KEY CENTRAL - METAL BOX


Price: $ 450.00   (Personal Items » Rock Hudson)

WELL.....HERE IT IS!  THIS IS THE BOX I FOUND THE KEYS IN UNDER ALL THE PAPERWORK AND FILES!!!!

THIS BOX WAS A "KEY CENTRAL" OF ROCK'S BEFORE I WAS THERE.  IT IS THE SAME AS SOME OF THE OTHERS HE HAD.

This is it!  The keys I recently put on the web site.....here is where I found them.   I had only thought there were files in the box, but on top of other paperwork, I found the last set of keys.   This box looks old and I may have the key.  The files that were in the box were very personal to Rock.  That makes this box very personal and close to Rock, probably what he would have grabbed in the event of a fire close.

A wonderful and very personal piece of Rock hudson.

KEYS TO A CAR OWNED BY ROCK AND APPARENTLY TOM CLARK


Price: $ 500.00   (Personal Items » Rock Hudson)

HERE IS A WONDERFUL FIND!!!

Recently I was asked to search for some items and in my search's I came across a bowl of Keys.  Rock used to always keep his keys in what he called his "Key Central".  He had them all over. 

They were either the kind you buy like a wood carving with a bunch of hooks on it, or the lock box type.  As a joke one time, Tom Clark bought  one and installed it in the kitchen cabinet right above Rock's head where he sat at the kitchen table.  It was carved out of wood and was in the shape of a large key.  It was so tacky.  And to get back at Tom, Rock left it there.  

These keys I recently found are old. Some very old and as a matter of fact, older than I am.  Before my time.   He marked these keys and I did some searching and I think I matched them to there places.   The last ten years I was up at the Castle, I didn't know Rock to mark his keys.  Maybe because he went through them often or maybe he had a bad experience from marking them in the past; I am not sure.  But these keys I recently found are marked and wonderful!  Some were I could barely see the stamp marks until I rubbed them, they were so tarnished.

This is a TWO piece set that looks like car keys.  I am not sure what kind of car it is too, but Rock owned a number of different cars.  Looks like a Chevy or GM.  Maybe a Cadillac.  It hs a little leather key ring.  I leave these the way I find them.  On the one  key it is stamped with both Rock Hudsons initials and Tom Clark's initials.  Tom was Rock's life partner.

Keys to Rock's 1979 Cadillac seville


Price: $ 750.00   (Personal Items » Rock Hudson)

I just opened another box and hit the jackpot!

In it I found a few of Rock's old keys to his homes and cars.  

WOWWWWW!

Very personal for sure espically because of Rock's love of driving.

These keys went to a medium blue Cadillac Seville. 

I do have photos of the car, but not on the site, yet.  I have to search through boxes to find them.

It was a special edition Seville that I was told by Rock that only 50 were made.

It was one of the first cars with a computer.

They are  stamped with his initials and "79 CAD"!!

WOW, AGAIN, AGAIN, and again!!!

This set comes with the key ring. 

This box I found  is filled with knick-knacks of all sorts!!!!!!

Well I recently found this photo of the car!!!

This is a TWO key  with key ring.  All  stamped.    These keys are from Rock's NEW YORK APARTMENT, THE BERESFORD # 19 D.  

The Beresford, at 211 Central Park West, between 81st and 82nd Streets, is an upscale, 23-floor apartment building in New York City. The architect, Emery Roth, was famous for building luxury apartments and hotels throughout the city. The Beresford, completed in 1929, is one of four Roth apartment blocks on Central Park West including the El Dorado (between 90th and 91st Streets), the San Remo (between 74th and 75th Streets), and (on the corner of 92nd street). The Beresford is the largest by volume. Its mass relieved by horizontal belt courses, staggered setbacks governed by the 1916 Zoning Resolution, which provide some apartments with terraces, and architectural detailing that gives an impression of Georgian houses embedded in the mass. It takes its name from the Hotel Beresford, which had occupied the same site since 1889. The Beresford has two very prominent street-front facades, crowned by its three distinctive octagonal copper-capped corner towers, the eastern facade overlooks Central Park; and the southern facade overlooks Theodore Roosevelt Park, the park that contains the American Museum of Natural History.

 

The massive block is opened to the west, giving it a U-shape, wrapped round a central court. Three elevators give separate access to small foyers, originally each accessing two apartments of a scale that was eliminated in New York, both by the stock market crash and the new Multiple Dwellings Law.

 

Unlike some of Manhattan's prestigious co-op buildings, the Beresford accepts celebrities and politicians as residents. Current residents include comedian Jerry Seinfeld in Isaac Stern's former apartment, singer Diana Ross, actress Glenn Close, Betsy Gotbaum and Victor Gotbaum, reporter John Stossel, and movie producer David Brown, actor Andrew McCarthy, tennis player John McEnroe, Coach CEO Lew Frankfort, and Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit. Former residents have included historian Alan Brinkley, magazine editor Helen Gurley Brown, diplomat Richard Holbrooke, Tony Randall, Rock Hudson, Margaret Mead, Laura Nyro and Beverly Sills.

Once again I have a number of items relating to this home and property including checks.   If interested, I will PAIR THEM  and offer big savings!!!
