Cabinet owned by Brad Pitt to be auctioned off

A 19th century cabinet, which was once owned by Hollywood star Brad Pitt, is to go under the hammer later this month, auctioneers have confirmed.

The beech drawing room cabinet, dating from 1896, is valued at 12,000 and was bought in 1994 by Pitt from a friend and antique dealer in London when he was filming Interview with a Vampire. The friend, who auctioneers said wishes to remain anonymous, said: "Brad became a great collector of Decorative Arts and when I sold him this cabinet it was the very first piece in his collection.

"Over the years I got to know him well and after his break up with Jennifer Aniston he decided to sell most of his collection and I was given the chance to buy the cabinet back."
