Since its debut in November 2016, Peter Morgan’s The Crown held court over our streaming habits for six jubilant—and often turbulent—seasons that chronicled the historic reign of Queen Elizabeth II, from her wedding to Philip in 1947 and a succession of prime ministers, to her “annus horribilis” in 1992, to the events leading up to Diana’s fatal accident in 1997. A crowning achievement (pun intended) for Netflix, the show wove nearly 60 years of royal history into as many episodes, garnering 21 Primetime Emmy awards. At the denouement of the series, the production team is offering those going through The Crown withdrawal one final brush with the series.

Now you can have any number of monarchical mementos from the production, as Bonhams London is offering almost 480 lots across two monumental sales. The Crown Auction is split between a live sale at the auctioneer’s New Bond Street location on February 7 and an online sale that ends the following day. No matter your budget or space constraints, there’s definitely something for every fan of the series.

With more than 300 lots, the online sale includes replica gates from the Buckingham Palace exterior set ($7,600–$10,000), a ballgown ($5,100–$7,000) worn by Foy in season 1, and the parquetry and gilt metal mounted cylinder bureau in the Louis XVI style ($2,500–$3,800) used by Foy, Colman, and Staunton as the Queen beginning in season 2. Other lots between the two sales count a wide array of furnishings and decorative props and a vast number of cast-worn ensembles, as well as a 1987 Jaguar XJ-SC 3.6-liter Cabriolet ($19,000–$25,000) driven by Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.
