Missing dress owned by Queen Alexandra found in attic.

Quote
A missing black dress worn by Queen Alexandra has been discovered in an attic and given to a museum in Bath.

The silk and velvet gown belonging to the Danish-born wife of King Edward VII, had been hidden away in a private collection for more than 60 years,

Its existence was discovered after owner Francesca Counsell Risius got in touch with the city's Fashion Museum.

It is understood it was bought as a royal curiosity for her great aunt's shop in Tunbridge Wells in the 1950s.

Embellished with beads and sequins, the evening dress was designed for the fashion-conscious queen by London dressmaker Barolet.

Dating from the early 1900s, it also boasts her signature black and gold name tag sewn into the waist tape.
