Having graced the wrist of the legendary singer, a watch from amongst Elvis' last Christmas presents is set to go on auction in London this November 29th and is expected to sell for nearly $10,000 or more. This and a corset worn by Madonna have investors and collectors excited for the upcoming auction.
A watch which was one of Elvis Presley's last Christmas presents and a corset worn by Madonna on her 1990 "Blond Ambition" tour will be featured at a London auction.
The watch, estimated to sell for 6,000 pounds ($9,500) or more, is a diamond-set Rolex given to Presley by his longtime manager, Tom Parker. It is engraved, "Elvis merry Christmas your pal Col. Tom Parker." It was the last Christmas for Presley, who died the following year.
Madonna's corset by Jean-Paul Gaultier is of green silk with conical cups and beaded fringe, embroidered with candy stripes of opalescent sequins and peppermint bugle beads.
