Do pieces from the ceiling still exist?

Joanna

Sadly the ceiling burned too in 1944.
The Carrare marble fireplace disapeared too  : you can see it here in 1917 and 1942-43 . The Lyons Hall was still intact . 1944 was the horrific year for the palace.

Thank you Joanna !

I had never seen these pictures , it's so sad ... :(

The spanish blue division have been very harmful towards Tsarskoie SElo and Peterhof .
I am sure that numerous treasures of these palaces are again in Spain ...(like books of imperials librairies , clocks , etc..)
