Before her death, she had her lawyers remove all the weapons from the Armory and after her death all the contents of the Armory and family correspondence were sold off. A principal buyer was Geoge Strakaty of Vienna who was acted for then by the prominent English Antique Arms Dealer Herbert Sutcliffe.
