It's valued at $3,000-5,000.

Other lots include a portrait taken outside the house on Easter Sunday 1963 which is expected to make $1,000-2,000.

The auction house explains: "The Palm Beach residence remained in the Kennedy family for 62 years until it was sold in 1995 to Mr. and Mrs. John Castle, who purchased the home with a large selection of its contents, including the original Mizner furniture.

"The renovated 15,000 square foot estate recently sold for $31 million, but the Castle family retained ownership of the Kennedy articles, which have now been brought to auction�Ǫ

"The auction of the contents from the home will be presented in sessions that showcase property from important rooms within the house.

"Rooms that held groundbreaking press conferences. Rooms where pressing political decisions were made. Rooms where family gathered around one table.

"Rooms where legendary figures found rest."

We have this amazing Kennedy Christmas photograph signed by the whole family for sale.
