Dallas businessman Edwin L. Cox Sr. died in 2020 at age 99, but his estate is still making news.

Cox’s landmark Highland Park mansion sold in November to billionaire banker Andy Beal.

Also in November, bidders at a Christie’s auction spent $332 million for Cox’s impressionist art collection, which included paintings from Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

But you could own a piece of the SMU business school namesake’s estate for much less.

Hindman Auctions will offer property from Cox’s estate across four auctions from January-March.

The first, “Chicago Collections,” is Thursday and Friday, Jan. 13-14. The auction has 652 lots, with items such as tables and chairs, sofas, lamps, paintings, Limoges porcelain, Lalique glassware, Baccarat crystal, dining ware and decorative items like this Cartier silver and agate deer sculpture.
