This limited edition decoration was inspired by the magnificent gold and bejewelled crown owned and worn by Henry VIII and his three children. The original crown was decorated with 344 jewels and pearls, as well as 5 enamel figures and was known as 'the Tudor Imperial Crown'. The crown was worn by Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace in the Chapel Royal where we now display its re-creation. Royal crowns, orbs and sceptres are amongst the most powerful symbols of monarchy. In 1649, under the new Commonwealth Government, almost the entirety of the crown jewels including the Tudor Imperial Crown were inventoried and destroyed at the Tower of London. The frame surrounding the crown is inspired by the Tudor Chain of Office worn by Henry VIII in many of his famous portraits. The chain symbolises the power of office and noble men would wear copies of this to show their loyalty to the king. This beautiful 2014 hanging decoration has been made exclusively for Historic Royal Palaces and is hand crafted in England. It has enamel and crystal embellishments and is 24ct gold plated. It is supplied complete with a gift box and historical notes.
