Pencil "King of the House"

A beautiful gift for someone or for yourself, with ironic intent, but also with the historical allusion, will remember you your beautiful visit to Berlin and the Prussian palaces. The pencil is adorned with a pencil topper in the form of the small kings crown, which recalls primary about the famous Prussian crown with its particular royal jewels.
The Prussian Crown Jewels
The royal regalia "Prussian Crown Jewels", consist of two crowns, an orb and sceptre, were used during the coronation of the Prussian monarchs from the House of Hohenzollern. Since 1871, the foundation of the German Empire, the King of Prussia became German Emperor, and these regalia were still remaining, but the crown existed only in the heraldic version, because the German Empire not used the crown. They no longer used as the position of King of Prussia, while it was a title of minor importance compared to the new role as German Emperor.
In contrast with the lavish, heavily bejewelled crowns of other monarchies (e.g. British, Russian), the Prussian crown jewels were sometimes described as "rather plain", what you see also on this pencil.
