Spotted in Oxford Street by Elizabeth.
This magnificent map of the Netherlands on a fine china plate came via Reinder Storm (of course). It is from a collection in the Rijksmuseum.
These plates reflect the period when the Netherlands and Belgium formed the United Kingdom of the Netherlands (1815-1830). The kingdom consisted of 17 provinces plus the grand duchy of Luxembourg. The gold decoration is in the neoclassical style. On the upper edge are the arms of each province in gold on the blue border; the arms of the United Kingdom are on the lower side. Today the Netherlands consists of 12 provinces.https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/search/objects?q=united+kingdom+of+the+netherlands&p=3&ps=12&st=Objects&ii=6#/BK-2010-15-7,30
Last year on Valentines Day, Europa Technologies shared this picture of Tavarua Island, Fiji by Warren Vick, their founder.
I thought it was such a great image that I decided to republish it this year. #Perfect!
