Wittelsbach State and Ceremonial Carriages, Hardback Book

Wittelsbach State and Ceremonial Carriages Hardback



The Nymphenburg Castle Marstallmuseum is one of the largest internationally known collections of historic state and ceremonial carriages.

The Marstall exhibits range from the Louis XIV period, to work by the Strasbourg master coach builder Johann Christian Ginzrot, culminating in a made for bavarian 'fairy-tale monarch', Ludwig II, which were entirely gilt and lavishly fitted out with exquisite embroidery and furs.

Two volumes (plates and text) representing the first complete survey of the Munich state carriages.

Recently researched and written in collaboration with the Bavarian Administration of State Castles, Gardens and Lakes.

This set is a fantastic overview from baroque carriages to the early automobiles.
