Late 1800s

Philippine Tatler Homes - - STYLE -

Lud­wig II was King of Bavaria from 1864 un­til his death in 1886. Known as a pas­sion­ate cas­tle builder with high debts, he is also de­scribed as a fairy-tale king. This wash set was made ex­clu­sively for the Neuschwanstein Cas­tle. The ex­u­ber­ant colours and gold are rem­i­nis­cent of grand litur­gi­cal ob­jects from the middle ages and are tes­ti­mony to the os­ten­ta­tious

fur­nish­ings in Lud­wig II’S cas­tles.
