T. Gordon Little Redux

Auction catalogues are a wealth of information. Obviously, they are an invaluable resource for both budding and seasoned collectors. But what I find intriguing is that oftentimes interior photos are included alongside the lot photos. So, for example, if an estate is being auctioned off, photos showing the lots in situ are included. It's like taking a peek behind closed doors to see how somebody lived.

I recently purchased a 2005 Christie's catalogue that included the estate of the late Atlanta designer T. Gordon Little. You might remember that I posted photos of his former apartment on my blog a few months ago. The photos seen below show Little's last apartment as it appeared at the time of his death. If the lots that were up for auction weren't tempting enough, then surely the photos of Little's gorgeous apartment helped to entice potential bidders. They certainly would have done so for me.

  1. It's all gorgeous--but the wall paper in the guest bedroom is fantastic. Have a great week. Mary
