Queen Victoria's Stockings For Sale

For Sale: Queen Victoria's Tattered Stockings

Next month a pair of stockings that belonged to Queen Victoria will be auctioned off to anyone who has at least $600. Though you'll probably need a lot more than that, considering a pair of her bloomers sold for $5,000 in July 2008.


A specialist from the auction house made sure to up the stockings' cache by saying, "I was immediately reminded of a scene in the film The Young Victoria, where Prince Albert knelt at Queen Victoria's feet and rolled her silk stockings up her legs." Except the stockings are believed to date back to 1874 when the queen was in her 50s and her husband was dead. They are, however, believed to be one of her favorite designs.

I like to wear tights sometimes, but owning these kind of weirds me out. What would you do with them? Would you display them on the fireplace mantle or something?

Ew, no thanks. Although I know there are plenty of collectors that would love to have these, no matter the cost.
