Friday Flashback (on a Thursday*): Treasure on Display

Photo: Liechtensteiner Vaterland
Prince Hans-Adam II and Princess Marie as well as Hereditary Prince Alois, Prince Max and the late Prince Wenzel pose for a picture in front of the Golden Carriage of Prince Joseph Wenzel. The photo was taken during the opening of an exhibition about the life and work of Prince Joseph Wenzel I of Liechtenstein (1696-1772) which was opened in July 1990. The exhibition was the first and (as far as I know) only time the carriage was on display in the Principality. It can now be seen at the Sala Terrena of the Gartenpalais in Vienna.

[* As we seem to be having a pretty quiet Thursday on our hands and I'm sure you don't mind...]


  1. Well, they wasted no time! :) Nice news for the family. Congrats.

  2. Indeed, real "competition" for baby Guillaume who was born 38 weeks and a few days after his parents' wedding in 1981.

  3. Wonderful news! Very happy for them.
