Pieces from The Plaza on the Block

NEW YORK (USA Today) – Eloise's ruby slippers, a red bellman's uniform and a Steinway baby grand piano are among items from New York's storied Plaza hotel that Christie's will be auctioning Wednesday. The landmark hotel, which opened in 1907, was sold in 2004, and its new owners have been renovating. Most items already have been sold, but the 1,000 or so left have estimated auction prices of $50 to $18,000.
