Hollywood screen icon Lauren Bacall's carefully collected personal mementos fetched $3.64 million on the auction block, Bonhams said.
There were hundreds of items up for grabs at the two-day sale -- including housewares, furniture, fine art, jewelry and clothing -- and all of them sold, the auction house said on Wednesday.  
Bacall, one of Hollywood's great golden age actresses, died in August aged 89 in her nine-room home overlooking New York's Central Park, which is also on the market for $26 million.
A hand-colored etching by naturalist John James Audubon "American White Pelican" fetched $173,000, three times more than was expected, a statement from Bonhams said.
From the Humphrey Bogart years, before he died from cancer in 1957, was his black granite games table and a pair of silver candelabras from the couple's marital home in Los Angeles.
The table brought in $26,250 -- almost nine times the estimated value.
Buyers snapped up Albert Edward York's oil paintings "Landscape with trees" and "A country fence" together for $161,000.
Another purchased a Henry Moore sculpture "Three-Quarter Mother and Child on Round Base," which sold for $118,750, the auctioneers said.
Other items include Indian miniatures, a Japanese portable brass tea set and a marble table inscribed with "in the name of Allah" in Arabic calligraphy.
On the sparkly front, Bacall's Tiffany necklace sold for $52,500 and another 18-karat gold bracelet went for $50,000.
The proceeds will go to her three children.
