A recent auction of some of David Bowie's most prized possessions was a huge hit and most things were sold beyond their expected price. The late legend's custom Brionvega record player, which he had designed as a "musical pet", has sold for £257k ($324).

The two-day auction at Sotheby's also included Bowie's private art collection, which housed famous works from the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Marcel Duchamp, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and Damien Hirst. The artwork was sold for over £24 million on its first day.
