SCOTLAND: Chemise belonging to Mary, Queen of Scots in which she was executed at Fotheringhay Castle. Of fine linen with drawn thread borders incribed on the bodice in red and dated Feb 11 1587. This is an Elizabethan undergarment and only one other of this type is known to survive.*** I have seen this.
