Institutions, associations, and company boards presented magnificent birthday presents to Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria (1821–1912), one of the most well-known representatives of the House of Wittelsbach, on the occasion of his round birthdays in 1891, 1901, and 1911. As high-quality handcrafted works, they combine artistic techniques from goldsmithing to cut leather to watercolor painting. Their stylistic spectrum ranges from variants of historicism to Art Nouveau. These treasures, which are part of the holdings of the Bavarian National Museum, shed light on the vital cultural development during the span of time around 1900, also known as the "Prinzregentenzeit," or Regency period, and the magnificent celebrations of the birthday of a prince shortly before the end of the monarchy in Germany.
