A life-size cast of Princess Diana’s hand could fetch up to 40,000 pounds (Rs 37,03,548) at an auction the following week. Reeman Dansie in the southeast English county of Essex, United Kingdom, will auction off the plaster cast of the former Princess of Wales’ left hand, which will also display her wedding ring, the outlet added.

Oscar Nemon, a well-known Croatian sculptor, created the mold just before he passed away in April 1985. According to the auction house, the 24-centimeter-long cast is “scarce” and “unique.” The “Royalty, Fine Art and Antiques Sale” sale by Reeman Dansie is scheduled for November 8. “This is thought to be a unique cast of Princess Diana’s hand made during her lifetime with her permission and obvious co-operation and is consequently of extraordinary importance and rarity,” the auction house’s official website states. When describing the casting process, they said, “The hand is submerged in a liquid silicone bath during the procedure, and once it has dried, a mold has been created from which a plaster of Paris cast can be constructed. sold with a vendor’s letter certifying its origin.”

According to the auction house’s description, the life cast was previously owned by Karin Churchill, a sculptor and Nemon’s assistant. Sculptures of the late Queen, Winston Churchill, and Siegmund Freud were also created by Croatian artists. Just a few days before the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana’s passing, a sporty Ford Escort that was once her go-to vehicle was auctioned off in August for 737,000 pounds (about Rs 6,82,52,839). The tiny car, which had only 24,961 miles (40,000 km) on it, was auctioned off at Silverstone Auctions in Warwickshire, in the heart of England. Diana frequently appeared in photos with the vehicle while touring London’s stores and eateries.
