Auction house Bonhams announced the sale, which includes a pair of the actor’s glasses. The sale will be held March 2, 2022.

Items in the sale include a Rolex, movie posters, a collection of autographs, and some of Caine’s personal artwork by artists like Marc Chagall and LS Lowry.

Bonhams told CNN, “Sir Michael Caine has an appeal that defies any age demographic or nationality, his films are part of 20th-century history and whoever the successful bidders are, they will own a piece of that history, an item with unrivaled provenance.”

In their announcement, Bonhams said Caine and his wife are downsizing, and that is why they are offering some of their treasures up for auction. “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,” Michael Caine told Bonhams.

The auction even includes a director’s chair from the 1971 film “Get Carter,” which Michael Caine starred in, CNN reported.
