Queen Elizabeth remembered: Rare, 'exquisite' cutting from her coronation dress goes up for auction

A piece of floral embroidery originally created for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation dress from 1953 will be put up for auction soon.

The fabric sample from Her Majesty’s iconic gown, a collaboration with royal designer Norman Hartnell, may sell for thousands of dollars, reported SWNS, a British news service.

The 70-year-old embroidery sample is one of many that was created during the design process for the Queen’s gown.

Also up for sale at the auction will be hand-drawn “detailed watercolor clothing designs” dating back to 1952, and earlier, for then-Princess Elizabeth and the Queen Mother.

A Hanson’s textile consultant, Notty Hornblower, called the floral embroidery swatch “a stunning find,” SWNS reported.

The intricate designs showcased on the embroidered fabric swatch are “emblems of the four home nations and the Commonwealth, in silver and gold thread, diamante, silver bullion and mother-of-pearl,” noted SWNS.

The experts at Hanson’s Auctioneers expect the historical fabric sample to sell for as much as $2,500 when it hits the auction block on May 16, SWNS also reported. 

“This embroidery is exquisite and a stunning auction find,” Notty Hornblower, owner of Derbyshhire’s Hope House Costume Museum, told SWNS.
