Queen Victoria's silk stockings to be sold





The black and white hand-stitched garments with crests are valued at £400.

They are thought to date from 1874, when she was in her mid-50s, and are believed to have been the monarch's favourite design during the 1870s.

The stockings will be auctioned as part of a fine antiques sale at Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh on March 24.
