    A RARE COTTON CHAIR COVER FROM QUEEN VICTORIA AT WINDSOR CASTLE patterned in red with three repeating emblematic tiles being Victoria`s crowned cypher, a Tudor Rose and a Scottish thistle, the lining stamped in black-ink with `Windsor Castle 1893, Room 520 No...` ¦Provenance: letter to accompany reads ``...this is the chair cover of the tub chair used by Queen Victoria at Windsor. It came from her sitting room. Used regularly until her last illness. Given to my mother by the daughter of Mrs Davies, a palace servant of many years who was given it by his friend the housekeeper at Windsor Castle when the Queen`s rooms were being refurbished by Edward VII and all the hangings and covers etc burnt in special incinerators. Mrs Davies asked her (as the sitting room curtains went by being carried by housemaids) if she could have a memento of the Queen. The housekeeper went inside and brought out the chair cover. `That`s from the Queen`s chair` she said. Mrs Davies went on to St James`s where she was chambermaid to the Prince of Wales eventually. The old Queen was very parsimonious and the chair covers had to be turned & patched until there was hardly any of the original left. This one has never been touched since it left her chair and there is still a faint odour of perfume perhaps from the pomade on her hair. Also a grease spot!!
