Beatles memorabilia goes on sale
Thursday 29 November 2012
A collection of Beatles memorabilia owned by George Harrison's family is expected to sell for six figures at auction next month.
It includes a leather jacket he bought during the band's stint in Hamburg which he wore on stage in Germany and at the Cavern Club.
It is expected to sell for around £120,000 at the sale at Bonham's in London on December 12.
Also in the collection, which was given by Harrison to his brother, Harry, and other relatives are a pair of custom-made boots which could sell for around £15,000.
A guitar owned by fellow Beatle Sir Paul McCartney in the 1950s will also be sold with an estimated price of £30,000.
Harrison, who died in 2001, wrote some of the band's most enduring songs including Something and Here Comes The Sun.
He also worked as a film producer, helped back Monty Python's Life of Brian and through his company Handmade Films was responsible for The Long Good Friday, Time Bandits and Mona Lisa.
