  • Pre-Revolutionary Treasure Found in Derelict St. Petersburg Palace

    Construction workers in St Petersburg have unearthed a pre-revolutionary treasure trove, found in a derelict palace during restoration works. More than 1,000 pieces of precious tableware, cutlery and jewelry, were found in the derelict palace of the Russian noble families Trubetsky and Naryshkin, wrapped in newspapers dating from 1917 and hidden in a secret storage area between two floors of the palace. Construction company Intarsia is conducting restoration work at the old palace and declared the find last week. The company said the first part of the treasure was found where two of its building workers were apparently discovered trying to smuggle out some pieces under building rubbish. Further investigation then revealed a larger hoard. The found objects will be handed over to the St. Pet...

  • RUSSIA: ST PETERSBURG: ANTIQUES ARE BEING SMUGGLED OUT OF COUNTRY

    Russian/Nat Russia is being drained of her national treasures. Antiques are flowing out of the country at an alarming rate. Billions of dollars are lost and priceless treasures are disappearing, never to be seen again in Russia. The smuggling of antiques has become the Russian underworld's third biggest business, second only to the arms and narcotics trade. Every day hundreds of planes fly in and out of Russia, bringing thousands of visitors. When they leave, most take a little bit of Russia with them. But while many tourists are satisfied with a few matrioshka dolls or a traditional Russian fur hat, many others take home souvenirs a lot more valuable. Customs officials at Russia's international airports have stepped up efforts to crack down on antique smuggli...

The company said the first part of the treasure was found where two of its building workers were apparently discovered trying to smuggle out some pieces under building rubbish. Further investigation then revealed a larger hoard. The found objects will be handed over to the St. Petersburg city Committee for Historical Preservation, but observers expect that there will be private claims on the treasure from surviving relatives of the two families.

Russian/Nat Russia is being drained of her national treasures. Antiques are flowing out of the country at an alarming rate. Billions of dollars are lost and priceless treasures are disappearing, never to be seen again in Russia. The smuggling of antiques has become the Russian underworld's third biggest business, second only to the arms and narcotics trade. Every day hundreds of planes fly in and out of Russia, bringing thousands of visitors. When they leave, most take a little bit of Russia with them. But while many tourists are satisfied with a few matrioshka dolls or a traditional Russian fur hat, many others take home souvenirs a lot more valuable. Customs officials at Russia's international airports have stepped up efforts to crack down on antique smuggling but admit that they are fighting an uphill battle. Yevgeny Fioctistov heads a special team working with the St Petersburg customs. They have collected an impressive array of icons and other valuable antiques from foreigners but also from Russians who have taken advantage of their new travel freedoms to engage in what has become a multi-million dollar industry. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "In Russia, like in the rest of the world, theft of antiques and national artefacts is growing. Russian police and customs officials have determined that we are losing three trillion roubles (600 (m) million U-S dollars) every year in smuggling. And even these figures are rising." SUPER CAPTION: Yevgeny Fioctistov, Chief of Criminal Investigations into Theft of Russian Antiques Customs officials at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo airport say they've prevented more than 700 smuggling attempts a year, but that represents just the tip of the iceberg. Individuals involved in the illegal activity range from foreign tourists, to Russian politicians, to high-level diplomats. Recently one of Russia's most famous smuggling cases was brought to court. A leading Russian lawyer, Dmitry Yakubovsky, was caught red-handed in an attempt to smuggle precious manuscripts. Ironically, Yakubovsky had been appointed by President Boris Yeltsin to look into government corruption. His attempt to sell over 89 manuscripts would have brought him a payment of up to 250 (m) million dollars. Sentenced to five years in a prison camp, Yakubovsky's case was a rare success in the battle to curtail smuggling. But the majority of smugglers go unnoticed. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "It's absolutely obvious that the theft of antiques in Russia has taken third place in the crime world. It is second only to arms and narcotics smuggling." SUPER CAPTION: Yevgeny Fioctistov, Chief of Criminal Investigations into Theft of Russian Antiques The famous Peter and Paul fortress houses the remains of the Russian Tsars. But it's also currently running an exhibit of recovered Russian artefacts. Customs officials confiscated so many treasures in 1996 that they decided to exhibit their cache. Relics from all eras of Russian history adorn the walls -- from antique jewellery to ancient Orthodox icons. And the trade in Russian history continues. At this market in St. Petersburg traders are in a constant search for cheap antiques. Russians buy at low, low prices from individuals desperate for cash. They then sell the goods to foreigners at a higher price or to middlemen who smuggle the goods out of the country. At Pulkovo airport the usual stream of tourists and Russian travellers pass through customs checks. Although some of the relics they are concealing will be discovered, most will go undetected. Every day, with every plane, Russia is losing a little more of its national heritage.

This would date from about 1880-1890. And its typical of their work, where they would use a taxidermy bird, and then articulate it to make it sing again. The movement in the base is a single spring clock work motor, driving two pairs of bellows and a whistle-cam, which produces the bird song." 15. Wide of Leigh Gotch 16.

So when you gave this to the young child, in this case this was 'to Ted, many happy returns of the day from Lady Eleanor'. First of all, what he should have done was eaten the biscuits, that we have inside, we still have them, he never did. And then once you've eaten the biscuits, the young boy or young child has a toy to play with. In this instance, it is a sports coupe, very typical of the kind of flash car that would have been around on the roads in the 1920s." 17. Close of biscuits in tin 18. Pan of hand written message 19.

He's also a slight rarity because he's what we call a centre seam, it has a seam going up the centre of his head. Of which this is put down to one in seven bears have this. It's when they came to the end of the mohair cloth, they has half left. So instead of throwing it away, they had to halves to make the bear up. Lovely bear.

30-6098 TSAR NICHOLAS II'S WINTER PALACE ARMOIRE Towering just over eleven feet high, this magnificent ash armoire was specially created to reside in the Winter Palace, the residence of Tsar Nicholas II, the last known Russian Emperor. Masterfully crafted, the majestic piece took 26 years and a team of 14 artists and sculptors to complete, and no attention to detail was spared. Corinthian columns, stepped arches, elaborate turrets, and urns lavishly adorn the amazing architectural work, which is truly the finest example of the cabinetmaker’s art. Nicholas II became Emperor in 1895, during a period of great political unrest. Prior to the Revolution of 1905, Nicholas moved his headquarters from the Winter Palace just south of St. Petersburg to Tsarskoye Selo, the summer home of the Tsars where he remained until the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. This armoire and a similar library cabinet eventually surfaced in the cargo of a freight-ship in Ghent, Belgium, in 1935. After the owner of the freight-ship passed away, both cabinets remained untouched until 1940 when they were seized by Ghent customs officials due to unpaid harbor charges. Created in 12 boxes, the two pieces were sold to a local cheese import/export firm who assembled the cabinets in a warehouse. The magnificent Russian cabinets were then publicly exhibited during World War II, drawing large crowds to see the “famous Russian cabinets.” Since the war, this cabinet has remained in the hands of private collectors, until now. The Winter Palace, one-time residence of the tsars and now the home of the Hermitage, is the most famous building of Imperial St. Petersburg. The Hermitage was built in 1762 for Empress Catherine the Great to house her private collection and has since become, along with the Louvre, the world’s largest museum of art.

A $20 million Faberge Imperial Easter egg, lost from the public eye for decades before it was saved from the melting pot by a U.S. scrap metal dealer, is to go on show for the first time in London in more than 100 years. Last seen displayed at a 1902 exhibition in St Petersburg, the 8.2 cm golden egg - commissioned by the Russian Emperor Alexander III as a gift for his wife for Easter 1887 - was seized by the Bolsheviks during the chaos of the 1917 Russian Revolution and disappeared for years in the United States. "A hundred years ago in St Petersburg it was shown when the Tsarina lent it to an exhibition, a charity exhibition and since then it has passed through many hands; it has travelled through revolution and war, the turmoil of twenty century Russia which can't be underestimated and then found its way to the Mid West (America) where it was then reawakened and this is the Egg waking up," Kieran McCarthy, director of the Wartski antique dealer, told Reuters. By chance, an unidentified man paid $14,000 for the egg at a bric-and-brac market in the American Midwest with the intention to sell it for scrap metal. However, unable to find a buyer, he searched the Internet and realised he might have the egg that was made for Empress Maria Feodorovna. "Well it literally walked in thorough our front door. This is Wartski, and I was sat at my desk here and in walked a gentleman very, very modestly attired, and incredibly nervous also. He walked up to the desk, never said why he was here but he handed me a sheath of photographs. And in these photographs were picture of the Third Imperial Easter Egg. The missing Faberge treasure," continued McCarthy. London's Wartski antiques dealer, whom the man approached with his find, bought the egg for an unidentified private collector, who allowed it to be put on show in a four day exhibition from April 14-17 in its small showroom just off the city's luxury shopping belt Bond Street. McCarthy added that for the art historical community and for the Faberge world, the re-finding of the lost Imperial Egg was likened to finding a missing Rembrandt. "The egg will be on shown for 24 hours and then it may disappear again and may not be seen for, who knows, I would not be surprised if it didn't come out for another 112 years," he said, adding they were receiving calls as far as South Africa and Australia from people intending to fly in to see the egg. Slightly taller than a chocolate cupcake, the ridged yellow gold egg sits on a tripod pedestal with lion paw feet, which is encircled by coloured gold flower garlands strung from cabochon blue sapphires topped with rose diamond set bows. Made by Faberge's Chief Jeweller August Holmstrom, it opens to reveal a lady's watch by Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin, which has a white enamel dial and diamond set gold hands. "If you image Faberge as being the greatest goldsmith and the Tsars as being the last gasp of pretty much feudal patronage, this egg is the production of that meeting; a meeting of what is now a lost dynasty and a lost goldsmith, and the two of them brought together produced the most amazing objects which are the product of that time and of course the life at that time for those at that level of society was incredibly luxurious. It was all about craft and skill and the egg displays Faberge's craft and skill to its up-most," said McCarthy. The eggs made by Russian jeweller Peter Carl Faberge are seen as treasures that only billionaires and royalty can ever hope of collecting. Current owners include the Kremlin and Queen Elizabeth. Faberge made 50 of these Easter eggs for Emperors Alexander III and Nicholas II from 1885 to 1916, and until its recent rediscovery, the Third Imperial Faberge egg was among eight lost eggs. Two others are thought to have survived the revolution. "It just shows that you never know," said McCarthy, when asked whether hopes remained of finding the other two. "We never thought this one would turn up and literally it was on somebody who walked through the front door." Entrance to the April 14-17 exhibition of the Imperial Easter Egg is free, and is open from 1000-1600 GMT.
