the cartoon character that was developed as a mascot for the Borden Dairy company, Elsie the Cow plugs in and chews as if she has a mouth full of grass. “She is certainly a crowd pleaser,” says Arquette, “And a really cool art piece.”
Vintage Seeburg Select-O-Matic 100 Jukebox
This coin-operated jukebox holds up to fifty 7" 45rpm records, or one hundred songs. “This piece lived at my production company, Coquette for many years. Through Coquette we made shows like Dirt and Cougartown, and recently Celebrity Name Game. The jukebox was always an office favorite.”
Hand-Painted Hippie Chairs
“These hippie chairs are bona fide from the 1960s, bought in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood,” says Arquette, of this pair of hand-painted pine chairs rendered as flower children.
