Queen Liliuokalani vtg hawaiian jewelry antique iolani palace sterling silver:
Worn in the throne room of Iolani Palace on January 29, 1892
House of Kalakaua. A giftfrom, or worn by, Queen Liliuokalanionone 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.
HHL ~ Her Highness Liliuokalani. Liliuokalani's royal color was yellow and the Kamehameha/Kalakaua crown was reserved for royalty. The use of the crownand her royal color suggest that the piece wascrafted underRoyal Warrant. No makers mark.
Thiscame fromthe Boston area ofLondonderry (Nutfield)New Hampshire where Liliuokalani's mother-in-law was born (John Dominis' mother). We believe the two most logical ways it ended up in her in-laws' territory is: 1). Liliuokalanienclosed it in a letter shewrote to one of her East Coastin-laws (John Dominus had just passed away, August of 1891). Or, 2). One of her in-laws received it in person when they traveled to Honolulu to attendthe queen'sone year anniversary.
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!
