Kaminski Auctions anticipates a global audience of buyers for what it says is a "highly anticipated auction" tied to a "legendary family of society and industry in the United States."

DuRoss married Ford in Carson City, Nevada, in 1980. Ford served as CEO, president, and chairman of Ford. They were married for seven years, until his death in September 1987.

Overall, there will be more than 1,500 lots from the Ford estate, as well as additions from other estates, available to bid on during the three-day auction.

Clothing, accessories and designer shoes and handbags will be available for bid on April 9, followed by fine art, furniture and furnishings on the remaining days.

There will be a second auction in May which will be part two of the collection.
