Friends’ Central Perk coffee shop sofa goes under the hammer

It’s been part of the furniture on the hit U.S. comedy Friends since the first show.

Now the iconic orange sofa the stars sat on in the fictional Central Perk coffee shop is for sale.

It is set to fetch between $4,000 and $6,000 when it goes under the hammer next week at the Icons of Hollywood auction in Beverly Hills. Other keepsakes from the sitcom include Courteney Cox’s character Monica’s rocking horse poster, the broken yellow peephole frame on her door and a jar of pickles from the Friends set.

And there’s a snow globe given to the Friends cast members –  Jennifer Aniston, Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer – as a Christmas gift.

Fans of the show, which ran for 10 seasons, can also buy the framed art, by pop artist Burton Morris, that hung on Central Perk’s walls.

Film aficionados will be able to bid for the ruby slippers and Cowardly Lion costume from The Wizard of Oz, the DeLorean sports car from Back to the Future III, Steve McQueen’s Le Mans racing suit and Bela Lugosi’s Dracula cape.

There are also exclusive items from the estates of movie icons Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe.
