A selection of set pieces, props and costumes from Netflix’s The Crown will be sold at two auctions in London
Following the release of (the first half of) historical drama The Crown‘s sixth and final season, auction house Bonhams has announced an exhibition of sets, costumes and props from each season, followed by two auctions in the new year.
The exhibition, which will also tour New York, Los Angeles and Paris, will be held at the Bonhams’ New Bond Street site for just over three weeks across January and February and entry will be free. Expect to see reproductions of some of the Royal Family’s most recognisable outfits and artefacts, with highlights including the Coronation ordaining regalia, Princess Diana’s engagement ring and ‘revenge’ dress, and the Gold State Coach.
The items will then go under the hammer at two auctions, one online and one held at Bonhams on New Bond Street, and funds raised from the live event will go towards establishing the Left Bank Pictures – The Crown Scholarship programme at the National Film and Television School. Prices of these sets, props and costumes from The Crown are expected to start at around £1500, with some pieces predicted to fetch as much as £50,000 (the upper limit estimated for the replica of the historic Gold State Coach). Fans of the show, even if you don’t have the cash to take anything home, don’t miss the exhibition for a glimpse behind the scenes.
Stay in the loop…
