NEW YORK, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- A sale of collars and leashes used by the pugs of the duke and duchess of Windsor may fetch up to $5,800, says Bonhams auction house in New York.

The 13 collars and leashes are to be auctioned Feb. 10, The Times of London reported Saturday.

A medallion engraved on one leash says "HRH The Duchess of Windsor," while two collars are engraved with their Paris address.

The duke, formerly known as Britain's King Edward VIII, took the title of duke of Windsor after abdicating his throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
