Stolzle arched foot vase
« on: August 05, 2011, 04:28:48 PM »
Hi!
I have this ordinary Stolzle vase but it came with a disc inside featuring a king and queen/ Emperor/Empress. Could anyone kindly tell me who they are and why the disc should be with the vase? It was attached inside to the base and looks like it was made to fit. Any info of any sort would be very welcome.
Thanks, angel2

Looks like King George V and Queen Mary to me... (succeeded to the British throne 1910, crowned 1911)...
Both together... http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenton_sands/2961265002/
Queen Mary alone... http://www.superstock.co.uk/stock-photos-images/4069-6366

Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd

Thanks Anne!
Interesting! Why would they be in an Austrian Vase I wonder? The disc was firmly attached.

An interesting vase.

The Monarchies were/are vastly intertwined and often helped each other out.

From Wikipedia:

"Before the First World War, most of Europe was ruled by monarchs related to George, but during and after the war, the monarchies of Austria, Germany, Greece, and Spain, like Russia, fell to revolution and war. In March 1919, Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Lisle Strutt was dispatched on the personal authority of the King to escort the former Emperor Charles I of Austria and his family to safety in Switzerland.[84] In 1922, a Royal Navy ship was sent to Greece to rescue his cousins, Prince and Princess Andrew.[85]"
