The plate belonged to the donor's great grandmother, Emilie Monrad, wife of Bishop Ditlev Gothard Monrad. Bishop Monrad of the Lutheron church was also a well know scholar who became the Prime minister of Denmark . However his role ended suddenly after Denamrk lost the 1864 war to the German Confederation which led to him and his family to emigrate to New Zealand in 1866. They settled in Karere in the Manawatu but in 1869 Bishop Monrad and his wife decided to return to Denmark. Just before this he dontaed his collection of 600 prints of Eurpoean Masters to the Colonial Museum in Wellington (now Te Papa).
