Sir Michael Caine Announces Auction of Some 'Treasured Possessions' as He and Wife Downsize

Sir Michael Caine and his wife Lady Caine have announced an auction of some of their most "treasured" and noteworthy possessions, according to a Bonhams press release
The auction, which will take place at Bonhams in London on March 2, includes numerous items that will surely appeal to movie buffs. Among them are a large Italian cinema poster for his 1964 film Zulu, which is expected to go for £1,500-£2,000 ($2,037-$2,716), and a poster for his 1966 film Alfie, which is listed at £500-£800 ($679-$1,086). 
There is also an impressive collection of autographs acquired at the 1970 Tony Awards, featuring the signatures of Caine, Julie Andrews, Mia Farrow, Barbra Streisand, James Stewart, and Maggie Smith. The collection is estimated to go for £1,000-1,500 ($1,358-$2,037).
Caine is even auctioning off his own personal Rolex watch (estimate: £8,000-£12,000; ($10,870-$16,300) and a portrait of him by the artist Lincoln Townley, which is expected to fetch in the region of £10,000-£15,000 ($13,580-$20,370). All proceeds from the portrait will go to children's charity the NSPCC.
The Bonhams press release notes that the auction reflects Caine's intention to start "taking life at a more leisurely pace" as he and Lady Caine "downsize." Last year, the actor dismissed reports that at 88, he has retired from acting.
"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," the actor said in the press release. "I hope these mementos will give their new owners as much pleasure as they have given us."
