AK Files: Britain Blocks Export of Lawrence Robes

LONDON.- Two of T.E. Lawrence’s most iconic possessions are at risk of being exported from the UK unless a buyer can be found to match the asking prices of £122,500 for his dagger and £12,500 for his robes.

Culture Minister Ed Vaizey has placed two separate temporary export bars to provide an opportunity to keep these national treasures in the UK.

Lawrence was considered one of the most recognizable figures of the First World War, following his work in the Middle East and his involvement in the Arab Revolt.

The archaeologist and diplomat worked closely with numerous Arab leaders and would always be seen in traditional Arab dress. These white silk robes were made in Mecca or Medina and he wears them in the 1919 oil portrait by Augustus John.
