I have a number of fotos gleaned from the Polfoto image sale site. I do not know te legalities of sending them on. They seem to have been taken when it was empty of furnishings and before it's becoming a medical institution. The East West motto over the arts and crafts era fireplace is visible.

Joanna, loved the "happy snaps" including the one of Reval (Tallinn, Estonia) which I just got back from and saw the same view on the ferry as it arrived with us from Helsinki! Thanks for providing this link! Melissa K.

It is possible to search the POLFOTO site freely in English. I used the words Klampenborg, Dyrehaven, Bellevue, and the Danish word for empress(kjserinde I think). Sorry to be so late in reply. Cheers.

I haven't seen those. Sigh and hint.  I imagine they furnished the house with things that were their personal items either by gift purchase or inheritance. The Royal Ontario Museum has a huge 18th century silver teapot  from her. Royalties seem to have a very definte idea even today as to what belongs to the crown and what they can call their stuff.

I am sorry to tell you it is not a Veedorree subject, but seems to have been a 1909 present(first wedding?) from Queen Alexandra and Maria Feo to Grand Duchess Alexandrovna. It seems to be a personal possession that did survive transportation and exile to arrive in Canada quite naturally. Here is the URL:

I will try to be more accurate. The ROM net listings doesn't mention any other objects. I believe the maker Michaelsen is now considered among the great silversmiths internationally.

 A Danish user told us that Hvidøre is pronounced "Vih-deer"

Amadeo, Hvidøre ( now a Conference Center for Novo Nordisk Pharmaceuticals) is indeed near Copenhagen. It’s located in Klampenborg, now a Northern suburb of Copenhagen, on the shore of the Øresund (the straight between Denmark and Sweden). It’s a 20 minute train-ride from downtown Copenhagen.

I was wondering if anyone knew who, besides Alexandra and Maria Feodorovna, had rooms at Hvidore?

I know that Alexandra had a billiard room created for Edward VII. I was wondering if anyone like Miss Knollys, Sir Probyn, Toria, Princess Obolensky, Countess Mengden, or anybody else who were close to one of the sisters had a room or rooms reserved for them in the villa.

Thanks!

I have always been curious about Hvidore and how the former empress lived during her final years.  Naturally, after the grand palaces of Russia this was certainly a change.  However, did she feel happy at Hvidore?  Did she consider it a mansion (as it surley was and is)?  Did she feel it befitted her station in life?

Also, any additional information about the house itself would be greatly appreciated.  Such as, how big is it?  How many rooms & levels?  Was it considered a "modern" house?  How many servants were requried to run the house?  Did its size allow for guests and entertaining?

Thanks in advance for any information!
