In the third picture in the posting 2/25 at 11:13 by Grand Duchess Ally, what is in Alexandra's hair?  Is it a tiara or flowers?

Thanks

I think it's a large bow.

Yes, I does look like a bow to me too. Btw, Ally, what kind of letter is this?! -->
One of her most stunning pïctures.

It was a gift from either Dagmar or Alexandra towards her sister Thyra Duchess of Cumberland. I posted a sort alike picture of the miniature of Alexandra in the Thyra and her daughters thread. Many imperial and royal gifts that have belonged to the Hannover family have been auctioned during a recent auction at I believe Sotheby's or Christie's. Main (Faberge) items came from Dagmar the empress (dowager) of Russia an her family, as gifts fore her sister's family. It really makes me sad to see al this royal historical items disappear around the world!

I think there was a lot of selling of Thyra's belongings in the last few years. I did not see jewels though...

Alexandra looks rather cranky in this photo, perhaps she'd had enough of the photo session?!

Perhaps its just me, but there is a strong facial resemblance showing in the photo between the then Princess Alexandra and the current Queen Margarethe of Denmark .



Love the hair!

I believe that when this photograph was taken, she was still very much recovering from the trauma she endured during her bout of Rheumatic fever earlier in the year! I believe this photograph dates from sometime in mid 1867.

If this one has been coloured, I do not know the artist...

Ally, that colored picture was handtinted for someone like this lovely lady (a victorian  colorizer)




And now back to Alix...

Thank you Katenka! I know pictures used to be tinted, but I didn´t want to "steal" anything so I wrote those things....

Wow, thank you for this picture!
Some colorizer were real artists, while others... were amateurs, judging the outcome
