Rosendal Palace, Djurgården

Rosendal Palace

http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q...parkenorg1.jpg

Rosendal Palace was built in the 1820s by architect Frederik Blom for King Karl XIV Johan, the first Bernadotte.
The Palace lies on the grounds of the Djurgården Hunting Park.
The Palace was intended to be an escape for the Royal Family from the formalities of court life at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

It was informative to learn that Fredrik Lidstromer was the primary architect of the construction of the first Rosendal Palace.
After the original palace burned down in 1819, Lidstromer created the initial drawings for the second Rosendal Palace.

The ‘Lantern Room’ (Lanterninen) was the most lavishly decorated room at the small summer palace Rosendal built by the architect Fredric Blom in 1823-27 for Carl XIV Johan. The Sèvres porcelain table in the centre was a gift from the French King Louis Philippe in 1840. The crystal chandelier was made in Stockholm by Reinhold Fredric Lindroth in 1831 after a design by Percier and Fontaine published in 1812.

My favourite crystal chandeliers at Rosendal is this elegant pair hanging in the Red Salon. They were made by Reinhold Fredric Lindroth in Stockholm in the late 1820s.

The Empire style is in Sweden also known as the Karl Johan style, after King Karl XIV Johan who was king of Sweden 1818–1844. It is characterized by furniture in mahogany, wall-to-wall carpeting and magnificent curtain arrangements in strong colors. Rosendal Palace, at Royal Djurgården in Stockholm, looks very much the same as it did during King Karl XIV Johan’s days which makes it a unique document of the European Empire style. The Red Salon, the Blue Salon, the Yellow Salon and the Green Salon are all witness to the importance of color for the interiors from this period.

The porphyry vase at Rosendal.
Karl XIV Johan owned from 1818 Elfdals Porphyrverk in Älvdalen. In the spring of 1823, he ordered a monumental vase from the Porphyry. This is a scaled-up copy of an antique vase found in Herculaneum, Italy. The boulder was mined in Gåsvarv and is estimated to have weighed about 100 tonnes, of which nine tenths were cut off. The finished vase weighs 9.3 tons. The porphyry vase at Rosendal is placed in the garden at Rosendal Palace.
