Joan Rivers fans are getting the chance to live like the legendary comedian – by owning some of her prized possessions from her Manhattan penthouse.

Christie’s is putting up more than 200 of Rivers’ personal items up for auction this June, with items ranging from $500 to $200,000.

Some of the items going on the block include part of her famous jewelry collection, a Tiffany water bowl engraved with Spike, the name of her Yorkshire Terrier (valued at $500–$800) and the Edouard Vuillard painting “Dans L’Atelier,” (painted circa 1915 with an estimated value of $120,000–$180,000).

A live auction takes place June 22 in New York, with an online auction being held June 16–23. A portions of the proceeds will benefit the charities God’s Love We Deliver and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

“My mother’s legacy as a much loved comedienne and philanthropist will be commemorated in this collaboration with Christie’s and her generosity to charitable causes is something I will continue to honor,” Rivers’ daughter Melissa Rivers said in a statement.
