Hi,I found in Zeller auction this portrait by Swedinsh painter Johan Hall!It lloks like this could be Josephine von Leuchtenberg wearing a swedish black court robe,but I am not sure!This tiara is very similar to the one Queen Viktoria of Sweden-Baden had and since I don't know much about tiara provenances I would like some help of our experts :-) in order to solve who this lady could be?

Yes, the tiaras look similar but I think they are different in fact...The lady itself has a slight resemblance to Queen Josephine though I am not sure.

A postcard showing a bridal carriage, evidently part of a series; I have it marked down as being connected with the wedding of Prince and Princess August Wilhelm, but I am not certain about that. Does anyone know?

An interesting postcard which was sent to Prince Waldemar of Prussia, the eldest son of Prince Heinrich. It must have been written either by his father ot his mother; can anyone please identify the handwriting? Heinrich can be seen on the card with his brother at an occasion which must have had a special significance for him, the induction into the navy of Adalbert, the only one the Kaiser's sons to enter that service. It would be nice to know if the card was actually sent at the time of that event, and if Waldemar was prevented by the illness that is mentioned in it from attending.The card is dated May 20th 1901; does anyone know if Adalbert entered the navy at that time? Also, I cannot decipher the whole of the final sentence ('Please send me xxxx and a card"). Your help on any of these points would be much appreciated.

Are we sure it was sent to Waldemar? It's odd that the writing would be in English.

Yes, it is certainly addressed to Waldemar and the address and cancellations are consistent with that; and it comes from an Adelnachlass containing other material deriving from royal sources. It was not unusual for members of the Imperial family to talk or write to one another in English; and on a postcard that might provide an element of privacy.

Possibly Furstin Friederike von Anhalt-Zerbst (1744-1827), nee Princess of Anhalt-Bernburg, spouse of Furst Friedrih August von Anhalt-Zerbst (brother of the Empress Catherine II).
