Frohe Weihnachten 2020 | Merry Christmas –
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
…drawing and watercolour was considered essential for the upbringing of most of the Grand Dukes and Duchesses were quite competent artists. 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!
