An extremely rare cast of Princess Diana's left hand is expected to fetch up to £40,000 ($45,600 USD) when it goes under the hammer next week.
The hand will be up for grabs on Tuesday, November 8 at auctioneers Reeman Dansie, Colchester, UK.
The rare cast of Princess Diana's hands was made by the world-renowned sculptor Oscar Nemon.
Nemon, who was working on a relief of the Princess when he died in 1985, also did sculptures of the late Queen Elizabeth, Winston Churchill and Siegmund Freud.
A cast he made of Sir Winston Churchill's right hand is also being auctioned by Reeman Danise next Tuesday.
It is expected to fetch about $7,000 USD.
Reeman Dansie's royal specialist James Grinter said: "It is an amazing feeling to be able to hold the hands of two of the most famous influential Britons of the twentieth century."
Other lots in the sale include a signed portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and pictures of her learning to drive and helping to repair cars.
A rare 1950s pink satin petticoat tailor-made for Her Majesty could also see bidding reach £1,500.
