I.e. plaster casts of the clay busts that Thorvaldsen had executed of King
Frederik 6. and his family during his sojourn in Denmark 1819 – 1820. Thorvaldsen was to use these so-called original models to carve the busts in marble, and therefore they were sent to him in Rome. The busts of the royal family were: King Frederik 6., A859, Queen Marie Sophie Frederikke, A192, Princess Vilhelmine, A194, Princess Caroline, A193 and Christian (8.) Frederik’s son Prince Frederik (7.), A199.
