King Olav V embroidery

Embroideries with royal subjects are not an unusual sight, but still nice to see! The embroideries pictured above were made in connection with King Olav V of Norway's 75th birthday in 1978 (photo 1) and his 80th birthday in 1983 (photo 2 - a pity the photo quality was not better) and are displayed at Glomstad Guesthouse in Øyer municipality not far from the Olympic City of Lillehammer.

I don't think this King Harald V purse is for sale, but have to say that at least the embroidery is nicely done! The blog Linens and Royals shows photos of King George VI coronation samplers and has links to other embroidery-themed articles.
