NEW YORK (AFP) - Hollywood screen icon Lauren Bacall's carefully collected personal mementos fetched US$3.64 million (S$5 million) on the auction block, Bonhams said Wednesday.

There were hundreds of items up for grabs at the two-day sale - including housewares, furniture, fine art, jewelry and clothing - and all of them sold, the auction house said.

Bacall, one of Hollywood's great golden age actresses, died in August aged 89 in her nine-room home overlooking New York's Central Park, which is also on the market for US$26 million.

A hand-colored etching by naturalist John James Audubon "American White Pelican" fetched US$173,000, three times more than was expected, a statement from Bonhams said.

From the Humphrey Bogart years, before he died from cancer in 1957, was his black granite games table and a pair of silver candelabras from the couple's marital home in Los Angeles.

The table brought in US$26,250 - almost nine times the estimated value.

Buyers snapped up Albert Edward York's oil paintings "Landscape with trees" and "A country fence" together for US$161,000.

Another purchased a Henry Moore sculpture "Three-Quarter Mother and Child on Round Base," which sold for US$118,750, the auctioneers said.

Other items include Indian miniatures, a Japanese portable brass tea set and a marble table inscribed with "in the name of Allah" in Arabic calligraphy.

On the sparkly front, Bacall's Tiffany necklace sold for US$52,500 and another 18-karat gold bracelet went for US$50,000.

The proceeds will go to her three children.
