Miek, I put this comment on Joanna's blog but in case you do not see it, I thought that I would put it here as well:
 
It appears the miniatures may have been removed three times.

Once by Hammer Galleries to identify the artist noted in their letter since there is no signature on the paintings. How did Hammer confirm it or is it because the artist was Fabergé’s main painter of miniatures? What is the date of Hammer’s letter? Do you know if Hammer received it as part of a consignment from Moscow’s Diamond Fund?

Another time when the person wrote the place names on the back of the miniatures.

And again when the Virginia Museum later attached a note and needed to confirm the handwriting. Do you know the date of the note?

Was the 1896 Egg ever in London to allow the erroneous claim of Queen Mary’s handwriting?

It makes one question if the miniatures are the originals. Is there photographic proof prior to 1917 when the egg was removed from Alexandra’s study?

Cathy, Catherine, (on WP blog too)

I find in general that Armand Hammer knew a great lot about the Imperial Easter Eggs he got out of Russia. No clue who taught him, but most of todays errors originated long after Hammer had sold the Eggs. I do not know if ever the miniatures were removed. I do know however that 10 of 12 of the miniatures are signed by Zehngraf and painters do that usually on the front of their work, however small, so there was no need to dismantle the Egg. PHOTOS of the miniatures were used to identify the buildings.

There is one photo of the Egg still in Moscow, before being sold to Hammer. (that is on my website). For all your other questions, contact the VMFA.
