Reminds me a little of the last scene in "Citizen Kane" - we're talking stuff like chandeliers, fireplace mantels, and wall lamps (no sleds so far). Several antique dealers had a chance to tour the place, reports the LAT, and apparently items have been bought and removed.
The grand foyer fixture, for example, is a 19th century Louis XV-style gilt bronze and Baccarat crystal chandelier from Paris. Measuring nearly 7 feet by 4.5 feet, the piece is being taken apart, rewired, cleaned, readjusted and rehung. "It's a $10,000 investment just in order to get it ready for sale," said [dealer Claudio] Boltiansky. Anticipating a price in "the low six-figure range," the antiques dealer will not discuss exact figures until after the sales and then only with buyer permission.
Heiress Petra Ecclestone bought the 56,500-square-foot mansion from Candy Spelling for the discount price of $85 million, and she obviously doesn't have the same taste as the Spellings.
