1892 HAWAIIAN JEWELRY antique silver royal crown vtg iolani palace art pendant:
Worn in the throne room of Iolani Palace on January 29, 1892
House of Kalakaua. A giftfrom, or worn by,HHL (Her Highness Liliuokalani)onone of the most important days of her life: the day she stood onthe dais at the Foot of Her Throneandreceived congratulatory dignitaries from around the World. The event marked the 1st anniversary ofher peaceful & prosperous reign.
Liliuokalani's royal color was yellow and the Kamehameha/Kalakaua crown was reserved for royalty. The use of the crown (British)and her royal color suggest that the piece wascrafted underRoyal Warrant. No makers mark.
This remarkable piece came from an 'old money' Londonderry (Nutfield)New Hampshire estate where Liliuokalani's mother-in-law was born (John Dominis' mother). And with 100% accuracy we can claim (as documented by the January 30, 1892 Honolulu newspaper article found in our series of photos above) SOMEONE (most likely the queen!) wore thisbrooch in the throne room of Iolani Palace on January 29, 1892. This is as close as you're going to get to owning a piece of Queen Liliuokalani's jewelry!
