PARIS (AP) — Paris's glitzy Ritz hotel is putting some 10,000 pieces of furniture and decorative objects on auction, from a bathtub to beds and minibars.

Founded in 1898, the Ritz reopened two years ago after four years of renovation. The objects going on sale don't fit anymore in the new set-up, said Artcurial, the auction house in charge of the sale from April 17-21.

Among the items is the first bathtub installed at the hotel, estimated to fetch from 800 and 1,200 euros ($1,000-1,500). A gold sofa set from a salon named after the writer Marcel Proust is expected to raise up to $1,800, while a pair of black lacquered decorative Chinese junks, from the Coco Chanel suite, will be on offer from 2,000 euros.
