Dear katmaxoz,

First of all, a happy new year to all!

Katmaxoz, thank you for posting this picture. I am very interested in Fabergé fans and would love to know in what magazine this ad appeared. And please, can you tell me why you say this fan was made for Princess Youssopoff?

thank you!

Thank you Nicolá De Valerón!

So Christie's is right about the man but slightly wrong about the name.

Now can you please explain why you think the man you encircled in your post #34 is the same VK? To me he looks totally different, more "blond blue eye type". One cannot change that much, can it?

Hi all,

I am terribly confused on who is who in this subject. I tried to find some more info on a "Vladimir Kinkadze" and found this forum page and first I see is that the name I have seems to be spelled wrong...

I got the name from the December 2009 Christie's London auction of photoalbums and portraits containing images of Vladimir. http://www.christies.com/LotFinder/lot_details.aspx?from=searchresults&intObjectID=5274766&sid=5c0e275f-383a-46cc-a68b-dfb2f1aa3097 Click to enlarge.

Please can anyone tell me if the guy on the pix with GD Tatiana is Vladimir K. and if he is not, who is he?

Thanks!

The Imperial Family / Re: Weddings of the Romanovs

Is there somewhere a wedding photo of Marie Pavlovna, Grand Duchess Vladimirovich (Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin)

Best books on Fabergé Eggs are:
Fabergé, Tatiana, Proler, Lynette G. and Valentin V. Skurlov. The Fabergé Imperial Easter Eggs, 1997 and
Lowes, Will, and Christel Ludewig McCanless. Fabergé Eggs: A Retrospective Encyclopedia, 2001.

If you want to know all the ins and outs, go for the Lowes and McCanless Encyclopedia.

22
There are many, many books indeed. Here is a list: http://fly.hiwaay.net/~christel/bibliography.htm
I would recommend von Habsburg, Géza and Marina Lopato. Fabergé: Imperial Jeweler, 1993.

Dear morvilaRomanov,

I know, but Douglas and RomanovFan4Ever asked who the men on the photo with Anna were and as I was so glad to know something too, I made the post ;-))

re posts #91 and #99 by Douglas and RomanovsFan4Ever.
The right man standing in the back is Prince Chakrabongse from Siam (now Thailand).
See wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Chakrabongse_Bhuvanath_of_Siam,_The_Prince_of_Phitsanulok

I think the men are wearing the uniform of the Corps des Pages for that is where the Prince was studying while in St. Petersburg.

Other Palaces / Re: Alexander III Denmark cottage
« on: January 02, 2010, 04:00:15 PM »
Here you can see The Kejserens Villa in Fredensborg: http://www.mieks.com/research/danpalaces-kv.html. I do not believe it is the same house as on the first photo, but it looks a bit alike.

The Kejserens Villa is one of the "palaces" depicted on one of the Fabergé Imperial Easter Eggs, the Danish Palaces Egg.

This is where the Brasovo Estate was: http://bazz-linser.livejournal.com/155793.html .

;)

I forgot the 1899 Pansy Egg, it has 11 small portraits of the Romanovs; and the 1912 Tsarevich Egg has one of the Tsarevich too!
