Solicitation of Bids for New West Kingdom Heirs Coronets
Unto the Artisans and Populace of the Known World: The West Kingdom is soliciting bids for new Western Heirs Coronets.This is to replace the previous Coronets that were lost during COVID-19 lockdowns.
The new set of Heirs (Prince and Princess) coronets should reflect the rich history of the Kingdom. They must be designed to stand up to the rigorous travel schedule of the West Kingdom Heirs, who take multiple trips prior to stepping up as King and Queen. They should be low maintenance and durable, able to withstand rigorous use with minimal repair. Air travel should be factored into the design.
Depending on the bids received, commentary & feedback may be solicited from the populace, and updated bids may be requested.
The regalia committee will be taking bids from April 1, 2022 to May 31, 2022.

2) the materials that will be used
3) a description of the construction methods /process and /or period piece the coronets are based on
