Not quite priceless but worth a hefty amount: a long riding undergarment once worn by emperor Franz Joseph was snapped up for over 6,000 euros at an auction in Vienna this week.

An imperial collector forked out 6,250 euros ($8,100) for the underwear, worn by the long-ruling Habsburg emperor, whose death in 1916 came two years before the end of the Austro-Hungarian empire, the Dorotheum auction house announced Wednesday.

Another riding undergarment belonging to Franz Josef's wife, empress Elisabeth -- immortalised as Sisi in a series of romantic films -- on the other hand sold for just 3,250 euros.

The item was never worn: ordered shortly before Sisi was murdered by an Italian anarchist in Geneva in 1898, it was never even picked up from the maker's.

The most expensive object to be sold at Tuesday's auction was a ceremonial staff used at the Hungarian coronation of emperor Franz II in 1792, fetching some 61,300 euros.

The Dorotheum holds an auction of imperial items once every year.
