Queen Mary’s Collecting – A Tea Time Talk with the BADA Friends
25 November, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
10 select spots are on offer from our friends at BADA to join lecturer Nicholas Merchant via Zoom. His topic will be Queen Mary’s love of collecting “her one great hobby.” Enjoying her legendary passion, Queen Mary worked tirelessly to augment and catalogue the Royal Collections. Indeed an invitation to a friend’s home was often a lesson in diplomacy if HM spied a particular bibelot she coveted!
The wife of King George V, Queen Mary was at birth a royal poor relation in a household short of money due to her mother’s unbridled extravagance. The daughter of Queen Victoria’s cousin and her husband Franz, Duke of Teck, Princess Mary was to see her life altered when the family escaped to Italy in poverty exile. However there she honed a fine taste and eye for artistic beauty. This guided her later in life when her marriage to the King definitely reversed her fortunes. Come discover what and how she collected and why the Royal Family owes her a debt for her zeal for antiques.
