Dolls and Toys of Imperial Family to be Displayed in St. Petersburg
Topic: Exhibitions

Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana Nicholayevna with their dolls

St. Petersburg will host a unique exhibition next week, Dolls and Toys of the Imperial Family. The exhibition is organized by The World Dolls Foundation. The curator of the exhibition, Daria Kiseleva, is an avid collector, restorer and artist of historical dolls. 

The exhibition coincides with the 400th anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty and is similar to the exhibit held in the Alexander Palace at Tsarskoye Selo in 2011. I had the opportunity to see some of the toys and dolls from this exhibit during my visit to the Alexander Palace last summer where they were on display in glass cases in the newly restored State Rooms. 

After the revolution, a significant part of the collection of toys and dolls of the Imperial family was transferred to the Toy Museum at Zagorsk (Sergiev Posad). Among them were the dolls belonging to the four daughters of Nicholas II: Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, made in the late 19th - early 20th centuries by famous Russian and German companies of the time. 

The exhibition will run from May 29th to June 2nd, 2013 at the Central Exhibition Hall of the *Manege, which is situated near St. Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg.

*The Manage is the former riding academy for the Imperial Horse Guards. After the Revolution the building was used as a garage for the NKVD. A second floor was added to the building in 1931.
