Eidsvoll 1814

Faithful and true until Dovre falls

16.03.2014

In 1814, 112 delegates met at Eidsvoll to declare Norway’s independence, establish a constitution and elect a king. Intense negotiations and frequent clashes over six weeks followed, ending with ratification on the 16th May. This was signed on the 17th, a day when the men of Eidsvoll shook hands and swore to be faithful and true until Dovre falls.

Our work for Eidvsoll, sold exclusively in the museum shop, features three distinctive hand crafted lettering styles inspired by three periods, from 1814 to present day, and is proudly paired with our national colour palette.
