A rose gold dress from the French royal family of Louis XIV has been sold at auction in New York for $1.35 million.
The dress, which was owned by the late King Louis XVI, was bought by the family of French designer Léon Blanot, the Daily Mail reported.
Blanott’s wife Jeanne and son Pierre had been the owners of the dress when it was sold in 2015.
Jeanne Blanotte told the Daily Beast that she and her husband bought the dress for “only” $300,000.
She said that the dress had a diamond in the cuffs, which made it the second-most expensive item on their estate, after the queen’s crown.
The dress was worn by Princess Eugénie de Blanots youngest daughter Marie-Thérèse, who became queen in 1936.
The royal family owned the dress until 1954, when it passed to Blanovitch, who sold it in 1981.
The dress has been on the auction block since 2015.
The French royal, who was born in 1692, is believed to have been a wealthy diamond merchant and philanthropist, according to The New York Times.
He had the dress as a gift from his father to his wife after he died.
