Royalty - a collection of regal memorabilia

Kings and emperors, depicted on various objects often serve a commemorative occasion: a marriage, a birth or state visit. Yet, some show a war or demise of a monarchy. This collection was part of the 2012 Rotterdam exhibition “Everything for the Crown"

About Royalty - a collection of regal memorabilia

Traditionally, kings and emperors are depicted on prints, paintings, coins and tokens. But there are many more ways to display the king or queen: portraits or statuettes in porcelain, crystal, bronze, silver and gold for example. Nowadays crowned heads even adorn packages of consumer items such as alcoholic beverages, biscuit tins, tea towels and teaspoons. Such objects often serve to commemorate happy occasions: a marriage, a birth, a trip or a state visit. However some of these objects might literally show the other side of the coin. The lots offered in the “Royalty” auction give a lively picture of hundreds of years of European royal houses and have been on display in the 2012 Rotterdam sales exhibition “Everything for the Crown”

    Een van de karaffen is gebroken aangekomen. Daar kan de verkoper niets aan doen, alhoewel ik het slecht vond ingepakt. Maar erger nog, de verkoper heeft na een aantal berichten GEEN respons gegeven.

    Wellicht is het verstandig om eens in Uw mailbox te kijken, heb wel degelijk een reactie gegeven. Verder; U schrijft 'daar kan de verkoper niets aan doen' en dan komt er van U een negatieve Feedback ???

    Deze reactie is de waanzin ten top ! De koper moest zelf zorgen voor het afhalen van het schilderij. Dat duurde ongeveer één maand !!! en dan schrijft hij; de verscheping ging langzaam met een negatief oordeel over mij ?????
