Throne for audience

Armchair with silver covering. Made by A.F. Holling in Copenhagen, 1740, for Christian VI’s Audience Chamber at Christiansborg Palace.

Silverfurniture where of course symbols of power and great wealth, and as such they where indispensable in the baroque quarters of any prince. The majority of the exhibited furniture where moved in 1740, to the new residence of the absolute monarchs, Christiansborg. After a fire in 1794 they where, however, spared and moved to Rosenborg.
