Comedienne Joan Rivers is clearing out the Connecticut mansion she sold last year (13) by auctioning off everything from furniture to fine art.

The acerbic funnywoman has listed more than 150 items for officials at Christie's auction house in New York to place under the hammer during an interiors sale on 1 and 2 April (14).

Among the lots include a pair of white-painted palm trees estimated at $5,000 (£3,125), a modern upholstered bed in pink linen, which is valued at $3,000 (£1,875), and a collection of animal horn trophies which is expected to raise $2,000 (£1,250).

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to an undisclosed charity.

Rivers offloaded the country home for $4.4 million (£2.75 million) in 2013.
