Iolani Palace 2019 Ornament
We’re thrilled to announce the 2019 Palace Shops ornament, inspired by a helmet plate belonging to the Prince’s Own, a uniformed group of the Hawaiian Kingdom. The helmet plate is the ornamental design located on the front of a helmet. This plate designates the wearer’s nationality and organization, and is commonly used among military and police forces, with the design featuring symbolism that’s meaningful to said group.
The Prince’s Own was a volunteer artillery unit with its roots dating back to 1857. As you’ll see depicted in the ornament, the bronze helmet plate bears the letter “K” for King Kalakaua and is inscribed with the Hawaiian national motto: Ua Mau ke Ea o ka Aina i ka Pono, or “the life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.” The design also features garland as well as cannons and cannon balls.
The helmet plate was donated to FOIP in 2019 by The Helen Ladd Thompson Revocable Living Trust. The family are descendants of Anton Rosa, who served in numerous governmental positions and most notably as Attorney General for King Kalakaua. Mahalo to the family for their generous donation.
This limited-edition ornament is exclusive to the Palace, and will be available in September at our Palace and Gallery Shops for $25. You can also pre-order an ornament for $20 starting now by calling (808) 532-1050 or emailing email@example.com.
