The Chinese Pavilion in the park of the royal palace at Drottningholm [on the outskirts of Stockholm.] King Adolf Fredrik surprised Queen Lovisa Ulrika on her birthday in 1753 with a small Chinese pleasure palace. . . The original wooden building was replaced in the 1760s by a more permanent one, which today contains one of the finest European rococo interiors with chinoiserie.
