A very personal Evan Braun relic, her embroidered non-elastic pink rayon brassiere with cotton paneling inside. A label bearing her embroidered initials "E B" in red thread is sewn between the cups on the exterior. Shows slight soiling, with the securing hook missing from the rear straps, else very good. Our consignor, a 40+ year dealer/collector, purchased this item and other personal possessions belonging to Braun approximately thirty years ago from an ex-O.S.S. agent Eugene Frankenfeld. Included with the brassiere is a copy of Frankenfield's original letter of provenance, dated April 14, 1976, indicating that he became Commanding Intelligence Officer for District Greater Salzburg in May of 1945, and confiscated luggage deposited by Braun and her family from a hotel in a small town outside of Salzburg. He lists the items he recovered, specifically mentioning "...1 box lot of Eva Braun dresses, undergarments, coat, scarves, hats...", among many other personal relics.
