A superb pair of porcelain plates, made for Princess Louise ( Louise Caroline Alberta) GCVO, GBE, RRC , GCSTJ, VA, Duchess of Argyll, Vice Regal Consort of Canada. Daughter of Queen Victoria and Albert. Exceptional delicacy and translucency. I wonder, as a sculptor, could she have designed these? (See statue she carved, of Queen Victoria).
Louise was born at Buckingham Palace. As a young woman she acted as Victoria's secretary. A talented sculptor and a supporter of the feminist movement, she later married John Campbell, Marquess of Lorne, (heir to the Dukedom of Argyll-Inverary Castle), at Windsor Castle. In 1871 Lorne was appointed Governor of Canada and she became Viceregal Consort. They took up residence in Rideau Hall in Ottawa. The province of Alberta is named after her, as is Mount Alberta and four regiments. Many thanks. Please see my other quality porcelains.
