Treasures of Imperial Russia

The entry below is a synopsis of our speakers talk on 17th July 2017.

Mr. Robert Moon gave us a presentation today entitled “Treasures of Imperial Russia”. Roberts’s presentation was a historical account of the Cathedrals, Crowns, Imperial Chairs and the Czar’s from1613 to 1913.

The first photo was of red square naming the buildings around the outside from the Kremlin to the street of shopping where foreign countries would sell their wares the most famous of shops there was the Fabergé outlet and several of his items were shown.

The background to the fall of the Imperial family was covered and it was speculated that the religious side of the Russian people was returning after the purges failed to remove them from the country. Many of the palaces were described with their roots in Italian styles, the one special palace was a copy of the palace of Versailles only it had more glitz than the original, the fountains being operated on water pressure from its source rather than using pumps to supply the required pressure.

The whole presentation was very informative and sometimes humorous throughout which kept all the men involved.

Questions followed on several points to conclude this very interesting presentation..
