      Actually, this is:
      The crown of Christian IV

      The Crown of King Christian IVThe crown was made by Didrik Fyren in Odense helped by the Nuremberg goldsmith Corvinius Saur in the years 1595-1596 for the coronation of Christian IV. It is made of gold, enamel, table cut gemstones and pearls and weighs 2895 g.

      Each of the seven points is decorated on the outside with allegorical figure of the king's ruling functions and virtues. On the inside the points are decorated with coats of arms of parts of the realm.

      It was used for the last time at the 1648 coronation of Frederick III.
