Julien's Auctions has announced its upcoming auction, Property From The Collection of Ronnie and Jo Wood, featuring items belonging to the longtime Rolling Stones guitarist.
The auction, which will include fine and decorative art, antiques, music memorabilia and personal property, will take place in October in Beverly Hills (Check out the times, dates and location below).
The Wood collection features memorabilia from the Rolling Stones, Faces and Wood’s solo career as a musician and an artist, spanning more than four decades. Items include stage-worn leather jackets and clothing, plus two Ronnie Wood custom-painted Fender Stratocasters, one with the body depicting a Stones recording session (valued at $4,000 to $8,000).
For Stones collectors, there's tour clothing, backstage passes and tour ephemera from various tours of the 1990s and 2000s, collectible Rolling Stones books, guitar picks, vinyl record albums and other memorabilia that Jo collected over the years. Other highlights include a Mick Jagger handwritten note to Wood ($200 to $400), a twice-signed Mick Jagger Rolling Stones poster ($400 to $600) and a cardboard cutout in the form of a guitar body inscribed "To Ronnie from Keith,” describing a guitar Richards commissioned for Wood as a Christmas gift ($200 to $300).
Portraits of Richards, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan are among some of the artwork offered ($800 to $1,200 each).
