Archduchess Margarethe Klementine Maria of Austria 1870 -1955, was a member of the Hungarian line of the House of Habsburg and an Archduchess of Austria by birth. Archduchess Margarethe married Albert, 8th Prince of Thurn und Taxis in 1890, she was also the younger sister of Marie Dorothea Duchess of Orléans.
In 1908 Fürstin Margarethe was pictured with the large diamond choker setted with 6 emerald and 6 ruby cabochons, as well as 2 pearls in the center. This dog collar was made by the workshop of Gebr Kreuter Hanau. Probably some more painted versions of the choker are presented, and the border with two similar lines of diamonds with some diamonds between are made at least.
The orginal sketch on top, of the important Emerald and Ruby Collier de Chien, is from the Archiv of the Gebr. Kreuter, Hanau, now in the possession of the www.grafische-sammlung-stern.com
Special thanks to Stefan Stern for his great support.
