JOUETS des enfants IMPERIAUX - ALEXANDER PALACE
Toys of the Imperial children on display at the Alexander Palace.
Grand Duchess Olga (1895 – 1918) holds a toy, 1901. Below is the same toy.
I’m so very skeptical of things like this - the chocolate stained gloves purported to have belonged to Anastasia, etc.
For this one at least I say absolutely no way that is what she is holding in the picture. I’m pretty sure the top picture is a real cat, and the bottom picture shows a stuffed animal sitting up. In the top picture the cat is on its belly.
I’m pretty sure Olga is holding a real cat in the picture. It also has a little dark patch on it’s tail, so it can’t be the same as the toy below.
The girls could have had a toy like that but I don’t think its in that picture.Photos © Tsarskoye Selo State Museum PreserveTsarskoye Selo is another step closer to a revival of the Children’s Rooms' collections at the Alexander Palace, thanks to recent donations from the International Association of Doll Artists (IADA).Svetlana Pchelnikova, President of IADA and our Friends Society’s Art Patron, handed the donations over to the Museum at the 9th International Doll Salon in Moscow.The most valuable gifts are two antique dolls (see above). One of the 1900s by the Société Française de Fabrication de Bébés et Jouets (S.F.B.J.). The other is a German Kestner doll of the 1860s-90s in a long white dress with a black lace apron and a lush black wig. Dolls made by these firms were created for the daughters of Tsar Nicholas II, who played with them in the Children’s Rooms of the Alexander Palace.Photos © Tsarskoye Selo State Museum PreserveThe other gifts include a modern replica of an old black toy carriage with a Prussian crown (above left), a toy tricycle (above right), and three replicas of some late 1800s – early 1900s dolls (below left), made by the Mexican artist Patricia Ramos Molina in 2010–12.A German benefactor Nadezhda Othmer donated antique children’s fishnet gloves to the Museum. Lyudmila Titova of Sergiev Posad added to our collection some publications from the late 1800s – early 1900s: La mode illustrée #8 of 25 February 1872, a coloured gravure inset to La mode illustrée #1 of 1870, a children’s book Our Menagerie of 1906, and clothes for children and dolls.

This project started in 2010 and now brings together over 50 specialists from different countries of the world.© Tsarskoye Selo State Museum Preserve. 26 November, 2013
