Salvator Mundi has sent auctions into overdrive, as items continue to smash their guide prices.

Robby the Robot, mentioned in last week’s piece, broke the record sale price for movie memorabilia. Likewise, a 1931 Dracula print became the most expensive movie poster in history. Meanwhile, a gold leaf cut from the crown of Napolean Bonaparte went for six times its estimate.

As rising sale prices continue to baffle the experts, here are just a few of the noteworthy items set to go under the hammer this week:

Signed John F. Kennedy painting

Guide price: $42,000+

This artwork could be easily mistaken for the drawings you find on any old parent’s fridge. However, as it bears the signature of one of the United States’ most iconic presidents, John F. Kennedy, it comes with a fairly hefty price tag. Presidential paintings tend to do well at auction and this one will likely sell well at Heritage Auctions’ Americana & Political Grand Format Auction in Texas on Saturday, 2 December.

Jean Michel Basquiat – Untitled painted vase

Guide price: $40,000-$80,000

Works by famed American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat always offer up something odd, but a pair of painted glass vases might top the lot. One features a crudely drawn face scrapped on to a burgundy background. The second offers a little more detail, with yellow and green paint used to draw the eyes, nose and mouth. Either way, given the value of the Basquiat name, both are expected to fetch a similar price when they go under the hammer at John McInnis Auctioneers’ Extraordinary Estate Auction on Saturday, 2 December.
