The sale will be held to benefit the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund, which helps girls gain education in South Africa. Among the lead lots will be a set of Louis XV upholstered armchairs, which are expected to make between $20,000 and $40,000, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.

The sale is expected to generate strong attention from the collecting world, with local columnist Richard Mineards telling Page Six that it will be "a major feeding frenzy…like the Jackie O Sotheby's auction".

Paul Fraser Collectibles has a fine selection of antique English furniture for sale.
