NEW YORK: Some 1,500 props from the award-winning TV series Mad Men are set to go under the hammer in a June 1 to 15 auction, organizers said.
The AMC network show set in a 1960s Madison Avenue advertisement firm was known for its obsessive attention to detail in clothing and decor.
Since the show ended production in July 2014, Ellen Freund, its award winning prop curator, was assigned to organize the items, which will be put under the hammer by ScreenBid, a company specialized in auctions of Hollywood-related items.
Show props to be auctioned include many belonging to the suave Don Draper (actor Jon Hamm), the show’s principal star, such as his hat, wallet, ties and cuff links.
The largest item is a 1965 red Imperial Crown Chrysler convertible that Draper owned.
ScreenBid did not provide any pre-sale estimates, unlike most auction houses, though the convertible was earlier estimated to be worth $39,500.
