The first time that I see Erzsi's portrait by Arpad Koppay in color. Unfortunately it is not the whole portrait but a large part of it!

You are very welcome!! After a long time without being lucky enough to see it in color I thought that this portrait was possibly lost (or even destroyed, as unfourtunately have happened in many other cases), but I'm glad to see that it still exists and hopefully someone of us can find the whole verssion soon. Beautiful colors!

A better quality photo of Erzsi's wedding gifts. According to the site, she received among all the jewelry, Empress Sissi's famous Edelweiss-Star diamond set (lower part at right) designed by  A. E. Köchert.
