A few other items featured in the auction showed the late kung fu master's artistic flair.
One is a pendant that Lee designed just months before his death. It features a dragon in white gold and another in yellow gold perched above a piece of jade, facing each other.
Another is a drawing of a Chinese master monk that is believed to be a conceptual character for "The Green Bamboo Warrior", a movie that was never made because of his premature death. These items helped shedlight on the actor's personality, said Anna Lee.

"He enjoys painting, he enjoys writing letters or whatever, so basically he's just a person who is very emotional in a way. He is just a good man at heart, I think," Lee said.
A Bruce Lee collector, Stanley Zau, came to take a look at the items for sale on Monday.
Zau already owns a claw prop used by Lee's nemesis in the movie "Enter the Dragon" and nunchucks that Lee used for regular practice. He said the items at this auction reflected Lee's philosophy.
"I think it tells you that the man is capable of turning something rather simple into something very elegant. The bell really rings with a lot of people."

Several Bruce Lee-themed events took place in Hong Kong this year to coincide with the 40th anniversary of his death.
In July, Hong Kong opened a five-year exhibition that displays over 600 items, many of which are on loan from the Bruce Lee Foundation run by his daughter, Shannon.
Fans also marked the anniversary with art exhibitions, gallery shows and a memorial trail that marked six spots relevant to Lee's life across the former British colony.
