The piece, which was created in 1959, will be sold on behalf of the Rauschenberg Foundation. The metal rack was originally used in France to dry wine bottles. Design fans can see the piece at Ropac's Paris gallery from 20th October until 14th January next year. Ropac has stated that the piece will be sold to a public museum only.

With only five versions of the piece still in existence, the piece is sure to have museum collections around the world clamouring to acquire it.
