Het Loo Palace (Dutch: Paleis Het Loo, meaning "The Woods Palace") is a palace in Apeldoorn, Netherlands. The symmetrical Dutch Baroque building was designed by Jacob Roman and Johan van Swieten and was built between 1684 and 1686 for stadtholder-king William III and Mary II of England. The garden was designed by Claude Desgotz. The palace was a residence of the House of Orange-Nassau from the 17th century until the death of Queen Wilhelmina in 1962. The building was renovated between 1976 and 1982. Since 1984, the palace has been a state museum open for the general public, showing interiors with original furniture, objects and paintings of the House of Orange-Nassau. The building is a rijksmonument and is among the Top 100 Dutch heritage sites.

Condition / Notes: This plate shows beautifully with strong lines and bright, unfaded coloring. There is some scattered foxing/marks and some edgewear, especially along the bottom edge, including a tear that penetrates into the bottom caption.
