Do you know what the object is in Eduard Hau’s 1870 watercolor?

And little Masha herself



Oh my this is rare. Now I am wondering if both photos were taken in Alexandra's dressing room in the Alexander Palace and that is the door to her bath.

I think it is Marie and Anastasia's bedroom at the Alexander Palace--if so, a rare view indeed! The decor looks right, and Anastasia *appears* to be sitting at the desk. I can't access the photos Bryndis posted of Olga and Tatiana's bedroom at the moment, but I believe theirs has similar/identical wallpaper/tiles along one wall.

The screen is an odd shape that I have never seen before.

Amazing photo, thank you. It looks like it was taken in the Lower Dacha in Peterhof. The cabinet looks familiar.

Tsarskoe Selo Palaces / Re: The Amber Room of the Catherine Palace

Joanna, the photo you posted in your link above is the first I've ever seen of the Amber Room with its windows.  It's stunning.  Thanks so much for providing this new perspective (at least for me) of this magnificent room.

I am in awe of the photographer's shot of the room. I had never realized the amber room was so beautiful with its ceiling, doors and windows.

Baby Tatiana

A rare photograph, thank you.

I am curious if it was taken in the Winter Palace. The chair looks like a Voltaire and may have been either in the Gothic or Cupids drawing rooms on the 1st floor.
