Thanks  a lot Nick and Robert for your information!. What i have is a jeton, i bought it for its beauty and for being related to g.d.Tatiana. It´s not made by Faberge and, of course,  i´ve never thought it being her property but something presented( might it be by herself?) to people working for her comitte. However i have no document to certify this.

You are most kindly welcomed, Konstantin. I wish you well.

 Has anyone run into any Romanov Antiques, or knows of someone who owns some?

I am the proud owner of one of the coronation beakers, and it was a very exciting moment when I stood near the foot of the Red Staircase at the Kremlin. ;D

Hallo everybody!!!

My nickname was Konstantin before and i asked for advices regarding the cross my family possess. I would like to inform you that the cross with 20 other imperial items given to Yugoslav diplomats in USSR were sent to Kremlin two weeks ago and presumably we will have the results in month or two. Among the other items were pearl necklase and diamond broche, all of them presumably in former belonging of the Imperial Family. I will post the results as soon as i receive them. I would like to thank everyone for the help they offered me.

Best Regards

I have a Coronation beaker, a St. George cross medal, a medal given for Zeal, and a Tercentenary jeton. My dream is to one day own a Nicholas autograph. Does anyone here have one?

One of our finest treasures is a kopek dated 1898.   It was found in the cave church of the Feodorovsky Sobor and gifted to us.

Only one kopek, but it is priceless.

Today after almost a month i received an information on the origin of one of the Jewels that belonged to the Russian Imperial Court. The black pearls donated by a Russian diplomat to the Yugoslavian Ambasador Gojko Sekuloski in the 1960's were in formal belongings of a person named Marina Petrovna, a russian noble. The pearls were given to her in 1907 for her 15th Birthday. I have no further information of this person since the official documents have not been sent yet. The cross, that i so many times talked about is the most problematic one. We sent it with all documents but from the archives they tell us that we are missing some kind of stamp. We do not know what is going to happen. I will post the future info as fast as i can,

Regards

I have a plate from the Livadia Palace, marked with a green cypher on the bottom: H II 1909.

It has a mauve and gold border with LIVADIA in the same color painted with many flourishes in cyrillic.

I'd like to think that maybe the Imperial family dined on it. It's not in the best condition but that doesn't really matter to me.

I'm guessing it wasn't used for formal occasions but rather for everyday use.

Hello
my family is owning some memorys of russia and we're proud of them because they show that we have served russia. I don't think that they are Romanov Items. The problem with these things is that my grandfather was not telling much about russia after they left russia in 1917. For him this was the past. So we have some things but don't know the story behind. For example a piano with a 8 cm diameter imperial eagle inside, a banknote written "with best wishes - nikolai" on it, some cuttlery with the double headed eagle and things like that. If somebody wants more infprmation you can ask.
But to all who own stuff like that: it is not the material value it is the idealistic value in these things witch makes them worth to keep.

greetings joerg

I have two pieces of jewlery that were purchased in SanFrancisco in the late 1930's.  They were engagement presents to my grandmother from her second husband.  She told me that they were bought from a "very good jewelry dealer" and were part of a vast collection of semi-precious jewelry once owned by Alexandra and/or the Grand Duchesses.  The jewelry was sold off to dealers by the Revolutionary government.  Anyway that is what she believed but she also said to me that the "grain of salt" was that lots of things were sold by dealers at that time with the same story.  I had the peices looked at by someone at Samuels jewelery in San Francisco and he verified that they are from the correct era and definitly European, not American.  One is a ring, an emerald cut garnet in a simple but high-carat gold setting.  The other piece is a necklace, a cross made of round garnets in an "invisible" setting.  It is very delicate and I don't wear it but I wear the ring all the time, mostly in memeory of my grandmother (she raised me) but I do admit that I love the legend behind them and it is fun to believe that they once belonged to the Imperial Family.  Just thought I'd share the story . . .
