On Feb. 7 — less than one month after the Scottsdale auction concludes — London-based auction house Bonhams will host a Paris event they’re calling “Les Grandes Marques du Monde au Grand Palais.”

That’s French for ‘The Great Marques of the World at the Grand Palais,” with the Grand Palais being a historic Beaux-Arts exhibition structure located on the Champs-Élysées.

It’s a premium location, and everything set to cross the block — from memorabilia to motorcycles — reflects that. The more than 600 lots include books, hood ornaments, posters, cars, motorcycles and even the De Havilland Gipsy Moth biplane used in the filming of Out of Africa.
