The Ante Room at the Tessin Palace is decorated in blue and gold. The overdoors are copied after paintings by Salvatore Rosa. All the original furniture has long since gone and the present Baroque chairs were commissioned in 1912 to replace the missing pieces. #hakangroth #tessin #tessinpalace #tessinskapalatset #stockholm #sweden #baroque
Winter Palace Furniture rediscovered. Originally, the Louis XVI styled suite of silvered furniture adorned the Silver Salon of the Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna in the Winter Palace, St Petersburg. Its designer was the architect N. V. Nabokov, who decorated all of the private apartments of Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina’s Alexandra Feodorovna. It was made in master craftsman N. F. Svirsky’s carpentry workshops.
