Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $15,186.33 (includes buyer's premium)


Princess Diana's extraordinary circa early 1980s personally-owned and -used satin-lined silver jeweled evening bag, measuring 8 x 6.5 x 1.5, given to Kensington Palace Senior Housemaid Sheila Tilley. In fine condition, with a few stains to interior. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Tilley, in part: "I write to confirm that I was in the employ of their Royal Highnesses, the Prince and Princess of Wales, Charles and Diana. The duration of my service at Kensington Palace was from 1981 to 1983. My position in the royal household was Senior Housemaid. I was honoured to be one of the 40 guests invited to Prince William's Christening in 1982…The evening bag…was originally owned by Princess Diana. It came into my possession when the Royal Butler, Alan Fisher, distributed a few of Diana's unwanted items to staff who were present at the time in the kitchen." The gorgeous bag is heavy and solid, and no picture can behold its beauty. An exquisite item demonstrating Diana's fabulous style and refined taste.
