Emerald jewelry consisting of a diadem, a necklace, two bracelets, a brooch with a pendant, a brooch with three pendants, a brooch in the shape of a cross, a pair of earrings, a small pendant.

On Thursday the festivities for the marriage of Princess Margarethe began with a grand court before their Majesties; This is followed by a ball on the 20th, a family dinner on the 22nd, a gala dinner on the 23rd and a gala dinner at the Empress Friedrich’s on the 24th. M. The civil marriage will take place in the palace of the Empress Friedrich, the church wedding in the castle chapel.
Numerous high guests are expected in Berlin. The Russian heir to the throne meets on 23 d. My; the voyage of the King of Denmark still seems uncertain, because of the blocking of the crossing by ice.

On the evening before the marriage of her youngest daughter, the Empress Friedrich had brought together the large number of family members who had rushed here for the special day to a gala family dinner.
The main table, at which the distinguished guests dined, was set in the large, magnificent dining room, which was filled with art treasures. The tapestry of the walls, which bear large golden flowers and arabesques on a golden silk background, are here and there covered with long hanging tapestries; the narrow wall opposite the entrance is separated from the adjoining room by a large red velvet drapery and decorated with costly silver shields, bowls and dividers. Right at the entrance is a work of art, a silver anniversary present, a clock of great value that serves as a resting point for a delightful group of marbles.
The table itself bore the gift which Queen Victoria of England had given to the Emperor and Empress Frederick in front of their Majesties‘ seatssilver wedding , three showpieces made of solid silver, serving as candelabra. The middle main piece depicts a hunting procession, a lady on horseback pulling out to hunt, with two dogs on a leash, which trot past a thick tree trunk, from whose branches the candlesticks rise. The side pieces are groups of trees with candelabra. Graduating in size, a number of other candlesticks, only in silver, lined up at the two ends of the table. In between there were display devices, fruit and flower bowls.
Threads of green leaves wound their way around the individual implements over the snow-white linen.
The whole was outshined by a mighty chandelier.

The bridal couple, Prince Friedrich Karl von Hessen in uniform, ate at the center of the table.Princess Margarethe in a delicate yellow silk robe richly trimmed with yellow feathers. To the right of the bride sat the reigning Empress, next to her Landgrave Alexander Friedrich von Hessen, to the left of the bridegroom the Empress Friedrich, dressed entirely in black silk, and next to her the King of Saxony in the blue uniform of the 10th Dragoons.

The Emperor’s seat was next to his sister, Princess Margarethe, opposite between the Grand Duchess of Baden and the groom’s mother, Landgravine Anna von Hessen, whose table neighbors were the Grand Duke of Baden and the Duke of Edinburgh. Since not all 60 guests had space at the table, a second table was set in the adjoining small dining room.
