A Tiffany Hearts and Vines Favrile Vase from the Estate of Elizabeth Taylor

On December 16, Christie's New York will be auctioning off items from the estate of Elizabeth Taylor. One of my favorite is this Louis Comfort Tiffany blue favrile glass vase decorated in the hearts and vines pattern. My guess is that such a beautiful art nouveau vase will benefit from its association with the actress's estate and sell for a price way above the high estimate.
