"Elizabeth Taylor was a fan of Cunard and sailed frequently on our ships," Josh Leibowitz, Senior Vice President of Cunard North America, shared in a press release. So naturally, giving Cunard guests an exclusive preview into the life of Elizabeth Taylor—her glamour, beauty, and style—and the opportunity to bid on items ahead of the general auction in December was a given.

Among the items available for auction is a gilt-bronze lamp featuring American dancer Loie Fuller (circa 1901), at the Folies-Bergère in Paris, which is estimated to go for $15,000 to $20,000. Other fine and decorative art and household items from her homes around the world will also be available, along with jewelry, clothes, and wigs.
