Schmuck und Juwelen der Romanovs - Zarin Marie Feodorovna

Das Collier besteht aus 2 verschiedenen (von insgesamt 5 unterschiedlichen Blumen-Motiven). Insgesamt waren es 45 Elemente, also wahrscheinlich von jedem Motiv 9 Stück. Es wurde für Katharina die Große angefertigt und je nach Bedarf auf die Roben angenäht, als Borde oder Saumabschluss.
Oben im Bild Zarin Marie Feodorovna anlasslich eines Kostümballs, ihr Oberteil der Robe ist komplett mit den Ornamenten ausgeschmückt.

Dazu kommen noch die Quasten-Elemente aus Diamanten, am Bolerosaum, die ebenfalls aus der Schatzkammer stammen und aus beweglichen Diamantelementen besteht, ein unglaublicher Effekt, wenn diese vielen Diamanten auf den Quasten bei jeder Bewegung funkeln.

Jewels of the Romanovs - Empress Marie Feodorovna Collection of Diamond Dress Ornamants

,
from the Russian Imperial Court, composed of ten flower ornaments joined together to form a necklace, six ornaments styled as daisies and four as tulips, each stem tied with a ribbon bow, set throughout with old mine cushion-shaped and pear-shaped diamonds, within closed-back mountings of silver (from the property of Irma Adler).


Each designed as an old-cut diamond flower head within the pear-shaped petals to the diamond ribbon-work stem and leaves, circa 1760, each 4.1 cm. long, made for Catherine the Great (1729-1796).
One sold by Christie's on 16 March 1927 as part of lot 36, the other probably from lot 37 Lot Notes

These charming bodice ornaments once formed part of the magnificent collection of Russian Crown Jewels, some of which date back to Peter The Great (1672-1725) which glorified the wealth and power of the Romanov Dynasty.

After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the Crown Jewels were confiscated having been stored in nine huge strong boxes, which came to light for the recesses of the Moscow Armoury Hall. During 1922 the intensive job of listing and photographing everything took almost four months and was conducted by five of Russia's leading jewellers, under the guidance of the well known mineralogist Prof. A E Fersman assisted by S N Troinitzky the director of the Hermitage Museum and A N Benois, a well known art critic and painter.
Their work formed part of an illustrated inventory published in 1925 titled "Russia's Treasure of Diamonds and Precious Stones".

Some of the collection was sold to a consortium of British and American buyers, whose identity is unknown. One hundred and nineteen of the jewels sold to this syndicate were offered for sale by Christie's in London on 16 March 1927 at a sale entitled "An Important Assemblage of Magnificent Jewellery, mostly dating from the 18th century, which formed part of The Russian State Jewels".

'A Pair of Diamond Floral Sprays', and lot 37 'A Set of Three ditto'. The disparity between the 1927 illustration and the two brooches, is probably due to the purchase by the same buyer of all five brooches
