1992 Frank Sinatra concert used handkerchief
A silk pocket handkerchief used by Frank Sinatra during his performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London on May 29th 1992. It was one of his final appearances in the UK. The original owner had a seat in the fourth row during the concert and had brought along some flowers for Frank. As his final song - New York, New York - came to an end she shouted "Frank, Frank!". He came over to the edge of the stage, thanked her for the flowers and gave her the orange handkerchief from his suit. She has treasured it ever since and was sad to part with it recently via auction. Included with the handkerchief is the lady's original concert program and ticket from the event, and the 2016 auction catalogue featuring the handkerchief. The May 29, 1992 concert at the Royal Albert Hall is thought not to have been filmed, however Frank can be seen wearing an identical handkerchief during his performance in Barcelona just five days later.
