SKU: 20-143

$1,195.00

This is a fascinating framed collage of artifacts relating to Kaiser Wilhelm I (1797-1888). To begin, the framed collage measures 26″ x 29 1/2.” The framing is very high-quality but modern-day, not period. The frame displays a beautiful gilded molding that sets off the items within the frame quite handsomely. At the frame’s bottom is a brass plaque that states “Kaiser Wilhelm I 1797-1888.” Within the frame are three different windows that have been created to house three items. Each of the windows is double-matted to set off the contents even more attractively. To the far left is a front page newspaper dated 13 March 1888. The newspaper measures 20 1/4″ x 15,” and is from Bremen. It carries the story of the Kaiser’s death, along with key points of his life. On display at the top right is a high-quality, printed notice of a memorial service for the Kaiser by the “Deutschen Vereinen Londons (Germans United in/with London) on 24 March 1888. This measures 9 1/4″ x 7.” Finally, on the bottom right is Kaiser Wilhelm I’s formal portrait, measuring 7″ x 4 3/4.” It also displays his distinctive signature in black ink. This magnificent presentation deserves a special place in your home or office. [As this is a very large presentation, professional packing will be required to ensure safe delivery to its new owner. Shipping charges are dependent on the buyer’s location].
