As Russia celebrates the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty, Skinner Inc.  is proud to present the diverse and eclectic Fletcher Collection of Imperial Russia. The auction will take place on Saturday, April 6th in its Boston gallery

After over fifty years working with auction houses and specialized dealers worldwide, Fletcher has amassed a collection reflecting the splendor of Russia’s cultural Golden and Silver Ages, which includes yet another magnificent collection of photographs of the family's of Emperor Alexander III and Emperor Nicholas II.
