RR Auction has also received media attention for the sale of other Jimi Hendrix items including his Chinese Buddha statue. “The statue itself is a rare and historic piece, dating back to the later Ming Dynasty period of 1368-1644, and it was originally a gift from his close friend Stella Benabou Douglas and her husband, record producer Alan Douglas” according to Just Collecting. Artdaily also covered this incredibly rare artifact stating that the Buddha came directly from Stella Douglas herself. Selling for an impressive $19,328, the popularity of Jimi Hendrix items continues to elevate. Another remarkable sale, this fully-signed Jimi Hendrix Experience album was also a hit among our buyers going for a whopping $30,712 in July 2015.
Other pieces from Hendrix’s personal life have also made their way through our doors, including Hendrix’s original Toronto arrest fingerprint card. Brave Words stated that he “filled out the card after he was detained in Toronto on May 3rd, 1969. After arriving at Pearson International Airport, a customs agent found a small amount of heroin and hashish in his luggage.” In March 2018, his one-of-a-kind arrest card sold for $29,248 making this an incredible success for our consignor.
