The Prussian Meander Tiara: 🇩🇪
.
.
.
Happy Monday everyone! As promised, here is the Prussian Meander Tiara that has been on display recently at a very princely wedding in Germany. This is fitting since it has a long history of German roots and royal lineage. In 1905 it was made by German court jewelers Koch as a wedding gift to Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin from the groom, Wilhelm Crown Prince of Prussia. Wilhelm was born to Wilhelm II and his first wife, Princess Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein and is a descendent of Queen Victoria’s through his father’s side. Wilhelm II’s mother was Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa, Princess Royal who’s mother was Queen Victoria. Moving on…

This striking piece is made entirely of diamonds set in platinum in a very Russian kokoshnik shape. The bottom is a simple band of diamonds but soon evolves into a greek key motif with panels of diamond trellis work set between another band of greek keys. Each trellis section is centered with a large brilliant diamond. By today’s standards this is a massive almost imposing tiara, but back when it was made it was well suited for its original purpose, which would have been to sit atop an Empress’s perfectly coiffed head. After all, if history would have played out differently, Wilhelm would have eventually become Emperor of Prussia and Cecilie would have become Empress. Of course, that’s not what happened, but the tiara remains in the Hohenzollern family and as we can see from recent pics it’s still worn by their descendants. ‼️👉🏻continued on next post‼️ #antique #atiaraaday #diamonds #diamondtiara #history #germanroyals #jewels #jewelry #monarchy #prussianmeandertiara #princesscecillieofprussia #princesssophieofprussia #princessviktorialuiseofprussia #royalty #royaljewels #tiara #platinum

The oldest globe to depict the Americas (c. 1504)

The 512-year-old globe – about the size of a grapefruit – was made from the lower halves of two ostrich eggs. It was purchased in 2012 at the London Map Fair from a dealer who said it had been in an important European collection for many decades.

The globe contains ships of different types, monsters, intertwining waves, a shipwrecked sailor, 71 place names, and one phrase in Latin – ‘HIC SVNT DRACONES’ (here are the dragons).

Only seven of the names are in the Western Hemisphere. No names are shown for North America, which is represented as a group of scattered islands; three names are shown in South America – ‘Mundus Novus’ (New World), ‘Terra de Brazil,’ and ‘Terra Sanctae Crucis’ (Land of the Holy Cross).

For many countries and territories in the world including Japan, Brazil and Arabia this is the oldest known engraved depiction on a globe.

“When I heard of this globe, I was initially skeptical about its date, origin, geography and provenance, but I had to find out for myself,” explained Dr Stefaan Missinne, an independent research scholar from Belgium and the author of a paper describing the find in the journal Portolan.

Until now, it was thought that the oldest globe to show the New World was the Lenox Globe at the New York Public Library, but Dr Missinne presents evidence that the ostrich egg globe was actually used to cast the copper Lenox globe, putting its date – 1504.
