The Prince, the Duke and the candlestick maker......
This wonderful old handmade parchment document found it`s way to me this week.
Gorgeous old frothy edges parchment dated 1763.
It is a contract between a Prince who also holds endless other titles, a Duke who again is titled to the hilt and a lowly candlestick maker!!
Four pages of wonderful script with amazing signatures.
It looks as if the candlestick maker was renting a property from the Prince and the Duke.....how I would love the full story behind this treasure!
A la prochaine
