A rare black, bejewelled glove worn by pop icon Michael Jackson is expected to fetch as much as USD 50,000 when it goes up for sale as part of a auction in China later this year.
The stage accessory, decorated with small black Swarovski stones, was worn by the 'King of Pop' during his promotional tour for the 1995 'HIStory' tour, reported Contactmusic.
It will be auctioned off alongside a selection of other Jackson memorabilia, including stage costumes, original paintings and handwritten notes by the singer himself.
Collectibles from the careers of fellow pop legends Madonna and Elvis Presley will also be going up for auction, as well as pieces from Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee and late British royal, Diana, Princess of Wales.
A burgundy velvet dress worn by the Princess to a 1989 event at the French Embassy is another sale highlight, the ball gown, worn during a ceremony honouring the then-French ambassador, Viscount Luc de La Barr de Nanteuil, is expected to sell for between USD 80,000 and USD 100,000.
Film memorabilia from Hollywood blockbusters 'Batman','Ghostbusters' and 'The Last Samurai' are also among the lots on offer.
The biggest attractions will be put on display in Tokyo, Japan and Santiago, Chile in the run up to the MACau auction.
The sale, by California-based Julien's Auctions, will be the first such pop culture event to be held in China.
