In honor of Father’s Day, four of our favorite pieces designed by Prince Albert for Queen Victoria. The most apropos for today is the Scottish thistle (upper left), set with Princess Vicky’s first “milk tooth.” The story goes that Albert very kindly pulled it right out for her, such a proud papa! 😳💪💞
Happy Father’s Day to all you wonderful dads! #fathersday #queenvictoria #victorian #victoriaandalbert #jewelryhistory

Exteriors of Osborne House, Isle of Wight, England. Former royal residence built between 1845 and 1851 for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat. Prince Albert designed the house himself in the style of an Italian Renaissance palazzo in conjunction with builder Thomas Cubitt. Queen Victoria died at Osborne House in January 1901. Following her death, the house became surplus to royal requirements and was given to the state, with a few rooms being retained as a private museum to Queen Victoria. “It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot” Queen Victoria of Osborne House
