Chateau de Brumagne was built halfway the 18th
century in classicist style. Characteristic for this style is the rather sober
appearance on the outside, which is countered by the sophisticated finishings
on the inside. A consuming fire in 2001 destroyed most of this finishing. The
oak panelling in several rooms was burnt to a cinder and the wallpaintings by
Piat Sauvage were washed away by the subsequent extinguishing waters. The
beautiful, detailed stucco by the famous Moretti brothers, dating back to 1760,
however is still visible under the fire damage. The castle that was owned by
several big names in Belgium’s political history, was also a favourite refuge
for the late King Albert I and his wife Queen Elisabeth. During the interbellum
they stayed here on multiple occasions. The king, a passionate rock climber,
fell to his death in 1934 in the vicinity of this castle.
Manufactured by Royal Gunworks Belgium c.1889 for the Rosebud Indian Agency of the Sioux reservation in South Dakota. 12 gauge centerfire, twin barrels, brass tack decorated, police badge plate on the stock. I just learned that reservations have their own police force, the more you know.
can you post some pics of tiaras worn by ladies with short hair?
There are a lot of tiara wearers with short hair especially if we consider all of them from the 1920s until now. I just chose one person from each of the current European monarchies but there are many more.
