Norwegian chandelier

The chandelier in the Gala Hall was a present to Prince Christian (X) from his mother, the then Crown Princess Lovisa, who gave it to him in 1903.

The chandelier was bought at auction after having hung for many years in Oslo Castle, for which it was made. Originally there were four of these chandeliers, but one has been lost, and the other two, which also came into Danish ownership, today hang in Christiansborg. The Norwegian Royal Family has since had copies made for the castle in Oslo to replace the originals.
