“It pains me to part with these cherished items, but I recently downsized homes and simply do not have room for many of the items,” Cevey tells Page Six.

“These are some of our most prized family possessions,” she said, adding that the jukebox was a gift from Collins’ manager when they wedded in 1999.

As for the piano, she says it was their family’s and Collins used it to teach their 22-year-old son Nicholas how to play.

The exes also share an 18-year-old son, Matthew.

“I am also auctioning off a huge collection of Chanel,” Cevey added.

“I was Chanel’s number one client when I started collecting in 2001 with more than 500 pairs of Chanel shoes in my collection.”

A sizable collection of Chanel clothing, shoes and boots will be heading to the auction block, plus plenty of Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.

Kodner Auction Gallery president Russ Kodner said in a statement: “This auction is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire some of the most personal and iconic items from the private collection of Phil and Orianne Collins.
