“It’s going to be quite a wrench to part with so many treasured parts of my life and career, but it’s the right time to be moving on. I hope these mementoes will give their new owners as much pleasure as they have given us,” Caine said.
Highlights from the sale include Caine’s Rolex wristwatch, a portrait of the actor by John Bratby, original movie posters from Zulu and Alfie, a director’s chair and his spectacles, alongside other mementos such as autographed pages. Estimates range from £500-50,000.
