AUCTIONS You Want A Piece Of A Pope?

Posted by on 15. September 2017

The price is 4500 Euro

John Paul II wearing a Mitra

HONESTLY, I DIDN’T KNOW THAT PART OF A POPE’S WARDROBE IS AVAILABLE. But in November (2017) they auction an original Mitra in Munich. It belonged, so the catalogue says, to the Polish Pope John Paul II (1920-2005) – one of these ceremonial hats, used in pompous appearences, called Mitra. In this case, since it is embroidered with gold-threat, showing a Maltese cross and twigs of laurel, the official name is „Mitra ornata“. From the back hang two (silk?) bands, decorated with John Paul’s personal crest and again the Maltese cross. I tried to find a picture of the Pope, wearing this one, but couldn’t, the stamp from Serbia comes close. The price? It’s called for 4500 Euro or ca. US-$ 5000. The auction date: 14th./15th. of November. To get in touch with the auctioneer use his e-mail adress:
