Footnotes

  • Hedvig Eleonora of Holstein-Gottorp [b.1636, d.1715], was Queen of Sweden from 1654 to 1660. Married to Charles X, she was given Strömsholm estate, by the king, in 1654 and started to build a castle on the site in 1656, two years after becoming dowager Queen. She became Queen Regent from her husband's death in 1660 to 1672 when her son reached majority.

    A similar plate is in the Collection of the National Museum of Sweden, [item number NMK BS 2556].

    Double striking was strictly forbidden by the London Company and Jacques Taudin was called to answer for his 'crime' in front of the Pewterers' Court on 18 June, 1667. In his defence Taudin argued he struck twice on his better quality pieces, which he called 'double refined', but was nevertheless 'charged to desist in this practise' [which he probably ignored]. Labels giving the pewterers' names or even 'LONDON' were not allowed before the London Company's Court orders of 1687 and 1690.
