Oh, Joanna, another thing, sorry.  Do you know if there was always a gate on the imperial family side of the palace?  A few posts up, Nemos posted a pic of a gate that had been moved there.  Just wondering what was there during N II's time.  Thanks again.

Лично я узнала места расположения балконов дворца ( их было несколько) по яйцу Фаберже «Александровский дворец».
Там прекрасно видны и балконы и маленький садик с Императорской стороны и со стороны Английской половины и даже садик перед фасадом дворца.
Смотришь на дворец и его балконы как бы сверху.

Personally I have learned  the locations of balconies of a palace  on an egg Faberge « Alexander Palace ».
There are perfectly visible both balconies and small садик from the Imperial side and from the English half and even садик before a facade of a palace.
You look at a palace and his balconies as though from above.

The Danini gates leading from Dvortsovaya of the AP driveway appear to me as original from photographs of Nicholas II walking there. The Imperial emblems of wreaths are of iron with the main gate for carriages/cars and two smaller side gates on each side for individuals walking through. The gates that Nemos posted were located on the Farm road leading from Dvortsovaya.

I am processing through thousands of photographs and will possibly have upload by Sept/Oct as I am working on project. I will try to do some of telephoto exteriors for you soon.

Витраж из Александровского дворца в Царском селе ныне хранится в Павловском музее-заповеднике.
Stained glass of the AP is now stored in Pavlovsk. I am wondering if any relates to this window and if they have documentation.

Башенка на крыше дворца, а это не голубятня ?

The exterior balcony or terrace of the palace was rebuilt by Danini and he used Quarenghi's original railings with additions.  He also built the beautiful Neoclassical gate of the palace outside the Imperial wing.  Alexandra was involved in desiging it.  The door too the balcony was from the Maple Room and is easy to see.  The window had to be modified for the doors that were put in.  The balcony was assembled from preexisting parts/molds.  You can see these same exact arabesque railings at Peterhof and in the Winter Palace. The balcony was the work of Danini as well.  The balcony was painted light blue.

I see someone mentioned stained glass windows. Where were these and does anyone know what they depicted?

There were stained glass Tiffany transoms above the door of the Maple Room and the New Study that led into the corridor.  There was opalised glass in the cornice of the Maple Room (really, if people could see the Maple Room as it was they would see what a marvel it was) and panels around the mirror on the balcony that were backlit.  The Maple Room balcony also had inset panels of crystal or stained glass.

The Mauve Room a plate glass window that were unique in the palace and also a huge arched greenhouse like window, that I think had lightly colored panels, but I am not sure.

There were colored glass panels in other rooms - much like you would see at the Kottage.  I should go through and check.

Bob, I have seen a b/w photo of the transom above the door to the corridor of the Maple Room and it does look lovely.

The watercolour by Yury Naprentsev of the playroom of Alexei 1931 shows a 3-paned transom above the door that appears to be coloured glass.

 1.На фотографиях 1941 года хорошо видно узорчатое окно( оно там отражается) в зеркале над камином.
2. Описание данного окна есть в книге В.И.Яковлева.

Lilianna, do you have a page number for Yakovlev's description?

Yes, I think that it is the transom in the Maple Drawing room.

Я имею в виде не Кленовую гостиную, а Сиреневую. Посмотрите в зеркало над камином. Там прекрасно отражается необычное окно. В Сиреневой гостиной 2 окна. Я имею в виду окно, которое находится около двери в Палисандровую гостиную.


I have in the form of not the Maple drawing room, and Lilac. Look in a mirror above a fireplace. There the unusual window is perfectly reflected. In the Lilac drawing room of 2 windows. I mean a window which is about a door in Палисандровую a drawing room
