#RBG collar fails to sell at auction, still available for purchase

One of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s most famous collars is still up for grabs after it failed to sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction.

The late Supreme Court justice’s collar, known as “The Pegasus,” was described as one of Ginsburg’s favorite signature pieces.

While bidding Thursday had reached upward of $195,000, a representative from the auction house told ITK that the collar “did not make the reserve, so it didn’t sell.”

“We believe the collar is significant and placed a high estimate on it based on provenance,” a spokeswoman from the Potomack Company said of the limited-edition silver metallic bib by Stella & Dot. The collar had been expected to sell for between $200,000 and $400,000.

Ginsburg, who died in 2020 at age 87, sported the collar in her 2018 official Supreme Court photo. The accessory is also featured in a forthcoming book about the wardrobe of the former leader of the court’s liberal wing: “The Collars of RBG: A Portrait of Justice.”

The Potomack Company said that “post-sale offers are being accepted at this time” for the collar.

The auction house had previously said that a portion of its commission from the sale of the collar would be donated to the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Endowed Fund for Research in Civil Rights and Gender Equality of the American Bar Foundation.
