The history of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna’s Imperial Jewel Collection, learn more about the Lalique Winter Pendant of gold enamel and sapphire, from her own drawing

Ksenia was especially talented, as we see from her depictions of even intricate pieces: the enamelled and jewelled winter landscape by Lalique (n°249 in her jewellery album) that Sandro gave her for Christmas in 1900 is instantly recognizable as the firm’s work and is rendered in exquisite detail. 🙂 Thank you for use my infos in the auction of the albums in 2023!
„NEW“ Tsars Treasure – A mystery is this imperial diamond briolettes‘ tiara, which is on the picture of the Tsars Treasure of Tobolsk, clearly to recognize, on the large table, which was on display, together with the 154 jewel items. It was pictured but not on the jewel list. Probably it was broken in the center. Another royal briolette tiara is know from the danish royal family, which look a like it parts. See in the middle, above on the top of the pic and I believe the arches are variable to move to build arches or like these pattern on the picture.The whereabouts is unknown.
