✧ Empress Elisabeth of Austria and her family Spam [22/50] ✧
Very few dresses of Elizabeth has been preserved. This dress isn’t shown to the public for reasons of conservation, however a copy was made for the Sisi Museum of Vienna. She wore this gown at her farewell to Bavaria, April 20, 1854. Dress and shawl were entrusted to the Institute of Arabic Language at the University of Vienna. It is in fact a « Tugra » an ancient seal of Sultan which translates: « Oh Lord, what a beautiful dream ». Surely it was bring back from one of the numerous journeys of Duke Max, Elisabeth’s father.
