Last week I wrote about an auction of vintage clothes held by Kerry Taylor Auctions, that included some gems from the 18th and early 19th century. I thought you might like to know that

the gold brocaded dress a la Francaise had a sale price of £3,400. The marvellous banyan

was sold for the magnificent sum of £24,000 and the early 19th century Honiton lace dress

was sold for £1400.  Do note that all prices quoted above are the hammer price and do not include the buyer’s premium.

Princes Diana’s replica shoes realised the sum of £30,000. Must get  mine out of storage….
