I was making a fast search today at google and I found this site, it is in hungarian and I don't understand it so much but there was a black and white photo depicting a lovely hungarian black dress that seemed to belong to Sissi with some accesories, I found it very beautiful but please, for the ones who know hungarian let me to know if it really belonged Sissi

Looked like the contents of a traveling suitcase.

Eric, I do not know of anyone that takes a wooden closet with them on their travel.......... It is obviously a display closet!

it looks more like just a showcase, not one of those "Louis Vuitton" wardrobe trunks

A literal trunk show I guess. Elisabeth was an empress and so I don't think she had to worry about excess baggage.

Not really. Although Sisi liked farm animals as a girl.

Eric, REALLY!!!  ::)I am assuming an avid historian like yourself would have read the Reluctant Empress, by Brigitte Hamann.

I did. Sisi loved animals more than people.

It's not a traveling suitcase. This is part of an exhibition. The text under the picture says "The Queen's Hungarian gown which she weared on the Millenium Feast.
(of Hungary...)"  ;)

Thanks for the translation of the caption Zukunftsseele; I didn't imagine that Sissi wore that beautiful dress on a celebration as important as the 1896 Millenium! I read once that she wore all black but never thought that the dress still existed!!  :o ;)

Well, it seems to be an old newspaper article and photo, so it's not sure it still exists. Maybe somebody knows for sure.
