Thank you for sharing the image! What exactly was a refugee certificate? Why was it needed?

It was probably first given to her when she settled down after she escaped Russia during the revolution.

Although since thats 1955 it suggests she continued to have it renewed and never became a citizen of another country. If she had gotten French citizenship, which is where I believe she and Felix settled, I don't think she would need a refugee certificate anymore.

This is just my guess though and I could be completely wrong.

About the refugee certificate: I don't know Irina's later life history that well, but it's possible she became a refugee after the fall of France and its occupation by the Germans , 1940/45, and in the immediate aftermath of the fall of Nazism in 1944/45, depending on where she had been living.

 On the other hand, she certainly was a Russian refugee after her escape from Russia with Felix in 1920. Perhaps France had some form of resident alien status for those in her situation. Thirty-five or more years is a long time for that to be regularly renewed, but I guess it's possible. Would love to find out about this.

Wonderful pics of Irina in the 1920s.  She looks regal in any era.

 Actually nothing to see. Today I attended the exhibit and that's a profound dissapointment - one can see more images and items in on-line articles than there. Really - nothing to see.

Svetabel, of course, is right in her opinion of the exhibition, especially from her point of view as specialist. I, as an enthousiastic amateur, received a lot joy from the exhibition. It is organised in the big ballroom. This hall is nomally closed and thus now in use for this exhibition. To walk in this big hall, known from the splendid balls organised by the Shuvalov family, is a great experience in itself! Also, the exhibition on the Items purchased at that Coutau-Begarie auction, has been extended by materials from the Russian State Archive and from the Faberge museum itself. Those items from the State Archive are rarely on display and made this exhibition extra interesting. In the end, when this exhibition is closed, also the materials purchased on that auction, will be tranfered to the State Archive. It is so interesting and touching to see letters, notes, written by hand by Felix, Irina and other people we only know by name and from books! So there is a lot to enjoy in this exhibition!

Rudy, please, you are a specialist as well : )). Yes, probably, I was expecting too much from the exhibition and was ready to see all the items one could see in on-line articles. So my the dissapointment was as large as my expectation. I agree that original letters are a joy to see and read, and probably I am used to such items  as researching in the Archives is a constant reading of original documents...
