teatimeatwinterpalace:

• The Christening of the Prince of Wales, Albert Edward later King Edward VII - 25 January 1842.

A silver-gilt and ivory ladle with a bowl formed as a large matted shell, the whorl rising to a coral branch encrusted with small shells; the ivory shaft is slightly curved and formed in two sections joined by a silver-gilt foliage spray. The handle terminates in a rococo cartouche incorporating the Prince of Wales’s feathers.

The Grand Punch Bowl was originally created as a wine cooler. For the christening of Prince Albert Edward (Edward VII) at Windsor Castle in 1843, Queen Victoria converted the cooler into a punch bowl with the addition of this ladle.

carolathhabsburg:

The Gloucester diamond+ Turquoise parure

The first owner of this gorgeous parure was Queen Mary of Great Britain as a wedding gift from her parents, the duke and duchess of Teck. As you can see, the tiara was quite different.

Later on, it was modified and gave as a wedding gift to Alice Montagu-Douglas, bride of Prince Henry, duke of Gloucester,

Nowaday, the parure is used by the current duchess of Gloucester, Birgitte.
