A couple of days ago, I ordered this book after I have read a review of it.
The book:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1928825036/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

The review:
http://www.directarticle.org/Book_reviews.pdf

The book is called What became of Peter's dream? Court culture in the reign of Nicholas II. It is about the Slavophile culture Nicholas II created at his court. The focus of the book is to you all well-known 1903 costume ball. This ball was of course the epitome of the traditional Russian culture at the tsar's court.

Has anyone of you read it or would like to comment on this book?

There are topics on Favourite Royals and royals you dislike, so I thought I would start one on your Ten Favourite Royal Tiaras all-time. I know a lot of us are interested in royal jewels  :) My list will be posted later !

Juvelerne I det Danske kongehus

This book is about the jewels in the collection of the Danish royal family. It's said it is mere a photo book, and in Danish. The subject where it concerns on is most interesting I think.  Does anyone of you own this book and is it worth buying it ?

I think it's a good idea we should start a topic on the jewels of the Danish royal family, they have a fabulous collection.  :) I know little of them and I would be glad to learn more on them !

The Windsors / Devonshire House Ball 1897

A time ago I saw a photo of the Duchess of Teck (Princess Mary Adelaide) in the costume she wore at the Devonshire House Ball in 1897. I thought it would be interesting to post here some photos of the guests in their costumes. Who were there ????

Here you can have a look at some of the photos in the book:

The Windsors / The Family of Queen Victoria by L.R.Tuxen

I've always wondered who the figures are on this painting, the family of queen Victoria by Laurits Regner Tuxen in 1887. Can anyone help with identifying ?

Rulers Prior to Nicholas II / Family of Emperor Pavel I
« on: July 08, 2008, 12:55:53 PM »
I like to found out more about the family of tsar Paul I. He was father of nine surviving children. He doesn't seems to be a loving father... So how was his relationship with his children ?

I'd like to start a topic about the toilet set made at Sevres in 1782 on the order of queen Marie Antoinette for a present to Maria Feodorvna. It's in the state bedroom in Pavlovsk Palace. This is from the online book about the palace:

"The set comprises over sixty pieces of "jewelled Sevres" painted in gold over underglaze blue with classical subjects, and having applied gold decorations of the utmost delicacy, with tiny drops of coloured enamels fused onto the surface to imitate precious stones."

Does anyone have pictures or more info on this toilet set ? I've never seen a pic of it before..
