Juliana, was queen of the Netherlands from 1948 to 1980. In 1946, her mother, Queen Wilhelmina, appointed Maria Antonia governess of then princess Juliana. Soon after, with the queen and princesses in attendance, Maria married Walraven Jacob baron van Heeckeren, who was appointed private secretary to Queen Juliana in 1950. The van Heecherens were members of one of the Netherlands oldest noble families, serving the queens of the Netherlands from 1840 to 1956. The close personal relationship that existed between the queen and the baroness is evident in the gift of this fine chest. In whos reign this piece came into possession of the royal family has not been discovered, but the remarkable fine condition is evidence that it enjoyed a quiet, protected life, as would be expected among the treasures of a royal palace.
AN ALMOST IDENTICAL 15TH CENTURY CHEST CAN BE SEEN IN DAS MOBELWERK, BY HERMANN SCHMITZ, PG 43.
