Peter Robinson replied to Peter Robinson's discussion Porcelain Romanov Imperial Presentation Egg and Lukutin papier mache eggs in the group Whadja Find Today
"Thanks Tom. An update. The porcelain egg is indeed an Imperial one - very honest, good condition - milky white and beautiful with no chips or cracks. The larger egg is papier mache and certainly 19th century, can't see a mark, but probably…"

"Just ask Google! Similar porcelain egg sold for $3,500. USD.  Others shown too. Another similar next to a red cross egg has price shielded, but states it's in the Hermitage…"

"Thanks. Good point about tracking down Sotheby's lot numbers. I wonder whether there has been a publication or research on this? I know someone did something on British Library accession labels on books a while ago, which was an interesting…"

"A good start to answering these questions is Nicholson Baker's Double Fold. Written in the transition between microfilm and the digital age, it raises a number of highly pertinent questions about how the role of newspapers in forging and…"

Porcelain Romanov Imperial Presentation Egg and Lukutin papier mache eggs

Dear All,I was most pleased to get hold of these three lovely Russian eggs. A certain seasonal symmetry to it all. The two papier-mâché eggs are mid-late 19th century and probably by the Lukutin factory (I have yet to receive them for closer inspection). The porcelain white egg is an Imperial presentation egg circa 1913 given to relative and acquaintances by the Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna (it is her cipher in gilt).  The larger of the two eggs has a crack, but the other two are in pretty good…See More

"I hope you're right. This would have been a custom piece from the 19th century, so you would expect hand-cut dovetails, etc. But I think you'll see what I mean about carving quality if you compare these two pictures, yours and one from the…"

Jeff Guy replied to Peter Robinson's discussion Look what I found, a rare Italian Stipo a Bambocci Cabinet!!! in the group Whadja Find? Ask Us! Identification and Evaluation
"It has a great look. But I wouldn't be convinced without more serious examination that it is a period piece, and not a 19th century repro. The carving quality is not what I would expect, nor the apparent age of wood. But of course this is based…"
