Sale Description

This week we have a great estate sale in Cheviot Hills - This wonderful old Spanish Revival Mansion is chock full of fantastic treasures with something for everyone! This was the estate of a Renown Los Angeles Attorney and his Much Loved French Teacher Wife who were not only absolute Francophiles but married for 40 years! The couple moved into this home in 1977 and it was the scene of hundreds of parties, weddings and spectacular events - even hosting state senators and French consulates!

For security reasons we are going to refer this couple as the Mister and Missus in the following background prepared by the sister of the Missus...

The Mister was a nationally prominent criminal attorney, specializing in prison and parole law and was a practicing attorney in the State of California for over 44 years. He began his career as a legislative assistant to Assemblyman Alan Sieroty. And over time, became the leading pioneer and expert in the field of prisoner's and parolee's rights. His legacy is one of constitutional protections for men and women in the prison system through his appellate work in the Court of Appeal and the California Supreme Court. He also championed the cause of abolishing the death penalty. The Mister's practice was based in Beverly Hills and he taught at UCLA Law School.

The Missus was a High School French Teacher with L.A. Unified for over 30 years, where she devoted herself to the economically disadvantaged population and saw many of her students go on to college and successful careers. She changed lives. She also held a doctorate in French Literature from UCLA, specializing in the film and novels of Marcel Pagnol. They owned an apartment on the Rue St Charles in Paris, where they spent many months of each year, and shopped throughout France for many of the knick knacks and treasures.

The Missus loved everything French……wine, movies, Baccarat crystal, French china, books, art, literature, music, clothes, and theatre. Her house is full of her memorabilia from her extensive travels in France and French colonies such as Martinique and Tahiti. Some of the large pieces of furniture are from the Mister’s law office…leather and mahogany partner’s desk and bookshelves that held his law library. They entertained often, and much of their china, serving pieces, and glassware are on view. Much of it has a French theme.

The Missus' hippo collection began with the Missus' teaching. She ran a French-only classroom, and if the students spoke English, they had to put a penny in a hippo piggy bank she had. The lore around the hippo grew, and her students started giving her hippos. Over the years, she collected thousands, all gifts from friends, family and former students. The hippo was her “spirit animal.” We have several of these hippos in the estate!

Come join us this weekend and share in this amazing couple's lifetime treasures! We have an immense library of French, Legal, and other texts and published items - French and American Music, Movies, and other Media...along with a spectacularly eclectic collection of antiques, furnishings, art, decorative and functional items, and so much more!
