MARRIAGE OF PRINCESS MARIE LOUISE OF SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN | Princess Aribert of Anhalt

A necklace with fine pearl and diamond clusters fitted in a velvet case and bearing the inscription, "Presented to her Highness Princess Louise, Princess Aribert of Anhalt, with respectful good wishes from Berkshire friends, July 6th 1891"  is pictured above.
The presentation was made by Lord Wantage at Cumberland Lodge, who said a few appropriate words when he give the necklace to the Princess. Prince Christian replied and the Princess even said a few words of thanks.
Princess Louise's pearl and diamond cluster necklace, she wore it on a picture with the trefoil or clover tiara, and Aribert's pearl and diamond cluster pin were manufactured by Messrs. Bracher and J Sydenham of Reading, silversmiths to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales.

Princess Louise (Marie Louise) and her family had a deep association with the county of Berkshire. Initially, Prince Christian and Princess Helena lived at Frogmore House and, when the Prince was appointed  Ranger of Windsor Great Park , the family lived at Cumberland Lodge. These Berkshire homes allowed Princess Helena to fulfill her duties to her mother but did permit some private family life. Over the years, strong links were made to the county which was reflected in the gifts not only given to Princess Louise but also to her parents to celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.

 

The Nurses' Present to Princess Louise of Schleswig-Holstein


Yesterday [26 June 1891], at Buckingham Palace, Princess Louise of Schleswig-Holstein was presented with a diamond crescent and a set of Lord Tennyson's poems, subscribed for as a wedding gift by the nurses of the United Kingdom.

Seven ladies formed the deputation, including, Miss Durham, Lady Superintendant of the Convalescent Home at Freshwater; Miss Piggott, matron of the Preston Royal Infirmary; and representatives from Ireland, Scotland, and the Colonies.
The volumes, which are of handsome paper, were presented by the publishers. They are handsomely bound in vellum, and bear the monogram of the Princess. It was felt that if the Poet-Laureate could be induced to write some lines in the first volume, it would give additional interest to the presentation; and Dr. G. W. Potter, acting editor of the Hospital, sent down the volumes to Freshwater. Lord Tennyson, who for the past two years has benefitted much by the skilful nursing of Mrs (sic) Durham, readily complied with the request.
The inscription is to the effect that the volumes and crescent are given by the sisters, matrons, and nurses of the United Kingdom to the Princess Louise of Schleswig-Holstein on the occasion of her marriage to Prince Aribert as a mark of the appreciation which they entertain for her Royal mother and the gratitude that they feel for the interest she has always shown in their work.
Princess Christian had a genuine interest in nursing and was appointed the President of the British Nurses' Association in 1888.
In the painting from 1897, the Princess wore a crescent brooch, but it's not confirmed if it's the crescent given by the Nurses.
