The items range from the pricey to the affordable. On the high end, there’s some signed artworks by Andy Warhol, estimated to fetch up to $15,000 each, a photo collage by Wallace Berman that’s estimated at $30,000-50,000. Less expensive but as important to Elaine’s loyalists: the vintage cash register that sat behind the bar, estimated at $400-600.
“Elaine lived a long, happy and prosperous life,” Diane Becker said in a statement. Becker, Elaine’s restaurant manager, inherited Kaufman’s estate. “I feel this is the best – and frankly only – way I know to share Elaine with those she cared about most – her Elaine’s family.”READ MORE: Primary Election Day Guide For Voters In New York
