One of the most unique items offered is a set of 48 colour polychrome plates of the Alexander Palace interiors. These extremely rare images show the private apartments of Emperor Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, and their children. Taken in 1914, they allow us a rare glimpse into the home of the last Russian Imperial family while they were still in residence at the palace. They have been listed at between €3,000-5,000.
