Catalogue Note

This brooch commemorates the 15th wedding anniversary of Princess Ingeborg of Denmark and Prince Carl of Sweden. The daughter of Crown Prince Frederick, later King Frederick VIII, of Denmark married the third son of King Oscar II of Sweden on 27th August 1897 at the Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen. Paragons of domesticity, the couple went on to be grandparents of three European monarchs: King Harald V of Norway, King Baudouin of the Belgians and King Albert II of the Belgians.
