Maria Pavlovna (Aunt Meekheny) and Vladimir Alexandrovich - they like imperial theater (especially Mariinsky ) very much and they went Mariinsky one time or twice in the week.
The both of us every week met with the Director of Imperial Theaters in order to discuss the further development of opera and ballet.

In some way you are right! She looks meaner in the face!

Miechen seems fond of the pearl necklace set she wears here. Are the drops that are attached to the necklace the same ones she uses to drape from her kokoshnik in the one photo? Were they removable or did she have 'extras' to use? Also does anyone know if this was the famous pearl set that was left to one of her children (Helen?)?

i'm pretty sure the drops are from the necklace.   i've never understood though, with her entire collection as options, why she would constantly choose a necklace that, while very pretty & valuable,  doesn't lay well (at all) on the lines of her court costume....        it was obviously one of her favorite pieces, though.  


btw,
the images of her in mourning are from THE LAST TSAR (i can't remember the name of the author at the moment...but it's a russian lady; printed in russia, but in the english language.).

Thanks so much for that. I don't care much for the design of the necklace either but oh! those pearls look nice.

Was the book The Last Tsar about Kyril since it has photos of Miechen? I can't image a N&A book giving her more than a passing reference given their relationship.

your question got me thinking --- and i realised you were probably right (unless the book was about the Romanov clan, there'd be very little of MP showing-up in a work on N&A).....so, the answer must be that i had gotten my books confused.      

so i checked, and lo-and-behold, the image of MP actually came from a book called ST.PETERSBURG: PORTRAIT OF AN IMPERIAL CITY.

it covers the various strata of st.p life.     the imperial family, aristocratic society, the growing "middle-class", the transplanted peasants & workers; as well as schools, factories, the ballet & other Arts (painting, sculpture, literature, etc).  so......

aneeeeway --   ;)
the image shows MP presiding over a meeting of the directors of the Imperial Academy of Art.   she inherited her position as President, from her late husband, for whom she still wears mourning.

from Danjel's great site






It's been referred to as the Boucheron BOUCHERON Daisy Leaves and Flowers Tiara as well as the Princess Abalmalek Tiara. It was inherited by Olga's son Alexander and his wife Barbara has been seen in it. It's a large diamond tiara of a scrollwork design centered with pale yellow diamonds. It was given some extra height by the row of collett diamonds at the base.

It was Princess Abamalek's who left it to Paul who gave it to his wife Olga and now it belongs to their son and daughter-in-law. It's the same tiara just referred to by different names.
