The estate of Betty White, including memorabilia from the show “The Golden Girls,” her wedding band from her marriage to Allen Ludden and a gold watch from her mother, is going up for auction in September.
The collection of more than 1,500 items, which also includes White’s awards, scripts, wardrobes, jewelry and artwork, will hit the auction block at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, California, from Sept. 23 to 25.
Before they go up for auction, the items will be exhibited in Santiago, Chile, and Kildrae, Ireland, and at Julien’s Auctions.
White, whose charm and deadpan comedic delivery earned her an eight-decade career and the title of America’s most trusted celebrity, died at age 99 on Dec. 31.
“Betty White was a beloved national treasure and a cross generational icon who made us laugh for eighty years with her illustrious work on film, radio and television classics,” Darren Julien, the president and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, said in a statement.
“We are honored to work with her Estate in this exclusive presentation of these precious artifacts and personal mementos from her storied life and career which will be offered for the first time at auction to the public, museum curators and her legions of fans worldwide.”
Certified by Guinness World Records as having the longest-running career of any female television entertainer, White got her start in showbiz sometime in 1939 on a television show.
Over the decades, White endeared herself to generations with a series of memorable roles, including roles on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (1973-77), “The Golden Girls” (1985-92) and “Hot in Cleveland” (2010-15).
White won eight prime-time and daytime Emmy awards and a Grammy Award for best spoken word album for “If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won’t).” She was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — right next to Ludden’s.
