Rosersberg Palace, Rosersberg

Rosersberg Palace


Rosersberg Palace was built in the 1630s, by the Oxenstierna family. Rosersberg became a Royal Palace in 1762, when it was given to Gustav III's younger brother Karl XII by the state.
The Palace was named after original owner, Gabriel Bengtsson Oxenstierna's mother, who came from the prestigious Tre Rosor family.
King Karl XIV Johan, the first Bernadotte, and his consort Queen Desideria used the Palace as a summer residence, and were the last royals to use Rosersberg as a residence.
Following the Queen's death in 1860, the Palace was given to the Swedish Infantry, who used the Palace as a musketry school until the 1960s.
The Civil Defence then took over the Palace, and to this day Rosersberg is used by the Swedish Rescue Services Agency.

The translation of Tre Rosar is Three Roses.

After 1792 the Rosersberg Palace acquired a number of important new interiors, typified by the Orange Drawing Room, the Red Drawing Room, and the Hogland Room.
On the left hand side of Rosersberg Palace is an English garden.
The garden's winding paths were commissioned by Prince Karl (later Karl III) of Sweden around 1800.

This is dining at its finest.
I like the forks with the Pontecorvo emblem.
Are there any other objects such as furniture which also have the Pontecorvo emblem that Karl XIV Johan and Désireé brought with them to Sweden?

The royal court put just to their Youtube a great video of Rosersberg Palace.
"Among Sweden's Royal Palaces Rosersberg is the best kept secret. Time has stood still. The rooms are almost untouched from the time 1795-1860 with well-preserved interiors and collections. Rosersberg Palace was built in 1634-38 by Gabriel Bengtsson Oxenstierna. He gave the Palace its name after his mother's family name Tre Rosor".

Photos from the Instagram of Håkan Groth, a photographer and antique dealer and expert.
One of a pair of torchères at Rosersberg Palace crowned by griffins. They were made by Pehr Ljung c 1800 for the guard's room at Rosersberg Palace country home to Gustaf III's younger brother Prince Carl (1748-1818). He was the Duke of Södermanland which has a rampant griffin in its coat of arms. Carl was also Grand Master of the Swedish Freemasons and the griffin symbolises the vigilant guardian. The griffin became a popular motif in Sweden in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

An overdoor with a pair of griffins in the bedroom of Prince Carl's wife Charlotte. The room was decorated by Pehr Ljung in 1801-02 after a design by Carl himself.

In 1809 a coup d'etat in Sweden resulted in King Gustaf IV Adolph being deposed and exiled with his wife and children. He was replaced by his old uncle, the former regent who now became King Carl XIII. His finances improved and he had work done to his country seat Rosersberg outside Stockholm. The pair of griffins in the photo were modelled in wax by Pehr Ljung. The intention was to cast a large pair of these in bronze to be placed to guard the entrance to the palace. This sadly didn't happen.

When Prince Carl of Sweden (1748-1818) decorated his audience room in his summer Palace Rosersberg around 1807 he had no throne but two sofas of this design instead. The griffin was in his coat of arms, but the first sofas and armchairs of this design had been made in 1803 by the chair maker Ephraim Ståhl. Carl became King Carl XIII in 1809, but kept the sofas and didn't add a throne as could have been expected.
