Thanks for clearing that up. 1950's is pretty recent.

Eric, you sound triumphant here.  We were clearly talking about different photos.  I was responding about the ones of Princesses Maud and Victoria which clearly WERE taken in the 1890's or, specifically, 1890, as stated by Emperor of the Dominions.  I'm sorry, but is it always necessary for you to post needless, follow-up remarks about the very obvious?

No...I was always talking about the Fort. I did not see interiors of it before and was exited. The rooms of Maud and Toria were mirrors of those of their mother, hardly surprising at all.

More like Vicky. There is another of a man on the right which I believe could be Fritz.

Thanks...I guess the position of the hands is a giveraway. Who is the adjoining male portrait on the right ?

Well...At least I got one right. I wonder where the Vicky portrait was hung...maybe in another room ?

Please, Can any tell me more about sofas and armchairs at White Drawing Room and Blue Drawing Room at Buckingham palace?
Who made them, and when?

Thanks

Hard to say as they may have been uphoisted through the years. Originally the furniture of Buckingham Palace came from Carlton House, another of George IV's houses.

I know that the most furniture came from Carlton House, but I hope that someone know who made this briliant sofas (at White and Blue Drawing Room) and when!?
