More and more exactly: Own handwork...

I guess it is something done by Anastasia Nikolaevna for one of the Empress's bazar: what is that? Could we see this work? Is is intriging!

How sweet. I t is a pity this is a dying art. My Mother would often spend hours with her needle work. I did a bit as a child bit was not very good as I simply did not have the patience. From the forum I see the Imperial Family were all very talented. I recall the cushions with the fish on them that I think the Empress did and they looked rather cook even today.

wish I owned the above

I was going to say the same thing. Most likely the item ended sold at one of her endless bazaars at Yalta.

No, there are no dates on the embroidery and I can agree that it is a beautiful work!
