    Jewelry, designer gowns, paintings and other personal items from Joan Rivers' New York penthouse will be auctioned in June.

    Melissa Rivers announced Tuesday that Christie's will sell more than 200 items that belonged to the late entertainer, with some proceeds benefiting God's Love We Deliver and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

    An online auction begins June 16 and the live auction in New York is set for June 22.

    Rivers said in a statement the auction will provide a "through-the-keyhole experience for fans across the globe to see and buy items from my mother's amazing Manhattan penthouse." Joan Rivers died in 2014. She was 81.

    Among the items available: jewels from Cartier and Harry Winston, stage-worn costumes designed by Bob Mackie and an engraved Tiffany water bowl used by Rivers' dog Spike.
