Boris Yegdalov (the amber master) used to always say that the Amber Room 'would no sooner be finished than the original would be found'.

Daily Mail article regarding Amber Room.

Just read an article where a descendant of the man who's father had many artworks by famous artists since WWII says his father knew what happened to the amber room and where the amber is stored.

Thought I share.

Well, the headline describes him as a "weirdo", and goes on to say that even his own family thinks he is "not right in the head" (my words not theirs, just paraphrasing).  He lied about the art being destroyed in the bombing of Dresden.  I don't put much credence to his claim that he "can tell you were the Amber Room is". Especially since the answer of that might just be "The Amber Room is in ashes in the ruins of Konigsberg Castle."

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.
