Museum Quality Collectable!
Up for Auction is the sale of what it is believed to be a Royal undergarment of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
This piece of undergarment is part of the Estate of Baron Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi. The belief that they are indeed Royal is based on personal conversations with Mr. Dobronyi prior to his death, its physical characteristics, and the writing on the yellow manila envelope where they were stored for many years. The writing, which is in Spanish and that Mr. Dobronyi mentioned, came from relatives of his deceased pilot friend. His friend piloted the chartered plane that was used during H.M. Queen Elizabeth’s first trip to Chile in 1968.
According to the Baron and various periodicals, his parents were the Crown Jewelers to the royalty of Hungary and he apprenticed to the House of Thomanson, jewelers to the Swedish Royal Family. According to a Miami Herald article dated April 30, 1954, “among his accomplishments is a fabulous $15,000 emerald and diamond peacock brooch, which the late Prince Bernadotte of Sweden presented to Princess Elizabeth upon her engagement to Prince Phillip”. And the London weekly Today dated March 14, 1962, wrote in an article “in 1947 he was commissioned by Count Folke Bernadotte, to make a wedding present for Princess Elizabeth, as she was then. He worked for six months making a ring in the form of a miniature St. Edward’s Crown. Each ruby, diamond and pearl was an exact miniature of the original.”
Also, in 1985 the Baron was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, which president was Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Private Collection of the late Baron Joseph "Sepy" de Bicske Dobronyi.
Since Buckingham Palace or the garment maker have not confirm or deny the authenticity that this pair of underpants are from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the estate cannot confirm its provenance and it is the buyer’s responsibility to do that on their own before bidding. In either case this is an excellent example of a vintage undergarment of that era and very collectable.
Richly embroidered silk undergarment with a monogram of the royal crown with the initial script “E” underneath on the top left, with a designed stitched going across the garment above it. On each side there are two flowers on a stem with leaves and beside it a stem with two leaves. The garment is lined with a beautiful and delicate crocheted lace hem. There are four small pearl-like buttons on the left side.
This vintage garment is in good condition with a few stains and yellowing due to it's age. Inspection and appraisal by a qualified professional is highly recommended.
This garment is approximately 26 inch waist and 16 inch side length.
This vintage garment is in good condition for its age. Please view detailed photos for overall quality and minor imperfections. This item has been in Baron Joseph "Sepy" de Bicske Dobrony's collection for many years, and would make a wonderful addition for the avid collector of Royal Memorabilia or vintage clothing.
