Dallas, TX, USA, August 27, 2022 — A second round of period antiques, fine art and personal items from the late Texas and Oklahoma oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens (1928-2019) will be auctioned in a two-day, online-only event slated for September 10th and 11th by J. Garrett Auctioneers, based in Dallas. It was almost exactly two years ago, in September 2020, that J. Garrett held the Part 1 auction.

Nearly 1,000 lots will come up for bid over the two days, with highlights that include rare signed ebeniste pieces, designer jewelry, important marble sculptures, sterling silver, fine rugs and memorabilia pertaining to the iconic financier. Also offered will be a wonderful collection of antiques from the German castle Schloss Hafenpreppach, plus many fine private consignments.

Some of Mr. Pickens’ personal items include cufflinks owned and worn by the oil tycoon, engraved “TBP” (Christie’s sold some in 2020 for double their estimates); Boone’s Tiffany money clip, engraved; and various souvenir lots and “spirit” items from Oklahoma State University, like his golf shoes, OSU letter jacket, signed books, engraved pens and desk items.

The sale is loaded with fine jewelry, including pieces by Cartier, Rolex, Breitling, Elizabeth Gage, Lalaounis, Robert Coin, Verdura, Schepps and Jean Mahie, plus rare Burmese rubies, vintage estate pieces and more. It’s important for bidders to note that a wire transfer or an in-person cashier’s check are the only acceptable methods of payment for all the jewelry items.

Fine watches will be led by an 18kt yellow gold Breitling Bentley chronograph watch that originally retailed for more than $50,000, weighing 310 grams total (est. $30,000-$35,000); and a Cartier Pasha chronograph watch with diamond band and bezel, stainless steel, with automatic movement and approximately 22cts of diamonds graded G-H and VS-2 (est. $18,000-$25,000).
