This Is Your Chance to Own a Tiffany’s Dog Bowl That Once Belonged to Joan Rivers

If you’ve seen the documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, you’ll be familiar with the famous comedian’s distinctive taste in home decor. “This is how Marie Antoinette would’ve lived if she’d had money,” Rivers cracks at one point in the footage. Well, here’s your chance to get some of that style for yourself.


The Guardian reports that Christie’s will be auctioning more than 200 pieces from Rivers’ Manhattan penthouse in June. The auction house promises an array that “encompass the breadth of the late entertainer’s exceptional and eclectic taste, including decorative arts, paintings, fine French furniture and Fabergé,” plus jewelry and Bob Mackie costumes available for bidding online, in addition to the live proceedings. Part of the money will go to God’s Love We Deliver and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Most importantly, the Guardian notes that the auction will include “a custom engraved Tiffany’s water bowl previously used by Rivers’ dog Spike.”

Franky, how have you been living without a custom engraved Tiffany’s water bowl this long?

I will legally change my name to Spike and I will sell all my earthly possessions and the bowl will be mine.
