Available at the Doyle Home Auction, Dec. 7th in New York City
There will be a number of other home and gift type items up for auction as well so it may be worth stopping by the preview. If you have to work (like me) or will not be in NYC at the time & can't be at the auction house at 10:00 a.m., you can bid live via the website.
