An auction of 200 items that once filled the home of jazz singer and actress Lena Horne sold Wednesday for $316,000, more than double the highest pre-sale estimate.

The late star’s belongings from her Manhattan apartment were auctioned at Doyle New York. They epitomized her sophisticated taste: French-style furnishing, elegant costumes, jewelry and fine art.

A sequined cardigan evening coat sold for $1,125, while a small Louis Vuitton trunk with stickers inscribed Lena Horne Hayton was sold for $20,000 — far above its pre-sales estimate of $500 to $700. And a soft leather vanity case inscribed LH was estimated at $200 to $400 sold for $6,250. Check out prices paid for the rest of the lot from Yahoo News
