Bergman's Belongings Auctioned in 337 Lots -- INCREDIBLE Stuff

In Stockholm, an auction of personal belongings from the estate of the great director Ingmar Bergman has just ended. The items ranged from parts of his daily life—his writing desk and wastepaper basket—to the chess set used in The Seventh Seal.

Bukowskis, the Swedish auction house operating the event, posted on Twitter twenty-two hours ago:

"The Ingmar Bergman auction is now over and 337 very special lots have new lucky owners. Thank you all."

The 337 lots for sale were auctioned for a total of 18 million Swedish kronor (approximately $2.6 million). The famous Irving Penn portrait, above, fetched 520,000 SEK ($74,200), while the Golden Globe statuette the filmmaker won for Autumn Sonata brought 48,000 SEK ($6,800). The most prized items were the Seventh Seal chess set and a wooden model of the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Each sold for 1 million SEK (about $140,000).
Check out the link for photographs, including a shot of that unreal chess set and an awesome shot of Bergman and JAWS.

I noticed you hadn't had any replies so I'm using my first post to thank you for this. I hadn't heard about it and it was interesting. I especially liked the picture of Bergman with Bruce the shark.

(I just discovered this forum, so, hi everyone)

Always fun to see things that give a glimpse "behind the scenes." Loved the Jaws pic.
