Chances are you will meet royalty on a visit to Holland this spring or summer, albeit in the form of classic blue-and-white Delftware. Last month the Gemeentemuseum in the Hague announced it had acquired two rare Defltware figurines. The Dutch figurine flower holders represent King William III and his wife and cousin, Queen Mary. 

The flower holders, which measure 42.5 cm in height, were separated for 40 years while in the hands of separate private collections. With the landmark acquisition, the Gemeentemuseum guarantees preservation of Holland’s royal heritage.
