    Background: While West German Chancellor Willy Brandt continued talks with the Shah of Iran and his advisors in Teheran, his wife last Monday (6 March) visited the Irani Crown Jewels in the Central Bank.

    She was shown many of the jewels worn by the Shahanshah and Queen Farah during the opulent coronation ceremonies on the 26th October 1967. One of the crowns -- that worn by Queen Farah -- was especially created by French jewellers for the occasion.

    SYNOPSIS: Teheran, where Mrs Brandt, wife of visiting West German Chancellor Willy Brandt, was shown the fabulous Irani Crown Jewels. Among them, Queen Farah of Iran's coronation robe, and train -- created especially for the occasion.

    Mrs Brandt took the opportunity to see the famous collection last Monday while her husband consulted with the Shah and advisors.

    The Pahlavi Crown -- made for the present Shah's father was the central point of the coronation ceremony in nineteen sixty-seven when the Shah himself lowered it onto his own head. He then crowned hiss wife Queen Farah.

    Mrs Brandt also saw the peacock Throne -- on which the Shah sat during the coronation. Precious woods overlaid with gold are studded with nearly thirty thousand gems, mainly emeralds and rubies. Mrs Brandt and her husband stayed in Teheran for two more days before returning home.
